The Kwicky Koala Show is a Saturday morning cartoon produced by Hanna-Barbera in 1981 for CBS. The program is notable for being among cartoon director Tex Avery's final works. Avery died during production in 1980.

Kwicky Koala

The headliner, Kwicky Koala (voiced by writer Bob Ogle), is very similar to Avery's popular Droopy, except that Kwicky can escape his pursuer, Wilford Wolf (voiced by John Stephenson), by moving at super-speed, which looks more like vanishing into thin air with an accompanying "beep" sound effect, much like Speedy Gonzales.
