Heavens to Murgatroyd! Snagglepuss wasn't really heroic, just opportunistic. Convienent, even!
Basing his voice on Bert Lahr ("The Wizard of Oz"), Daws Butler presented Snagglepuss as a hammy actor in one story, or at least a fan of the arts, given that one of his pet phrases is "Exit.....stage left!". In other cases, such as 1960's "Lion's Share Sheriff", Snag just walks right into a situation and adapts quickly, as the outlaw known as the Rain Dance Kid (Mel Blanc) finds out to his dismay. Oh, the horror!
Unfortunately, the video has been deleted. If/when it returns, we'll bring it back.
Butler, of course, would recycle his Snagglepuss voice 11 years later for The Funky Phantom, but Snag would return in Yogi's Gang soon after that.
