Proof that anything can happen in a cartoon
29 August 2006 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

This is an entertaining short which openly acknowledges that it's a cartoon. There will be spoilers: In the very beginning, Jeckle points out to Heckle that, as they are cartoon characters, they can basically do anything they care to, with just a bit of thought. He then proves it, by changing into a dog and then changing back into himself. He then becomes a "one magpie band", rapidly moving from one instrument to another. This being a Heckle and Jeckle short, they need an adversary and thus find one-the bulldog who is often their opponent. Here, he's a cop, which he frequently plays. The bulk of the short is basically sight gags, consisting principally of Heckle and Jeckle harassing and irritating the bulldog, with seeming impunity-until he has "some brains knocked into my head", as he puts it, by a hammer materializing in thin air. He then turns the tables on the two magpies, because (after all) he is also a cartoon character and anything can happen in a cartoon.

Enjoyable short, well worth the effort to find. Recommended.
