Storyline

Time for Beany was an American television series, with puppets for characters, which aired locally in Los Angeles starting in 1949 and nationally (via kinescope) on the improvised Paramount Television Network from 1950 to 1955. It was created by animator Bob Clampett, who later reused its core characters in the animated Beany and Cecil series. The principal characters were Beany, a plucky young boy who wears a beanie; the brave but dimwitted Cecil the Seasick Sea Serpent, who claimed to be 300 years old and 35 feet 3 inches tall; Beany's uncle, the pigheaded Captain Horatio Huffenpuff (whose name is a play on Horatio Hornblower), familiarly called Uncle Captain; Dishonest John, whose cape and handlebar mustache clearly identified him as the villain. Written by Randall Robinson

Trivia

Thanks primarily to Robert Clampett's clever scripts and the outstanding voice work of Daws Butler and Stan Freberg, "Time For Beany" was a show whose appeal stretched well beyond that of the average children's show of the time. This is evidenced by the fact that the show's fans included Albert Einstein, Lionel Barrymore, Ethel Barrymore, Aldous Huxley and Adlai Stevenson. See more »

time for beany memories.
22 June 2006 | by (west haven, ct usa) – See all my reviews

I remember that the Leakin' Lena was voyaging over the open sea when the lookout (Uncle Capt.?) spotted a dot way ahead on the horizon. What could it be??? It took days to get close enough to see that it was in fact an atoll. Getting even closer a sign was made out with the name on it. Nothing!!!!!This was around the time that the US Gov. sent Bikini to it's eternal reward and I have classed this bit as best Jibe ever. And who could ever forget Tearalong the Dotted Lion!!! Also a kooky bird that may have looked a lot like Big Bird. Don't remember the name but my Dad (a band leader) knew the march that was it's theme music. Thanx everyone for jogging my memory.
