Muggy-Doo is a funny-animal character created by Hal Seeger; originally appearing in comic books, this character soon went on to animated cartoons, but didn’t last long in either venue.



Muggy-Doo started out as the star of a 1953 comic from Stanhall Publishing entitled Muggy-Doo, Boy Cat. He was a screwball character who bought and sold junk for a living, and who always wore a loose-fitting yellow T-shirt, the front of which had writing that kept changing to fit his situation (in the style of The Yellow Kid). The comic also included stories starring other characters, such as Elmer the Elk, Orry the Orangutan, and the porcine Stuffy Derma. Also featured was a fez-wearing hound named Osh, who acted as a foil for Muggy but also appeared in solo stories.

The title lasted only four issues, but at least two of them were reprinted in 1963 by I.W. Publications, under their “Super Comics” label.


In 1963, Muggy-Doo appeared in two animated cartoons: *Muggy-Doo Boy Cat *Boy Pest with Osh

In 1965, the character was changed considerably — he was now a “boy fox” instead of a cat, and more con artist than screwball — and appeared in six cartoons as part of The Milton the Monster Show (which was another Hal Seeger creation): *Crumb Bumming *You Auto Be in Pictures *Gogh Van Gogh *Muggy Doo or Die *From Rags to Riches *Fortune Kooky
