Pixie and Dixie and Mr. Jinks is a series of animated segments as part of The Huckleberry Hound Show, produced by Hanna-Barbera Productions. Airing in syndication, it ran from 1958 to 1962, airing 57 episodes that spanned four seasons.

The series is William Hanna and Joseph Barbera's first spin (and derivative) of their previous creation, Tom and Jerry; made suitably for an early television format. It follows the exploits of Pixie and Dixie, two rambunctious mice who outwit their main rival Mr. Jinks, a hip cat determined on clobbering the "meeces".




The music was composed by Hoyt Curtin.

Pixie, Dixie and Mr. Jinks appear in the Jellystone! reboot, with Jinks voiced by Jeff Bergman and Pixie voiced by Jenny Lorenzo. Jinks is Mayor Huckleberry's assistant, and Pixie and Dixie run a candy store called Pixie and Dixie's. Dixie is also reimagined as a girl in this series.

In popular culture

  • In the Garfield and Friends segment "The Cartoon Cat Conspiracy," Garfield watches a cartoon of a cat chasing a mouse to demonstrate how cartoon cats are wrongfully portayed as foolish villains. The cartoon in the beginning is similar to cartoons such as Tom and Jerry and Pixie and Dixie and Mr. Jinks; the latter of which especially also takes inspiration from. The blue cat at the start is a parody to Mr. Jinks, including his appearance, voice, and similar role.
  • In the Beast Wars: Transformers episode "Beast Wars (Part 1)," Rattrap says Cheetor's new beast mode looks tacky, which instigates an angry response that he'll cut meeces to pieces, something that Mr. Jinks said to Pixie and Dixie frequently.
