No tinkling of glasses or noise during the Huckleberry Hound Show.
—Sign in a San Francisco bar in the late 1950s
Huckleberry Hound debuted in 1958 as Hanna-Barbera's first successful television star. Voiced by Daws Butler, the easygoing Huck was shown in a variety of settings, from Arthurian England to modern times.
Unlike Hanna-Barbera's other stars, Huck didn't have a regular supporting cast in his shorts, although he did have a handful of recurring antagonists, including Powerful Pierre. But his show did have two supporting segments: Yogi Bear and Pixie & Dixie and Mr. Jinks. When Yogi got his own series, his slot on The Huckleberry Hound Show was taken by Hokey Wolf.
This series provides examples of:
- Breakout Character: Yogi Bear.
- Cats Are Mean: Mr. Jinks hates those meeces to pieces.
- Expy: Jinks, Pixie and Dixie are basically Tom and Jerry with an extra Jerry.
- Gag Dub: In Hungary, three Pixie and Dixie shorts got hilarious parody dubs as Narancs, Tetves és Dugó.
- Hollywood Tone Deaf: "Oh my darling Clemen-TAAAAYYYNE!"
- Signature Song: "Oh My Darling Clementine"
- Talking to Himself: Daws Butler and Don Messick did all of the character voices.
- Three Shorts
- Why Do You Keep Changing Jobs?
