Augie Doggie and Doggie Daddy (title card)

Augie Doggie and Doggie Daddy are Hanna-Barbera cartoon characters who debuted on The Quick Draw McGraw Show and appeared in their own segment of that show.

SummaryEdit

The segments centered around the misadventures of a dachshund father-and-son team. Doggie Daddy (voiced by Doug Young impersonating Jimmy Durante) tried to do the best he could at raising his rambunctious son Augie (voiced by Daws Butler). Augie, who loved his father, would often refer to him as "dear old Dad." Their mutual admiration included Daddy gently chiding, "Augie, my son, my son", when he would disappoint his father; and when his son would say or do something that inspired pride, Daddy would turn to the audience and say with a grin, "Dat's my boy who said dat!"

The segments and characters were similar to the Spike and Tyke cartoons William Hanna and Joseph Barbera produced during their theatrical animation careers at MGM in the 1940s and 1950s.

Theme SongEdit

A 45rpm record released at the height of the show's popularity featured the show's theme song. The lyrics included this chorus: "Augie Dog was feeling sad 'till he learned from Doggie Dad-- Ears can flop and tails can wag--flippity, floppity, wiggeldy, waggeldy-- All of your troubles away."


Character InformationEdit

Doggie DaddyEdit

A strict smooth-talking parent. Doggie Daddy does everything to judge what's best for them which can be too much to Augie's displeasure sometimes. Despite his strictness, he has a warm personality and would ultimately agree to his son's wishes.

Augie DoggieEdit

A highly spirited pup who's motivated by his desire to fulfill his ambitions as well as making his father proud. Possessing some knowledge in science and the ability to converse with animals, Augie would often capitalize if his father's attempts in tasks are in vain.
