Doggie Daddy is an anthropomorphic dog, father of a son, Augie, and one of the main title characters in the Augie Doggie and Doggie Daddy animated television shorts, which came as part of The Quick Draw McGraw Show. He is a parental figure who tries his best to raise his rambunctious son from all sorts of trouble. Though he may not be as competent as Augie, he shares a strong bond with him and is sometimes openly warm to his ambitious goals. His voice was originated by Doug Young.

Character description

Doggie Daddy is an adult male dog, most likely that of a Dachshund breed. He has orange fur and has black ears. He also wears a purple collar on his neck.

A smooth-talking parental figure, Daddy (or "dear old Dad" as Augie calls him) is a mentor with a heavy Brooklyn accent who would occassionally give out strict advise to his child Augie, though much often to the latter's dismay. Although he may have been a blustering old-fashioned father figure on the surface, he is no stranger to indulge in Aguie's wishes and is incredibly warm to accept them, no matter how ambitious and seemingly dangerous they are. Their mutual admiration includes Daddy gently chiding, "Augie, my son, my son", when he would disappoint his father; and when his son would say or do something that inspired pride, Daddy would turn to the audience with a smile and declare, "Dat's my boy who said dat!" In addition to his deep affection and concern for Augie, their strong bond is also what keeps Doggie Daddy from getting into trouble in most of their misadventures, either as a result of Daddy's parenting or Augie's schemes going too far.

When The Quick Draw McGraw Show was being developed, the concept of Augue Doggie & Doggie Daddy was concieved using traits from Spike & Tyke from the Tom and Jerry theatrical cartoons, including their father-son dynamic; they were made due in part to William Hanna and Joseph Barbera reusing ideas from their previous work at MGM.[2]

In a Variety magazine article on January 8, 1959, the father-son pair were originally named "Pete" and "Repete." A January 28 Variety article later stated that the series would be called "Arf and Arf,"[2] which was then changed to Augie Doggie and Doggie Daddy in the final product.

Similar to Spike, Doggie Daddy's voice was based on American actor and singer Jimmy Durante. Daws Bulter did not repeat on using a Durante impression like he did with Spike, as it was proven difficult to do and resulted in Barbera to hold auditions for the role. According to Doug Young in an interview with Stu Shostak, Butler ran into him at a library and was told to make an audition tape for Hanna-Barbera. Young auditioned for Doggie Daddy alongside comedic actor Peter Leeds.[2]
