Hokey Wolf is an animated series, produced by Hanna-Barbera Productions, that was created to replace the Yogi Bear segment for the third season of The Huckleberry Hound Show. Hokey Wolf stayed with The Huckleberry Hound Show for its final two seasons, from September 11, 1960 to December 1, 1961, for a total of 28 episodes.

In 1992 the series began airing in reruns on Cartoon Network and in 2001 the series moved to Cartoon Network's sister channel Boomerang.


The initial creation of Hokey Wolf occurred when another follow-up segment was needed for the series, because Yogi Bear's rising popularity in preceding appearances warranted a promotion to his own self-titled show. As a result of the change in schedule, Hokey Wolf made its debut in the premiere of the third season of The Huckleberry Hound Show on September 11, 1960 and became a regular segment.

The segment follows the everyday misadventures of its main protagonist, Hokey Wolf, and his young companion, Ding-A-Ling, as they go through their typical con-artist routines of getting what they need in their daily lives. Through each episode, Hokey would usually try to fool farmers and other antagonists with food-stealing schemes and/or finding a place to stay without cost, only for most of these tricks to back-fire on him in one way or another.


Hokey Wolf - Hokey Wolf (voiced by Daws Butler impersonating Phil Silvers) is the smooth-talking title character. His main hobby in life is to outsmart and coax the clueless out of free meals or places to stay, much of which he seems to do with ease, despite the possible consequences. Hokey typically wears his trademark green bow tie with white collar and a violet-colored hat.

Ding-A-Ling - Ding-A-Ling Wolf (voiced by Doug Young impersonating Buddy Hackett) is the younger sidekick to Hokey Wolf who accompanies him through all of his misadventures. He is usually eager to follow in Hokey's ambitious con-artist footsteps, but often reconsiders the plans Hokey comes up with. Ding typically wears a bowler hat (sometimes red, sometimes black), a sleeveless green shirt, and a black vest.
