Barker Bill's Cartoon Show (cartoons)

    (CBS, 1953 - 1955)

    [Paul Terry's "Terry-Toons" had successfully introduced characters
     including "Mighty Mouse" in theatrical cartoons during the 1940s,
     and even some black and white cartoons he created in the silent
     era such as "Farmer Al Falfa"; this series was a showcase for his
     work on early network TV; In some markets, the series was aired
     twice weekly for 15 minutes each; and others aired the two halves
     put together as a 30-minute Saturday Morning cartoon show...

     During the 1950s - early 1960s, Terrytoons made "Heckle & Jeckle",
     "Deputy Dawg", and a couple of regulars on "Captain Kangaroo" --
     which were "Tom Terrific" and "Mighty Manfred, The Wonder Dog"]
