Background

Hanna-Barbera was originally formed as a division of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer in by Tom and Jerry creators and directors; William "Bill" Hanna & Joseph "Joe" Barbera and live-action director George Sidney as "H-B Enterprises" in order to produce sponsored films and later television commercials. In , Bill and Joe later became the co-heads of the MGM animation department after producer Fred Quimby retired. After MGM shut down its animation studio in , H-B Enterprises became Hanna and Barbera's full-time job. The same year, H-B struck a deal with Columbia Pictures Corporation to syndicate the cartoons on television in conjunction with Columbia's television division Screen Gems until and co-produced several cartoons in the early s until and by Columbia Pictures Television from After API acquired Hanna-Barbera Productions in , It opens the Australian animation division in Sydney named "Hanna-Barbera Pty, Ltd." Then switched to Southern Star until closed in

The company was renamed to "Hanna-Barbera Productions" in and was later acquired by Taft Broadcasting in ; Taft was later renamed to Great American Broadcasting in after a buyout; it would then be renamed to Citicasters in before finally being absorbed into Jacor Communications in , who in turn was acquired by ClearChannel Communications (now iHeart Media) in In , the studio was purchased by Turner Broadcasting, initially with help from the Apollo Investment Group. Bill Hanna and Joe Barbera both went into semi-retirement, yet continued to serve as ceremonial figureheads for the studio. The same year, the company was renamed to "H-B Production Co." and renamed again as "Hanna-Barbera Cartoons, Inc." in

In , Turner launched the Cartoon Network, which had been built around reruns from the Hanna-Barbera and the Turner Entertainment Co. cartoon libraries (pre MGM, pre WB, and Associated Artists Productions cartoons.). The same year in , Turner turned Hanna-Barbera towards primarily producing new material for its Cartoon Network when Cartoon Network Studios was organized as a division of Hanna-Barbera Cartoons, Inc.

On October 10, , Turner was bought out by Time Warner (now "WarnerMedia"). With William Hanna's death in , Hanna-Barbera was folded into Warner Bros. Animation, and Cartoon Network Studios became a separate company and assumed production of Cartoon Network's output. Joe Barbera remained with Warner Bros. Animation until his death in

Today, Hanna-Barbera still survives as an in-name-only unit of Warner Bros. Animation for distribution and marketing of properties and productions associated with Hanna-Barbera's "classic" works. However, not all cartoons co-produced by Hanna-Barbera are owned by WarnerMedia such as the following: Jeannie and The Partridge Family A.D. (Sony Pictures Television), The Fonz and the Happy Days Gang, Laverne & Shirley in the Army, Amigo and Friends, The Little Rascals: The Animated Series, and the Harlem Globetrotters cartoon (CBS Studios/CBS Media Ventures), Gravedale High (NBCUniversal Television), Capitol Critters (20th Century Fox Television/20th Television and later Disney Platform Distribution), Pink Panther and Sons, The Adventures of Sinbad Jr., and Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventures (first season co-produced by H-B and the second season was co-produced by DIC & MGM Television), and most of the theatrical library. Warner Bros. has no rights whatsoever to any of these series listed.

Nickname: "The H-B Boxes"

Logo: Over a yellow background sit two boxes, one red and one blue, joined together unevenly. There's an "H" in the red box and a "B" in the blue box. The text appears as "an HB PRODUCTION".

Variants:

  • On later shows, the background is dark green, the "H" box is lavender, and the "B" box is red. The text appears as "AN HB ENTERPRISES CARTOON". Sometimes the letters appear smaller.
  • An extremely rare variant of the original variant has the H-B Boxes, but the text is extended out to read "Hanna-Barbera".

FX/SFX: None.

Music/Sounds: The opening theme of the cartoon.

Availability: Rare.

  • The original variant only appeared on The Ruff & Reddy Show. It is intact on home media releases of the series.
  • The later variant is more common however. It can be seen on early episodes of Yogi Bear, Pixie & Dixie and Mr. Jinks, Huckleberry Hound, and the Quick Draw McGraw short "Scary Prairie" among other shorts.

Editor's Note: A fairly simple, but a fine start for Hanna-Barbera.

Logo: It's only in-credit text saying “A HANNA-BARBERA PRODUCTION”, either at the beginning of a short or at the end of a show. This practice continued well into , years after H-B introduced an in-credit logo for its shows.

Trivia: The right half of the logo of "A Hanna-Barbera Production" became the logo for the US version of the Boomerang network from April 1, until January 19, (international versions used this logo).

Variants: While the style of the wording varied from show to show, here are the variants below:

  • “HANNA-BARBERA” is in a “scrawly” font used for crediting the two producers on latter-day MGM shorts and many of the original H-B Productions series. Used mainly on early shorts, in a pale turquoise (or electric blue) “splotch” on a yellow (or pink) background. The font would vary on some H-B shorts of the era.
  • “Hanna-Barbera” is in a '60s-esque “cursive” font commonly known as “Tabitha”. Used within a similar “splotch” device, but is also seen at the end of several s series such as The Jetsons and Top Cat.
  • The entire wording is in a bold, all-caps font, usually Franklin Gothic Condensed. Seen at the end of many s series, most notably Jonny Quest, The Flintstones, Atom Ant, and Secret Squirrel.
  • “HANNA-BARBERA” is in a bold, “tubular” font most similar to the latter-day Filmways logo. it's usually seen on series. The last new shows to use this variation of "HANNA-BARBERA" were season 1 of Pound Puppies, the version of Jonny Quest, and season 1 of The Flintstone Kids, among shows.
  • On some s cartoons such as Birdman and Space Ghost, the text said "A HANNA-BARBERA CARTOON" at the end of some episodes, but seen at the end of every end-title credits.
  • On the first season of the short-lived series Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventures, there's in-credit text that reads as "Produced by Hanna Barbera Productions, Inc. in association with Orion Television Entertainment and Nelson Entertainment" with a copyright stamp to Orion Television Entertainment and Nelson Films, Inc. below.
  • There is also a small rectangle or square with a caricature sketch of the characters inside that accompanies the copyright with the in-credit logo on most shows. This practice began in the late s and would last until on most shows.
  • On Lucky Luke, the text is chyroned onto the background with a Taft byline as well as in-credit listings for Gaumont and FR3.
  • During the credits roll of the ABC Saturday Morning Pac Preview Party, there's an in-credit notice for "HANNA-BARBERA PRODUCTIONS" with the Taft byline under it.

