Episode 90: The Silver Age of Hanna-Barbera

The Roman Holidays

Hanna-Barbera’s OTHER out-of-time family comedy.

Tonight’s episode is dedicated to the Hanna-Barbera explosion of the 70s. Hanna-Barbera’s output ballooned exponentially during this period. They became the undisputed kings of Saturday morning. There is so much content from this era that it alone was enough to fuel the early days of Cartoon Network and later Boomerang.

Joining us tonight is the always delightful Kittyhawk, artist and writer of Sparkling Gneration Valkyrie Yuuki. For seventy minutes, the three of us sit and compare notes from our favorite cartoons from this era. There is so much that we each brought stuff to the table that nobody else had heard of.

We talk about:
The All-New…
Cartoons based on sitcoms
Wait Till Your Father Gets Home
The Roman Holidays
Blue Falcon & Dynomutt
Speed Buggy
All-Star Laff-A-Lympics
Help! It’s The Hair Bear Bunch!
The Pebbles & Bamm-Bamm Show/The Flinstone Comedy Hour
Captain Caveman & The Teen Angels
Robonic Stooges
and Godzookiiiiiii


You jumped over some of my buses!

Wheelie & The Chopper Bunch

No wonder Kittyhawk calls this the drug era.

Partridge Family 2200 AD

Hmm… This setting looks familiar!

All-Star Laff-A-Lympics

Well, at least Hanna-Barbera kept its star roster active. Even if it was in the Laff-A-Lympics.

Wait Till Your Father Gets Home

I don’t even remember this episode.
