Racially oriented cartoons???
9 July 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I remember seeing Heckle and Jeckle as a kid, along with Mighty Mouse on Saturday morning cartoons. The whole set-up for this show was pretty funny with one cultured and one "common" bird always at odds. It was really like an early "Odd Couple" featuring magpies(?). Terrytoons Studios were thought of in a bad way by most animators, but many of them found a way to support themselves there after being let go in the slow work (and political purges) of the 1950's. The artwork was definitely broadly done in a limited style, but every kid I knew loved them. I remember being truly ticked off when the cartoon was sited as being considered racial sometime in the 1960's---it seemed to me that everything was either too sexually or racially oriented then. Recently, they were brought on CHEAP DVD versions by a company named Digiview Productions with between 10-12 episodes per disc. I've only seen them at Wal Mart and they are only a buck. Good picture and clear sound, though---lots of other old cartoons, as well.
