Augie Doggie and Doggie Daddy
are Hanna-Barbera cartoon
characters who debuted on The Quick Draw McGraw Show

The segments centered around the misadventures of a dachshund
father-and-son team. Doggie Daddy (voiced by Doug Young
impersonating Jimmy Durante
) tried to do the best he could at raising his rambunctious son Augie (voiced by Daws Butler
). Augie, who loved his father, would often refer to him as "dear old Dad." Their mutual admiration included Daddy gently chiding, "Augie, my son, my son", when he would disappoint his father; and when his son would say or do something that inspired pride, Daddy would turn to the audience and say with a grin, "Dat's my boy who said dat!"
Augie Doggie and Doggie Daddy were animated by famous animator Al Bertino
, best known for his work for Disney. The character Augie was named after Bertino's son Augustine Bertino.
The segments and characters were similar to the Spike and Tyke
cartoons William Hanna
and Joseph Barbera
produced during their theatrical animation careers at MGM
in the 1940s and 1950s.
