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.

My favorite Hanna-Barbera cartoon
8 August 2016 | by cshorton95See all my reviews

I absolutely love the Quick Draw McGraw show. Being a huge fan of classic television animation, I came across this program online, and I have to say that it's my very favorite Hanna-Barbera cartoon show; Huckleberry Hound, Yogi Bear, and The Flintstones are favorites of mine as well.

The animation is great, and the colors are earth tones – which fits the western theme perfectly. The background music, which is western themed, is also appealing. The comedic timing is perfect, and Michael Maltese did an excellent job participating in making the characters come to life. What really makes the show stand out are the characters; they are all engaging, lovable and well made. Quick Draw McGraw is my personal favorite Hanna-Barbera character; though he's rather dumb, he is extremely hilarious and so full of life and perseverance that you can't help but love him. His catchphrases and antics are really clever and amusing, and he puts all his effort into getting rid of the bad guys (some of the villains are extremely funny and unforgettable, like Big Chief Little Runt from 'Scat, Scout, Scat'). Quick Draw never gives up – even if he fails most of the time – you have to love him for those qualities. Baba Looey, his Mexican burro sidekick, is extremely loyal to McGraw and is always there for him. He's smart and always warns Quick Draw of danger; he is a wonderful sidekick and has some great lines too. The voice acting by the talented legend Daws Butler is outstanding. Other great characters include Snuffles, the cute biscuit-loving dog, Augie Doggie and Doggie Daddy, and Snooper and Blabber, which are great characters as well.

I highly recommend this show for cartoon lovers young and old. It's hugely enjoyable, laugh out loud funny, and down to earth. It's a real shame the Quick Draw McGraw show doesn't have its own complete DVD series, we really need one so that new animation fans as well as baby boomers who grew up with this treasure can look back and enjoy it.
