Heckle and Jeckle is a segment of shorts that appear in Terrytoons. The cartoons star two mischievous magpie brothers; Heckle and Jeckle who love to cause trouble for other characters. Most of the shorts feature them trying to live somewhere, stealing food, and/or working jobs. Some of the recurring antagonists include Farmer Alfafa, Dimwit, and Clancy.
In 1970, the birds make a return in The New Adventures of Mighty Mouse and Heckle and Jeckle. They would make their final appearance on television with the Nickelodeon pilot Curbside but unfortunately, this never picked up.
