Snagglepuss 1-0


Snagglepuss is a character created by Hanna-Barbera in 1959. He's best known for his famous catchphrase, "Heavens to Murgatroyd!", along with phrases such as "Exit, stage left!" (or stage right, and sometimes even up or down), a phrase used in theatrical stage directions. Finally, Snagglepuss tends to add the word "even" to the end of his statements.

Snagglepuss lives in a cavern, which he constantly tries to make more habitable for himself. No matter what he does, however, he always winds up back where he started or worse off than he was before.

In some episodes, Snagglepuss is chased by Major Minor (voiced by Don Messick), a tiny mustachioed hunter, whose chases seem similar to the ones which involve Elmer and Bugs Bunny. In terms of appearence and colour, he has a strong resemblance to the Pink Panther.

His "birthday" is September 30th.


He first appeared in several episodes of The Quick Draw McGraw Show and became a regular segment on The Yogi Bear Show. Daws Butler based the character's voice on Bert Lahr's Cowardly Lion in The Wizard of Oz, which at one point caused some confusion to the point where Mr. Lahr threatened legal action against Hanna-Barbera and Kellogg's. To resolve the matter, it was decided to include the on-screen message "Voice of Snagglepuss--Daws Butler" during the commercial segments.

In his earliest appearances, he was orange (and sometimes brown) instead of pink and called Snaggletooth. In later episodes, Snaggletooth was referred to as Snagglepuss' cousin.

Snagglepuss also appeared in other Hanna-Barbera series, such as Yogi's Gang in 1973, Scooby's All-Star Laff-a-Lympics in 1977 and 1978, Yogi's Treasure Hunt in 1985. When he appeared on Fender Bender 500, Snagglepuss was voiced by Greg Burson. He was paired up with Huckleberry Hound as they drove a monster truck called the Half-Dog, Half-Cat, Half-track; it resembled a portable stage. In Yo Yogi! (1991) Snagglepuss was voiced by Greg Burson as well.

Is Snagglepuss gay❓ 🏳️‍🌈

While LGBT pride, activists, and folklorists will like to use Snagglepuss as a gay icon because of his lavender fur colour, his lisping speech and his fondness for the theatrical, Joseph Barbera was once quoted as denying the likelihood, insisting that the character (and voice) were modelled on Bert Lahr (adding that Lahr "once beat up on his wife!").

Too, there were at least two episodes involving a would-be girlfriend, Lila, who rejected Snagglepuss as too boorish.

In February 2017, DC Comics announced a new Snagglepuss comic book series, drawn in a more realistic style, which reimagines the character as an openly gay playwright in 1950s New York. Advance artwork shows Snagglepuss discussing the matter with Augie Doggie. The artwork for this comic book series is created in Newfoundland.

Postcards from Snagglepuss

A regular fanfic feature at It's So Hanna-Barberaesque is "Postcards from Snagglepuss," as imagines Snagglepuss as a Charles Kuraltesque "on the road" reporter sharing postcards from some of the more interesting places around the country without being too preachy or jingoistic:

