->''"Why ''did'' Quick-Draw [=McGraw=] hang around with that freaky little mule?"''
-->--'''Trent Lane''', ''WesternAnimation/{{Daria}}''.

Yet another TalkingAnimal omnibus series from Creator/HannaBarbera, ''Quick Draw [=McGraw=]'' followed the adventures of the equine sheriff with an exaggerated southern drawl, who upheld law and order in TheWildWest with the aid of Baba Looey, a Mexican burro with a Spanish accent, and Snuffles, a biscuit-mooching dog. Whenever Baba Looey questioned his partner's motives, Quick Draw uttered his CatchPhrase: "Hold on thar, Baba Looey! I'll do the thin'in' around here, and don't you for-git ''it''!"

The cartoon spoofed nearly every Western trope known. Sometimes, Quick Draw assumed the heroic identity of the swashbuckling El Kabong, bashing outlaws with his guitar. There were two supporting segments: ''Augie Doggie and Doggie Daddy'' (a single parent dog raising his son) and ''Super Snooper and Blabbermouse'' (the misadventures of two {{Detective Animal}}s). Quick-Draw/El Kabong was also in an episode of ''HarveyBirdmanAttorneyAtLaw'', in which the right to wield a guitar was treated in a manner [[SeriousBusiness similar to gun law debates]].

!!This series provides examples of:

* {{Accessory Wearing Cartoon Animal}}s: Quick Draw, Baba Looey and Doggie Daddy.
** Except that Doggie Daddy wore a dog-collar, which most dogs wear anyway.
* AnimatedAnthology
* AshFace: As demonstrated in the trope image.
* {{Bandito}}: Referred to by name.
* BarefootCartoonAnimals: Snooper and Blabber. Matter of fact, ''none'' of the main characters wear shoes.
** Except Quick-draw...
* CatchPhrase: "I'll do the thin'in around here, and don't you forget it!"
** "Now hold on thar!"
** "Ooh, that smarts!"
* ChasteToons: Averted, of course, with Doggie Daddy. Also averted in the Quick Draw [=McGraw=] short ''El Kabong, Jr.'', though Junior was never heard from again.
* CourtroomEpisode: One episode was about a trial where Baba Looey was testifying for the prosecution.
* DetectiveAnimal: Snooper and Blabber are a cat-and-mouse detective team.
* EarlyBirdCameo: Snagglepuss appears in episodes of each segment as an antagonist. He's colored a deep orange.
* EvilTwin: Horse-Face Harry.
** A ''Snooper and Blabber'' episode has an evil scientist creating an army of Snooper robots programmed to commit crimes so Snooper has to thwart the scientist and clear himself. After he does:
-->'''Policeman:''' Good work, Snooper. You'll get a big reward for capturing this criminal.
-->'''Snooper:''' Reward?! I just wanted to [[ClearMyName clear me good name]]. I ain't ''interested'' in no reward! [[HypocriticalHumor And when do I collect it?]]
* {{Expy}}: Quick Draw's ''alter ego'', El Kabong, seems to be a nod toward ''El {{Zorro}}''. In an in-house example, Snuffles exaggerated reaction (to "dawwwg bis-kits", in his case) would be shared by a number of Hanna-Barbera pooches in response to a variety of treats.
** Quick Draw had another 'alter ego', The Whip (with Baba Looey as The Whippersnaper) based on Lash Larue, King of the Bullwhips or Whip Wilson.
* FunnyAnimal
* FurryConfusion: The hero is an anthropomorphic horse. But since the setting is the Old West, many ''real'' horses also appear. Not immediately noticeable because the real horses tend to be more realistically drawn and the hero is roughly human-sized. And, of course, Quick Draw himself is ''never'' seen riding a horse!
** In the opening of his TV show, Quick Draw was seen driving a stagecoach pulled by two horses.
* TheGhost: Snooper and Blabber's secretary Hazel, who communicates to the duo via a two-way car radio. She fills them in on any calls for a case and the status of her parakeet's health.
* HalfDressedCartoonAnimal: Augie Doggie.
* IDontPayYouToThink: "Hoold on there, Baba Louie! I'll do all the thin'ing around here, and dooon't you forget it!"
* InstrumentOfMurder: El Kabong's guitar.
* {{Malaproper}}: In "Bull Leave Me", Quick Draw is in Argentina helping an estate owner rid his land of a smart-aleck bull. The owner tests Quick Draw on his credibility as a gaucho:
-->'''Owner:''' What is a gaucho?
-->'''Quick Draw:''' A gaucho is one of the MarxBrothers!
** In an episode taking place in a courtroom, an attorney objects to testimony that is "irrelevent, immaterial, and calls for a conclusion on the part of the witness." Later in the cartoon, Quick Draw objects that the testimony is "an elephant, a cereal, and calls for a concussion on the part of the witness."
* MissingMom: Doggie Daddy is a single father raising his son, Augie.
* MoralDissonance: In the Augie Doggie cartoon "Talk It Up, Pup", Augie gives Doggie Daddy the silent treatment for 24 hours because Doggie Daddy (as umpire) called Augie out on strikes to end a Little League baseball game. "It was right over the plate," Doggie Daddy states, but Augie purely believes that nepotism should have prevailed and the rule should have been waived on his behalf. Doggie Daddy's attempts to get Augie to talk results in him being hospitalized at the end, and only ''after'' the 24 hours are up does Augie start speaking to him again.
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Snooper is patterned after Archie the bartender from the 1940s radio comedy ''Duffy's Tavern'', and Doggie Daddy's voice is patterned after Jimmy Durante.
** The antagonist of the Quick Draw cartoon "Yippee Coyote" caricatures the mannerisms and voice of Jerry Lewis.
** Snagglepuss is Bert Lahr - specifically, his Cowardly Lion from ''Film/TheWizardOfOz''.
* NothingButSkinAndBones: In one cartoon, Snagglepuss steals one of Quick-Draw's biggest, fattest sheep, then shears it down to prepare it for dinner. It is then that he discovers that the sheep is rail thin underneath its wool.
-->'''Snagglepuss:''' They don't call him "Wooly Boy" for nothin'!
* SpeechImpairedAnimal: Zig-zagged--Blabber slurs his "S's" when he talks.
* WesternCharacters
* TheWildWest
