Sea Serpents & Sea Monsters

Cecil the Sea-sick Sea Serpent - One of television's earliest sea serpents was featured on BEANY AND CECIL/SYN/1950-55, a 15-minute puppet show produced by Bob Clampett and later featured on the animated cartoon BEANY & CECIL/ABC/1962-64

'I'm Comin' Beany Boy!' - BEANY & CECIL

The programs followed the exploits of a small boy named Beany (voice of Daws Butler) who sailed the seven seas with his pet, Cecil (voice of Stan Freberg), a green "seasick" sea serpent and Captain Horatio Huffenpuff, the blowhard commander of their ship, the Leakin' Lena

The animated series BEANY & CECIL (first called Matty’s Funnies with Beany & Cecil) 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.

TRIVIA NOTE: The Cecil character was inspired by the pre-historic dinosaurs that animator Bob Clampett had remembered from the 1920's silent film feature Lost World. See also "Time for Beany"
