Snuffles is an anthropomorphic cartoon dog appearing in animated television shorts produced by Hanna-Barbera beginning in 1959 on The Quick Draw McGraw Show. Daws Butler provided his voice.

Snuffles is a bloodhound used by Quick Draw McGraw to ferret out bad guys in the old West but needed to be bribed with a dog biscuit before performing his task. Upon chomping on one, he would hug himself in ecstasy, jump into the air and float back down, sighing. Occasionally, Snuffles would demand more than one biscuit, and was willing to accept them from bad guys as well.

Joseph Barbera once said that Snuffles was added to cartoons at the request of the sponsor, Kellogg's Cereals.[1]


Snuffles appeared in seven Quick Draw McGraw cartoons and one Snagglepuss cartoon:[2] He also made an appearance on the Johnny Bravo episode "Double Vision".
