Hippety Hopper is an animated cartoon character in the Warner Bros. Looney Tunes series of cartoons.
Robert McKimson introduced Hippety Hopper in Hop, Look and Listen (1948), which created the mold for future Hippety Hopper cartoons: baby kangaroo Hopper escapes from the zoo, the circus, etc., and is mistaken for a giant mouse by Sylvester. ( Like on this 78)
Sylvester tries to capture and eat his "prey", but the innocent and infantile Hippety mistakes Sylvester's predations for a game — a game of rough-housing, to be exact. Sylvester is repeatedly punched, kicked, juggled, spun, and pounced, but each failure only strengthens his desire to have the "mouse" for lunch.
None of Hippety's cartoons ever did anything spectacular, like get nominated for an Oscar. Nor was he a big licensed character. He didn't move on to new media, such as comic books, either. But like practically all Warner Bros. characters, his cartoons have been seen, in one TV venue or another, by generation after generation — and will probably continue to be seen for a long time to come.
