Finally, the classic 1950s cartoon Heckle & Jeckle is available on DVD. The show never recieved a full retail release due to ridiculous fears that it would be too politically incorrect for today's audiences, but finally classicdvdshop.com has managed to release a DVD Box Set containing all 42 episodes which remain on film.
One magpie spoke with an English accent, while the other spoke with a New York dialect. Heckle often refers to Jeckle simply as 'chum' or 'pal', while Jeckle often refers to Heckle as 'old chap' 'old boy' and 'old featherhead', indicating a close friendship between them. Although there seemed to be a great deal of uncertainty as to which was which, in the short Bulldozing The Bulls, they clearly refer to each other by name, with the Brooklyn accent belonging to Heckle and the English accent belonging to Jeckle.
In the later short Stunt Men, Jeckle, in an English accent, calls Heckle by name again. Furthermore, in the cartoon Rival Romeos, the magpies, after being simultaneously smitten by the same female, run home to get dressed. They are shown to occupy two sides of the same tree, and each character's home is marked with a signï¿½Heckle is clearly designated as the Brooklyn magpie with his jaunty hat, and Jeckle dons an English-looking bowtie and monocle.
