Magilla Gorilla was an American animated television series that aired on Boomerang from 1964 to 1967. The show followed the adventures of Magilla, a loveable and anthropomorphic gorilla who lived in Mr. Peebles' pet shop. Mr. Peebles, voiced by Howard Morris, was the pet shop owner who always tried to sell Magilla to the customers but could never seem to find anyone who wanted him as a pet.

Allan Melvin voiced Magilla Gorilla, who was always looking for a new owner to take him home. However, due to his large size and playful nature, he always ended up back in the pet shop. Magilla was a friendly and often comedic character who loved to sing and dance, and was always willing to help out his friends.

Magilla's best friend and companion was a little mouse named Mr. O'Hara, voiced by Don Messick. Mr. O'Hara was a smart and crafty mouse who often helped Magilla get out of tricky situations. The two had a close relationship and were always looking out for each other.

Throughout the show, Magilla would often get into silly and comedic situations, but his heart was always in the right place. He was a loyal friend and would always put others before himself. His innocent and childlike personality, along with his love for singing and dancing, captured the hearts of viewers young and old.

The show had a simple but effective formula, with each episode showing Magilla trying to find a new home, only to end up back in the pet shop. Each episode ended with Mr. Peebles greeting a new customer and trying to sell Magilla to them, only for them to ultimately decline.

Overall, Magilla Gorilla was a charming and enjoyable show that offered lighthearted entertainment for children and families. Its timeless appeal has made it a classic in the world of animation, and its memorable characters and catchy theme song are still beloved by fans today.

Magilla Gorilla is a series that is currently running and has 3 seasons (31 episodes). The series first aired on April 11, 2017.
