Trivia / The Huckleberry Hound Show

  • Crossdressing Voices: Don Messick did the majority of the female voices in the earlier cartoons, usually voicing rather unattractive-looking women (such as the ugly Damsel in Distress in "Sir Huckleberry Hound"). Daws Butler did a few occasional small girl voices.
  • Keep Circulating the Tapes: Many of the episodes are not available on DVD; a vol. 1 DVD set was released.
  • No Budget: As with so many other Hanna-Barbera cartoons, the budget for Huckleberry Hound was tiny, around $6,000 per short (even in 1958 that was paltry). Compare that to the last Tom & Jerry shorts Hanna and Barbera made for MGM a couple years earlier, which had budgets of close to $60,000!
  • Talking to Himself: Daws Butler and Don Messick did all of the character voices.
