German cartoons

When I passed the main station going to work today, I saw the picture of "Äffle und Pferdle" again and was reminded that we have some cartoon personalities which have been known here for many decades.
So who are Äffle und Pferdle?
I remember them from my childhood and their appearances on television and they are still well-known in the Swabian area. A monkey (Äffle = small monkey) and a horse (Pferdle = small horse).

Have a look at the door doormat on the right, too. So what have you learned?
"Hallole" means ... ?? Next time I will tell you the story about another famous cartoon personality, Lurchi, the spotted salamander.