FX/SFX: None.

Music/Sounds: The opening or closing theme of the cartoon.

Availability: Very common. It's still preserved on all H-B shows from , as it’s in the credits.

3rd Logo (February 26, September 7, )

  • Hanna-Barbera Productions () 'Jack and the Beanstalk'.png
  • Hanna Barbera(59).jpg

Nicknames: "The H-B Box", "Zooming Out/Fading In H-B Box", "H-B Box of Doom"

Logo: On a black background, three small orange rectangles appear, the outer two stretching down, the one in the center extending up, then they stretch, break up and multiply to become an orange box containing a large, black stylized “HB” cutout. Then, the box grows to become an orange background, the black HB zooms out, disappears, and then it cuts to black words reading “a hanna-barbera production” with the “a” in a black box (supposedly formed from the black HB, since it zooms out to that spot). Finally, a yellow stylized “HB” (using the same style as the black one) slowly fades in.

Later Variant: There’s another version from featuring nearly the same starting animation, with the rectangles moving the directions they’re supposed to extend instead of stretching before they actually do, but when the black zooming “HB” disappears (it doesn't move off its path), it cuts to a red “HB” with the text already on it in blue, with the small “a” box colored dark blue and the letter in yellow. It features a byline reading “a division of Taft Broadcasting Company” next to a small Taft logo in dark blue text on the bottom.

FX/SFX: The rectangles appearing and forming the H-B logo, the zoom-out.

Music/Sounds: It features four glockenspiel notes and then three brass-band/accordion notes mixed with three glockenspiel chimes.

Availability: Near extinction. The mid-'60s version is still kept on its only use, the NBC live action/animated special Jack and the Beanstalk, whenever someone decides to show it but it's still retained on VHS prints and the DVD from Warner Archive. The version is only seen on the live action/animated TV series The New Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, and is preserved on the DVD set from Warner Archive. This logo is not intact on the Boomerang streaming print of Jack and the Beanstalk.

Editor's Note: This logo seems pretty advanced for , but it's rather primitive and abrupt for Hanna-Barbera's first animated production logo. Though for a company that was known for producing limited animation cartoons on tight budgets, it's understandable.

4th Logo (September 7, March 27, , September 10, April 7, )

  • Hanna-Barbera Productions () 1.png
  • Hanna-Barbera Productions () 2.png
  • Hanna-Barbera Productions () 'Scooby-Doo'.png

Nicknames: "The H-B Box II", "The Zooming H-B", "(Zooming-In) H-B Box", "H-B Box of Doom"

Logo: On a black background, a large, stylized orange “HB” begins to zoom right up at the viewer. When it nearly engulfs the screen, the background suddenly becomes yellow-orange and the "HB" turns darker. On top of the “HB”, the words “a”, “hanna-barbera”, and “production” all appear in black, with the "a" contained inside a square the same color as the background.

Trivia: H-B used these and the logos using the box design during this period.

Variants:

  • For a short period, Taft’s corporate logo, alongside a byline reading “a division of Taft Broadcasting Company”, appear. This appears to coincide with the logo being used “standalone”, with its own music. Box logos that are appended to the ends of shows and have the show’s music playing usually do not have the byline. However, there are some exceptions, such as The Thanksgiving That Almost Wasn't, which featured the logo attached to the end of the credits with the end of the show's theme playing under it, but features a Taft logo and byline; and The Funky Phantom and Yogi's Ark Lark, which feature the "standalone" variant of the logo (with its own music), but no Taft logo or byline.
  • Starting in with the release of Scooby-Doo and the Legend of the Vampire, the "Scooby All-Stars" logo was phased out and replaced with a recreation of this logo. The H-B now zooms-in much more smoothly before cutting to the finished logo. This was seen on all made-for-video Scooby-Doo movies, though beginning with Scooby-Doo! Abracadabra Doo, it now simply ends with the Warner Bros. Animation logo, as all made-for-video Scooby-Doo movies were produced at Warner Bros. Animation.

FX/SFX: The “zooming” H-B, and a sudden “jolt” from the black background to the orange background.

Music/Sounds: A whimsical flute/xylophone jingle, ending with a held-out muted trumpet stinger. It was written by then Hanna-Barbera musical director Ted Nichols, used only when the logo wasn’t attached to the end of the show and had the show’s end credits music playing over it. You can hear this at the end of the Dastardly & Muttley, Penelope Pitstop, and Josie and the Pussycats closing title tracks on the European H-B music CD “Tunes from the Toons: The Best of Hanna-Barbera".

Music/Sounds Variant: On the Boomerang streaming service's print of Yogi's Ark Lark, the version of the Screen Gems "S from Hell" logo music plays under this logo, possibly due to poor editing/plastering.

Availability: Uncommon.

  • It was last seen on most episodes of Wacky Races on Boomerang (it is plastered with the All-Stars "Comedy" logo on the DVD release and the Boomerang streaming service) and the bylineless version was also seen on The Amazing Chan and the Chan Clan, Super Friends, the TV movie Yogi's Ark Lark, The Flintstone Comedy Show, and most episodes of The New Scooby-Doo Movies on DVD (though on the Boomerang streaming service, some episodes have it, others plaster it with the modern Warner Bros. Television logo, and some cut off before the logo appears).
  • The stand-alone variant was also originally seen on The Harlem Globetrotters animated series and season 2 of Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! (the former was retained on TV Land airings in the early 's with the silent Paramount Domestic Television logo following, the latter is available on DVD and Blu-Ray).
  • Some episodes of Josie and the Pussycats have this plastered over with the bylineless version of "Swirling Star" and the "Comedy All Stars" logo on DVD and the Boomerang service.
  • This logo is also seen on the Warner Archive released DVDs of shows such as the two animated series, Speed Buggy and Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kids. This was also recently spotted on The Adventures of Gulliver episode "Little Man of the Year" with the Taft byline.

Editor's Note: Another fairly abrupt Hanna-Barbera logo, and with the animation being more in-your-face, but is still bound to be very memorable to Hanna-Barbera cartoon fans. The remake is smoother, albeit cheap looking, but is strange to see it appear after something not resembling a Hanna-Barbera production (even if it features their characters).

