Magilla Gorilla closing

The Magilla Gorilla Show was produced by Hanna-Barbera for Screen Gems in 1964, first for syndication, and later for ABC, with Allan Melvin and Howard Morris as lead voices. It was also one of the first animated TV series produced under the sponsorship of a toy company (Ideal Toys).


Magilla lived in a pet shop owned by Mr. Peebles, who tried desperately to sell him. Whenever Magilla was sold, he was taken to some comic misadventure and inevitably returned to the pet shop.

Magilla was most often purchased by thieves. The only customer who was truly interested in obtaining the trouble-prone ape for good was a little girl named Ogee (so named because of her catch phrase, "Oh, gee!"). Unfortunately, she could never persuade her parents to let her keep Magilla.

The show's supporting segments were Punkin Puss & Mushmouse and Ricochet Rabbit & Droop-a-Long.
