The Shnookums and Meat Funny Cartoon Show was a short-lived Disney series from 1995 about a cat and a dog who constantly fought while their owners left them home alone. The show featured gross-out gags and extreme slapstick in a similar vein as Ren & Stimpy, albeit heavily-censored in order to fit Disney Channel's censorship guidelines. It came packaged with two other back-up cartoons called Pith Possum: Super Dynamic Possum of Tomorrow and Tex Tinstar: Best in the West. It had a very brief run on The Disney Afternoon syndicated line up and was later recycled into reruns on Toon Disney. As of now, all 13 episodes, that are confirmed to exist, have shown up on YouTube.

Unconfirmed Missing Episodes
TV.com lists three more Shnookums and Meat segments that are not mentioned in other guides. These episodes include "Dog Pound Rock" where Shnookums has to save Meat from the pound, "Send in the Clones" where Shnookums gets cloned, and "Circus Life" where Meat joins the circus. There is no mention on the Pith Possum and Tex Tinstar shorts that would have been packaged with them. These are most likely hoaxes because the descriptions for the confirmed episodes are horribly inaccurate as well as the alleged airdates of the summer of 1995 on Toon Disney when the channel did not even exist.
