Spinning out from the show Raw Toonage, Bonkers debuted on February 28th 1993 and ran for four seasons (61 episodes and 4 compilation episodes) and was some kind of Roger Rabbit/Scooby-Doo mash up. The show follows washed up cartoon star Bonkers D. Bobcat (voiced by Jim Cummings), who once had it all but lost it all and then became a police officer. Bonkers is made the junior partner of Detective Lucky Piquel (also voiced by Cummings), a grim and ill-tempered human who hates cartoons. Each adventure usually saw the duo attempting to solve a case in California under the watchful eyes of Sargeant Francis Q Grating (voiced by Ron Perlman).
Usually Bonkers would do something to win over Lucky – it would go badly wrong and almost ruin the case – then Bonkers antics would somehow save the day at the end. Later in the series Lucky got a job with the F.B.I. and Bonkers got a new human partner Officer Miranda Wright (voiced by Karla DeVito).
