The Wildman of Wildsville is encountered upon after Beany, Cecil and Uncle Captain (the Leakin’ Lena’s captain), land on No Bikini Atoll to find the elusive Wildman of Wildsville. Once he is found, what our trio soon recognizes is the Wildman is a beatnik who practices his art in the realm of the surreal. Decidedly, for a character who appeared in only one episode of Beany and Cecil, the Wildman is one of the most fondly remembered of the series (not to mention being our own personal spokesperson for our website art business).
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 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.