5th Logo (September 13, September 5, , )

  • Hanna-Barbera Productions ().png
  • Hanna-Barbera Productions () 'Where's Huddles'.png

Nicknames: "The H-B Box III", "Multiplying Rectangles"

Logo: It starts off with the formation of the HB box from the 3rd logo (1st variant), but instead of the box zooming out, it turns capri while the background turns red. Then, “a hanna-barbera production” in denim blue and the Taft byline/logo fade in. The “a" in the HB box is on top of a denim blue box with an orange outline.

Variants:

  • There is a rare variant in which the box zooms out instead of fading to the already formed logo, a la the initial version. There is no Taft byline/logo as well. This was seen in Where's Huddles?
  • On Boomerang reruns of the Scooby-Doo episode "Go Away Ghost Ship", the logo is sped up.

FX/SFX: The “multiplying rectangles”.

Music/Sounds: Same as the previous logo.

Music/Sounds Variants:

  • An airing of The Scooby-Doo Show episode "Hang in There Scooby-Doo" on the Australian version of Cartoon Network used the "Swirling Star" music due to an editing error.
  • On Romanian dubbing prints of Dastardly & Muttley in Their Flying Machines, the logo is silent.

Availability: Uncommon.

  • This logo was available on scattered H-B shows as well as the original first season of Scooby-Doo, Where Are You!
  • Prior to , this logo was nearly impossible to find, mainly due to chronic plastering. Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! suffered this as well, first with a blacked out era or sometimes a blacked out era "Swirling Star" logo, then with the "Comedy" variant of the "All-Stars" logo when re-ran on TBS in and finally the “Action” variant of the “All-Stars” logo in
  • This logo can be found on a few Hanna-Barbera DVD box sets, most notably Scooby-Doo, Where Are You!: The Complete First and Second Seasons, which means the logo is now more common than it was prior to the DVD release (it is also preserved on the Blu-Ray release, followed by the modern WB Television logo, but is cut on the Boomerang streaming service's HD prints of the series).
  • This is also spotted on DVD and Boomerang releases of The Perils of Penelope Pitstop, with the WB Television logo playing the theme in low tone following it.
  • This was also originally seen on the short-lived The Cattanooga Cats but was plastered over with the "CGI Swirling Star" logo when it was rerun on Boomerang.
  • It was also seen on Dastardly & Muttley in Their Flying Machines when last rerun on Boomerang, but strangely, the logo has been cut out on the DVD release and the Boomerang streaming service.
  • The variant can be found on the Warner Archive DVD of Where's Huddles, but Boomerang airings plastered this logo with the "CGI Swirling Star" too.
  • Oddly enough, it appeared on a episode of The Scooby-Doo Show, as seen on a USA Network broadcast.

Editor's Note: An improvement over the previous H-B "box" logos, as it's less in-your-face and the animation is smoother, though the blue "H-B" makes the blue text hard to read.

6th Logo (September 7, April 7, )

  •  HB .png
  • Hanna Barbera(64).jpg
  • Hanna Barbera(65).jpg
  • Hanna Barbera(66).jpg

Nickname: "Rainbow H-B"

Logo: We start on a pattern of five columns, each filled with the words “HANNA-BARBERA”. The words are colored so that they form a rainbow pattern. Suddenly, the words start disappearing, from the top starting on the 1st column, and from the bottom starting with the last column. The words disappear until one last “HANNA-BARBERA” is left, which enlarges and “morphs” into a skewed, stylized H-B, filled with a rolling rainbow pattern with numerous “HANNA-BARBERA”s in it. Below, the words “HANNA-BARBERA PRODUCTIONS, INC.” appear.

Trivia: This logo is used on backgrounds of the end titles of The Scooby-Doo Show (blue) and Dynomutt, Dog Wonder (red).

Byline: In , the logo does not enlarge. In this version, a Taft Broadcasting byline, sans logo this time, appears. Some post prints of H-B shows from this particular period have the Taft byline blacked out.

Variants:

  • A rare variant has been seen on only a couple of TV movies of the era, such as the live-action telefilm The Gathering. Mainly nicknamed "Solid Rainbow H-B", it was a still shot with more solid colors (yellow, orange, red, pink, violet, blue) and segmented lines running inside the design. It's also horizontal and the byline is still intact.
  • There exists a variant in which the words in the end result don't move with the rainbow pattern.
  • An extremely rare variant features the "H-B", in a more straightforward stencil font, more towards the top of the screen and a large lime green/olive-brown "77" in the same style underneath. There are no "HANNA-BARBERA"s in either figure. The variant begins with this design cascading and forming on-screen, followed by several "starbursts" appearing, and the whole scene then gives way to four small circles that join together and zoom in to become a giant rotating circle, surrounded by a string of flashing live-action lights. Within the circle appear several (fairly obscure) Hanna-Barbera cartoon characters: Precious Pupp, Mumbly, Atom Ant, Winsome Witch, Squiddly Diddly and Chief Winchley, Pa Rugg from The Hillbilly Bears, and Secret Squirrel. The circle and lights then disappear, and (to the beat of the sound effects in the music) a starburst "explodes" several times before the "HB77" logo forms again onscreen. At the bottom for much of the animation is a byline for "Dolphin Productions/New York", with Dolphin Productions, a New York-based company that incorporated the first computer-generated effects in TV logos and advertisements, being the production company behind this variant. This logo was only used in and was created as an interstitial for the Hanna-Barbera programming block "HB '77" that aired on Rede Globo in Brazil that year. Another variant is rumored to exist with an "HB 78" logo.

FX/SFX: The Scanimate “rainbow” effects used in both the columns and actual logo; the words being “wiped” away.

Music/Sounds: Usually just the end theme of the show. None for the TV movie variant. The "HB '77" variation has instrumental bits of the theme to the Tom & Jerry Show, complete with the sound effects heard in that show's intro sequence.

Music/Sounds Variants:

  • Some repeats would have the theme, which seems to be synchronized perfectly with the logo.
  • On the Warner Home Video DVD print of Scooby Goes Hollywood, the "Swirling Star" logo theme played. This was probably because since the special was from December , it most likely was used to plaster the "Swirling Star" logo. The Swirling Star music has also been heard on a recent Australian rerun of The Scooby-Doo Show episode "Creepy Cruise".

Availability: Uncommon.

