Bullwinkle and Rocky Role Playing Party Game (TSR 1988)

What was this? Was it based on a cartoon or something? What made it viable as an RPG?

It is licensed from the cartoon series.

It's not an atypical rpg, as there is no one set 'Game Master', instead the players rotate that among each other. It sounds more like a role-playing board game.

Thanks! I have never watched this cartoon, is there anything about it that would make it ideal for an RPG? :)

Looks like adventures are generated through cards. I wonder how that works...

It has been years since I have seen the cartoon, but from what I remember it is comedy slapstic.

You can watch clips through this YouTube search.
