Heckle and Jeckle are inseparable magpies (presumedly twin brothers), identical in appearance but distinguishably different in personality. Though both are remarkably witty, there are noticable differences between them, such as Heckle spoke with a Brooklyn (NY) accent, while Jeckle has a refined British accent. Together, they sought to con free meals and shelter especially out of the upper class, who in all honesty, presented little difficulty for the clever and mischievous birds. The synopses came from the Big Cartoon Database website. Deepest gratitude to whoever did these synopses! CAST: Heckle, magpie. Mischievous and witty, a tough bird with a Brooklyn accent. Jeckle, magpie. Heckle's twin who is also mischievous and witty, but is more refined and speaks with a British accent. Dimwit, hound. A hapless dog who is always the poor "victim" of Heckle and Jeckle. Spike, bulldog.
