Glen Quagmire inspired by Hogan?

Last night, I watched a few minutes of 1963 comedy Under the Yum Yum Tree. Jack Lemmon plays the lead character, Hogan. Like Family Guy's Quagmire, Hogan is an unrepentant lech who pursues sex with a sophisticated amoral single-mindedness. Also like Quagmire, Hogan has ample means to pursue his libidinous passions and his home is customized as a hidden lothario's den that reveals itself with the flip of a few switches. However, where Quagmire is likeable with a good heart, Hogan is entirely unsympathetic, devious, and despicable.

I would not be surprised if Seth MacFarlane admitted Quagmire is based on Hogan.
