Snooper and Blabber is a Hanna-Barbera cartoon series which debuted in 1959 as a segment of The Quick Draw McGraw Show. The series was previously aired on Cartoon Network, and Cartoon Network's sister channel, Boomerang.
Starring a detective cat named Super Snooper (voiced by Daws Butler impersonating Ed Gardner) and his sidekick Blabber Mouse (also voiced by Daws Butler). Super Snooper is more or less the one in command whenever the pair takes on a case, while Blabber Mouse (his name being a play on “blabbermouth”) follows whatever orders Snooper gives him. Snooper’s voice was patterned after Ed Gardner’s Archie on the 1940s radio show Duffy’s Tavern. Blabber speaks with a lisp, hence he calls his partner “Shnooper”. It was one of the rare shows that paired a cat and mouse together that were in no way enemies.
Some of the pair’s cartoons featured early versions of other Hanna-Barbera characters, such as Snagglepuss and Hardy Har Har.
