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>

Another good Hanna-Barbera cartoon!
14 June 2004 | by (Kansas City, MO) – See all my reviews

The Huckleberry Hound Show was one of the first ever Hanna-Barbera cartoons that was the other first cartoons done by Hanna-Barbera cartoons!

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. He would appear as a scientist, police man, cowboy, jungle boy or something else. Huckleberry Hound's guest stars on his show were Pixie and Dixie, this was one of the segments I liked on this show because I thought it was funny when Mr. Jinks would say "I hate mieces to pieces!" which I think is a famous catch phrase. Yogi Bear was one of the guest stars on this show for a little while until he got his own show and that was when Hokey Wolf took it's place. Hokey Wolf was a free-spirited wolf who would go on a few adventures with his sidekick, Ding-A-Ling.
