Augie Doggie and Doggie Daddy is a series of animated segments as part of The Quick Draw McGraw Show, produced by Hanna-Barbera Productions for syndication. It ran from 1959 to 1962, airing 45 episodes that spanned three seasons.
The show centers around a pair of a father-and-son duo of dogs, in which Doggie Daddy must raise his rambunctious son Augie as a single parent.
As with most of the rest of The Quick Draw McGraw Show, the series has yet to have a complete series DVD release by Warner Archive Collection due to some of the music being held by some entity, who prevents its use.
The two themselves most likely took inspiration from Spike and Tyke from the Tom and Jerry franchise, and the voice of Doggie Daddy was based on that of Jimmy Durante.
The music was composed by Hoyt Curtin. At the height of the series' popularity, the theme song was given lyrics:
Augie Dog was feeling sad 'till he learned from Doggie Dad--
Ears can flop and tails can wag--flippity, floppity, wiggeldy, waggeldy--
All of your troubles away

Over the years, Augie and Daddy have joined in many of their good friend Yogi Bear's groups, such as Yogi's Gang in Yogi's Gang, Yogi Yahooeys in Laff-A-Lympics and Yogi's Treasure Hunters in Yogi's Treasure Hunt, they also had various other appearances, such as in Yo, Yogi!, the MetLife commercial entitled "Everyone," and Daddy also made a cameo in The Good, the Bad and Huckleberry Hound and in the I Am Weasel episode "I Am My Lifetime" as an elder, but made very little recent appearances until they both appeared for the Jellystone! reboot, in which Augie is a girl and Daddy is more portrayed as an over protective helicopter parent.
In popular culture
- In the Family Guy episode "Brothers & Sisters," Lois tries to talk her sister, Carol, out of marrying Mayor Adam West, since it didn't work out with her third husband, Doggie Daddy, due to a son from a previous marriage. He then casually pops up to inform Carol he's available now because Augie's "all grown up now [and] out of the house."
- In the Gui and Estopa episode "As Encomendas" ("Orders"), Augie and Daddy are seen waiting in line for the Scooby Snacks store.
In the 1960's (possibly 1965), Purex Co. released an Augie Doggie bubble club, a bath soap container, as part of their bubble club line for Hanna-Barbera.
In 1998, Warner Bros. released a bean bag of Augie exclusively in their store.
