Animation fans and historians tend to think of Terry Toons, the animation division of 20th Century Fox founded by former Van Beuren employee Paul Terry, as the poor cousins among theatrical animation of the mid-20th century, but there are those that have great affection for them – especially (no surprise) Mighty Mouse and Heckle & Jeckle.>

Paul Terry was considered the Dean of Animation in the 1920’s and 30’s period of animation. Even Walt Disney looked up to him and hoped to make cartoons as good and funny as his.

TV Tropes notes that today, thanks to an online resurgance of the cartoons, not only on youtube but many classic animation blogs and websites, the cartoons are slowly gaining a loyal fan following, particularly among modern animators.