  • It's usually preserved on Hong Kong Phooey, The Super Friends Hour, Clue Club, Jabberjaw, Challenge of the Super Friends, Dynomutt: Dog Wonder, most of the final season of The Scooby-Doo Show, and some episodes of Yogi's Space Race whenever someone decides to show them; however, on some prints of the latter, the credits cut off early or they are plastered over with the "CGI Swirling Star", the same case was on Boomerang airings of Galaxy Goof Ups.
  • This was plastered by the , or Swirling Star logo on USA Network's USA Cartoon Express on such shows as Jabberjaw, Jana of the Jungle, Hong Kong Phooey, Clue Club and The New Fred & Barney Show.
  • It is also available on DVD releases of Hong Kong Phooey, seasons 1 & 3 of The Scooby-Doo Show (also available on Blu-Ray, with the modern WB TV Distribution logo appearing after it), Dynomutt: Dog Wonder, and the Warner Archive release of Captain Caveman and the Teen Angels.
  • This logo was also seen on the 1st season of The All-New Popeye Hour.
  • Was also seen on The Tom & Jerry Show () before the MGM Television logo (it is blacked out on the Boomerang streaming service's prints of the series).

Editor's Note: A bit more advanced than Hanna-Barbera's "box" logos, though there is still a bit of their usual cheesiness when you slow down the final "HANNA-BARBERA" changing into the H-B graphic. In fact, the animation on this logo is so simple, that when Warner Bros. Animation revived the HB name, this logo was remade in modern form.

Nicknames: "Swirling Star", "Twisting Star", "Taft Swirling Star", "Rainbow Twist", "H-B Swirling Star"

Logo: On a black background, a white star swirls down from the top, leaving behind a rainbow trail. It then settles into the center of the screen as it twirls, occasionally shrinking and twisting, forming a circular trail. It then twists into the middle of the circle and comes to a stop. The words “Hanna-Barbera Productions” in Belwe Medium font appear below.

Trivia: Basically, this is the Taft swirling star as seen on the Taft International Pictures logo, only rainbow colored. The logo was designed by Saul Bass.

Bylines:

  • September 8, January 31, “A TAFT BROADCASTING COMPANY” (in a white font)
  • September 12, May 20, “A DIVISION OF THE TAFT ENTERTAINMENT COMPANY”
    • In , the byline was altered/amended with "A DIVISION OF" over "THE TAFT ENTERTAINMENT COMPANY".
    • In , the byline appears in a large yellow font, and the logo appears smaller in this version.
  • June 7, "A GREAT AMERICAN BROADCASTING COMPANY"
  • Post prints of H-B shows from this era often have the Taft byline blacked out.

Variants:

  • In , a special version of this was used at the end of Jetsons: The Movie. This features the same animation, but “Hanna-Barbera” is written in the familiar cursive “script” font, first introduced in and the animation freeze-frames very shortly before the original animation ends. This variant also features a Great American byline, and is the only H-B logo to do so.
  • Beginning in , Hanna-Barbera created an opening logo to use at the beginning of some of their shows. It’s the same as the closing logo but it fades in during the middle of the animation. The text is changed, “Hanna-Barbera” is larger, and a small yellow “PRESENTS” is shown below. This opening variant (the version with the regular music) can still be found at the beginning of every episode of The Smurfs on Boomerang.
  • There is also an extremely rare still opening variant seen on the feature film GoBots: Battle of the Rock Lords and at the end of the Hanna-Barbera feature film Heidi's Song, in which there is a large "A Hanna-Barbera Production" byline and the logo is tiny in size.
  • On an older print of one episode of The Scooby-Doo Show, the logo is moved up a bit so that the Taft byline cannot be seen.
  • A rare variant is seen on the VHS Top Cat: T.C.'s Back in Town where the Swirling Star plays as usual, but it ends with the letters "HB" in black on top of the star itself and the star itself zooms in to make way for the words "HANNA BARBERA", which zooms out from the center to flash in multiple colors before ending in a red color. The music accompanying it is score music from A Pup Named Scooby-Doo.
  • On the TV special A Yabba-Dabba-Doo Celebration: 50 Years of Hanna-Barbera, an I.A.T.S.E. bug appears below the logo. This also appears on a pre-launch reel for Cartoon Network.
  • On an earthquake preparation video made for the Los Angeles Earthquake Preparation Program, the text on the bottom says "Hanna-Barbera PRESENTS" with the text below in a Helvetica font. The white star then suddenly zooms in and engulfs the screen, and flashes to the video's introduction. At the end, the "Swirling Star" is smaller and the text says "A HANNA-BARBERA PRODUCTION FOR CITY OF LOS ANGELES EARTHQUAKE PREPARATION PROGRAM".
  • Another dark/deteriorated variant was seen on a recent Boomerang airing of the Smurfs episode "The Smurfs' Time Capsule", where the trail was almost entirely invisible. Only the star and the text could be seen.

FX/SFX: The star and residue trail. Cel animation effects.

Music/Sounds: Best described as “futuristic synthesized music". We start out with ascending and descending chimes mixed with a "whoosh" sound with each revolution of the star. When the star stops, the entire thing culminates in a somewhat gentle, but abrupt, acoustic guitar and bass chord as the chimes finish in the background. This was written by Hoyt Curtin.

Music/Sounds Variants:

  • The opening variant used a sweeping chime sound, though s Jetsons episodes feature a rendition of the Jetsons' doorbell (the “Meet George Jetson” piece of the theme rendered in chimes).
  • The variant used a majestic version of the "Meet George Jetson" theme, in the style of The Simpsons theme song (or more precisely, Danny Elfman).
  • On VHS releases of episodes of The Greatest Stories: Tales from the Bible, the logo is silent.
  • Some shows have appeared with the first variant with a blacked-out byline, but with the music from the 4th logo. This was chiefly used to update the logo on Scooby-Doo, Where Are You!, but has spread to other shows as well, including post reruns of Casper's First Christmas and was also spotted on an episode of Josie and the Pussycats. This instance also happened on the The Smurfs episode "The Adventures of Robin Smurf" and another instance on a U.S. syndicated rerun episode of The Smurfs. This variant was sort of common, but became rare when Warner Bros. updated the prints of Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! in , and tacked on the "Action All-Stars" logo.
  • On a Canadian VHS tape of The Three Musketeers, the logo is silent; however, when the logo freezes, a note from some other cartoon theme song plays, then the ordinary synthesizer music begins.
  • On The All-New Popeye Hour on The Family Channel (later Fox Family and ABC Family, now Freeform), some reruns of the episodes would have this logo and the music on it played in sped-up mode due to time compressing.
  • On releases of The Greatest Adventure: Stories From the Bible, early '90s prints of the Godzilla cartoon, and Boomerang airings of CB Bears, the ending of the show's theme is heard over the logo.
  • There is a high-toned variant that was seen at the end of one U.S. Boomerang rerun episode of The Super Globetrotters, due to the U.S. Boomerang's prints of The Super Globetrotters airing in PAL format, but on the Warner Archive DVD releases, this is played in the normal tone.
  • On the theatrical re-release of Hey There, It's Yogi Bear, the film's opening music cue plays over the "presents" variation of the logo. At the end, the standard version of the logo plays silent.
  • The pre-launch promo has an announcer say "And since we bought Hanna-Barbera"

