I think the Mickey Mouse Club with By Williams replaced Capt. Jim circa fall 1962. The original Mickey Mouse Club aired in the late 1950s on ABC (I think WSTV carried it, but no longer remember though I did watch it in its original run as a little kid). Disney then syndicated it to local stations, which is when WIIC bought it and padded it with By Williams.

The Harvey cartoons were old theatrical films that came to TV around 1960 or so, initially as an early Sunday evening program on ABC. The characters were known to kids via comic books, so they needed no introduction and the program had an audience already prepared for it. That said, they WERE pretty awful.
