Trapper Rawhide Clyde must have spent a considerable amount of time questioning his chosen profession. He was outsmarted at every turn by the witty but loony wildcat Crazy Claws (essentially Groucho Marx with fur), whose pelt Rawhide coveted, but whom he could never catch.
The assistance of Rawhide’s ever present dog Bristletooth should have made the capture of Crazy Claws easier, but the mangy mutt was just as susceptible to being duped as his master. Rawhide could overcome Bristletooth’s occasional bout of insurrection with a bribe of beef jerky, but even in tandem the two were no match for the savvy of Crazy Claws.
Park lawman Ranger Rangerfield did his best to maintain the peace. Although he was a stickler for rules and regulations (and thrilled to dispense bits of knowledge related to nature), his ineffectiveness garnered him little respect.
Crazy Claws was one of several six-minute segments on the half-hour, The Kwicky Koala Show. Other segments included Kwicky Koala and Dirty Dawg, as well as one-minute fillers titled The Bungle Brothers that played between the longer segments. The Kwicky Koala Show lasted for one season consisting of sixteen episodes.
