1959: "Rocky & His Friends" debuts on television starring Rocky the flying squirrel and Bullwinkle the moose along with supporting segments featuring Dudley Do-Right, Peabody & Sherman, and Fractured Fairy Tales. The show, known popularly as "Rocky and Bullwinkle," was never actually called by that title while it was on TV. After its first two seasons on ABC, it moved to NBC and was renamed "The Bullwinkle Show" before being canceled in June 1963 after its fifth season.
