Q.T. Hush featured the adventures of a diminutive private eye and his "private nose" bloodhound, Shamus. Q.T. and Shamus combined forces to solve
baffling crimes and mysteries in this series of cliff-hanging animated
Q. T. Hush had a love/hate relationship with Police Chief Muldoon, and assisted him in jailing criminals by
transforming himself into a cigar smoking shadow named Quincy, who operated independently
of Q. T. in tracking down clues.
Featured criminals included the Scavenger Hill
Mob; kidnappers Yo Yo and Ping Pong; Baffles, an elusive international jewel
thief; racketeers Al Cologne, a hood, and his henchman, Looie; Professor Zappo
and his stooge, Gootch; Dr. Tickle, a magician who turned into the evil Mr.
Snide when he drank Meany-Mix; and One Ton, an Oriental art thief.
Q. T. Hush premiered in syndication on September 24, 1960. The 100 three-and-a-half-minute cartoons were produced by
Max and Arthur Alexander for
Animation Associates and was distributed by National Telefilm Associates. The
cartoons originally aired on stations such as WABC-TV, New York, where they
aired as a half-hour series Monday through Friday at 6:30 PM and again weekday
mornings on The Tommy Seven Show hosted by Ed Bakey and featuring other cartoons
such as Courageous Cat and Minute Mouse. WGN-TV, in Chicago, used them as
filler on their locally-hosted Dick Tracy cartoon show with Ray Rayner.
