Wake, Rattle and Roll is an animated comedy that aired in syndication.

The series was live action with cartoon segments. The live segments featured Sam Baxter, a teenager who screens cartoons on his talking robot D.E.C.K.S., which he built from discarded VCR parts. He is joined by his grandfather, Grandpa Quirk, and his girl friend K.C. The cartoons they screen are The Fender Bender 500--a Wacky Races update with Dick Dastardly and Muttley racing their new vehicle, the Dirty Truckster, against Yogi Bear, Top Cat, Huck Hound and Quick Draw McGraw and other H-B classic stars, and Monster Tails, about famous movie monsters left behind in a castle.

A year later, the series moved to the Disney Channel and was renamed Jump, Rattle and Roll. Due to it being aired with no commercial breaks as the Disney Channel was a premium network, the half-hour was padded out with episodes of Dino & Cavemouse (from 1980's Flintstone Comedy Show) and Undercover Elephant (from 1977's CB Bears).
