Hoot Kloot was a series of 17 theatrical cartoon shorts produced by DePatie-Freleng Enterprises from 1973 to 1974.
Sheriff Hoot Kloot is a diminutive, short-tempered lawman who tries to maintain order in a remote western town. He is aided by his loyal horse Fester whom Kloot refers to simply as "Horse." Fester remains Kloot's honest and faithful friend, often giving the Sheriff the benefit of his homespun wisdom while battling various outlaws including Crazywolf, a looney sheep-stealing wolf.
Hoot Kloot was later broadcast as part of the NBC Saturday morning cartoon series The Pink Panther and Friends.
