Storyline

Quick Draw Mcgraw was a dimwitted and lanky mustang (horse) who caused much chaos in the Old West. If he could get his own six shooter out of his holster at all, he would usually shoot the wrong man. His partner, a Mexican burro name Baba Looie, was always trying to help Quick Draw as much as he could. Also on the show were cartoons featuring Snooper and Blabber, Augie Doggie and Doggie Daddy.

Second Hanna-Barbera Animated Series In Syndication
14 December 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

FOLLOWING THEIR SUCCESS with their first syndicated cartoon show in THE HUCKLEBERRY HOUND Show, Hanna-Barbera Productions followed it up about a year or so later. With the release of QUICK DRAW McGRAW, the same format was followed verbatim.

WHERERAS HUCK'S SHOW featured two Huckleberry Hound cartoons in book end positions (first & last). In between there were 6 minutes of YOGI BEAR (with BOO-BOO and Ranger Smith) and a PIXIE & DIXIE Cartoon (Mice) featuring the Beatnik-like Cat/Nemisis, MR. JINX.

THE QUICK DRAW McGraw show did likewise, but this time the back-up features were AUGIE DOGGIE & his DOGGIE DADDY (with the Jimmy Duarante voice) and detective spoof of SUPER SNOOPER & BLABBER MOUSE. "Snoop" has his voice patterned after actor Tom D'Andrea and "Blab" is sort of high-pitched with a pronounced slur.

IN AN ATTEMPT to capitalize on the then very popular Disney ZORRO TV Series, a sort of subplot developed in the QUICK DRAW Cartoons when Quick Draw, himself, took on a masked double identity as "EL KABONG"! Decked out in a very Zorro-like get up, replete with tango-style hat and stringed bolas. Instead of a sword, El Kabong strikes his opponent over his cranium with his GUITAR! The resulting ka-bong sound gives us the name.

WE MUST MAKE mention of "Qweeks Draw's" sidekick. Short and comical, BABA-LOUIE is a burro with a Mexican Accent & Sombereo to boot. His relationship with the star, Quick Draw, is similar to that of BOO-BOO's to YOGI BEAR. Baba-Louie probably couldn't exist today if the series were to have been created today. He belongs to the same school of characters as Warner Brothers' SPEEDY GONZALEZ and UPA's GO GO GOMEZ (from the DICK TRACY animated show). In short, they violate the tenets of Political Correctness.

IN THE FINAL analysis, we must say that while there are many similarities to the previous HUCK Show, this is not a case of cookie cutter copying! And Schultz says he heartily agrees, too!
