I Am Weasel
I Am Weasel is an American animated television series created by David Feiss for Cartoon Network, at the studio of Hanna-Barbera, being the fourth of the network's Cartoon Cartoons. The series centers on I. M. Weasel, a smart, beloved and highly successful weasel, and I. R. Baboon, an unsuccessful, unintelligent baboon who is jealous of Weasel's success and constantly tries to upstage him, usually failing to do so.
It was originally a part of Cow and Chicken from 1997 to 1999, often airing as the third of three segments in an episode, after two segments of that show (except in one occurrence, where it aired as a second segment between the two parts of an episode). Eventually, I Am Weasel was spun off into its own series, which aired from June 10, 1999 to early 2000. A total of 79 episodes were produced, including those produced as part of Cow and Chicken.
