Ding-a-Ling is an anthropomorphic wolf and the younger sidekick to Hokey Wolf in the Hokey Wolf shorts. He was voiced by Doug Young impersonating Buddy Hackett.

In the Huckleberry Hound comics from Dell, he is referred to as a fox and his full name is given as Ding-a-Ling Fox.[3]

In the Yo, Yogi! animated TV series, he appears as Mayor Hokey's publicist.

In the Jellystone! reboot, Ding's portrayed as a child and appears as a student in El Kabong's class, though so far, despite appearing several times, has yet to have any dialogue, unless of course you count the part where he was laughing with the crowd in "Catanooga Cheese Explosion."
