Bob Clampett originally did this with puppets on a TV show that began in 1948 (with Stan Freberg as Cecil and Daws Butler as Beany) called "Time for Beany." It was a daily show on KTLA in Los Angeles.

The cartoon voices (in the ABC series were Irv Shoemaker as Cecil and Jim MacGeorge as Beany).

I loved that show; I was 6 at the time it aired in our area, and it was this show that gave me an appreciation for puns. There was a trip that they made through a desert and one of them had a "2 car mirage".  There were also the other characters in between episodes of that day like Hareculeas, a rabbit with a scientific bent who had a rocket ship called a "Guided Muscle"  I had a board game that came out about the same time as the Chatty Cathy dolls, which featured a hand puppet with a "Chatty" pull string that you pulled to get clues through out the game when you landed on the right spaces.  Wish I still had it, it would probably be worth thousands now.

"Help, Cecil, Help!" "I'm comin', Beanie boy!!!!" One of my favorites growing up in the 60's.

Wife and I didn't know each other existed back then, but both love B&C.
