Pixie & Dixie

Pixie & Dixie and Mr. Jinks are Hanna-Barbera cartoon characters who were featured on a regular segment of the television series The Huckleberry Hound Show from 1958 to 1962. It starred two mice, Pixie and Dixie, and a cat, Mr. Jinks (a.k.a. Jinksy). Pixie was voiced by Don Messick, and Dixie and Mr. Jinks were voiced by Daws Butler.
It has been suggested that Jinks' laconic drawl was in some ways inspired by actor Marlon Brando, though the similarity is a distant one, at best.
In many ways the shorts resemble Hanna and Barbera's earlier better-known creation, Tom & Jerry, which also featured a warring cat and mouse (sometimes two) in a domestic setting. However without Tom and Jerry's more lavish budget for full animation, the Jinks team had to rely on funny dialogue and voices to carry the cartoon's humor.
Pixie & Dixie and Mr. Jinks is probably best remembered for Mr. Jinks' refrain, "I hate meeses [sic] to pieces", "meeses" being pronounced to rhyme with "pieces".
