The Quick Draw McGraw Show is an animated American television series produced by Hanna-Barbera Productions for NBC's Saturday morning children's programming. It ran from 1959 to 1961, airing 45 episodes.

The show debuted with segments, Quick Draw McGraw, Augie Doggie and Doggie Daddy and Snooper and Blabber.

The show was made after the success of The Huckleberry Hound Show a year prior.




Quick Draw, Baba Looey, Augie Doggie, and Doggie Daddy would go on to make several appearances on the 2000 spinoff series Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law. Snooper and Blabber would appear in Super Secret Secret Squirrel instead of the former series.

There have been several attempts to revive Quick Draw McGraw for a new audience but every attempt to do so has been shot down by Warner Bros.

Many of the projects included a spaghetti western series made by Book of Life and El Tigre Creator Jorge R Gutiérrez, a Movie that only has one existing poster, a 90s tv special that never made it past the concept art, and a tv special in the same vain as Flintstones: On The Rocks.

Every character in the series except Snuffles appear in Jellystone!. Snooper, Baba Looey, and Augie were changed to females in the series.



The music was composed by Hoyt Curtin.

Theme Song Lyrics

Yipee yi-o ki-a

Galloping all the way

Great big star on his chest

Outdraws all of the rest

Fastest gun in the west

Yipee yi-o ki-a

Riding around your way

Here comes Quick Draw McGraw

The high-falutin'est

Fastest shootin'est

Cowboy you ever saw

That's Quick Draw McGraw
