Quick Draw McGraw, or just Quick Draw, is a fictional anthropomorphic horse and the main protagonist and title character of The Quick Draw McGraw Show. He is depicted as wearing red cowboy hat and blue cowboy scarf. He was voiced by Daws Butler.

Quick Draw was usually depicted as a sheriff in a series of short films set in the Arizona Territory of the Old West. Quick Draw was often accompanied by his deputy, a Mexican burro called Baba Looey (also voiced by Butler) who spoke English with a Mexican accent. In the Spanish American version, Quick Draw (Tiro Loco McGraw) speaks in a very English-influenced accent, and Baba Looey (Pepe Trueno, or Pepe Luis in some episodes) speaks in a very Mexican accent, so it was clear that Quick Draw was the alien, and there was no need to adapt any feature of the story. In the Brazilian version, however, Quick Draw speaks in a drawling Portuguese which along with his hispanized name (Pepe Legal) would suggest he was either a Texan-American or Mexican cowboy.

Quick Draw satirized the westerns that were popular among the American public at the time. His character was well-intentioned, but somewhat dim.

Another featured character was Snuffles, the bloodhound dog who would point to his mouth and “ah-ah-ah-” when he wanted a biscuit, then hug himself, leap up in the air, and float back down after having eaten one. In several cases when Quick Draw did not have a dog biscuit to offer, or if he tried to give Snuffles the reward cash for capturing an outlaw, Snuffles would either shake his head and say, “Uh-uh,” or grunt to himself and mumble “Darn cheapskate!” In his first appearance, Bow-Wow Bandit, he was trying to find Quick Draw’s assistant Baba Looey, who was kidnapped by a bandit that thinks that he has a tattoo of a map on his back. He wasn’t called Snuffles, Quick Draw sometimes calls him dog deputy.