Availability: Common in its “unaltered” form, though many prints still have the logo's Taft bylines blacked out or bylineless.

  • Currently seen on The Smurfs on Boomerang, and was also shown on Super Friends: The Legendary Super Powers Show, the first two seasons of The Snorks, The Yogi Bear Show, some episodes of Josie and the Pussycats, Josie and the Pussycats in Outer Space (intact on episodes 6 and 8 on The Warner Archive DVD release), season 1 of Scooby-Doo and Scrappy-Doo (with the low tone WBTVD logo following, intact on HBO Max's prints but with the WBTV following instead), 4 episodes of Galaxy Goof Ups, most episodes of The Richie Rich Show, a few existing s syndicated remastered episodes of Top Cat, the season of The Jetsons, and the short lived The 13 Ghosts of Scooby-Doo when last rerun on Boomerang (though 13 Ghosts retained this logo on its DVD release and on the Boomerang streaming service).
  • The episodes of The Jetsons don't retain this on remastered prints due to plastering by the Comedy All Stars logo, but it's intact on HBO Max.
  • Very interestingly, this logo (w/ Taft byline) appears right after the "Zooming H-B" on the DVD releases of The Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm Show and The Flintstones Comedy Show. It also recently appeared after the "Zooming H-B" logo on the former's episode "Focus Foolery" when last rerun on Boomerang as well.
  • The H-B Presents logo with the "Meet George Jetson" chimes is rare and so far it has been spotted on many The Jetsons episodes on the Boomerang streaming service and intact on HBO Max, and has also appeared on airings on Teletoon Canada.
  • The blacked-out byline version appears at the end of Boomerang and DVD prints of Yogi and the Invasion of the Space Bears and Scooby-Doo and the Reluctant Werewolf, plastering the next logo, and it is cut from the Boomerang streaming service's print of the film while the Warner Archive DVD release of the former plasters this logo with the 10th logo.
  • There are also some prints with this logo (with b/o byline) actually plastering the next logo.
  • The "A Hanna-Barbera Production" variant is extremely rare.
  • On The Scooby-Doo Show episode "Jeepers! It's the Jaguaro!", the variant plasters the H-B logo.
  • Sadly, this logo also plasters the Fred Flintstone logos on VHS releases of Tom & Jerry Kids, and has the Taft symbol being removed.
  • This was also seen on the TV special/pilot episode of Pound Puppies. The "presents" variant was also seen on Challenge of the GoBots and The Flintstone Kids, as well as the TV movie Scooby-Doo and the Reluctant Werewolf and at least one episode of Wake, Rattle & Roll (odd for the latter three, considering the logo was no longer used by this point); it was also used as part of the intro for The Funtastic World of Hanna-Barbera (the syndicated cartoon block).
  • The logo was also seen on some pre-Turner prints of The Scooby-Doo Show on Cartoon Network Australia.
  • It was also previously seen on season 1 reruns of Shirt Tales and plastered over with the "CGI Swirling Star" on season 2 reruns on Boomerang.
  • This version, the "CGI Swirling Star" and the "All Stars Comedy" logos below have plastered the H-B Rainbow logo on Boomerang's reruns of Laff-a-Lympics.
  • This was retained on early s TV Land airings of The Fonz & The Happy Days Gang which followed the Paramount Domestic Television logo (said logo was silent except for 2 episodes).
  • It has also been seen on some episodes of Amigo and Friends.

Editor's Note: Perhaps Hanna-Barbera's most famous and memorable closing logo. It's still a favorite among people who grew up watching TV during this time, or watching Hanna-Barbera's shows on Cartoon Network in the '90s.

8th Logo (September 6, ; December 15, ; November 18, July 12, )

  • Hanna-Barbera Productions ().png
  • Hanna Barbera(79).jpg
  • Hanna-Barbera ().png
  • Hanna-Barbera ().png
  • Hanna-Barbera Productions ().png
  • Hanna Barbera(14).png
  • Hanna Barbera(15).png

Nicknames: "Swirling Star II", "CGI Swirling Star", "Twisting Star II", "Taft Swirling Star II", "Shining Star Twist", "H-B Swirling Star II"

Logo: An updated version of the previous logo, but now done in CGI. The trail is now metallic, and the star now realistically twists and turns and has a nice shine effect when the logo fully forms. The text and the respective company byline are in a different font and are slightly smaller.

Trivia: This version was produced by Hanna-Barbera software designers James Mahoney and Bennett Leeds.

Bylines:

  • September 6, July 16, "A DIVISION OF THE TAFT ENTERTAINMENT COMPANY"
  • September 10, ; December 15, (Bylineless; Great American Broadcasting era)
  • November 18, February 9, , April 3, , April 20, "A Time Warner Company"
  • April 27, July 12, "An AOL Time Warner Company"

Variants:

  • The version often has the logo slightly enlarged.
  • On some shows, the bylineless version has the logo shifted up.
  • A still variant was seen on The Pirates of Dark Water and on episodes of The Greatest Adventure: Stories From the Bible, with all names and bylines completely blacked out and replaced with "HANNA-BARBERA, INC." in a generic font. This also sometimes plastered the custom H-B logo at the end of Fish Police.
  • An updated version of this logo was used when this revived in All names and bylines are completely blacked out, and instead, the text “HANNA-BARBERA CARTOONS” in Haettenschweiler with the Time Warner (later AOL Time Warner starting in ) byline below it fades in below the logo. Plus, the logo becomes static after the logo forms. When the Cartoon Network Productions logo is to follow this logo, the white background with the shiny Cartoon Network logo and the Time Warner byline below zooms in from the star's center point, and when it stops, the service mark (SM) symbol appears on the center right of the logo, similar to the "Character Portrait II" logo. Beginning with The Powerpuff Girls episode "A Very Special Blossom / Daylight Savings", the "Ripple" logo was used.
  • Sometimes, the regular version of this logo also carries a blacked out byline where the Taft byline usually is.
  • Copyright dates may be substituted for the "Hanna-Barbera Productions" text.
  • An out-of-sync version exists on a rerun of the season 3 The Jetsons episode "Crime Games"; the music comes in slightly too early on this variant, so the logo freezes and the text appears about halfway through the final note of the theme.

