Favorite Fictional Character --- Snagglepuss


If Hanna-Barbera ever made a gay cartoon character, it would be Snagglepuss.  How else do you explain a pink mountain lion, who is always concerned about making his cave a habitable, comfortable place to live.  I mean, how spoiled can you get, even.  Heavens to Murgatroyd, how else do you account for all the stage directions that litter his dialogue.


I adored Snagglepuss as a kid.  Whether he was with teamed up with Quick Draw McGraw, who will make an appearance in this feature at some point in time, or on his own show, he was a hoot to listen too.  He was even one of my favorite characters on the Laff-A-Lympics cartoon.  He is finicky, hilarious, over the top, and just an all around cool cat.  He even has an Elmer Fudd type hunter after him all the time, and thankfully he is just as bad as poor old Elmer.  It's time to exit stage left, even!

I could not put a face to that name, I wonder if I knew him by some translated name

I think I saw Snagglepuss much later in life, probably with the advent of Cartoon Network that beamed a lot of Hanna-Barbera cartoons.

Haha, I remember him. :) And we were talking of Hanna-Barbera not long ago too. :D

It's been soooo long since I saw Snagglepuss! Loved him (and all the Hanna-Barbera characters)!

I have no idea who this is!! So sad! He looks like Pink Panther to me.