  1. So much for "See 7 States from Rock City" (the barn quilts around Caledonia, MN)
  2. So many bars. so little time (the 3rd Street bar district in LaCrosse, WI and the "bar jacket" culture so surrounding)
  3. Eat your heart out, Walmart; Family Dollar, even (as in discovering Horsfall's Variety Store in Lansing, IA; reference is made to Scoots of the Cattanooga Cats and his Magic Crayon)
  4. Imagination DOES exist beyond Disneyland (The House on the Rock, Spring Green, WI; first encounter with another Hanna-Barbera character on the side--in this instance, The King from Heyyy, It's the King!)
  5. The last easy-listening station on the radio? (wherein Our Host discovers the easy-listening tones of KNXR-FM in Rochester, MN--and encountering Mr. Jinx in treatment at the Mayo Clinic in that same city, over luncheon)
  6. Not your ordinary elevator by any stretch (the Fenelon Place Elevator in Dubuque, IA; Inch-High Private Eye is thus encountered)
  7. A most unlikely venue in the annals of rock, and in an equally-unlikely place (as in the Surf Ballroom in Clear Lake, IA; the Cattanooga Cats are performing there as well during Snagglepuss' visit)
  8. "But then again, it's all about the water" (which finds Snagglepuss in Iowa's Lake Okoboji region ... as well as finding his cousin, Snaggletooth, running an "old school" resort on East Lake Okoboji)
  9. Least Unlikely(?) to Play the Corn Palace (as finds Snagglepuss at the Corn Palace in Mitchell, SD, crossing paths with The Banana Splits in the bargain)
  10. Corny signs, Free Ice Water, 5-cent coffee--and what else exactly? (wherein we find Snagglepuss at the Wall Drug Store in Wall, SD--with Ricochet Rabbit and Droopalong Coyote encountered in the bargain)
  11. All-Star Winter Carnival Melody (with apologies to Donna Summer) (bringing an "all-star cast," so to speak, of fellow Hanna-Barbera characters to the St. Paul [MN] Winter Carnival)
  12. Resist the pull of these cinnamon rolls at your peril (which finds Snagglepuss at the legendary Tobie's Bakery in Hinckley, MN--where Monica of Dinky Dog turns out to be working)
  13. Try not to laugh at the very name of Duluth for once (as finds Snagglepuss in Duluth, MN, where he encounters the CB Bears with somewhat funsensical consequences)
  14. Highway 61 Not Yet Revisited (with apologies to Bob Dylan) (as continues his previous such with the CB Bears, only this time along the North Shore of Lake Superior and unto the Gunflint Trail in northern Minnesota's Boundary Waters region)
  15. Cold enough for you, or not so? (finding Our Boy in "the Icebox of the Nation," none other than International Falls, MN--with Crazy Claws in the bargain)
  16. So this is where it all begins? (at the headwaters of the Mississippi River, Itasca State Park, MN--with Huckleberry Hound as well)
  17. So this is what Main Street must be like (finding Snagglepuss at the Original Main Street in Sauk Centre, MN, as immortalised by Sinclair Lewis--with Motormouse and Autocat in the bargain, it turns out)

  20. Powah Shopping to Da Max (finding him at the Mall of America in Bloomington, MN alongside some of Hanna-Barbera's female types on a shopping [mis]adventure galore)
  21. Looking for a lost love in a most unlikely milieu (as in discovering his long-lost girlfriend Lyla during a tubing trip down the Apple River near Somerset, WI)
  22. Trying not to be cheesy in Wisconsin (obviously) (with a choice run-in unto Hokey Wolf and Ding-A-Ling in Colby, WI--as in Colby cheese, naturally--seeking advice on setting up a not-so-campy cheese shop)

  25. Where getting wet can actually be rather fun (as finds him with Jabberjaw's house band, The Neptunes, at one of the waterparks as made Wisconsin Dells famous in recent years)
  26. One unlikely gold mine of comedy gag fodder galore (continuing in Wisconsin Dells, only to meet up with Crazy Claws, its resident standup gagman from the Hanna-Barbera set, and thus learns just how ideal the Dells is as a source of comedy gags)

  135. And the Emerald Coast was rather wonderful (continuing the pamphleting run of Snagglepuss and Crazy Claws, finding them this time in Panama City Beach and Ft. Walton Beach for the most part)
  136. So this is "Florabama"? (essentially a recap of the story arc previous before continuing onward towards further misadventures)
  137. O, for the short-notice Convocations! (explaining the fetish for organising such with Huckleberry Hound on short notice, and touching in brief on the recent such in fanfic form at the Minneapolis Aquatennial)
  138. Just a few random items from the Minneapolis Aquatennial Convocation (as in some of his misadventures, so to speak, during a recent Character Convocation thus referenced)
  139. Just relaximg among one of Minnesota's Ten THousand Lakes (as in a short rest for Our Boy in a cabin somewhere among said Ten THousand Lakes of Minnesota, with the Hair Bear Bunch paying a cameo visit)
  140. And what a Great Minnesota Get-Together it certainly is! (as in the Minnesota State Fair, and his experiences therewith)
  141. Beauty somehow underappreciated (which finds Our Boy driving through Southeast Minnesota and Northeast Iowa, and the rather interesting scenic beauties therefor, towards a new rendezvous in McGregor, Iowa)

