If I didn’t mention it before, cartoons *count* in the TV Single Dad universe. “Augie Doggie” was a supporting made-specifically-for-this-show cartoon under the “Quick Draw McGraw” umbrella.

Doggie Daddy, a blue beagle or some kind of hound (with a voice like Jimmy Durante), is the ambitious father of a precocious Augie Doggie. In this show, the son is waay smarter than the Dad, and certain predictable cartoon hijinks ensue.

A tug of the Benton Quest Memorial Beard goes to Shaul Ceder (ceder@netvision.net.il) for pointing out the Single Dad status of Doggie Daddy. Thanks, Shaul!

Does Augie have a mommy? If you know, E-mail me.
