Saturday Morning's Forgotten Heroes: Quick Draw McGraw vs. Dynamite Kaboom (1961)

From season 3 of Quick Draw McGraw comes McGraw's meeting with Dynamite Kaboom, blessed, or cursed, if you prefer, with one of the oddest outlaw names in cartoon history.

Andrew Youngs uploaded "Dynamite Fright":




This kicks off a lengthy look at entries from Saturday Morning Cartoons: The 1960's, Volume 1, released in 2009. Prepare to flash back to your childhood if you're from the "baby boomer" generation like I am.

For what it's worth, while Quick Draw is driving an empty stagecoach in the open, it's filled at the end of the show, with Baba Looey riding shotgun in the back, and co-stars Snooper & Blabber and Augie Doggie & Doggie Daddy as passengers. There were no bumpers on the DVD illustrating interaction among the six stars, unlike on Huckleberry Hound. Then again, they'd make up for that years later on Yogi's Gang.

Rating: B.

I'm not a Baby Boomer, but Quick Draw was as much a part of my childhood as the rest!

I'd never seen the intro before, and it seems HB were influenced by Tex Avery with that stagecoach wheel gag.

Is it a form of irony that a horse is driving a stagecoach drawn by two other horses?

That's about as good an explanation as any.
