Snuffles - Brown hound dog who
loved doggie treats seen on the cartoon series QUICK DRAW
Snuffles was called into action when equine marshal
Quick Draw McGraw was on the trail of a bad guy. But before Snuffles
would use his "sniffing" abilities to track down the criminals, he
first had to be fed a special doggie-biscuit treat. Pointing to his
mouth, Snuffles directed Quick Draw to feed him.
swallowed his doggie treat, he began to joyfully swoon with delight
(voiced by Daws Butler), hug himself, levitate into mid-air and then
slowly return to earth as he concluded his orgasmic eating frenzy.
If Snuffles didn't receive a treat, he refused to do his
tracking duties. So, Quick Draw made certain that he kept doggie
treats in his arsenal of weapons. But sometimes, the supply ran low
and that's when Snuffles showed his semi-loyalty to his job.
Snuffles' snack-loving trait was later incorporated into the
personality of a dog named Scooby Doo. In 1974, Snuffles the dog
appeared on the cereal box cover of
Kellogg's Apple Jacks.

series DASTARDLY & MUTTLEY IN THEIR FLYING MACHINES/CBS/1969-71.

proud Muttley floated into the air.
