A boy named Beany sails the seas aboard the Leakin' Lena accompanied by seasick sea serpent Cecil, and the boy's uncle, Capt. Horatio K. Huffenpuff. The characters were originally puppets created by animator Bob Clampett and featured on a local Los Angeles show ('Time for Beany') in the late 1940s. It appeared first on ABC as 'Matty's Funnies with Beany and Cecil.' In 1988, the series briefly resurfaced on ABC.
