The 10 coolest dogs from the cartoons. Wow, 2,500 reads!


Frisky the nut

Who is the super hero?

Remember your favorite cartoons?


No I didn't like Under Dog, Scappy Doo, or Scooby Dumb. So, they didn't make it.

The good old cartoons always had awesome dogs in them whether they were sidekicks or the main characters. Here are my twelve favorites.

I almost included the St. Benard from Looney Toons.I loved this nut! He would find a frozen person in an avalanche, dig them up, and make a Martini with the barrel he wore. Then he would drink the Martini! I couldn't find any footage on him though.

12. Bullseye from M.U.S.H. (Mangy Unwanted Shabby Heroes)- He was a nut! This was a great cartoon from the archives.

11. The Dog from Foghorn Leghorn- The back and forth between those two was great. Great I say!

10. Charlie Dog from Looney Toons- He was 1/2 boxer, 1/2 pointer, 1/2 Doberman Pincher, and almost all Labrador Retriever. Show him a Labrador, and he'll retrieve her.

9. Pluto, Mickey Mouse's Dog.We all remember him.

8. Frisky, the little brown terrier from Looney Toons, with long black ears. He barked all of the time and chased his cat to the ceiling with his "rawr, rawr, rawr, ". He was fun!

7. Astro, from the Jetsons- Rup! He's rumber reven!

6. Goofy, from Disney. Mickey Mouse loves dopey dogs I guess!

5. Mutley, The Dick Dastardly Sidekick-Who could forget his laugh. He was awesome, though he was bad.

4. Brian, from The Family Guy-One of the smarter Griffins, he was always trying to talk sense into Peter and put the moves on Lois. His interaction with Mr. Herbert was hysterical!

3. Scooby Doo- He has his own snacks named after him! Riding around in the mystery machine all day, always put him in the mood for a Scooby Snack. I know that some of you are mad that he isn't higher, but come on, number 3 is "Row Kay!"

2. Snoopy- The lazy beagle that watched Charlie Brown bumble everywhere. He was the sidekick with a sidekick. That was new!

1. Hong Kong Phooey- "The number one Super Guy." He was awesome and his theme music was too! The crazy janitor that knew how to kick butt!

Snoopy is my favorite cartoon dog. I've loved Snoopy since I was a kid in the 1960s. Hong Kong Phooey was funny (Scatman Crothers had a great voice) but Snoopy is my man--I mean, dog.

One little correction: Mutley was the sidekick for Dick Dastardly, not for Snidely Whiplash.(Snidley Whiplash was in the Dudley Doright cartoon, while Dastardly and Mutley tried to stop the Pigeon and win the 'wacky races'.)

Snoopy-He was my favorite and still is. Astro he would have to be second runner up. I did grow up watching others. These two are my favorites though. Great hub.

Sweet wishes Rhonda

Snoopy was one of my favorites growing up. I can't believe that the Scooby fans are'nt speaking up yet.

I used to watch Muttley all of the time.I mistyped when I said his master was other than Dick Dastardly. I loved that when I was a kid.

Nice roundup of cartoon dogs. You have to smile as you think of each of them, with their own unique silliness. I enjoyed this and voted up.

Hey, just saw this article and thought it really cute! Love Astro from The Jetsons. You should do an article on favorite cartoon movie dogs...and include Itchy from All Dogs Go to Heaven! His arrival at the pearly gates was so funny.

Thanks Amanda! I may just do that. It will take longer because there are so many cartoon movies I have not seen yet. But that was a good idea!
