Added DiffLines:

* BlackComedy: Huck is implied to have ''died'' when he is crushed by the weight of a lion after he attempts to make it do the tightrope act.
-->'''Lion:''' (''after picking up Huck's hat from underneath him'') Heh, it's just as well. This kid wasn't gonna make it anyhow!

Added DiffLines:

* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: The few times Huckleberry's MellowFellow attitude breaks are always a sign things are about to go downhill fast for somebody.


* FunnyAnimal: Huckleberry Hound. Most of the supporting shorts, like Yogi Bear and Pixie and Dixie, have CivilizedAnimal leads instead, but Huck is humanized to the point of being antagonized by "normal" dogs and having an actual career.



* TalkingAnimal: Huck is clearly one.


* DeepSouth: Implied to be from this region, judging from his Southern accent.

Added DiffLines:

* CheatersNeverProsper: Whenever Huck is in competition with Powerful Pierre.
** Huck manages to legit win the ski race in "Ski Champ Chump" while Pierre's dirty tricks only hinder him.

Added DiffLines:

* MosquitoMiscreants: The episode "Skeeter Trouble" pits Huck against a very persistent mosquito (and later a whole swarm) that ruins his peaceful camping trip.

* MailmanVsDog: The whole premise of the episode "Postman Panic". It's quite ironic since Huck is a dog himself.

to:

* CryLaughing: Huck does this at least twice at the end of a cartoon.
** In "Huck's Hack", when the majority of his reward money for capturing the robber goes toward the consequence of leaving his taxi meter running all night.
** Also happens at the end of "Cop and Saucer" when Huck gets abducted by the alien he was trying to arrest. He then hears a news broadcast of men from outer space invading, which the announcer comments on how it's the most ridiculous thing he's ever heard.

''The Huckleberry Hound Show'' debuted in 1958 as Creator/HannaBarbera's second post-MGM original character (''Ruff and Reddy'' was the first). It was the first American all-cartoon show developed specifically for television and, in 1959, became the first animated TV show to win an Emmy. Voiced by Creator/DawsButler, the easygoing Huck was shown in a variety of settings, from Arthurian England to (then) modern times.

** MeaningfulName: He's the color of a real-life huckleberry.
* BowlingBallWhistle: This is the show where it all began. The intro of that show was the very first place the sound was used in. Since then, it was used in most of Hanna-Barbera's productions, before the sound made its way to other animation studios.
