Heckle and Jeckle are inseparable magpies (presumedly twin brothers), identical in appearance but distinguishably different in personality. Though both are remarkably witty, there are noticable differences between them, such as Heckle spoke with a Brooklyn (NY) accent, while Jeckle has a refined British accent. Together, they sought to con free meals and shelter especially out of the upper class, who in all honesty, presented little difficulty for the clever and mischievous birds. The synopses came from the Big Cartoon Database website. Deepest gratitude to whoever did these synopses! CAST: Heckle, magpie. Mischievous and witty, a tough bird with a Brooklyn accent. Jeckle, magpie. Heckle's twin who is also mischievous and witty, but is more refined and speaks with a British accent. Dimwit, hound. A hapless dog who is always the poor "victim" of Heckle and Jeckle. Spike, bulldog.

The Heckle and Jeckle Show - Broadcast history - Netflix
Quacula made his debut on September 8, 1979, on the first episode of The New Adventures of Mighty Mouse and Heckle & Jeckle. However, cartoonist Scott Shaw filed suit against Filmation due to the fact that he had created a character named Duckula for the comic book Quack! #1 (July 1976), published by Star*Reach. The matter was settled out of court, and after 16 episodes Quacula was dropped from the show, which was shortened from an hour to a half-hour .
