Snuffles the Floating Dog

Celebrity Q&A
on July 14, 2011

What is the name of the dog in an early 1960s cartoon that floated up in the air on his back when he was very happy and satisfied, and then slowly came back down to earth?
—Sue Alexander, Crescent City, Fla.

That was Snuffles, who appeared in several episodes of The Quick Draw McGraw Show. Snuffles, voiced by the great cartoon voice artist Daws Butler, would point to his mouth when he wanted a dog biscuit. Once he ate it, he would hug himself, levitate upward several feet into the air and then float blissfully back down.
