    1939–57: Humble beginnings, theatrical shorts and birth of a TV studio

    Melrose, New Mexico native William Hanna and New York City-born of Italian heritage Joseph Barbera first met while working at the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer cartoon studio in 1939. Their first directorial production and collaboration was the Academy Award-nominated Puss Gets the Boot (1940), which served as the basis for the popular Tom and Jerry series of short subject theatricals. Hanna and Barbera served as directors of the shorts for over 20 years, with Hanna in charge of supervising the animati...

    1957–69: Success with television cartoons

    H-B Enterprises was one of the first American cartoon studios to successfully produce cartoons specifically for TV broadcast. Previously, animated programming on TV was primarily of rebroadcasts of theatrical cartoons. Its first original animated TV series, The Ruff and Reddy Show, premiered on NBC in December 1957. Next was the studio's first big hit The Huckleberry Hound Show in 1958, a syndicated animated series aired in most markets just before primetime. A ratings success, it introduced...

    1970–79: New cartoons and live action ventures

    Hanna and Barbera and their studio had rapidly controlled over 80% of children's programming for television at the start of 1970s and secured the top three Saturday morning ratings as well, making them the world's biggest and largest animation company in the business. On the horizon, Hanna-Barbera produced and unleashed a steady stream of further new shows for primetime, fresh cartoons for Saturday mornings, programs featuring mystery-solving, crime-fighting teenagers with comical pets and or...

    Hanna-Barbera released its early VHS titles through Worldvision Home Video. During the shakeup at then owner Taft, which was transformed into Great American Communications, Worldvision was sold off. Accordingly, the animation company got its own home video line Hanna-Barbera Home Video, which lasted until 1991, when Turner bought the studio and subsequently put the video line on moratorium. Thereafter, all Hanna-Barbera titles were distributed by Turner Home Entertainment. Then following the merger between Turner and Time Warner, Warner Home Video would handle the home video releases of the cartoons and later by Warner Archive. DC Comics announced a comic book initiative titled Hanna-Barbera Beyond, to re-imagine some of the company's classic cartoons into some darker and edgier settings. The first comic books on the line are Future Quest, Scooby Apocalypse, The Flintstones and Wacky Raceland. New titles arrived in March 2017 crossing over with the DC Universe. On June 29, Warner Br...

    Besides its famous cartoon shows and characters, Hanna-Barbera was also noted for their large library of sound effects. Besides cartoon-style sound effects (such as ricochets, slide whistles, etc.), they also had familiar sounds used for transportation, household items and more. When Hanna and Barbera started their studio in 1957, they created a handful of sound effects, and had limited choices. They also took some sounds from the then-defunct Metro-Goldwyn Mayer animation studio and from various cartoon/movie studios like Universal Pictures, Warner Bros. Animation, and Walt Disney Productions. By 1958, they began to expand and added more sound effects to their library. Some of their famous sound effects included a rapid bongo drum take used for when a character's feet were scrambling before taking off, a "KaBONG" sound produced on a guitar for when Quick Draw McGraw, in his Zorro-style "El Kabong" crime fighting guise, would smash a guitar over a villain's head, the sound of a car'...

    Hanna Barbera released these "made to order" DVD's on their website. I think it's a little pricy, considering there was no fancy menu options or any kind of extras. But I'm just so glad to have these episodes on DVD- they never seem to show any real good cartoons on Cartoon Network and I don't have Boomerang- which is where it was shown last I ...

    I always try to get any of the Hanna-Barbera titles I'm interested in early so as to preferably get pressed discs rather than burnt. I live in the UK so being unable to order directly off Warner's website to guarantee this, I usually purchase sets from eBay, etc.

  10. Next Hanna-Barbera set? | Home Theater Forum

    www.hometheaterforum.com/community/threads/next...

    The Smurfs is an 80s cartoon so technically the releases from this 'Diamond Collection' span from 50s-80s NOT 50s-70s. The Smurfs Season 1 is even listed in the list of titles contained in the PR. IT looks like whomever wrote this press release doesn't know every much about the Hanna-Barbera properties.
