Cecil the Seasick Sea Serpent Original and Limited Edition Art
A large green sea serpent with a slight lisp. He is fiercely loyal to Beany but not terribly bright. He was invented and made famous by animator Bob Clampett. Crazy antics and violent action was used, but was kept believably within the laws of cartoon physics. The end of Cecil's tail was never seen in most episodes; it always extended off-screen, or was hidden behind an obstacle. This is likely a joking reference to the original Cecil, a hand puppet whose tail was likewise hidden (because it didn't exist).
