Heathcliff, Banjo, And Terrytoons Software
Datasoft recently obtained the
rights to market home computer software based on Heathcliff, the
syndicated cartoon cat; Banjo, the Woodpile Cat; and approximately 200
Terrytoons cartoon characters, including such favorites as Heckle and
Jeckle, Pearl Pureheart, and Deputy Dog.
Heathcliff, now nine years old, was created by
George Gately. Along with a cast of supporting characters, Heathcliff
is now also a Saturday morning TV star. Datasoft expects to introduce
its Heathcliff product in the second quarter of this year.
Banjo the Woodpile
Cat, the first film done by Don Bluth Productions, was aired
last year on ABC-TV. The film presents the whimsical story of Banjo, a
country cat who wanders off to the big city. Although Banjo discovers
excitement and adventure, and learns the value of friendship, he is
only too glad to return home. Datasoft plans to introduce Banjo
software during the spring, possibly in April.
The Terrytoons software should be introduced around
