Here is a list of the Wedgie cartoons:
- Main Article: Nacho Bear
Nacho Bear seems to have been the most popular series of all the Wedgies, even receiving a second run in 2010. The short centers on an orange bear and a green raccoon who are always after one single nacho chip and will stop at nothing to catch it. Nacho Bear won't settle for any other chip; he wants only that specific one. Nevertheless, despite all their efforts, neither Nacho Bear nor the raccoon ever get the nacho chip they long for.
This short series ended with 7 shorts after its second run in 2010.
- Main Article: Big Baby
Big Baby centers on a diapered 6-foot-tall baby who protects the city of Centerville. He often gets into different jobs and situations and saves a number of people's lives — being an infant, more or less accidentally.
- Main Article: Calling Cat-22
Calling Cat-22 centers on a secret agent black cat who is always on a mission to discover information about dogs. 22 is always doing something relaxing when he gets his assignment from his chief, Gato Primo, and always ends up in trouble. 22 generally tries to question one certain dog, Guthrie, an orange dog with one large canine tooth who wears a blue un-buttoned shirt, though sometimes Guthrie's friend, Percy, is there, too. The name of the series is a pun on the term Catch-22; "a frustrating situation in which one is trapped by contradictory regulations or conditions."
The Bremen Avenue ExperienceEdit
- Main Article: The Bremen Avenue Experience
The Bremen Avenue Experience centers on a group of teenaged animals who form an amateur garage band. The group includes a dog, a cat, a rooster, and a horse. The short's name and characters are taken from the story, "The Bremen Town Musicians," from the fairy-tale collection of the Brothers Grimm.
The Talented Mr. BixbyEdit
- Main Article: The Talented Mr. Bixby
The Talented Mr. Bixby centers on an African-American janitor who always gets into trouble when serving as a subsitute in such jobs as a career counselor, teacher, referee, exterminator, or bus driver. The name of the show is taken from the 1999 feature film, The Talented Mr. Ripley .
- The Talented Mr. Bixby is the most commonly shown Wedgie series on Boomerang; "The Substitute Career Counselor" is the most commonly aired episode.
- The Talented Mr. Bixby has twice featured cameos from other Wedgie characters: one in "The Substitute Bus Driver," where Mr. Bixby rhetorically asks, "Does a bear eat nachos?" and Nacho Bear appears on screen, and the other in Substitute Bug Man, where pictures of Agent 22 and Nacho Bear are seen on a bulletin board with Gato 22 and Oso Nacho written under them.
- The short also started off the cartoon series The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack.
- Only Nacho Bear, Raccoon, Gato Primo, Guthrie, and the narrator and announcer from Big Baby have known voice actors.
- All of the Wedgies episodes put together would make 58 minutes.
