  • Beany and Cecil began in 1949 as a kids' puppet show titled "Time For Beany". It was created by legendary Warner Bros. cartoon director Bob Clampett and featured the voices of Daws Butler and Stan Freberg. The series followed the hijinks and adventures of the crew of the Leakin' Lena: Captain Horatio Huffenpuff, Beany (a little boy with a beanie cap), Beany's pal Cecil the Seasick Sea Serpent, and Dishonest John, their arch-nemesis. The show acquired a following of such luminaries as Jimmy Stewart, Albert Einstein, Frank Zappa and Groucho Marx during its seven-year run.

  • Thanks for the memory, oroboros! Beany & Cecil was once my all-time favorite show--in reruns...ahem. ;-> And I'm still a huge Stan Freberg fan (as are most of my siblings).

  • Yeah, he's great. I had an older friend who knew him personally and regaled me with great stories!
