Miss Magpie

A friend on Facebook posted this screengrab from an old Heckle & Jeckle cartoon. I'm trying to figure out which adventure of the magpies it comes from:

When I do, I'll let you all know. In the meantime, don't forget about the poll at the right (details here).

Update: The cartoon is called "Blind Date". And it has more of a connection for readers of this blog than you might first imagine. Here's a little from a (somewhat negative) review on IMDB:

"Heckle puts a blonde wig on Jeckle's feathered head. Jeckle angrily throws the wig onto the floor, but then Heckle quickly binds Jeckle into a corset which constricts him into a (vaguely) female shape and prevents him from struggling. Next, Heckle puts the wig back on Jeckle, then adds a dress, high heels and lipstick. It's not a very convincing disguise, but Heckle brings Jeckle to Horace's mansion and then turns 'her' in for the reward."

And I've also found the full cartoon on line--here it is (the relevant part starts at about :50):
