Hugh Tazmanian Devil is a character in Taz-Mania. Voiced by Maurice LaMarche, his first appearance was in the premiere episode, "The Dog the Turtle Story" which originally aired 7 Sep 1991.


Hugh is Taz's father. In many cases he is meant to be a parody of Bing Crosby and Bob Hope.

Hugh likes orange juice and playing golf. Crosby was a famous pitchman for orange juice, while Hope would perform stand-up comedy in golf attire. Hope and Crosby appeared together as a popular duo in many comedy films of the 1940s and 1950s. Hugh's voice typically sounds like Crosby and he will often resort to saying "blah blah blah, yackity schmakity" to speed up his long-winded (often cliche) speeches.

He is married to Jean, and besides Taz they have two other children, Molly and Jake.
