"Who's our Star Time guest for today, Uncle Croc?"
Charles Nelson Reilly, already a fixture on the CBS version of Match Game, was the crocodile-suited star of this three-month Filmation series on ABC, a parody of the Animated Anthology programs with live presenters that were in nearly every major TV market in the 1950s and 1960s. Reilly's co-stars were Alfie Wise as Uncle Croc's sidekick, Rabbit Ears, and Jonathan Harris as the director, Basil Bitterbottom.
The three animated segments were:
- "Fraidy Cat", about a nervous alley cat visited by the ghosts of his eight previous lives;
- "M-U-S-H", a canine parody of MASH whose title expands to "Mangy, Unwanted, Shabby Heroes", and
- "Wacky and Packy", in which a caveman and his pet mammoth are transported to 20th-century New York.
Live-action segments included The $6.95 Man.
