Hanna Barbera Cartoon Classics: Augie Doggie And Doggie Daddy

by bev-owens

Hanna Barbera cartoons have become classics with so many people. A look back at Augie Doggie and Doggie Daddy.

Vintage Cartoon Classic By Hanna And Barbera

One of my favorite Hanna Barbera Cartoon classics was Augie Doggie and Doggie Daddy. The cartoon segments were regularly aired on the Quick Draw Magraw Show from 1959 through 1961. Produced and directed by Joseph Barbera and William Hanna this fun pair of father and son dogs were just a laugh and a half to watch. Doggie Daddy seemed a little overtitle card of augie doggie and doggie daddywhelmed at times with his energetic and impetuous son, Augie.

Doggie Daddy, who sounded just a little like Jimmy Durante, tried to be stern and do what he thought was best for him and his son. Usually the rambunctious little pup, Augie, wanted no part of whatever his "dear old dad" had cooked up. As you might guess, Augie Doggie usually ended up in some sort of trouble or mischief and Doggie Daddy had to come to the rescue.

Typically the moral of each cartoon episode involved the general idea that "Dad Knows Best" even if he is a dog that resemebles a dachshund! Sometimes the lesson was that a son can make his father proud even if getting to that point might have been difficult.

These cartoons were really good clean entertaining stories showing situations between a father and son with hidden little messages about growing up and how a father can help a child make the better choices while doing it.

Oh the nostalgia. Milk, cookies, and Augie Doggie in from the the b/w TV. Kids today don't know what they've missed out on. I did used to wonder where his mother was though.

I do remember Augie Doggie and Doggie Daddy! Hadn't thought of them in many, many years, but it was fun to watch the video and remember!

Not that one, but I did recognize some other familiar titles.

Ah... you're talking about my youth. And I don't mean as a kid. I was lucky enough to work at Hanna-Barbera so I'm one of those adults you knows way too much about kid-vid!
