I remember the cartoon.  I'm thinking the dog's name was Mutley but
I think that was from a later cartoon where the dog looked the same.
 (Dog must have a good agent. :-) )  I think that was from Tom Slick
and super chicken where they had an ongoing car race which was kind
of like it's a mad, mad mad mad world, the movie.
It's not Mutley because Mutley had a wheezing laugh.  It's funny because
I don't remember anything else about the cartoon other than the dog
hugging himself and floating in the air after getting a snack.  I
can't even remember why he was given a snack.  No doubt the dog was
not a method actor! :-)
