The Leakin' Lena -
Sail boat featured on the cartoon BEANY & CECIL/ABC/1962-64 (a spin-off of the 1950s
puppet series TIME FOR BEANY/SYN/1950-55, a 15-minute show produced
by Bob Clampett). The Leakin' Lena was skippered by Captain Horatio
Huffenpuff, a sea-going blowhard. His crew included a small boy named Beany (voice of Daws Butler), Cecil (voice of Stan Freberg), a green "seasick" sea serpent
who sailed the seven seas with Beany; and Crowy, a black crow
navigator who lived in the ship's crow's nest.
The animated series BEANY & CECIL (first called Matty’s Funday Funnies) continued their adventures and interaction with the Dishonest John
(Stan Freberg), the program's chief villain who had a sneering "Nya ha ha!"
laugh. As always, when Beany was in trouble Cecil rushed to his rescue and
shouted his signature catchphrase "I'm coming Beany-boy!" A short-lived revival
of the series aired in 1988. See also - "Time
