Top 10 Coolest Cartoon Dogs
Dogs are often called man's best friend because of the fun and silliness they bring into people's lives, but they should also be called cartoons' best friends because few cartoons are complete without them. We're taking a look at some of the coolest cats...er, dogs in the game.
#10. Cartoon Dogs - Astro
Astro was found by Elroy in season one, on the fourth episode of The Jetsons. Elroy's dad George wanted a robot dog instead, but decided to keep Astro after he unwittingly stopped the Jetsons from being robbed. It was later discovered that Astro was really Tralfaz, the long-lost pet dog of zillionaire J.P. Gottrockets. Ruh-roh!
#9. Cartoon Dogs - Huckleberry Hound
The Huckleberry Hound show premiered in the 1950s, making Hannah-Barbera a true household name. Huck was a bright blue, sweet and laidback dog with a southern accent. Mostly Huck bounced from job to job - being anything from a cop to dogcatcher. He wasn't exactly good at any of them but usually managed to stumble through on sheer luck.
#8. Cartoon Dogs - Clifford the Big Red Dog
Clifford originally shot to stardom when he was featured in his own series of children's books, but made his television debut in 2000 when his show began on PBS Kids. Clifford was the runt of the litter who was picked out by Emily Elizabeth Howard on her birthday. Little did she know that he would grow to 25 feet tall. With a heart as big as his massive paws, Clifford is an easy dog to love.
#7. Cartoon Dogs - Spike the Wonderdog
Spike the Wonderdog is the Pickles family's brown "Siberian tiger hound". Poor Spike is a good-natured dog who often gets blamed for mischief that Angelica's cat Fluffy gets into. Spike is protective towards his human family but really he's just a big teddy bear at heart.
#6. Cartoon Dogs - Wile E. Coyote
While a coyote is not technically a dog, its Latin name means "barking dog" (and it sure does look like a dog, doesn't it?), so we've decided to present Wile E. with honorary membership into the "Coolest Canine Cartoons Club" for his dogged determination in pursuing his old nemesis the Road-Runner. Sure, Coyote's schemes to catch Road-Runner never panned out, but you can't keep a good dog down!
