The season 13 episodes, each one with two 5 minute Heathcliff cartoons and two 5 minute Dingbat and the Creeps cartoons. Dingbat and the Creeps revolved around the adventures of three monstrous characters who were self-employed as "Odd Jobs, Inc." which consisted of Dingbat, a vampire dog who used a bat-shaped novelty straw to eat most foods, Sparerib, a strangely rotund skeleton with the ability to change himself into useful items (such as a floor lamp), and Nobody, a gravelly voiced jack-o-lantern who led the team and often found them various work.
