Hippo Tub Co.

Hippo Tub Co. is a lost and found company in Drain World. It's a place where stuff that falls down the bathtub drain ends up. Harley, Andy's hippo, travels there to find Andy's pirate hat and decides to stay to help return lost stuff to their rightful owners. He is helped by Norton the bird, Pete and Repete the pack rats, and Ted Tubman the handyman with a great set of pipes. This was my first toons production. We made 26 x 11 minute episodes for the CBC.

Hippo Tub Co. - Distributor - There is a trailer and images in this link. Once again product is not available in Canada. By the way, they got the director's name wrong. It's supposed to be Troy Sullivan.

Repete and Pete

Pete and Repete are a couple of brother and sister pack rats. I've watched the actors who does their voices in action. I got to attend the record sessions. They are an awesome dual.


This is the original Anne Murray recording of the song that inspired the show.
