Quick Draw MCGraw

Show Summary

Quick Draw was usually depicted in his shorts (which were set in the American Old West) as a sheriff. Quick Draw was often accompanied by his deputy, a Mexican burro with a stereotypical Spanish accent named Baba Looey, who was also voiced by Butler. Quick Draw was depicted as a satire of the westerns that were popular among the American public at the time. His personality was well intentioned, but somewhat dim; oftentimes, Baba Looey would make a more accurate assessment of the problem at hand than Quick Draw would. Whenever that happened, Quick Draw would often utter his catchphrase: "Now hoooooold on thar, Baba Looey! I'll do the thinnin' [thinking] around here, and doooon't you forget it!" Quick Draw also spoke with a heavy drawl, as shown by his catchphrase. Although Quick Draw was himself a horse, this did not stop the show's producers from depicting him riding into town on a "real" horse, or, as seen in the show's opening credits, driving a stagecoach pulled by "real" horses into a town. This aspect was made light of in the 1980s made-for-television film The Good, the Bad, and Huckleberry Hound, which featured Quick Draw. In a series of episodes, Quick Draw would also assume the identity of the masked vigilante, "El Kabong" (a parody of Zorro). As El Kabong, Quick Draw would attack his foes by swooping down on a rope and hitting them on the head with an acoustic guitar, producing a distinctive kabong sound and destroying the guitar in the process. Quick Draw McGraw's supporting characters in The Quick Draw McGraw Show's two other segments were Augie Doggie and Doggie Daddy, a father-and-son pair of dogs, and Snooper and Blabber, a pair of detectives who were a cat and a mouse.moreless

  • Another great Hanna-Barbera cartoon.

    This was another great Hanna-Barbera cartoon. This one featured two main characters. Quick Draw McGraw is a horse that plays a bad guy fighting sheriff. He is joined by a burro named Baba Looey. Sometimes Quick Draw would play his alter ego "El Kabong" who was a Zorro wanna be. He would swing on a rope and hit people with a guitar and when he hit them it would make, of course, a Kabong sound. It would be really funny seeing Quick Draw as a horse riding a horse. Since they were the good guys they would usually come out on the winning end.moreless

    wow this show was good I never lived in its time when these episodes were still new I get to watch some in Boomerang.I just watch like 2 hours of this in my whole life and I already got up to 7.1 if I were to watch it more then I know my rating will go up reaaaaaaally slow(slower than a turtle).This show is not bad also it doesnt show much in boomerang though but I get exited when it shows up mostly when quickdraw is El kabong that is so cool and also his little sidekick I know his name but I dont know how to spell it. I also like YogiBear but personally I think I like Quickdraw McGraw better I also think I like it better than Huckelberryhound. Ok thats all gooooooood bye!.moreless
