Need help from the Canadians (non-bus ?)

Once upon a time, we used to have a C-Band satellite dish and we watched a lot of CBC in the clear for many years before it went totally digital and we could not get it unscrambled (right in the middle of the season of DaVinci's Inquest... bummer). Anyway, there was a cartoon that the kids and I used to watch that was very much like Jay Ward's Rocky & Bullwinkle. Do any of you remember this show and what was the name of it? It's been bugging me for a while and I can't find it by doing a web search.

This is where I bought my programming from after they started scrambling. Once upon a time, even channels like Disney were in the clear. Only XXX and HBO, SHOWTIME and the like were scrambled.

If I could remember that far back I wouldn't have forgotten how to speak Quebecois French. I have a memory like Swiss Cheese.

One of the local stations used to run DaVinci's Sunday nights after the late-late news (i.e. wee hours Monday morning) in analog. I later found they sometimes had it on a digital .2 or .3 sub-carrier after the HDTV transition. I have watched several episodes while channel surfing.

The show certainly is an acquired taste, being nothing like the US cop shows. I found it interesting. If my wife walked in and I explained what I was watching, she would just shake her head and leave.
I missed the transition episodes from Coroner to Mayor, though.
