All four crew "men" on board the Leakin' Lena had ladyloves, who appeared in the series from time to time. Cecil's "she serpent" girlfriend was Cecilia McCoy; Beany's sweetheart was Baby Ruth; Captain Huffenpuff was in love with "Ida, sweet as apple cider"; and Crowie's main squeeze was Bridget Crow-dot (pronounced "crow dough").

Animated Anarchy (for television)
7 October 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Although I wasn't even born yet when this series was first aired in the late 1950's, I got to finally see it when it was briefly revived in the early 1990's (I had read about it from a film collector's publication, where episodes were made available in the old 16mm format,and that one of the original directors/animation supervisors was none other than the great Bob Clampett,of many a Bugs Bunny short). Although the animation style was carried out on a much smaller budget than most of the animated shorts released by the major studios,it more than made up in the humour department (some of the jokes would have for certain gone right over the heads of most young children at the time). One of my favorite segments was the Beany & Cecil shorts (most of which were directed by Clampett). Other segments varied from so,so (Casper the friendly ghost was a concept that got really old fast),to pretty damned funny (Baby Huey---a gigantic duck that dressed like a baby & acted like an inbred idiot). This series hasn't got much exposure since the early 1990's, so it's safe to assume it's now locked away in some film studio vault & moldering away with time---only to be yet,another one of the forgotten aspects of animation.
