Hyppo and Thomas (カバトット Kaba Totto) is an anime created by Tatsunoko Production. Thomas is a cunning bird who sponges on Kaba, the good-natured hippopotamus. Although Thomas is a dependent, living in Hyppo's big mouth, he always acts lordly and tries to outsmart his simpleminded host. However, their basic friendship and cooperation endures despite their frequent quarrels. In the 1990s, it was dubbed into English as The Wacky World of Tic and Tac from Saban Entertainment.