FX/SFX: Same as above, except with great CGI.

Music/Sounds: Same as the previous logo.

Music/Sounds Variants:

  • The closing theme of the show was used on shows such as recent reruns of Jana of the Jungle (due to plastering), the short-lived series The Completely Mental Misadventures of Ed Grimley, the final season of The Smurfs, The Flintstone Kids' Just Say No Special, and Cartoon Network and Boomerang airings of The Smurfs Christmas special "Tis the Season to Be Smurfy".
  • On Boomerang's prints of The Flintstone Comedy Show, the logo used the end theme of the show (carried on from the logo which preceded this variant), and halfway through, it cuts to the regular music already in progress.
  • On The Powerpuff Girls episode "Dream Scheme/You Snooze, You Lose" and the Dexter's Laboratory special "Ego Trip", two recordings of the same theme are playing simultaneously, making the music a little louder.

Availability: Uncommon.

  • The original version was last seen on most episodes of Galaxy Goof Ups, seasons 3 and 4 of The Snorks, post-season 5 episodes of The Smurfs, Fantastic Max, season 1 of Pound Puppies, A Pup Named Scooby-Doo and The Pirates of Dark Water when rerun on Boomerang (though A Pup Named Scooby-Doo preserves it on DVD releases and the Boomerang streaming service) and used to be seen on some episodes of Scooby Doo and Scrappy Doo (which plasters the "Star" and the Ruby-Spears logo) when aired on Cartoon Network in the late 90's to mid s. Airings of the Johnny Bravo episode "Under the Big Flop" on Cartoon Network used the version of this logo instead of the standard "Character Portrait II" logo, possibly due to an editing mistake.
  • The version can be seen on the first four seasons of The Powerpuff Girls on most reruns and DVD releases of the show, and the Dexter's Laboratory special "Ego Trip". Beginning with "Keen on Keane / Not So Awesome Blossom", the Cartoon Network Studios logo is being used in place of this logo.
  • It can be spotted at the end of the Scooby-Doo TV movies Scooby-Doo Meets the Boo Brothers () (except for the Boomerang streaming service's print) and Scooby-Doo and the Ghoul School (); overseas prints of Scooby-Doo and the Reluctant Werewolf retain this logo as well (it's plastered with the previous logo on domestic prints).
  • Also added to the end of some s shows with no logo (very common in the past, but rather rare nowadays), and is sometimes seen at the end of shows that originally had an older H-B logo or one of the early s in-credit logo variations, but that is rather rare as well, though this has recently happened on Boomerang reruns of the short-lived Cattanooga Cats. However, an instance of that was spotted on a May 8, airing of the pilot episode of Yogi's Space Race.
  • The version with the Taft byline still exists on The Flintstone Kids (which was plastered on the WBHV Saturday Morning DVD by the "Comedy" logo) and Popeye and Son.
  • This was also seen on S3 episodes of The Jetsons from , as well as the revival of Jonny Quest which is intact on HBO Max.
  • It was also spotted on Yo, Yogi!, both when originally aired on NBC and when rerun on a foreign Boomerang channel.

Editor's Note: It's a nice CGI re-imagining of the logo above, which was a good achievement for its time, but the end result doesn't look as appealing as the previous logo. While it never reached the popularity of its predecessor, it's a fairly remembered logo for people who grew up during this period or those watching Cartoon Network/Boomerang reruns of this era of TV programming.

9th Logo (September 10, )

  • Hanna Barbera(82).jpg
  • Hanna Barbera(83).jpg
  • Hanna Barbera(84).jpg
  • Hanna Barbera(85).jpg

Logo: Basically, an in-credit variant of the 7th logo next to the cursive “Hanna-Barbera” logo. This is superimposed over the credits, like the earliest H-B logos.

Variant:

  • On the final two seasons of The Smurfs, as well as the opening credits of Jetsons: The Movie, there is no swirling star.
  • For the opening to Jetsons: The Movie, we see a series of CGI musical notes (the first four notes of the Jetsons theme), which turns around to reveal the cursive "Hanna-Barbera" logo and the words "A" and "PRODUCTION" fade in. Then, the camera zooms past the logo.

FX/SFX: None for The Smurfs variant. For the Jetsons: The Movie variant, a combination of CGI animation and 2D animation.

Music/Sounds: The closing theme of the show. On Jetsons: The Movie, it's the intro theme of the film.

Availability: Rare. Seen on the final two seasons of The Smurfs as well as on the opening credits of Jetsons: The Movie and season two of Tom and Jerry Kids (as a dual credit with Turner Entertainment Co., though Turner Broadcasting, the parent of TEC, who would ironically end up owning them in ) which is sadly plastered by the previous logo on VHS releases, but is preserved on Boomerang's streaming service. The Jetsons: The Movie version is the most widely available.

10th Logo (September 7, )

  • Hanna Barbera(86).jpg
  • Hanna Barbera(16).png

Nicknames: "Happy Birthday Fred!", "The Flintstones 30th Anniversary logo"

Logo: Against a sky-blue background, Fred Flintstone, in a purple "caveman tuxedo", waves a 'magic cane' to make a box with the words “THE FIRST 30 YEARS” inside it appear next to him. He puts away the cane and proceeds to tap-dance in front of a purple baseball diamond-like shape. Above that in an arc is a sign reading “THE FLINTSTONES”, with "THE" in a small black triangle above the arc. Below is the Hanna-Barbera script logo in blue.

Trivia: This logo was created in celebration of the 30th anniversary of The Flintstones premiere back in

Variants:

  • One version (possibly only a print logo) used a background of animated TV static. It has Fred in a black caveman tuxedo, the Hanna-Barbera script logo in yellow and a red baseball diamond shape.
  • Home Video releases have the Hanna-Barbera Home Video logo in place of the normal logo.

