    The Metro Goldwyn-Mayer Cartoon Studio with Jack Mercer

  • Here’s my guess:

    Harvey Films, Inc starring Herman and Katnip?

  • Rene Lopez

    It was released by Famous Studios, and it starred Herman and Katnip.

  • Chrisbo

    That’ll teach me to read the whole thing first!

  • Chuck Hensey

    Famous Studios with Herman and Katnip

  • Roberto Severino

    Famous studios! Herman and Katnip. 1953. Damn. I’m too late. Oh well.

  • Contest over! William wins the first prize; Crisbo, B. Janoff, Tory and Brad win the Peanuts DVD. Congratulations and thank you to everyone who entered. Believe it or not, the book actually got its title from that cartoon… Go Herman and Katnip!!!

  • Eric

    Famous Studios
    Jack Mercer?

  • The book is better than the cartoon. Not a bad cartoon, but a great book. Congratulations to Leonard on the anniversary (and you too, Jerry…great research work)

  • Christopher Cook

    Curious that Leonard Maltin took the name from a cartoon made by a studio he was harshly critical about in the book. But, c’est la vie.

  • David Breneman

    It is a great name, but Herman and Katnip sucked. There was some creepy, sadistic stuff making it onto the screen in that series.

    “Hmmm, that sounds logical.”
