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.

The Foghorn Leghorse of the West!
21 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I always liked horses and cowboys as a kid, so I thought this show ruled simply because it had a talking cartoon horse in it. Years later, I began to appreciate it even more for the background music and the clever humor in the show. I don't know just who or what person or character Hanna and Barbara patterned Quick Draw after, but I know Baba Looey was envisioned to be some kind of cross between the Cisco Kid's sidekick and Desi Arnaz (that's where Baba gets the 'thin' theeng from!). Like a lot of people I've met here in the Southern United States (and hey, I can say that, I'm FROM here!)Queeks Draw is often long on mouth and short on brains but Baba and the rest of us tend to look over that and enjoy him anyway. The Hoyt Curtin background music in the Quick Draw cartoons is good (a lot of it came from Columbia Pictures music library music off old Columbia cartoons) and the animation is often so quirky and crude that it's cute. "Bad Guys Disguise" is my favorite QD toon of all time, it's the quintessential Quick Draw toon. Daws Butler, Don Messick, and Jean Vanderpyl do great voice work on these early toons, too. The humor's good, fresh, and fun, and Butler really hams it up in a silly was as Quick Draw's voice... I didn't really care for Augie Dogie, even as a kid, because I never was much of a Jimmy Durante fan and it's pretty obvious who they were trying to pattern Doggie Daddy after...but Snooper and Blabber cartoons were fun to watch. I haven't seen one in years and I miss them. I like the 1959 to 1960 toons best of all, before Quick Draw got the Flintstoney music and visuals, but you can't go wrong with a QD toon...and "do-oh-ohn't yew fergiht ITTT!"