FX/SFX: Fred tap-dancing, which is typical H-B animation of the time. The logo was designed by Scott Shaw and animated by Mike Kazaleh.

Music/Sounds: The ending of the show’s theme, or a synth instrumental of the Flintstones theme with a "zap" and a drumbeat.

Availability: Extremely rare. It was last seen on the first season of Tom and Jerry Kids on Boomerang, and it can still be seen on the Boomerang streaming service's prints of the show, but VHS releases plastered it with the 9th logo. More shows that carried this logo are Wake, Rattle & Roll (with the synth theme), and the first season of Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventures which can currently be seen on Hulu. Gravedale High also used this logo, preceding the NBC Productions logo.

Editor's Note: A pretty good way to commemorate the 30th anniversary of The Flintstones.

11th Logo (February 12, December 4, )

  • Tom and Jerry Kids (seasons )

  • The Addams Family ( TV series, season 1)

  • Hanna Barbera(91).jpg
  • Hanna Barbera(17).png

Logo: In-credit like the 9th logo. We see the words “H-B Production Co.” This could be in any font; in many examples it appears in the H-B script font or in a different script font.

Trivia: First seen on The Pirates of Dark Water, last seen on I Yabba-Dabba Do!

Variants: In addition to the fonts, there are many variants of this:

  • On The Pirates of Dark Water, there is only an opening variant that simply has the words "Hanna-Barbera" in a Maya blue medieval type font.
  • On seasons 3 and 4 of Tom and Jerry Kids, there is a dual credit with Turner Entertainment Co., the copyright owner of Tom and Jerry. It is positioned on a green background with a spotlight illuminating it, mimicking the red endcard of the classic Tom and Jerry shorts.
  • On the first season of the animated revival of The Addams Family, "H-B Production Co." is below a dark-colored "Hanna-Barbera" script logo, and the entire thing is surrounded by cobwebs on a black background.
  • On Fish Police, "Hanna-Barbera, Inc." is below the normal script logo (in a red/yellow gradient color) on an underwater background.
  • On Capitol Critters, "Produced in Association with" is above the HANNA-BARBERA, INC. script.
  • On Monster in My Pocket: The Big Scream, we see a clip, then the Hanna-Barbera script appears after the monster raises its hat with its antenna, the script moving closer with "H-B PRODUCTION CO." with electric trails on the Hanna-Barbera script.
  • On I Yabba-Dabbe Do!, it's simply the H-B Production Co. text in an italicized font against a textured blue-green background.

FX/SFX: None.

Music/Sounds: The closing theme of the show or none.

Availability: Very rare. The Addams Family variant was last seen when Boomerang reran the series every October, and is also seen on VHS releases of the show. It was also seen on I Yabba-Dabba-Do!, which also preserves the logo on Boomerang and VHS. Whenever The Pirates of Dark Water aired on Boomerang, the logo was removed, but it is intact on VHS releases of the series. The Fish Police variant was plastered with the "Hanna Barbera Inc." still CGI Swirling Star variant when Cartoon Network UK last aired the series many years ago. Capitol Critters also had this logo, but that show hasn't been seen since the late '90s. It can be also still seen on season 3 and 4 episodes on Tom and Jerry Kids on some DVDs, especially The Complete Seasons DVD in Germany, and sometimes during the "Tom and Jerry Marathon" on Boomerang.

Nicknames: "Character Portrait", "All-Star Prototype", "HB All-Stars"

Logo: On a colored background, we see a partial picture of a Hanna-Barbera character inside a geometric shape. Somewhere inside the picture is the “Hanna-Barbera” script logo.

Trivia: First seen on 2 Stupid Dogs, last seen on the final episode of SWAT Kats: The Radical Squadron entitled, "Unlikely Alloys".

Custom Variants: This was customized for each show produced by H-B during this era, and is available on only that specified show or TV movie:

  • 2 Stupid Dogs: There are two variants for this show: the opening had Little Dog in front of Big Dog laughing in a red vertical rectangle, with the "Hanna-Barbera" text yellow and angled vertically on the right side (at degrees clockwise), and "PRESENTS" is below the logo (all of this zooms in). This logo later zooms in to the show's opening. The closing however, has the rectangle tilted so that it puts the "Hanna-Barbera" text at an angle, "PRESENTS" is removed, and the rectangle is raspberry-colored. Both variants use a white background. On at least one episode of this show, the end logo was completely vertical and applause was heard.
  • SWAT Kats: A grinning picture of one of the Kats inside a light blue oval (T-Bone, opening variant; for season 1, it cross-fades into the intro; for season 2, it flashes with energy, then fades into a shot of T-Bone, in his civilian identity, working on a car using a blow torch) or vertical rectangle (Razor, closing variant). A yellow-green “Hanna-Barbera” is seen, slanted and near the top. The background is either a dark blue-black gradient on the opening variant, or a dark blue-light blue gradient on the closing variant.
  • Jonny Quest: A headshot of Jonny Quest in a vertical magenta rectangle. A green “Hanna-Barbera”, on an angle, is somewhere near the top. The background is dark turquoise.
  • The Addams Family: A headshot of Uncle Fester in a vertical pistachio-colored rectangle. A blue-purple "Hanna-Barbera", turned degrees clockwise, is on the right. This is on a fuchsia background.
  • The Halloween Tree: A headshot of Mr. Moundshroud in a tomato-colored oval. A yellow "Hanna-Barbera" is near the bottom of the oval. The background is a gradient midnight blue (which seems vaguely similar to the one in the SWAT Kats opening variant).
  • Fred: A headshot of Fred Flintstone inside a purple rectangle. A blue "HANNA-BARBERA" on angle facing the top. The background is black.
  • Santa Fred: A headshot of Fred, in Santa hat and outfit, inside a blue rectangle. The background inside the shape is blue, with snow against it. A yellow "Hanna-Barbera", slanted down, is near the top. The background is green, red or blue.
  • Droopy, Master Detective: A headshot of Droopy inside a solid blue rectangle. A yellow "Hanna-Barbera" is on the side. This is on a black-blue gradient background.
  • Dino: A headshot of Dino the Dinosaur in a light blue rectangle. A yellow "Hanna-Barbera" is on the side. The background is dark blue.
  • Yogi Bear: A headshot of a grinning Yogi Bear inside a rose bonbon rectangle. A tangerine-yellow "Hanna-Barbera" is on the side. This is on a solid blue background.
  • The Jetsons: A headshot of George Jetson with a huge smile inside of a pistachio-colored rectangle with a pink "Hanna-Barbera" on its side. The background is hot pink.

