  • I used to love that cartoon, mean as they were. I'm hoping it hasn't scarred me. :-)

  • Heckle and Jeckle was a theatrical cartoon series created by Paul Terry, and released by his own studio, Terrytoons. The characters were a pair of identical magpies who calmly outwitted their foes in the manner of Bugs Bunny, while maintaining a mischievous streak reminiscent of Woody Woodpecker. Their names were inspired by Robert Louis Stevenson's famous novella Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.

    One magpie spoke with a British accent, while the other spoke with a Brooklyn dialect.
