Shirt Tales


Shirt Tales was an animated cartoon that ran on NBC from 1982 to 1984.

It featured Tyg Tiger, Pammy Panda, Digger Mole, Rick Raccoon, and Bogey Orangutan. They all wore shirts which flashed various brightly lit messages reflecting the characters' thoughts. They lived in Oak Tree Park, and spent their time teasing Mr. Dinkle, the park ranger, and battling crime in and out of their hometown of Mid City. They zipped around the world in a vehicle known as the STSST (Shirt Tales' SuperSonic Transport) which could operate as a car, jet, boat, submarine, and just about any other form of imaginable ride.

  1. That's my favorite 80s cartoon! I really like the Shirt Tales. It is way better than The Snorks and Clue Club as the Top 3 cartoons owned by Hanna-Barbera Cartoons. To me Kip the Kangaroo and Pammy the Panda were my favorite characters from the show. I know my 80s Hanna-Barbera Cartoons.
