This was what I watched last week .. 
what will it be today ???

Go Go Gophers is a western/comedy animated series that originally appeared on the Underdog series from 1966 to 1968 before being briefly spun off as a separate series on CBS in 1968 and 1969. It was apparently created as a parody of F Troop, a western/comedy series that aired from 1965-1967.

The series is set in the late nineteenth century in the American west. There the commandant of a local United States Army fort, one Colonel Kit Coyote (voiced by Kenny Delmar) and his Sergeant Okey Homa (voiced by Sandy Becker) who is rarely called by his name. They make attempts to secure the town of Gopher Gulch by wiping out the last two surviving Gopher Indians (depicted as upright, personified gophers): Ruffled Feathers (also voiced by Becker) and Running Board (voiced by George S. Irving). However, the Gophers prove to be very clever and always manage to foil Coyote's plans.

Usually Ruffled Feathers would be the Gopher who would devise the plan to waylay the U.S. Army. The plan was communicated to Running Board in supposed Indian language. Running Board would smile and get excited as the plan was revealed to him and utter one of two catch-phrases: "Whoopee Doopee! We have fun!!" or "Whoopee Doopee! You-um genius!!". The uttering of the catch-phrase signaled a scene transition to the Gophers building of the trap to foil Colonel Kit Coyote and his men.

The Impossibles was a series of animated cartoons produced by Hanna-Barbera in 1966 and aired on American television by CBS. The series of shorts (6 minutes) appeared as part of Frankenstein, Jr. and The Impossibles.

The Impossibles were a trio of rock and roll musicians. When contacted by "Big D" (voiced by Paul Frees) about criminal activities in Empire City, they became superheroes. Like the Monkees, the group’s appearance (in their musician form) was based on 1960s pop star stereotypes, which included somewhat long hair, brightly colored (and matching) outfits, high-heeled boots, screaming female fans and, unlike the Monkees, no percussion or bass instruments. Nothing is known about their personal lives, although Fluid-Man once mentioned having an Aunt Tilly. They seemed to have secret identities though even a little child would have no trouble connecting the singing Impossibles to the hero Impossibles on appearance alone. They also seemed to change to their "secret identities" in front of the crowds they were playing to when given a mission.
