Beany and Cecil

The New Adventures of Beany and Cecil was a very short-lived revival of Bob Clampett's Beany and Cecil. It was produced in 1988 by DIC Animation City. Only five half-hour episodes aired out of the thirteen in production during its original run. This incarnation of the show was developed, produced, and directed by Canadian animator John Kricfalusi, who would later create Nickelodeon's The Ren & Stimpy Show.

ABC had been negotiating for the production of the show with the Clampett family, who insisted that John Kricfalusi would be part of the production. The long negotiations delayed the start of production to mid-July, causing much of the animation to be rushed in order to meet the September deadline. Tensions rose between Kricfalusi and ABC over the tone of the show, leading to an uncomfortable atmosphere for the show's crew. The more ABC strove to soften the show, the more Kricfalusi pushed for shocking and offensive material.[1] The Clampett family were ultimately not very happy with the cartoon, but remained supportive of Kricfalusi.[2] ABC cancelled the show after a handful of episodes as they found the humor not suitable for children's programming.[3] As a result, ABC replaced it with Hanna-Barbera's The Flintstone Kids.


Thirteen half-hours were proposed, but only the first five were broadcast:[4]

Title Directed by Written by Original air date
1"The Framed Freep"John KricfalusiChuck LorreSeptember 10, 1988 (1988-09-10)

Captain Huffenpuff leads Beany and Cecil on a mission to King Muckamuck of the tropical islands of Howareya to capture a three-headed monster called the Freep who is menacing them. When they arrive, King Muckamuck's daughter Princess Princess claims that the Freep wouldn't normally attack them, causing Beany and Cecil to investigate. They eventually find the Freep is actually a giant robot piloted by Dishonest John in his plot to turn the island into a vacation resort for evildoers called Club Bad.

Note: During the "Club Bad" part of the episode, there are bad guys who are parodies of Doctor Doom, Joker, Frankenstein's Monster, Red Skull, Doctor Octopus, Jason Voorhees, Darth Vader, and Ming the Merciless.

Beany takes Cecil to the dentist to deal with a toothache. As Cecil waits for the dentist to return, Dishonest John poses as a nurse in order to place a radio receiver in Cecil's mouth in order to make Cecil think that he is listening to his conscience.

After getting a letter from them about cancelling his membership if he doesn't prove his bad ways, he is approached by some Brotherhood of B.L.E.C.H. members who will judge him and do a painful way of cancelling his membership. When his attempts to bring doom to the Leakin' Lena fail and DJ is given one final chance to prove himself, they are overheard by Beany who suggests to Cecil and Huffenpuff to act like they are in danger to have the Brotherhood of B.L.E.C.H. members impressed with DJ.
