The Good, the Bad, and Huckleberry Hound is a 1988 animated made-for-television film produced by Hanna-Barbera for syndication as part of the Hanna-Barbera Superstars 10 series. The feature is a parody of various western movies, the title is a take-off of The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, and a major plot point is lifted from High Noon. The constant references to Huckleberry as a "mysterious, steely-eyed, and silent-type stranger" (though Huck is just being himself) spoof the western stock character of the Man with No Name. Several other plot points are lifted from well-known western films, such as High Plains Drifter. The film also marks the final time Daws Butler voiced Huckleberry Hound, Quick Draw McGraw and Baba Looey, Snagglepuss, Hokey Wolf, Peter Potamus, and Yogi Bear, as he died 3 days after its telecast.
Country Of Origin

Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The 2-hour animated TV movie The Good, the Bad and the Huckleberry Hound was part of the syndicated "Hanna Barbera Superstars 10" package. The star of the proceedings is, of course, Huckleberry Hound, who at the start of the film is seen arriving in the Old West town of Two Bit. Intending to cash in a gold nugget, Huck is robbed by the scurrilous Dalton gang. To prevent further larceny, Huck accepts the job of town sheriff. It is somewhat gratifying to note that, after 30 years' faithful service to Hanna-Barbera, Huckleberry is finally given a romantic interest in the form of female pooch Desert Flower. Also making guest appearances are such H-B favorites as Yogi Bear, Hokey Wolf, Quick Draw McGraw, Snagglepuss, Peter Potamus, Baba Looey and Boo Boo.
