Mr. Cartoon was a television program for children that aired for over thirty years on WSAZ-TV, the local NBC affiliate in Huntington, West Virginia. The show was hosted by George Lewis until 1969 and by Jule Huffman until 1995. The show ended its run in May 1995 when Huffman retired.
The program consisted of cartoons for a studio audience of children. While cartoons and commercials aired, the children would play off-camera games such as musical chairs. One of show's daily segments featured a selected audience member attempting to answer a riddle as read by Mr. Cartoon.
WSAZ brought back Beeper as a mascot. From 2009 to 2013, during winter months a graphic of Beeper appears on screen when school closing and delay announcements are made.
