‘Secret Squirrel’ was a cartoon character created by Hanna-Barbera and also the name of their segment in The Atom Ant/Secret Squirrel Show on TV, which first showed in 1965. Secret Squirrel was given their own show on TV in 1966, branded as The Secret Squirrel Show. Secret and his partner Morocco Mole (that appeared a lot like Peter Lorre) fought against crime with the supreme artillery – old fashioned humor. Armed with only a purple cap as well as a white overcoat concealing many different weird secret weaponry, he – typically called SS or maybe Secret Agent 000 – captured probably the most fiendish bad guys in the world on the part of the Double-Q Agency in Britain. Collectively the heros evaded such villains as Yellow Pinky (whose name somehow didn’t instil as much worry Goldfinger), even though James Bond fled from getting caught simply by using a laser embedded in his watch, Secret Squirrel used an even more hi-tech method – a set of scissors which is disguised . underneath his hat. Secret Squirrel initially appeared as part of The Atom Ant/Secret Squirrel Show in back in 1965. After just over one season together, the 2 title cartoon figures separated ways to star in their own individual self-titled shows.

The half-hour The Secret Squirrel Show had 3 specific cartoon segments: “Secret Squirrel”, “Squiddly Diddly” and “Winsome Witch”. Secret Squirrel first made an appearance in a prime time cartoon special called The World of Secret Squirrel and Atom Ant, that was shown on NBC on 12 September, in 1965. However less than a year later, ant and SS realized that they proved helpful much better together, and so The Atom Ant/Secret Squirrel Series was put together for a last season. The cartoon show would merely last until 1968, but SS wasn’t finished being on the TV monitor.More than twenty five years later, the nutty agent could be found in all-new shows on Two Stupid Dogs, accompanied by Morocco Mole and a bull superior. SS functioned as a secret agent (his status was “Agent 000”), getting orders from his superior, known as Double-Q. Secret Squirrel was assisted in his missions by the fez hat wearing sidekick, Morocco Mole. The pair fought against crime and evil agents making use of shrewd as well as a many types of secret agent gadgets, including a machine gun walking cane, a collection of firearms kept inside SS’s coat, along with a variety of devices hidden within his hat (that SS infrequently took of).

Secret Squirrel’s regular enemy is Yellow Pinkie, who is a parody of Auric Goldfinger from Goldfinger and also Kasper Gutman from The Maltese Falcon. The last couple of shows brought in Hy-Spy, the expert systematic criminology. The episodes had been a mocking of the then-popular spy genre, with many of the shorts’ components poking fun at those of the James Bond films. Later, in 1994, SS began showing up in new cartoons between the 2 Stupid Dogs episodes. The show was called “Super-Secret Secret Squirrel” that was voiced by the actor, Jess Harnell. A brand new character in “Super-Secret Secret Squirrel” was a female squirrel called Penny (who has a big crush on SS). In one episode titled Queen Bea, Penny became Secret Squirrel’s love interest when she endeavors to fight Queen Bea for his attention. In the end of the episode, Secret cuddles both Penny and Morocco Mole proclaiming that he adores all his pals.
