Jule Huffman, AKA Mr. Cartoon, worked at WSAZ for more than forty years. He joined the television station as a singer and announcer in the days in which WSAZ produced many entertainment programs. He also was the station’s morning weatherman for years. Most people know Jule though for his alter ego Mr. Cartoon. In 1969, Jule took over the role of Mr. Cartoon and performed in this role of afternoon cartoon program host until 1995. He retired that year, but still remains one of the most popular television personalities in our region.

Jule says:
“I really did love my time when I was working at WSAZ. But I want you all to know out there, all the children who were on the show with me, I love you most of all. You made my life something special. God bless you all. Thank you.”
