Buford and the Galloping Ghost is a 30-minute Saturday morning animated series produced by Hanna-Barbera Productions, which aired on NBC from 3 February to 1 September 1979. It contained the 15-minute segments, The Buford Files and The Galloping Ghost.

The Buford Files and The Galloping Ghost originally aired as separate segments on Yogi's Space Race from 9 September 1978 to 27 January 1979 on NBC. After the cancellation of Yogi's Space Race, both segments were repackaged as one half-hour show.

Buford and the Galloping Ghost has been rebroadcast in reruns on USA Cartoon Express, Cartoon Network and Boomerang.

The Buford Files

Buford is a smart but sleepy bloodhound who lives deep in the murky swamp county of Fenokee. He teams up with two teenagers, Cindy Mae and her older brother Woody, and the trio solves confusing mysteries that baffle Sheriff Muletrain Pettigrew and his overeager but dimwitted deputy Goofer McGee. Buford's abilities are expanded with ears that revolve like radar dishes, and his nose responds to clues like a Geiger counter; he also howls his heart out when the moon comes out and has a running feud with a brown raccoon.


The Galloping Ghost

Nugget Nose is a short and feisty ghost prospector who finds adventure riding his invisible horse and is also a guardian to Wendy and Rita, two cowgirls who work at the Fuddy Dude Ranch whose owner is grouchy old Fenwick Fuddy. Nugget is always battling Fuddy and takes delight in harassing him in odd and humorous ways. Whenever the girls are in trouble, Wendy summons Nugget Nose by rubbing on her special nugget necklace.

(The show's title was loosely based on the nickname of Harold "Red" Grange, a football star at the University of Illinois in the mid-1920s.)
