ABBOTT AND COSTELLO
Produced in 1967 for RKO-Jomar, this Hanna-Barbera cartoon followed the
same route taken by the Laurel and Hardy cartoons from the previous year. The
animated version of the Bud Abbott and Lou Costello comedy team was unique in the fact
that Bud Abbott (1895-1974) himself provided the voice for his animated counterpart. In
fact, the cartoon residuals were Abbott's main source of income during his illness riddled
later years. The voice of his partner, Lou Costello (1906-1959), was provided by Stan
Irwin. These cartoons failed to capture the magic of the duo's live-action films, and the
156 episodes were only seen in a limited number of markets.
