Secret Squirrel and Morocco Mole

Secret Squirrel was a animated persona developed by Hanna-Barbera as well as the name of his part in The Atom Ant/Secret Squirrel Show on TV, that first showed in 1965. He was given their own show on saturday morning TV in 1966, titled The Secret Squirrel Show. Secret and his fez-wearing partner Morocco Mole (who sounded very much like Peter Lorre) fought criminal activity aided by the greatest weapon – old fashioned humor. Armed with only a purple hat and a white overcoat disguising a number of odd secret weapons, he – sometimes referred to as SS or perhaps Secret Agent 000 – rounded up probably the most wanted bad guys on the planet on behalf of the Double-Q Agency in Great Britain. Together with each other they evaded such bad guys as Yellow Pinky (whose name in some manner didn’t instil as much dread Goldfinger), even though James Bond fled from getting caught employing a laser embedded in his wrist watch, SS made use of a much more high technology approach – a pair of scissors he had hidden below his hat. He first appeared as part of The Atom Ant/Secret Squirrel Show in back in 1965. After just over one season together, the two title cartoon figures separated ways to superstar in their own self-titled shows.

The 30 minute The Secret Squirrel Show included 3 specific cartoon segments: “Secret Squirrel”, “Winsome Witch” and “Squiddly Diddly”. SS initially made an appearance in a prime time cartoon special titled The World of Secret Squirrel and Atom Ant, that broadcast on the NBC on 12 September, 1965. But just one year later, ant and squirrel realized they proved helpful much better together, and so The Atom Ant/Secret Squirrel Show was put together for a final season. The cartoon show would only continue until 1968, however SS wasn’t finished gracing the small monitor.More than 25 years later on, the nutty SS agent could be found in all-new shows on Hanna-Barbera’s Two Stupid Dogs, accompanied by Morocco Mole and a bull superior. SS served as a secret agent (SS’s status was “Agent 000”), getting instructions from his superior, Double-Q. Secret ended up being assisted in his escapades by fez-wearing partner, Morocco Mole. Together they fought criminal activity and evil agents employing scheming and a assortment of spy tools, including a machine gun walking cane, a set of guns stored inside of SS’s overcoat, along with a variety of tools disguised within his hat (which he almost never took of).

Secret’s unrelenting enemy is Yellow Pinkie, that is a parody of Auric Goldfinger coming from Goldfinger and Kasper Gutman from The Maltese Falcon. The last couple of episodes introduced Hy-Spy, the master of technological criminology. The episodes had been a parody of the popular spy genre, with many of his shows components satirizing those of the James Bond movies. Later, in 1994, Secret started showing up in new cartoon shows among the Two Stupid Dogs episodes. It was called “Super-Secret Secret Squirrel” which was voiced by the actor, Jess Harnell. A fresh character in “Super-Secret Secret Squirrel” is a girl squirrel named Penny (with a huge crush on Secret). In the show Queen Bea, Penny grew to become SS’s love attraction while she endeavors to battle Queen Bea for his love. In the finish of the episode, Secret Squirrel cuddles both Penny and Morocco Mole saying that he really loves all his pals.
