These are animated cartoon characters that debuted on TV in 1959. This was the year when Rocky and Bullwinkle debuted, and Hanna-Barbera continued their reign with Quick Draw McGraw (Augie Doggie also debuted in Quick Draw McGraw's show). Clutch Cargo was a series that had very limited animation. Most of the Bucky and Pepito cartoons have been lost over the decades and what remains is now in the public domain. Lastly, the Beany and Cecil cartoons debuted on Matty's Funday Funnies and was based on the Time for Beany puppet show characters which premiered on TV a decade earlier. (More can be seen in the "History of TV Animation" folder in my gallery.)
