1963: Looney Zoo

Many Mid-South Baby Boomers will remember tuning into Trent Wood’s Looney Zoo on WMCTV Channel 5. The show aired every weekday afternoon at 4:00 from 1955 until 1971. Wood and his co-host, Tiny the Clown (portrayed by Rhodes College professor Ray Hill) delighted their young audiences with skits and beloved Merry Melodies and Looney Tunes cartoons of the day.
