Dukes Up Daddy

Here’s a gag you can see several miles away. I’m afraid the little cartoons preceding the Augie Doggie cartoons on the Quick Draw McGraw Show weren’t terribly strong when it came to humour. Doggie Daddy tells Quick Draw he’s teaching Augie “the manly art of self defence.”

Daddy tells Augie to let him have it. Ken Muse holds Augie in position while we get some effect animation.

“Dat’s my boy, dere. Knockin’ a chip off the old block.” Fade out.

It’s hard to tell from this beet-red Eastmancolor print but the backgrounds are by Dick Thomas.

  1. Augie Doggie and Doggie Daddy were uniquely designed to take advantage of the fact that Hanna-Barbera animation was done in profile almost 100% of the time. Neither Augie or Daddy works very well full-on and in 3/4 view they're passable--but they're dynamite in profile.
