1980's CBS cartoon series, Drak Pack, showed the adventures of "Drak Jr." (Dracula's nephew), Howler and Frankie (the teenage descendants of The Werewolf and Frankenstein's monster) as they teamed up to fight the forces of evil. In this case, "evil" was O.G.R.E., the Organization for Generally Rotten Endeavours, led by Dr. Dred and his henchmen Toad, Mummy-Man, The Fly, and Vampira.The voice cast starred Alan Oppenheimer ("Skeletor" of He-Man) as uncle Count Dracula, Jerry Dexter ("Alan" of Josie and the Pussycats) as Drak Jr., Bill Callaway ("Aquaman" of Super Friends) as Howler and Frankie, Hans Conried (narrator of many Dr. Seuss specials) as Dr. Dred, Don Messick ("Scooby" on Scooby-Doo) as Toad and The Fly, Chuck McCann ("Ben/The Thing" on Fantastic Four) as Mummy-Man and Julie McWhirter (the voice of the animated Jeannie) as Vampira.
The Biskitts are a group of tiny anthropomorphic dogs who live on Biskitt Island and are committed to guarding the crown jewels of Biskitt Castle. Modeled after Robin Hood, the Biskitts still serve their recently deceased king while performing good deeds for the underprivileged inhabitants of their tiny island. In the narration it is explained that due to their good reputation for responsibility and security, other kings have entrusted their treasures to be safeguarded by the Biskitts.The villain of the series is the king's mean-spirited younger brother, King Max, who rules the neighboring Lower Suburbia. Why Max isn't crowned the new ruler of the Biskitts is never explained (although it is presumed the old king barred Max from succeeding him on account of Max's mean nature). In lieu of a proper coronation, Max constantly schemes to steal the jewels with the help of his hench-hounds Fang & Snarl and his jester Shecky (although Shecky was rather dimwitted and not always loyal to Max, as he even made friends with a Biskitt who shared his love of practical jokes). Biskitts are also in danger of being captured and eaten by a large wildcat named Scratch.
Top Cat, known as T.C. to his alley cat friends, is a mischievous prankster who lives in a trash can in the alley ways of New York City. He and his alley-cat cohorts think of get rich schemes and assorted pranks which are mostly involving and aimed at Officer Dibble, their nemesis and friend. T.C. manages to get out of his tight situations with hilarity and charm and even helps Dibble on occasion who is underscored by his overbearing sergeant.
Very short lived, the series was one of a number of shows that failed seeking to capitalize on the success of a video game. Everyone from Donkey Kong to Q*Bert has come and gone in animated form almost completely unnoticed, but my theory is that the producers of these sorts of shows don't really expect them to last past one or two seasons. The downside is that cartoons can cost even more than a live-action show, so in the case of Pac-Man, who really wasn't promoting anything besides a video game that everyone on the planet was already playing, just can't be thought of as a success.

The Mumbly Cartoon S
Produced by Hanna-Barbera, "The Mumbly Cartoon Show" focused on a dog detective named Mumbly (who is also featured in the "Laff-a-Lympics" cartoon). Mumbly dresses in a trench coat, drives a beat-up old car and solves crimes using his dog senses. His character was modeled after the TV detective Columbo in terms of appearance and mannerisms.

The story revolves around a group of soldiers and mountaineering specialists who battle the evil General Lucas Plague and his squad of mercenaries.
