The Olden Age of Television

I would have loved to be in the room when the creators of a new cartoon, were pitching the network execs.

Us:Can't miss, two rambunctious birds get themselves into, and then out of trouble
Network:What's so special about that?
Us:  They are no ordinary birds, their are rare magpies. 
NW: Go on--
Us:  Get this, they are talking magpies.
Nw:With chin in hands and ruffled brow, begins to shake his head.
US: Very hurried--One speaks with a British accent
NW:Sold!!! 13 episodes. with an option for 26 more
Us:  We call it Heckle and Schmeckle
NW: Guys?
US  :Jekyll
