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>

Huck's Voice
23 February 2008 | by wsutton_49See all my reviews

I have to echo the previous comments alluding to Huck's voice, by Daws Butler, being based on Andy Griffith's drawl from his early comedy routines and southern characters, pre-Mayberry. Just listen to his routine called 'What it was Was Football', or his comedic take on explaining 'Romeo and Juliet', or watch his 'No Time for Sergeants'. I came across these old gems on the internet a couple of weeks ago after watching the PBS series about Pioneers of Television. One episode of the series, dealing with late night shows and their hosts, had a little bit of him on the old Steve Allen show telling these stories and I mentioned to my wife then that I thought the voice of Huck had to be based on Andy. I watched Huck's show starting with its debut in 1958 when I was 9 but I don't remember ever noticing the similarity before.
