The Get-Along Gang: one of a legion of 80's cartoons that rest foggy in the minds of 20-somethings everywhere. They were part Care Bears, part Shirt Tales and taught kids (you guessed it!) to get along.

The cartoon took place in a middle school or high school-esque setting; the moose played football (he was the hero, of course) and some of the characters were cheerleaders, bookworms, etc. Each member of the gang was unique in three ways: they were each a different species of animal, each represented a stereotype à la The Breakfast Club, and every character had a petty annoyance or flaw that would spark misunderstandings and conflict among the group. By the half hour's end, problems are resolved and everyone is friends again.

Lyrics

Get-Along Gang!
Get-Along Gang!
Each one's so special in his own way.
Montgomery's a leader and he's such a good sport.
The Get-Along Gang, Get-Along Gang!

There's Woolma and Dotty with the spirit.
And Bingo's a friend who doesn't ruin it
The logical Portia will figure it out...

There's more, but it gets cheesier and harder to understand from there.