  149. So you think you're seeing a "cliffhanger" scenario here (which, as it emerges, involves an overnight bus trip for the crew--after the Hair Bear Bunch take their leave for the moment--between Treasure Island Casino and what turns out being a disused open-pit mine on the Mesabi Iron Range of northern Minnesota, encountering Peter Potamus and a zeppelin for the journey onward)
  150. "Up Ship!" (and then some) with Peter Potamus (beginning a new twist in the ensuing story arc, with Peter Potamus' Magic Zeppelin taking off ... and his relating a story about what inspired him to go the Zeppelin route, in crossover with Lum and Abner)
  151. Not even a 767 can match the view from a zeppelin (as in Peter Potamus' such, now cruising well underway southwestwards from the Mesabi Iron Range of northern Minnesota, heading through South Dakota and Nebraska and around Pike's Peak and the Sangre de Cristo range)

  157. The Poor Man's Palm Springs, as it were (with the entire company spending some time in the hot-spring pool of a motel in Desert Hot Springs, California ... and explaining a rather creative way the motel's owner advised bathers that their 15 minutes was up)
  158. Heavens to Redondo Beach! (which sees Hokey Wolf driving the tour bus from Desert Hot Springs to a "mystery destination" as turns out being Redondo Beach, CA, with all essentially left to their devices)

  163. As unlikely a place and time for a Character Convocation as it can get--or can it?!! (explaining Steamboat Springs, CO in Winter Carnival time and its selection as the home of the current Character Convocation story arc for blog's sake)
  164. Just some random notes from our Steamboat Springs Winter Carnival confab (self-explanatory, for the most part)
  165. Just some random thoughts following another successful(?) character convocation (again, the title is self-explanatory)
  166. Goodbye, Steamboat--but not before seeing Lyla again (which finds Snagglepuss and Huckleberry Hound leaving Steamboat Springs for points southbound ahead of an imminent winter storm, preceded by a pre-dawn snowshoeing run with Snagglepuss' girlfriend Lyla on the trails above Steamboat)
  167. Most Unlikely Meeting While Waiting Out A Winter Storm (whereby Snagglepuss and Hucklebrry Hound, having ended the Steamboat Springs Winter Carnival Convocation, wait out a storm at a motel in Walensburg, Colorado--only to discover that Scooby-Doo and crew are in an adjoining room)
  168. So it's back on the road, but cautiously (as in Snagglepuss and Huckleberry Hound, after some lunch, fianlly being able to continue onward with the opening of Raton Pass along I-25)
  169. That OTHER Las Vegas (Finding Snagglepuss and Huckleberry Hound, once past Raton Pass via I-25 in New Mexico, in Las Vegas, NM ... only to hear of another Imminent Winter Storm forcing their staying the night thus)

  173. Looking for The Original DeLuxe Fruitcake (entailing Snagglepuss and Huckleberry Hound heading easterly from El Paso towards ...)
  174. Fruitcake Ahead! (which sees Snagglepuss and Huckleberry Hound in Corsicana, TX to pay homage to The Original DeLuxe Fruitcake, Corsicana's Pride--and buying a few such)
  175. So fruitcake wasn't good enough, you said ... (finding Snagglepuss and Huckleberry Hound at the Eilenberger Bakery of Palestine, TX, whose claim to fame is the Texas Pecan Cake)
  176. Driving on the state line, and obviously (as in Texarkana, TX/AR, with detour to an obscure barbecue place in Okay, AR)
