    Literally everything they ever made is better than everything that's aired on Cartoon Network in the past 5 years. Even the really awful crap like Yo Yogi and Fantastic Max.

    Just about everything they made up to and including Top cat was good
    And then the majority of their stuff in the 90s (including the early Cartoon Cartoons) were really great

    They made the one Fantastic Four adaptation that hasn't been or wanted people to wish it was memory holed.

      Yep. Even the 90s cartoon failed to live up to the H-B version. And the 90s were when all the best shit was made.

      Ironically, it's the most likely to be memory-holed because it's still owned by Warner Bros, who hasn't released it on DVD or aired it since Disney bought Marvel.

      I'm hoping it'll air on MeTV Toons eventually, but we'll see.

    Most of it was good; they just overcommitted themselves to a few bad concepts.

      They never really died either, they just became Cartoon Network studios and then merged into Warner animation.

    What's up with this contrarianism towards HB? Yes, they were cheap, but their shows were entertaining. Plus, they created fricking Tom and Jerry.

      I could see why people miiight turn their nose up at them in the mid 90s when the stuff Warner and Disney was putting out was putting their old stuff to shame, at least budget wise. But these days cartoons look just as shoddy as old H-B cartoons did, only they don't have great golden age artists working on them like the old H-B cartoons did.

      It's a bunch of morons that are just parroting what other people have said in the past. I doubt any of them have actually watched the shows.

      Idk what's going on but we're getting a lot of this and idiots who hate "ugly" looking cartoons.

    A lot of their earlier stuff up to the early-70's are definitely enjoyable and most of their 90's stuff holds up greatly.

    For whatever's in between, eh. I'd argue there's some gems like Hong Kong Phooey and Snorks but otherwise, it was kind of a slump carried by Scooby and Smurfs.

    Yeah but not until the 90s. Even as a kid I recognized The Flintstones, The Jetsons, Yogi, and the original Scooby were boring slop.

    Their classic stuff (pre Scooby Doo) was great. Their modern, post-mid-80s output was solid.
    Remember they basically made the early Cartoon Network classics like Dexter's Lab, PPG, Johnny Bravo, etc.

    The shitty HB era was from 1969-1984 (Scooby clones, etc) Even then they had some hits like Wait Til Your Father Gets Home and Heidi's Song

    Thank you for saying it.
    I hated every single one of their shows because of the extremely ugly color palette and the laugh track.
    It felt like I was watching "old" dry.
    I never once laughed.
    I was never once entertained.
    Scooby-Doo fricking sucks. Le run around, le pull off mask. Retch. Booooooo!

    All of that said. Harvey Birdman Attorney at Law is solid gold.

    One thing I've noticed in watching Hanna-Barbera stuff is they really did have strong voice acting. Right from the beginning when they had Daws Butler and Don Messick, but as they expanded they not only had a lot of memorable voices but the acting was always pretty good even in the doldrums of the '70s and '80s, when the actors kept up their energy even when the material failed them.

    One of my favorite factoids is that their voice director for most of this period, Gordon Hunt (who mentored Andrea Romano at H-B) left because his daughter Helen Hunt got him a job directing episodes of her sitcom "Mad About You."

    Most people think their early TV cartoons are their best, when they poached Michael Maltese and Warren Foster from Warners to do their writing and were still concentrating on seven-minute shorts.

    As I recall the one that I'd recommend the most is the one that has never been released on home video for some reason. Quick Draw McGraw was entirely written by Maltese and the characters of Quick Draw and Baba Looey are pretty openly based on Daffy Duck and Porky Pig in the cartoon where Daffy was an idiot Western sheriff, so it's like a cheaper version of the Daffy/Porky Western series we deserved.

      By the mid-60s they were mostly making crap and they knew it, but they did whatever the network executives wanted, which eventually led to them doing almost nothing but Scooby-Doo clones for years.
