Sheriff Hoot Kloot is a diminutive, short-tempered lawman who tries to maintain order in a remote western town. He is aided by his loyal horse Fester, whom Kloot refers to simply as "Horse." Fester remains Kloot's honest and faithful friend, often giving the Sheriff the benefit of his homespun widsom while battling Crazywolf, a looney, sheep-stealing dog. Hoot Kloot was later broadcast as part of the NBC Saturday morning cartoon series The Pink Panther and Friends. this is a dying art form as all Bgs are painted digitally now.
