Iddy Biddy Buddy

During Hanna-Barbera's early years from 1958 to 1962, a character known as "Iddy Biddy Buddy" was introduced. The character bared many similarities to Yakky Doodle and appeared in multiple shorts including, Pixie and Dixie and Mr. Jinks: "A Wise Quack", Augie Doggie: "Gone to the Ducks", "Let's Duck Out" and "Yuk-Yuk Duck", and Snooper and Blabber: "De-Duck-Tives", sometimes appearing in different colors. Although the character disappeared after Yakky Doodle was introduced, he still went on to appear with other lesser known characters, Ka-Pow and Ding-a-Ling, as they would usually be paired up with Huckleberry Hound in the Hanna-Barbera's Fun Time comics.
