Q: I remember watching a show when I was little. It had a little spotted animal with a long tail, and he was always around a monkey in a pink T-shirt. What was the name of this cartoon? Where has it gone? I haven’t even seen it anymore. Has it been discontinued? If so, when?

A: You are thinking of Marsupilami, whose friend was Maurice, a gorilla. Maurice was indeed in a pink T-shirt. The animated shows aired back in 1993-’94. There were only 13 episodes—and were based on a European comic book character from the 1960s.
