Pixie and Dixie and Mr. Jinks was a Hanna-Barbera cartoon that was formed in 1958, featuring two mice named Pixie and Dixie and a cat named Mr. Jinks. It was a similar to Hanna-Barbera's other work, Tom and Jerry. The cartoon uses less violence that Tom and Jerry, but more "childlike humor." For example, Pixie and Dixie often make satirical jokes to make the viewers laugh, such as when Pixie's cousin comes to visit Pixie and Dixie and Pixie imitates him by saying "Howdie, cousins." Hanna-Barbera also use reflexivity in this cartoon and mix it up with humor, such as when Mr. Jinks says "only in cartoons do mice beat up a cat."
Hanna-Barbera uses limited animation in this television cartoon in that the actors used to voice the three characters were the same voices used in Huckleberry Hound Show. Also, there is a running gag with both mice running away and Mr. Jinks following them.
