Theme Song: Quick Draw McGraw (main)

Quick Draw McGraw (segment)



uick Draw McGraw was the featured segment on the half-hour Quick Draw McGraw Show. The other 7-minute segments were Snooper & Blabber (a cat and mouse detective team) and Augie Doggie & Doggie Daddy (a bumbling canine father and his son). Parents could set their watches to the length of time in each segment and know their children would be happily entertained while watching the lawman and his friends in multiple adventures.


Quick Draw McGraw was a famous lawman (actually a bipedal, talking horse - although nobody took any notice) in the American Old West, who others sent for when they faced trouble too difficult to overcome themselves. Quick Draw had the help of his faithful companion Baba Looey, a Mexican burro who was slightly smarter than Quick Draw (Quick Draw had more courage than common sense) and normally shouldered the burden of catching the bad guys when Quick Draw failed.


The two were occasionally accompanied by a dog named Snuffles. Snuffles wasn't naturally inclined to help, but he could be bribed to do anything for a dog biscuit, which he loved. Whenever Snuffles received a biscuit he was overcome with such delight that he sighed and hugged himself in ecstasy, then jumped into the air and reclined floating to the ground in satisfaction. Sometimes when Snuffles demanded a biscuit Quick Draw would refuse to give him one until after he performed a task, which would set Snuffles to muttering under his breath, calling Quick Draw a cheapskate. (For all those who requested it, here is the sound of Snuffles getting a dog biscuit.)


In some episodes Quick Draw took on the guise of El Kabong, a masked vigilante in the spirit of Zorro, but who used a guitar in place of a sword. His name derived from the sound the instrument made when hitting his foe: *kabong!* Before striking his victim, stock footage was shown of El Kabong swinging through the air on a rope while whirling his guitar and yelling "Olé!" even though most of the time there was nothing to swing from, as a good deal of the action took place in the desert.


Once his own series ended, Quick Draw McGraw was later used as a regular cast member on Yogi's Gang (1973), Scooby's All Star Laff-A-Lympics (1977) and Yogi's Treasure Hunt (1985).
