Adventures of Huck Hound
During the 20's, a lot of segregation was around and he became friends with Snagglepuss' cousin Niggerpuss who would later change his name to Negropuss in 1933. They would travel the south with a Minstrel Group called The Kentucky Fried Chickens...and none of the members even lived in Kentucky!
His adventures through the south made him a legend when he would paint the fences red in St. Louis, Missouri for a dollar per house. And at night, he would serenade the people with "Clementine"...but would later get kicked-out of the house after singing.
Between 1933 and 1945, Huck would do a lot of odd jobs such as being a Police officer, a Fireman, a Doctor, a Scientists, and even a Prostitute. But once Huck sang, he would get fired from these jobs.
In 1945, Huckleberry Hound made a vow of silence by becoming a Friar (He was known as Friar Huck at that time) and for 12 years he never spoke. It wasn't until 1957 where Huck sang...and it was very bad, so he was thrown-out of the convent.
But to make matters better, Huck met with Bill Hanna and Joe Barbera who were near the convent (which was in San Diego) and they wanted some new acts since Tom and Jerry left them because they wern't interested in a movie where they would talk. (Tom was interested, but Jerry wasn't).
Huckleberry Hound Show
Huckleberry Hound would have his own TV Show for a few years, but since Yogi Bear would steal picnic baskets from the show...he would steal the spotlight too...so he was replaced rather than be on the show.
Huck's singing would be a sign that he would be the southern version of Bob Dylan. And they were right...his version of "Blowin' in the Wind" didn't become a hit until Huck met with Dylan...but Bob Dylan just took Huck's version of the song and redid it himself by adding his vocals and music.
Huckleberry Hound would never make it big after 1964 when The Beatles would come to his house and eat and drink Huck's Huckleberries. John Lennon was to say that The Beatles were bigger than Huckleberry Hound rather than Jesus Christ later on.
In 1969, Huckleberry Hound would try and make a comeback special called "HUCK" and this was when The Smothers Brothers got cancelled. Once CBS heard Huck sing...they played a rerun of "The Smothers Brothers" since it was less offensive.
In 1973, Huckleberry Hound would return with his friends Yogi Bear, Snagglepuss, Touche Turtle, Magilla Gorilla, and other Hanna-Barbera characters with the exception of Loopy de Loop who couldn't get out of bed and no one cared about him anyway. And the show would have a flying ark which would try and save the world (like Captain Planet without being wiccan).
But it wouldn't be until 1987, where he would star in "The Good, The Bad, and The Huckleberry Hound" which made Saturday Mornings a day to sleep in. And it was also the time where Huck and Snagglepuss would get married!
His Marriage to Snagglepuss
For awhile, Huck and Snagglepuss would have a relationship and they were married in San Fransisco. The marriage was rocky in the first place since Snagglepuss was too needy. It wasn't until 1997 when this relationship would end when Snagglepuss was sleeping with Mr. Hat.
When the divorce was finalized, Huck would later reveal his times of being gay. He would later marry Clementine in 2001 so that his reputation would be salvaged...but it was a little too late.
