    [one of the few cartoon series which was aired in Prime-Time,
     in this case because it appealed on two levels -- adults could
     appreciate some of the jokes and puns which zinged over the
     heads of younger fans. Jay Ward also created the first made-for-TV
     cartoon series "Crusader Rabbit", which see. 

     In 1961, when the series changed networks from ABC to NBC, the
     title was changed the "The Bullwinkle Show" and segments were 
     juggled around.
