Quick Draw McGraw - The Hanna-Barbera cartoon QUICK DRAW MCGRAW/SYN/1959-61 featured a bumbling, gun-totting New Mexico marshal in the guise of a horse named Quick Draw McGraw and his Mexican burro sidekick, Baba-Looey (a.k.a. "Baba Boy").

Quick Draw got his name by being fast with a pencil when drawing mustaches on faces during his younger pony years.

Quick Draw's crime fighting alter-ego El Kabong!, a Zorro look-alike, subdued bad guys by hitting them on the head with a guitar ("Kabong!").

Quick Draw battled such outlaws as Big Chief Little Runt, Bow-Wow Bandit, Horse Face Harry, Slippery Earl Slick, Sundown Sam, and a pirate named Walker de Plank. Quick Draw's catchphrase is "I'll do the thin'in (thinking) around here," and "dooooon't you forget it!" His girlfriend is a cute little filly named Sagebrush Sal.

Quick Draw's hound dog Snuffles tracked down the bad guys only after Quick Draw gave him a doggie biscuit treat. When he ate the treat, Snuffles floated happily up in to the air and then slowly returned to the ground.

Theme Song 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.
