The first season ("Heathcliff and Dingbat") ran for 13 episodes and included backup segments with Dingbat and the Creeps, who was created for the show. Dingbat and the Creeps was a Halloween-themed cartoon where Dingbat, a vampire dog, Spare Rib, a skeleton, and Nobody, a jack-o-lantern were deported from Transylvania for not being evil, and made their way trying to help others. The second season ("Heathcliff and Marmaduke") ran for 12 episodes and featured backup segments with fellow comic strip character Marmaduke (although the Marmaduke segments are actually the first to be seen in each half-hour show).
Reruns can be seen occasionally on Boomerang, however in recent months only the second season ("Heathcliff and Marmaduke") has been shown.
Two years after this show ended, another one based on Heathcliff started which was called simply "Heathcliff", although for distinction this series is usually referred to by the expanded title of "Heathcliff and the Catillac Cats".
There's a race to be on top
The competition doesn't stop
Mixing with the ladies fair
Being charming, debonair
The gang will reign supreme
And no one can deny
They'll make some history
And always have an alibi
So join in the jubilee
The cats are great, they'll all agree
You'll find in each calamity
The cat's superiority
Heathcliff, Heathcliff, no one should
Terrify the neighborhood
But Heathcliff just won't be outdone
You should realize, he can win it WITH YOU!
