Let’s polish off this issue of Terry-Toons Comics No. 65, February 1948 with a story featuring those irascible magpies, Heckle and Jeckle; as well as a story featuring a Dinky – a one-time star but all but forgotten today.I always thought Heckle and Jeckle a bit dark – even threatening somehow. When young, I read somewhere their names were meant as a play on the R.L. Stevenson story, The strange case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. As a boy, this bit of trivia no doubt shaded my view of the grinning pair. Together, they seemed capable of anything.
The name Dinky Duck is fairly lost to the ages, but this story is made worthy being the work of Connie Rasinski (signed), a principal director and animator with Terrytoons.DOWNLOAD: STAR FOR A DAY
