The famous star dog cartoon from the late 80s and early 90s created by Tex Avery. The dog was shown as lazy but man could he outsmart his enemies! His wits were mind-blowing. Although Droopy was a serious kind of dog this animated dog had the hearts of every 90s kid back then. 

He was super adorable; would make you laugh and the quiet nature of this dog had us fall in love with the character. 

If you are thinking about the dog breed type then Droopy was a Basset hound. Originally the breed is supposed to be one of the hunting dog breeds but the cartoon had given a plethora of character to this paw pal.

The time at Cartoon Network when Eugine and her dog, a Beagle, Courage, would face all the monsters in their upside world used to be a fun watch.

One of the earliest of Disney’s marvel was the character of Mickey Mouse, a rat. Later on, in the cartoon series, he had a dog pal, a bloodhound, named Pluto. Originally the dog character appeared in The Picnic (1930) as Minnie’s dog named Rover but soon the canine proportions were changed. 

The cheerful and adventurous soul of Pluto made great headlines in the world where animals usually were seen speaking dialogues. If you want to see the dog-worthy antics, then you cannot miss watching the Mickey Mouse cartoon with Pluto.

  • Snoopy 

Did you know Snoopy was also named Sniffy? If it wasn’t for Charles Schulz, the original creator, the comic strip would have gone by the name Sniffy. 

Good thing the name changed. Snoopy sounds so better. 

If you pick this cartoon as your favorite most dog cartoon, then no surprise there. Undoubtedly one of the best cartoon dogs of all the time, we love Snoopy. The Beagle had catered all the attention with the exploration, being good natures, and all the good qualities kids love seeing in a dog.

I believe he is the only dog to travel on space exploration! Of course, it’s the cartoon but hey no dog has precedence over him so far.

  • Odie 

Garfield was a pretty popular character of the bossy and lazy cat who came with the victim and best friend dog named Odie. although he was not such a clever dog sure was an adorable one. 

According to the cartoon he was adopted by Garfiel’s owner. 

A lost dog with no family is surely a heartbreaking point but let’s not overlook the fact that despite being an unwanted dog he was simple and kind-hearted too. He may act stupid at times but did outsmart Garfield even in certain situations.
