This was actually two series. Until 1961, it presented Harveytoons, led by Casper the Friendly Ghost, originally produced by Famous Studios. From 1961-62, it showcased Beany & Cecil cartoons produced by Bob Clampett. See more »
"Beany & Cecil" first aired on Sunday mornings nearly forty years ago (!). Their major sponsor was Mattel toys, whose icon at the time was a young animated boy named Matty, hence the name of the show (there was no sign of Matty when the series was brought back for a short run on cable about six years ago). I seem to remember Matty as having a crown on his head while he repeated the company slogan, "You can tell it's Mattel- it's swell!"
