Huckleberry Hound

The biggest show in town is Huckleberry Hound
For all you guys and gals.
The biggest clown in town is Huckleberry Hound
With all his cartoon pals.

It’s Huckleberry fun, it’s for everyone,
So come on, gather ’round.
Get yourself all set,
Turn on your TV set
For Huckleberry Hound.

That oh, so merry, Chuckleberry,
Huckleberry Hound.
