Here is a short series that I used to watch but I can't find it. I live in the middle east,as a kid I watched cartoons all the time,we had Nickelodeon. Our Nickelodeon was really popular because it was known for connect with the auidience. But it sadly shut down due to bankruptcy in 2010.Nickelodeon has dubbed so many shows from Nickelodeon US,but it sometimes added other shows/shorts outside the network.there was a short series that used to air on our Nickelodeon that I hardly remember watching it as a kid but no details.
This took place in Antarctica or something (icy place)A boy and a polar bear run from an old man,I think the man wanted to skin the polar bear but he fails,there was no talking.Music,laughs and character noises only.Don't get me wrong,it didn't scare me I honestly thought it was pretty funny and I wanted to rewatch it but I don't where to begin with.
It does sound a bit familiar. I seem to recall having seen a show in the late 80s or early 90s with one-off non-episodic shorts. I seem to remember a claymation short about an eskimo child & either a polar bear cub, a seal cub, or a baby penguin, being hunted by a shark or orca or poacher. Or perhaps my brain is trying to cram Seabert, Serge the Seal Cub, Pingu, Creature Comforts, & Gumby into a single entity.
