Following the success of their first animated series for television, ``The Ruff & Reddy Show,'' producers William Hanna and Joseph Barbera had another hit with their next endeavor. Premiering in 1958, ``Huckleberry Hound'' introduced the world to the affable, blue-skinned canine with a Southern drawl, who calmly conquered obstacles standing in the way of the many occupations he held: cowboy, chef, lion tamer, police officer, farmer and ``stuff like that there.'' Despite the popularity of the title character, the show's supporting segments would help launch an even bigger cartoon icon: the ``smarter than the average bear,'' Yogi Bear.
