Pixie and Dixie and Mr. Jinks is also remembered for Mr. Jinks' rhyming but ungrammatical lament, "I hate those meeces to pieces!".
For the first nine episodes, the show featured a theme song with lyrics but from then on switched to theme tunes.
As with Huckleberry Hound, Mr. Jinks would frequently talk directly to the audience, and discuss his plans to trap the "meeces".
It stars two cute and cuddly twin mice children, the bowtied Pixie (voiced by Don Messick) and the vested Dixie (voiced by Daws Butler with a Southern American accent) and Mr. Jinks the Cat (voiced by Daws Butler impersonating Marlon Brando). Mr Jinks is an orange tuxedo cat who is always outfoxed by the mice, causing him to utter his trademark line "I hates those meeces to pieces!" The show's plot itself and its characters were extremely similar to Hanna and Barbera's earlier, yet better-known creation, Tom and Jerry. The difference between these two cartoons were that the episodes of this segment always featured two mice instead of one like in Tom and Jerry, and the main characters always spoke, whereas Tom and Jerry were generally mute.
