Deputy Dawg was originally a Terrytoons cartoon character featured on the animated television series of the same name from 1959 through 1972. The cartoons were seven minutes long, and were packaged four at a time and shown as a half-hour program in syndication. The show was produced by CBS and was the professional animation debut of Ralph Bakshi (as inbetweener) of Fritz the Cat fame.

The character of Deputy Dawg (a dog) was a deputy sheriff in the Mississippimarker bayous of the United Statesmarker. The other main characters were the 'varmints' Muskie Muskrat, Moley Mole, Possible 'Possum, Ty Coon, Vincent van Gopher, Pig Newton, and Dawg's boss the Sheriff, as well as Mrs. Deputy. Deputy Dawg was voiced by Dayton Allen, a prolific Hollywoodmarker voice actor who voiced many Terrytoons characters in television and theatrical shorts in the 1950s and 1960s.

Much of the comedy was sight gag/action based with some focused around comical accents and stereotypical southern characteristics. Many of the 5 minute storylines involve Deputy Dawg protecting his produce from Muskie and Vince, battling with some of the peculiar locals and trying to please the Sheriff. However, most of the crimes committed by Muskie and Vince weren't treated seriously, and Deputy Dawg was on friendly terms with them most of the time (except when he had to perform his duties as a lawman and keep them from causing trouble). Deputy Dawg would pal around with Muskie and Vince just as often as he would lock them up in the Jailhouse, and the trio would often pal around and engage in their favorite pastime, fishin' for catfish.

The central location for many of the yarns is the Jailhouse.
