Like the earlier series Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids, this series placed more emphasis on teaching the audience moral lessons than on entertaining them. Each half-hour episode consisted of animated versions of newspaper comic strips, including Alley Oop, Nancy, Broom-Hilda, Emmy Lou, The Captain and the Kids, and for a while, Tumbleweeds; acting as a "master of ceremonies" for this show was Foozy, a character from Alley Oop who always spoke in rhyming verse. Topics covered in this series included honesty, alcoholism, prejudice, and safety, among others.
This wasn't the first time Filmation used animated comic strips in a cartoon series; they first did this in Archie's TV Funnies, which featured some of the above comics and others, and placed more emphasis on entertainment than on moral lessons.
Fabulous Funnies ran for one season of 13 episodes.
