Topsy TV is a 1957 John Doormat cartoon short.


John Doormat is asleep after a long day at work. His wife drags him into the living room, but John wants to watch TV. His wife tries to comply with him. As John has been on his feet for days. But all he wants to do is watch TV. A bunch of gags ensue until he finally gets to watch TV. Except it's morning. So he gets ready for work and another day goes.

  • The only cartoon to credit Bernie Nagler for design.


  • When Jane pulls John Doormat away, a frame of him is still there for a split-second.
