Quick Draw MCGraw show information

Quick Draw was usually depicted in his shorts (which were set in the American Old West) as a sheriff. Quick Draw was often accompanied by his deputy, a Mexican burro with a stereotypical Spanish accent named Baba Looey, who was also voiced by Butler.

Quick Draw was depicted as a satire of the westerns that were popular among the American public at the time. His personality was well intentioned, but somewhat dim; oftentimes, Baba Looey would make a more accurate assessment of the problem at hand than Quick Draw would. Whenever that happened, Quick Draw would often utter his catchphrase: "Now hoooooold on thar, Baba Looey! I'll do the thinnin' [thinking] around here, and doooon't you forget it!" Quick Draw also spoke with a heavy drawl, as shown by his catchphrase.

Although Quick Draw was himself a horse, this did not stop the show's producers from depicting him riding into town on a "real" horse, or, as seen in the show's opening credits, driving a stagecoach pulled by "real" horses into a town. This aspect was made light of in the 1980s made-for-television film The Good, the Bad, and Huckleberry Hound, which featured Quick Draw.

In a series of episodes, Quick Draw would also assume the identity of the masked vigilante, "El Kabong" (a parody of Zorro). As El Kabong, Quick Draw would attack his foes by swooping down on a rope and hitting them on the head with an acoustic guitar, producing a distinctive kabong sound and destroying the guitar in the process.

Quick Draw McGraw's supporting characters in The Quick Draw McGraw Show's two other segments were Augie Doggie and Doggie Daddy, a father-and-son pair of dogs, and Snooper and Blabber, a pair of detectives who were a cat and a mouse.

Quick Draw McGraw

Quick Draw was usually depicted as a sheriff in these short films set in the American Old West. Each episode was approximately six minutes long; this allowed four episodes per half-hour program with commercial advertisements in between. Quick Draw was often accompanied by his deputy, a Mexican burro called Baba Looey (Desi Arnaz had a hit song in the 1950s called "Babalu"), who spoke English with a Mexican accent and was also voiced by Butler. In the Latin-American version, Quick Draw (Tiro Loco McGraw) speaks in a very English-influenced accent, and Baba Looey (Pepe Trueno) speaks in a very Mexican accent, so it was clear that Quick Draw was the alien, and there was no need to adapt any feature of the story.

Quick Draw McGraw's supporting characters

in The Quick Draw McGraw Show's two other segments were Augie Doggie and Doggie Daddy, father-and-son dogs (the father played as a parody of Jimmy Durante), and Super Snooper and Blabbermouse, cat and mouse detective partners.

Quick Draw MCGraw lyrics

Yippee yi-o ki-a,?
Galloping all the way?
Here comes Quick Draw McGraw.?

Yippee yi-o ki-a,?
Galloping all the way?
Great big star on his chest.?
Outdraws all of the rest.?
Fastest gun in the west.?

Yippee yi-o ki-a,?
Riding around your way,?
Here comes Quick Draw McGraw.?
The high-falutin'est,?
Fastest shootin'est,?
Cowboy you ever saw.?
That's Quick Draw McGraw.
