"From the creators of Tom and Jerry, brought you this studio for all the wonderful cartoons."

Hanna-Barbera Productions was an animation studio that impacted and dominated television since it was founded in 1957 by William Hanna, Joseph Barbera and George Sidney.

Why It Rocks

  1. William Hanna and Joseph Barbera, who both worked together for the Tom and Jerry theatrical shorts, was hugely successful to have founded this animation studio alongside George Sidney.
  2. Great shows for the franchises, like The Flintstones, Yogi Bear, The Jetsons, Jonny Quest, Wacky Races, The Smurfs, Space Ghost and Scooby-Doo, Where Are You!. Ruff and Reddy was the first series made by the company.
  3. Great memorable characters from other shows, like Fred Flintstone, Barney Rubble, Yogi Bear, Boo-Boo Bear, Ranger Smith, George Jetson, Scooby-Doo, Shaggy Rogers, Fred Jones, Daphne Blake, and Velma Dinkley.
  4. Some of the shows use laugh tracks for every episodes, which is entertaining.
  5. It is officially considered the very first major animation studio to successfully produce cartoons exclusively for television.
  6. It spawned films, books, toys, and all manner of other media becoming virtually ubiquitous as cultural icons.
  7. The company was also produced some shows that were based off on DC Comics, like Super Friends and The World's Greatest Super Friends.
  8. It was later sent to other stations which was owned by Turner Broadcasting System, such as Cartoon Network, Boomerang, TNT, TBS, and Adult Swim.
  9. Speaking of which, some of the shows on Cartoon Network, like What a Cartoon!, Dexter's Laboratory, Johnny Bravo, Cow & Chicken, I Am Weasel, and The Powerpuff Girls were made by the studio during the 90s.
  10. Since the studio was absorbed into their parent company Warner Bros. Animation or their own company Cartoon Network Studios, Hanna-Barbera can now do a revival company used to market properties and productions associated with the studio's "classic" works.
  11. It's overseas animation units for many shows like Toei Animation, Rough Draft Korea, Sunwoo Entertainment, etc.
  12. It's wide range of iconic cartoony sound effects (a.k.a. Hanna-Barbera SFX) which became widely used in various media to this day.

Bad Qualities

  1. Some of the shows were either bad or mediocre, such as The Tom and Jerry Show (1975) and Yo Yogi! (1991).
  2. The theatrical film adaptations such as Tom and Jerry: The Movie (1992), The Flintstones (1994), Scooby-Doo (2002), Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed (2004), and Yogi Bear (2010) weren't that good either.
  3. They were infamous for doing some bad spin-offs back during the 1970s and 1980s (a.k.a. the Dark Age of American Animation)
  4. They were notorious for constantly recycling elements from their previous works for other works such as plots, character designs, names, and especially animation and music scores.
  5. Their Filipino subsidiary, Fil-Cartoons was very terrible, due to their poor animation they did to other shows like The Ren & Stimpy Show in Season 1, but also for their poor work condition.
  6. They have created some shows that were clones to Scooby-Doo.
