The Huckleberry Hound Show is an animated American television series produced by Hanna-Barbera Productions for NBC's Saturday morning children's programming. It ran from 1958 to 1962, airing 68 episodes.

The show debuted with segments, Huckleberry Hound, Pixie and Dixie and Mr. Jinks and Yogi Bear, and later, Hokey Wolf.

Huckleberry was based on the 1953 Tex Avery cartoon character known as the Southern Wolf from the MGM cartoon, "The Three Little Pups and Billy Boy". Huckleberry's southern drawl and laid back mannerisms were inspired by Southern Wolf.
