Time for Beany! 9-24-50 (2 of 2)~ https://youtu.be/TUSGHun-WKc
In 1949, Clampett created “Time for Beany,” a 15-minute daily live puppet show for KTTV in Los Angeles. Played by legendary voice actor Daws Butler, Beany was a cheerful lad who flew with the help of his propeller-driven beanie. His devoted friend was Cecil the Sea-Sick Sea Serpent – voiced by the great Stan Freberg…”Time for Beany” quickly gained a following and graduated to daily syndication as part of the short-lived Paramount Television Network in an extended half-hour format.
By 1961, “Time for Beany” had been transformed from a live-action puppet show into a cartoon series, re-titled “Beany and Cecil” (ABC, 1962) and produced and directed by Clampett through his own Bob Clampett Productions…Although only a single season of “Beany and Cecil” was produced, the cartoon resided in syndication on the network’s daytime children’s lineup from spring 1962 through fall 1966.
