Number 751

The Talking Magpies

This Heckle and Jeckle story is from an unnumbered issue of The Adventures of Mighty Mouse, July, 1957. (Since TAOMM had three or four publishers over the decades, someone at the Grand Comics Database has figured out that it's actually #134.) I posted the Mighty Mouse lead story from this issue in Pappy's #392.

This is dedicated to my former coworker, Mike, who was as exasperated as the rest of us by our boss, a man of many moods, all of them bad. "He's a regular Dr. Jeckle and Mr. Heckle!" Mike once said of him.

I posted a hilarious Heckle and Jeckle story by John Stanley from the Gold Key incarnation of this comic in Pappy's #422.

There's another funny Heckle and Jeckle story at Big Blog Of Kids' Comics here.

Thanks for the link, Pappy.

You know, the story you've posted looks a ton like the work of Terrytoons animator, Jim Tyer.

Pappy said...

Mykal, I've seen Jim Tyer's name before in connection with the Terrytoons stuff, but thanks for the information. I defer to your knowledge.

Kind of you to say, Pap; especially considering all us comic book bloggers trod a path made clear by your trailblazing efforts.

Pappy is the ORIGINAL trailblazer in more ways than anyone even realizes!

Man this is great stuff. And I miss Heckle and Jeckle on the tube too... you couldn't escape them when I was a kid, now they're totally MIA everywhere.
