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.
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.
