I was super psyched to find Beany & Cecil on YouTube recently. They were some of my favorite cartoons as a child and as it was a very sad day when they left the airwaves some forty years ago.
This particular episode is borderline genius, parodying beat generation culture of the 1950’s.
Among the many clever puns are The Hungry I-Land (the hungry i was a beat coffehouse in San Francisco), Mort Soil (Mort Sahl was a political satirist who is still alive & kickin), Lenny’s Spruce Tree (comedian Lenny Bruce), The Kingston Tree-O (Kingston Trio-popular folk group who made a live record at the Hungry i) ~like cool daddy-o!
