Specifically, Deputy Dawg, Hector Heathcote and his scholarly dog, Winston, and Sidney elephant. It is a shame these episodes of these series are not printed on DVD. Heathcote episodes are especially hard to find these days. Here is a compilation comparing earlier Deputy Dawg drawing styles with later ones. The original Deputy Dawg's face looks more like a sad hound. The facial expressions are more stern. Note his latter face is plumper and more cheerful. More Pillsbury-Doughboy-like. Who was the artist who drew both of these styles?

Re: My favorite cartoons are: Terry-Toons!!
[In reply to]
There are some episodes where the character designs were more appealing (particularly the gopher and muskrat) than those depicted here. Those particular episodes were, I believe, directed by Ralph Bakshi.
In the first episodes, the stories were somewhat reminiscent of the old MGM "Tom & Jerry" theatrical cartoons; in that DD's boss, the Sherriff, is seen only from the neck down like the "Mammy Two-Shoes" character.
