Toon Legends: Heckle & Jeckle in The Intruders (1947)

Time to wind the clock again, this time to 1947 for Heckle & Jeckle in "The Intruders". The video comes from a broadcast on the USA Cartoon Express.




CBS now owns the rights to the characters, but are reluctant to commission anyone to revive the franchise. What are they waiting for?

Rating: B.

CBS also owns the Terrytoons library.

Unless I'm mistaken, Austin, just about everything from Terrytoons is on DVD now.

Actually, as far as the Terrytoons originals are concerned, I believe only a few Mighty Mouse that fell into the public domain are out on DVD. Same goes for the Mighty Heroes, but that includes most if not all of those. But neither have ever received an official (or high-quality) release yet.

Probably some of the very early Mighty Mouse ones, I'd think.

"Not a official one"? Define, please.

Well the Filmation Mighty Mouse DVD set was an official release, but I know nothing about the Heckle and Jeckle one. The MM DVD set includes 3 original Terrytoons Mighty Mouse cartoons as bonus features, so that probably represents the totality of officially released Terrytoons Mighty Mouse cartoons, sadly.

You'd think H & J would've gotten a DVD release by now, too, not to mention Quackula, the house-created star who shared that 1 hour block with the magpies & Mighty Mouse.

Bear in mind that if it's out in stores as well as amazon.com, it's still an official release.
