The Hector Heathcote Show was an animated spoof of history, airing Saturday mornings on NBC. Many of the cartoons from 1959 to 1963 were made for theatrical release. Others were made specifically for the TV show.

Hector was a young and impressionable Revolutionary War element that bumbles his way into helping key figures of the era make history. His main adversary was a turncoat named Benedict and his friend was a laconic talking dog named Winston.

Filling out the show was Silly Sidney (a neurotic jungle elephant) and Hashimoto San (a Japanese mouse and his family).
