Bonkers is a classic animated series that aired on Toon Disney from 1993 to 1994. Created by Disney animation veteran Jymn Magon, the show follows the adventures of a lovable and quirky cartoon character named Bonkers D. Bobcat, voiced by Jim Cummings, who is a former cartoon star turned police officer in the city of Hollywood.

Bonkers is a zany character with a knack for getting himself into sticky situations, but he is also a dedicated policeman who takes his job seriously. He is partnered with gruff and straight-laced Detective Lucky Piquel, voiced by Earl Boen, who is not amused by Bonkers' antics but respected his abilities as a cartoon character with unusual skills, like his ability to change his shape or produce unusual sound effects to solve crimes.

Together, the odd couple sets out to solve a variety of crimes that take place in and around Hollywood, from petty theft to more serious crimes like organized crime and international espionage. Along the way, they encounter a diverse cast of characters, both human and cartoon, including some familiar faces from popular Disney movies, like Wile E. Coyote and Yosemite Sam.

One of the most unique aspects of Bonkers is its blending of traditional animation and live-action footage. The show features a combination of hand-drawn and computer-generated animation, overlaid on top of live-action backgrounds, creating a distinctive visual style that sets it apart from other animated series of its time.

Another standout element of the show is its voice cast, which includes some of the most accomplished voice actors in the industry, including the legendary Frank Welker, who voices a variety of characters throughout the series.

Overall, Bonkers is a fun, fast-paced cartoon series that offers a unique blend of comedy, action, and drama. It is a feast for the eyes and the ears, with its colorful animation and lively voice acting bringing its characters and settings to life in a way that is both entertaining and engaging.

While it only ran for a short time, Bonkers has gained a devoted following amongst fans of classic animated series, who appreciate its unique style and memorable characters. Whether you're a fan of traditional hand-drawn animation, or enjoy the blend of animation and live-action footage, Bonkers is a classic show that is well worth checking out.
