The height of Huckleberry Hound

POSTED: February 8, 2021

Lying in bed one morning my mind drifted to something that interested me on several occasions at the age of eleven or twelve. I used to ask myself what would happen if Huckleberry Hound and other Hanna-Barbera characters came to life. I asked this a long time before Who Killed Roger Rabbit? offered some kind of explanation.

I guessed that Huckleberry Hound would have the height of a twelve year old, coming almost up to the shoulders of an adult. I also decided that he would have smooth shiny skin of the same kind of reflective quality as beach-balls.

When I got up I decided to google “Huckleberry Hound height”. I got no relevant results at all. I then hunted down some images and turned this up.

Based on the height of Ranger Smith, I think I had Huckleberry Hound’s height about right. I had a surprise, though, with Yogi Bear who stands as tall as the ranger. As does Snagglepuss.

I had to look up most of the rest. I knew Top Cat, and knew Quick Draw Mcgraw, but couldn’t have named him. However Augie Doggie and Doggie Daddy meant nothing at all to me.

I also suspect that they might not have skin as glossy as I suspected although they do have uniformly smooth skin which would look pretty alien in real life.
