A Pup and his Pop

Augie Doggie and Doggie Daddy are Hanna-Barbera cartoon characters who debuted on The Quick Draw McGraw Show and appeared in their own segment of that show.

The segments centered around the misadventures of a father-and-son team. Doggie Daddy, a dog who spoke like entertainer Jimmy Durante, tried to do the best he could at raising his rambunctious son, Augie. 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!"
