Top 5 Famous Cartoon Dogs

It’s not just real dogs that we like at While an in-the-flesh pooch is our favourite, there’s a great deal to be said for cartoon canines and there are so many to choose from. From Huckleberry Hound’s polite and gentle humour, to the antics of Santa’s Little Helper on the Simpsons, there are a multitude of cartoon dogs out there to enjoy and laugh along with. When we were asked to pick our favourite dog cartoons, we decided to put together the following list (after quite a bit of arguing in the office). So here are our top 5 famous cartoon dogs, in no particular order…

1. Scooby Doo

Scooby and the gang have been solving mysteries for decades now, starting all the way back in 1969’s Scooby Doo, Where Are You? Alongside his owner, Shaggy, their friends Fred, Velma and Daphne, and occasionally Scooby’s nephew, the ever plucky Scrappy Doo, the team have pulled the masks of many spooky villains since then. Scooby may be a coward at heart, but he’ll do anything for those Scooby Snacks, and often finds his courage (or stumbles into it) exactly when he needs to.

2. Snoopy


No list of famous cartoon dogs could leave out Snoopy who has been around for even longer than Scooby – starting off his life in the Peanuts comic strip in 1950 before quickly becoming the star of the show. Charlie Brown’s hound can most often be found lazing on top of his dog house with his pal Woodstock, but occasionally likes to don his flight goggles and scarf and take to the skies while still atop that same dog house. As cartoon dog legends go, he’s hard to beat.
