The show's premise involved a professional football quarterback named Ed Huddles (voiced by Cliff Norton) and his neighbor, the team's center, Bubba McCoy (voiced by Mel Blanc). They played for a team called the Rhinos.
Other characters included Ed's wife, Marge Huddles (voiced by Jean Vander Pyl); their acerbic neighbor, Claude Pertwee (voiced by Paul Lynde), who tended to refer to Ed and Bubba as "savages" (Pertwee's only friend is a spoiled cat named Beverly); their teammate Freight Train (voiced by Herb Jeffries), and their daughter, Pom-Pom. Alan Reed had a recurring role as Mad Dog Mahoney, the Rhinos' coach. The Huddles had a dog named Fumbles, voiced by Don Messick.
This series reused both voice talent and plots from The Flintstones, as Bubba, Marge and Mad Dog.

End Credits Stills
A pilot animatic for Where's Huddles? (YouTube video) has a few differences from the series:
- The title still, made up of cards held by the football spectators, includes a question mark.
- Penny McCoy is a brunette, rather than a blonde.
- The Rhinos' coach is not named. He is voiced by Joe Besser rather than Alan Reed.
Appearances in other series
