Hammocks Animation was the original production company for Nature Cat (formerly known as Fred and the Nature Gang.)

History Edit

It was founded in 1957, when the company first made a comic series called Five K. Gagnon, which ran from the late 50's to the early 60's. A TV series based on the comics aired on CC Network from 1962 to 1981. They also co-produced Frosty the Snowman. In 1976, they co-produced Frosty's Winter Wonderland. In the late 70s, the company began producing children's animated television series. Those are Wally Down Under (1977-1978), which was the first show by the company, Fred and the Nature Gang (1979-1983; 1988-1994), which was the company's most famous work, Adventures of Benjamin the Magical Train (1981-1982), Lenny the Genius (1983-1993), and the animated soap operas Beautiful Times (1968-1995), Southland (1978-1995) and The Animals (1983-1995), which was co-produced with Procter & Gamble Animation, along with Beautiful Times and Southland. There was a short series for Fred and the Nature Gang in 1978, before the actual series started a year later. The company continued to produce the 6 TV specials for Fred and the Nature Gang (later known as Nature Cat in 1994), in association with H.O.T Entertainment. In 1992, they co-produced Frosty Returns.
