Yakkity Yak was a short-lived show created by Australian animator Mark Gravas for Nickelodeon.
It was a show about Yakkity, a yak who dreams of becoming a famous comedian, and his friends, an anthropomorphic pineapple named Keo (don't ask why) and a human named Lemony (and on some occasions, a robot girl named Penelope)
