I remember watching a movie on Cartoon Network as a child with two men in top hats chasing after a girl in these very colorful, very vivid scenes. The only characters are the two men in top hats, the girl, and the villain who is kidnapping her (though I remember nothing about him). One scene I remember is the villain carrying the girl over his shoulder crossing a short bridge with the two men in pursuit.

The men in top hats were an anachronistic version of ATLAS and P-body from Portal 2, one being tall and skinny, the other short and plump. The two men were definitely something out of the late 19th, early 20th century.

Oh, there was no speaking in the movie, to my recollection, so it was kind of like a very colorful, silent movie.

The animation was very similar to Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends, but it was crisper, very detailed, except somewhat steampunk. Basically, the art style is very hallucinogenic. If I were to estimate when I watched it, I would guess around 2000.

  • Currently it holds very less details. Can you specify anything else when did you watched it or any other story plot or character. Sep 4 '13 at 22:01

  • I added a comparison to the two men and an estimated era of time that the movie takes place in. Sep 5 '13 at 13:53
  • Just for clarification... These were animated humans, right? No chance of them being animated cats? Sep 16 '13 at 10:17
  • I'm almost positive they were two men in top hats. Why? What movie are you thinking of? Sep 16 '13 at 15:51

Your description reminded me of The Perils of Penelope Pitstop, by Hanna Barbera. Not sure though, as there were more than two men with hats, but have a look here.

(Funny, because I was thinking of this cartoon just the other day...)

  • Oh wow, I actually remember this cartoon! Sadly it's too old to be the one I'm thinking of. Nov 5 '13 at 15:17

Could it be "Sherlock Holmes in the 22nd Century". See if this pic rings a bell:

    What is up with her elbow interior?

I think you were looking for Laurel and Hardy (animated series), It was a cartoon based on Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy's comedic acts by the animation studio Hanna-Barbera from Hal Roach.

PS: Sorry, probably not the one since this one is old.

  • Good guess and I loved them on Scooby-Doo, but you're right it's too old. Jan 15 '14 at 17:45
