YMMV: Beany And Cecil

  • Ensemble Darkhorse: The beatnik Go Man Van Gogh.
  • Hilariousin Hindsight: Pinocchio in the New Adventures episode "D.J.'s Disappearing Act" pretty much is Phillip J. Fry, ten years early.. Exact same voice and even red hair.
  • Older Than They Think: Prior to the creation of this show, Bob Clampett held a puppet show called Time For Beany, which shows Cecil's roots as a hand-puppet. (which became a Running Gag in the show, as we never see the bottom of Cecil) Oh, and Stan Freberg voiced Cecil. The cartoon was first billed as Matty's Funnies with Beany & Cecil (sponsored by Mattel toys). It aired in prime time for just the 1961-62 season, then migrated to ABC Saturday morning for five years as just "Beany & Cecil."
  • Suspiciously Similar Song: This episode of Time for Beany (the precursor to this show) features a arrangement of the Three Little Pigs song.
