In 1962, legendary animation director, Bob Clampett created “Beany and Cecil,” an animated series modeled after the successful puppet show, “Time For Beany.” The series, like the puppet show, featured Beany, Cecil the Seasick Sea Serpent, and a plethora of other characters, who today remain as quirky as they are original, as their adventures embark them on surreal parodies of contemporary events and places.
From the mid 1970’s up until his death, Clampett toured Universities around the United States showing his cartoons including “Beanyland” which was Clampett’s satire on Disneyland. In fact Clampett completed two versions of that cartoon. “Beanyland” the episode that aired can be seen on https://beanyandcecil.com/dvdvol1.php. “Park at the Top of the Stars” the alternate version which never aired can be seen on https://beanyandcecil.com/dvdvol2.php. Clampett also frequently showed “The Wildman of Wildsville” a cartoon starring the beatnik painter “Go Man Van Gogh.” His tag line was “Man, I don’t dig anything that’s square.”
In “Beanyland,” Beany and Cecil rocket to the moon, where they magically create “Beanyland,” a moon-based parody of Disneyland. Of course, as the moon is made of cheese, the plot point of villain/antagonist Dishonest John, is to destroy Beanyland, while also selling the moon cheese to Earth until there is, effectively, no moon left.
