The New Adventures of Mighty Mouse and Heckle & Jeckle

The New Adventures of Mighty Mouse and Heckle & Jeckle is a 1979-1980 television series featuring Mighty Mouse and Heckle & Jeckle cartoons from the 1940s. The series was produced by Filmation, and aired from 1979 to 1980 on CBS with over 99 episodes produced. It was the second Mighty Mouse cartoon series, following the original Mighty Mouse Playhouse from 1955 to 1967, and followed by Mighty Mouse: The New Adventures, which aired from 1987 to 1989.

Each hour of The New Adventures of Mighty Mouse and Heckle & Jeckle consisted of two Mighty Mouse cartoons, two Heckle and Jeckle cartoons, one Quacula cartoon, and one episode of the 16-part science fiction serial, The Great Space Chase. Also included was "Mighty Mouse Environmental Bulletins" and Heckle & Jeckle's "Homonyms" (to add a little educational karma).

The show was shortened to a half-hour in 1980, and was moved to Sundays in its final season. In 1982, The Great Space Chase was re-edited into an 80-minute movie which had a limited release to theaters. It later appeared on home video.

In this show, Oil Can Harry has a bumbling assistant, Swifty, a fat cat that can still run extremely fast.
