One of the all-time greats from the late 50's
30 January 2003 | by (Chapel Hill,North Carolina) – See all my reviews

Its amazes me that this these classic cartoon characters Heckle and Jeckle are no longer shown on either Nickelodeon,Boomerrang,or even Cartoon Network and I wonder why??????????? They need to get WITH IT! and frankly...............


These outrageous magpies were the stars of Terrytoons galaxy of cartoon line-up of Saturday Morning and Sunday Morning shows which featured also in the category Mighty Mouse,Deputy Dawg and so many more that were featured during the late-1950's and well into the 1960's and the early 1970's(which originally ran on CBS-TV from 1956-1972)and it was sponsored by General Mills cereals. As for the birds themselves,you had a smart alec New York bird,and a proper speaking British one who were always getting into all sorts of trouble and for one it was hilariously funny especially with the birds getting into mischief. A must see to what they will do next. Brings out the kid in all of us. Very good.

However,Heckle and Jeckle were so good that they made a comeback in 1979 with "The New Adventures of Heckle and Jeckle" which all new episodes but with little fanfare. Lets hope that Cartoon Network gets it right with bringing these characters back.
