Huckleberry Hound is a fictional cartoon character, a blue dog that speaks with a Southern drawl and has a relaxed, sweet, and well-intentioned personality. He first appeared in the series The Huckleberry Hound Show.

Most of his shorts consisted of Huck trying to perform jobs in different fields, ranging from policeman to dogcatcher, with results that backfired, yet usually coming out on top, either through slow persistence or sheer luck. Huck did not seem to exist in a specific time period as he has also been a Roman gladiator, a Medieval knight, and a rocket scientist.

One regular antagonist in the series was "Powerful Pierre", a tall and muscular unshaven character with a French accent. Another regular villain was "Dinky Dalton", a rough and tough western outlaw that Huck usually has to capture, and Crazy Coyote, an Indian who Huck often had to defeat who was his match. There were also two crows with Mafia accents who often annoyed Farmer Huck. Another trademark of Huck was his tone deaf and off-key rendition of "Oh My Darling, Clementine", often used as a running gag. He also commonly used the phrase "and stuff like that there" in place of "and so on".

He was voiced in the original cartoons in 1957 by Daws Butler, who had given a similar voice and characterization to Reddy. Butler denied he based the voice on Carolinian actor Andy Griffith, and had been using it since the late 1940s. For his part, Joseph Barbera recalls in his memoir "My Life in 'Toons" that, when asked to demonstrate a Southern drawl, Butler noted where there were a number of regional variants thereof.

His "birthday" is January 17th.
