Willoughby is a hound dog created and voiced by Tex Avery for the 1940 cartoon, Of Fox and Hounds. Willoughby is characterized by his below-average intelligence and overall gullibility. Willoughby later appears in other Warner Bros. animated shorts, including The Heckling Hare (1941), The Crackpot Quail, Nutty News (as the lead dog of a fox hunting party), The Hep Cat — as Rosebud (1942), An Itch in Time - as Elmer Fudd's dog Rover(1943) and Hare Force — as Sylvester the Dog (1944). Willoughby first appeared with brown-and-white fur in 1940, then redesigned with brown fur only in 1941. By 1943 the character was redesigned slightly. Marvin the Martian's dog, K-9, has many physical resemblances to Willoughby. According to Chuck Jones, the character was based on Lennie, from Of Mice and Men (1937).
