Crazylegs Crane is a 16-episode made-for-television cartoon series produced by DePatie-Freleng Enterprises in 1978 for The All New Pink Panther Show on ABC.

Production[edit]

This was Crazylegs Crane's first series dedicated solely to him. Previously, he had made regular appearances in the three DePatie-Freleng animated comedies, Tijuana Toads, The Blue Racer and The Dogfather. His personality is similar to the Disney character Goofy. In the German series, this character was known as "Dummvogel", literally "silly bird".

Plot[edit]

In the cartoons that star Crazylegs Crane (voiced by Larry D. Mann), he always goes through various misadventures often accompanied by his son Crazylegs Crane Jr. (voiced by Frank Welker) and often deals with his frenemy a fire-breathing dragonfly (voiced by Frank Welker impersonating Andy Kaufman).
