Together with the rest of the classic Terrytoons package, Heckle and Jeckle vanished from American television circa 1990óbecause the Creator/USANetwork, owner of the license, changed management and decided to simply sit on the cartoons. Ever since, the characters have slowly been sliding down the memory hole. Today, there are many who misremember the black birds as having been black stereotypes (much like Buzzy The Crow of Creator/FamousStudios or the crows in ''Disney/{{Dumbo}}''), even though their characterizations aren't actually ethnic at all.
