Dr Jeckle and Mr Heckle are a duo of male anthropomorphic magpies.
These two cynical and mischievous characters with kleptomaniac tendencies are the leaders of a nefarious secret organization, the Mob of the Maroon Magpies, which is known for antagonizing the Horde of the Violet Hare. At one point, they had a run-in with Joe Torcivia, who described them as "sly" and urged the readers of his blog to be wary of them. A few months later, Dr Jeckle, and, later, Mr Heckle, visited Scrooge McDuck's Money Bin, with Jeckle getting away with a cup of nutmeg tea filched from Scrooge.
Behind the scenesEdit
Dr Jeckle and Mr Heckle, created in the comments section of a post on Joe Torcivia's The Issue At Hand by Torcivia himself, are the Disneyfied parodies of Heckle and Jeckle, cartoon characters emblematic of the Terrytoons Studios. As presented, the names are also a typical Torcivian pun, in this case mixing the names of Heckle and Jeckle with those of the famous Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, from R.L. Stevenson's short story.
