The Hector Heathcote Show
The Hector Heathcote Show is a spoof of the history of America, Africa, and Japan, airing Saturday mornings on NBC. Many of the cartoons from 1959 to 1963 were made for theatrical release. Others were made specifically for the TV show.
Hector is an impressionable, teenage, and young Revolutionary War element that bumbles his way into helping key figures of the era make history. His main adversary was a turncoat named Benedict and one of his friends was a talking red-and-yellow dog named Winston.
Filling out the show was Silly Sidney (a neurotic light blue jungle elephant) and Hashimoto San (a Japanese mouse and his family).
Each show had one Hector cartoon, followed by a Sidney cartoon, and a Hashimoto cartoon is third.
The opening and closing of the show had fireworks. The series was telecast in color or black-and-white. On June 16, 1964, Camden Records released a music album of the same name, with 6 stories.
