Storyline

Huckleberry Hound is a blue-haired Southern dog with a fondness for the song, "My Darling, Clementine", and is a jack-of-all-trades cartoon star, appearing as a scientist (trying to neutralize a gigantic, thinking potato), a Scotland Yard detective (chasing Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde in Victorian London or investigating reports of a mad scientist's Frankenstein-like weiner monster in early-1900s rural England), a Foreign Legion soldier (foiling a renegade Frenchman-turned-Arab), or a modern policeman (trying to subdue an impish ape named Wee Willie). Episodes of this television series begin and end with a Huckleberry cartoon. Sandwiched between them is a cartoon with two mischievous mice, Pixie and Dixie and a cantankerous cat named Mr. Jinks. Sometimes appearing in their stead in the middle cartoon was a free-spirited Hokey Wolf or the "smarter than the average" Yogi Bear. Written by Kevin McCorry <mmccorry@nb.sympatico.ca>

A dog with a fondness for the song "My Darling, Clementine"- nice idea to work with
12 May 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

While there are areas where the animation has its limitations and one or two of the story lines somewhat repetitive, The Huckleberry Hound Show is still very entertaining. The music is great, the writing is funny and the gags are well done. And when the animation is not limited, it looks really nice, and I will say the animation on Hucklberry Hound himself is superb. Huckleberry, brilliantly voiced by Daws Butler, is a very lovable blue-haired Southern dog with a fondness for the song "My Darling, Clementine", I like that a lot, and it was a nice idea to work with it. The guest characters Pixie and Dixie are also really endearing and voiced excellently. It was a real joy to hear Don Messick again, he never failed to bring a smile to my face. Overall, entertaining show and worth watching. 8/10 Bethany Cox
