Wally Walrus, another character in the Walter Lantz stable, was a comic foil for Woody Woodpecker in that character’s early cartoons, starting in 1944. Typical of the type, he was dim-witted with a short fuse.
The animated comedy team of Heckle and Jeckle was another Terrytoons production. Created in 1946 for the theatrical cartoon, ‘The Talking Magpies,’ they continued in that format and, later, on television in the programs CBS Cartoon Theatre, The Heckle and Jeckle Cartoon Show, and The New Adventures of Mighty Mouse and Heckle and Jeckle.
From the 1965 cartoon series which aired Saturday mornings on ABC, The Milton the Monster Show. No flypaper can hold him! No insecticide can stop him! Etc.
