Beany and Cecil is an animated television series created by Bob Clampett for the American Broadcasting Company. The cartoon was based on the television puppet show Time for Beany, which Clampett produced for Paramount Pictures company and its Paramount Television Network beginning 1949. The series was broadcast first as part of the series Matty’s Funday Funnies during 1959, later renamed Matty’s Funnies with Beany and Cecil, and finally Beany and Cecil in the USA. Another season was produced during 1988.
Although a children’s show, it incorporated satirical references to current events and personalities that adults found entertaining, and the show also attracted adult viewers. Some of the plots and remarks were recognisable as lampoons of current political issues.
