Huckleberry Hound Book

Huckleberry Hound: Giant Story Book from Whitman Publishing is a book i’ve tried to track down for 20 years. Then suddenly on Flickr I came across it. This great nostalgic book is quite a collectable as it dates back to 1961.
The book is full of all the Hanna-Barbera’s cartoons. Unfortunately its all in monotone colour and for a kid that was always a disappointment. If you love Hanna-Barbera’s The Huckleberry Hound Show you will love this book.

Hanna-Barbera Huckleberry Hound Book

A recent one on ebay remarkably went for just a few pounds.That listing is for a 1961 Hanna-Barbera Huckleberry Hound Giant Story Book in Hardcover. The book had 190 pages and appeared to have had some of the back pages missing. There was some yellowing/browning of the pages and definite binding issues. But even so good value in my mind.

The interior artwork is illustrated by Frank McSavage who does a great job with H-B’s character designs. Here are some examples of the illustrations that are found through-out the book.The 192 page book is also a fun, retro read since a lot of the classic cartoon action, violence and sterotypes are still intact as you read it.

Stories include

  1. Operation Spud
  2. No Picnic
  3. The Noisy little indian
  4. Yogi and the 3 little pigs
