Again, from TV EXPRESS WEEKLY, comes another
HANNA-BARBERA page - this time Mr. JINKS With
A nice little slice of the past to remind you of more innocent
times.  Personally, I love those meeces - how about you?

Kid, I mentioned in an earlier comment that I was going to look for Huckleberry Hound on YouTube - well, I found a collection of clips from the show including Pixie & Dixie. The funny thing is that I've never forgotten the two mice themselves but I completely forgot about Mr. Jinks - I mean I remember there was a cat but I couldn't recall his name or anything about him. I also thought that Pixie & Dixie had their own separate cartoon rather than being part of Huckleberry Hound. I also completely forgot the line "I hate these meeces to pieces" - but it's all come back to me now :)

I'm not sure that the Huckleberry Hound show was ever shown in its entirety in this country, CJ. (Although it might've been originally.) The cartoons were usually shown separately, as fillers in between programmes, but that may have been later. Also, without checking, I seem to remember that the cartoon was called Pixie & Dixie and Mr. Jinks may not even have been in the title. (Or it may have been Pixie & Dixie with Mr. Jinks.) I could be mistaken 'though.

IIRC, the Pixie & Dixie cartoons were a segment of Huckleberry Hound, Yogi Bear, or Quick Draw McGraw. AFAIR, they never had their own full half-hour show.

And I seem to remember the title being "Pixie & Dixie and Mr. Jinks," or "Pixie & Dixie with Mr. Jinks," but my memory could be playing tricks.

I knew about Pixie & Dixie originally being a segment of another HB show, TC, but in Britain, some segments were broadcast by themselves as 'fillers' between other (non HB) programmes.
