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:
Cartoons based on sitcoms
Wait Till Your Father Gets Home
The Roman Holidays
Blue Falcon & Dynomutt
Help! It’s The Hair Bear Bunch!
The Pebbles & Bamm-Bamm Show/The Flinstone Comedy Hour
Captain Caveman & The Teen Angels