FX/SFX: Depends. The closing variants are still, but for the opening variants, it's the zooming in for the opening 2 Stupid Dogs logo or the cross-fade and/or flashing to the intro for the opening SWAT Kats logo.

Music/Sounds: A montage of sound effects from the company’s classic extensive library of sound effects (which, ironically, Hanna-Barbera was beginning to stop using around this time in their cartoons). It’s different for each logo:

  • Dino and Fred: A rapid bongo drum take.
  • Jonny Quest: The same rapid bongo drum take and a zing-out whistle.

Music/Sounds Variants:

  • Sometimes the opening and closing themes of the show play over the logo instead.
  • On SWAT Kats, for the intro variants, it has a heavy metal tune (the beginning of the intro), along with electrical noises during the 2nd season; the first season has a deep bass note.
  • On the opening variant for 2 Stupid Dogs, a brief drumroll is heard, followed by alarm-like kazoos that begin the opening theme.
  • The "Comedy" sound effect montage from the 14th logo is heard over this logo at the end of the TV movie Scooby-Doo in Arabian Nights.
  • On Romanian dubbing prints of Droopy Master Detective, the logo is silent.

Availability: All the logos' rarity are different, but as a whole, uncommon:

  • 2 Stupid Dogs: Rare; it's preserved on the 2 Stupid Dogs DVD set from Warner Archive.
  • Jonny Quest: Rare, was last seen on all season four and five episodes of The New Adventures of Captain Planet when previously rerun on Boomerang. It was also seen on some prints of Jonny Quest from the early '90s.
  • SWAT Kats: Uncommon. It was last seen on reruns of said show on Boomerang, along with the VHS tapes and the DVDs from Warner Archive.
  • The Addams Family: Extremely rare. It's seen on original airings of the show on ABC and some VHS tapes of the animated adaptation of said show, and remains intact on some airings on Boomerang.
  • The Halloween Tree: Rare. It's only seen on the said special, which is available on VHS and DVD through Warner Archive, and remains intact whenever Boomerang re-airs the special.
  • Fred: Rare. It is known to appear on the VHS tape The Flintstones: Wacky Inventions and may have appeared on '90s prints of said show.
  • Santa Fred: Uncommon. The green variant is seen on The Town Santa Forgot, the red variant on A Flintstone Family Christmas, while the blue variant is seen on A Flintstones Christmas Carol, all of which are available on VHS and are available on the Boomerang streaming service.
  • Droopy, Master Detective: It was only seen on said show, but it can be found on Boomerang's streaming service with the logo intact.
  • Dino: Rare. It's only seen at the end of the Flintstones special Hollyrock-a-Bye-Baby, which is available on VHS.
  • Yogi Bear: Uncommon. It's seen on Yogi the Easter Bear and Scooby-Doo's Arabian Nights, the former airing on Boomerang every Easter, the latter airing on Boomerang occasionally, and both are available on VHS, DVD and the Boomerang streaming service. It was also seen on some prints of Yogi Bear from the '90s.
  • The Jetsons: Extinct. It was only seen on prints of said show from the early '90s.

Editor's Note: An interesting and memorable way to rebrand the cartoon studio starting in the '90s.

13th Logo (April 4, )

Hanna Barbera(99).jpg

Nicknames: “Animated All-Stars", "HB All-Stars II"

Logo: Up against a black background, a famous Hanna-Barbera character appears in a colored oval with the byline "H-B PRODUCTION CO." below in white. This was an opening logo used before a program.

Variants:

  • Muttley from Wacky Races and Dastardly & Muttley is seen in an orange oval and does his trademark snicker as the "Hanna-Barbera" script logo "writes" itself onscreen in copper letters.
  • Jonny Quest (utilizing some sort of arm device) is seen in a blue oval with the "Hanna-Barbera" script logo shining in copper letters.

FX/SFX: The character appearing and the text writing/shining.

Music/Sounds: We hear Muttley's famous laugh, and as the Hanna-Barbera script logo is appearing, we hear a small clarinet piece (an archival music cue from H-B's music library, written by Hoyt Curtin). On the Jonny Quest version, just the end theme to the special.

Availability: The Muttley version is seen at the start of the TV special Scooby-Doo in Arabian Nights, which occasionally airs on Boomerang, but is cut on most home video releases and on the Boomerang streaming service. It also appeared on the Scooby-Doo: Bumper Edition UK VHS, the The Jetsons - The First Episodes Bulgarian VHS and at the start of the Flintstones special Hollyrock-a-Bye Baby. The Jonny Quest version was only seen on Jonny's Golden Quest, and was kept intact on a Boomerang airing.

14th Logo (September 3, November 28, )

  • Hanna-Barbera 'Comedy' ().png
  • Hanna Barbera().jpg
  • Hanna Barbera().jpg
  • Hanna-Barbera 'Action' () 1.png
  • Hanna-Barbera 'Action' () 2.png

Nicknames: “All-Stars”, "H-B (Comedy/Action) Stars", "HB All-Stars III," "Kabong!", "The Annoying HB Logo", "The HB Logo of Plaster"

Logo: On a blurry white background with several colorful abstract shapes flying about, we see a clear square/oval that provides a “clear” view of the flying shapes; the square/oval has the Hanna-Barbera Script logo embossed in it at the top. Suddenly, we see some of Hanna-Barbera’s most famous stars running through the logo, as the square/oval begins to rotate. At the end, one of the stars ends up coming towards the logo, ending in a very extreme close-up of the star. A very small Turner byline (with Turner's own logo) appears in the lower right. Depending on the show genre, one of these two similar but very distinct variants of this logo is used; one for Hanna-Barbera comedy shows, and the other for Hanna-Barbera action shows. The stars, “music”, and logo shape differed depending on the logo. Here are the stars for each version of the logo, in the order that they appear:

  • Comedy: The "Hanna-Barbera" script logo is yellow and in a blue rectangle:
  1. Fred Flintstone (as if running or sliding or something)
  2. Yogi Bear (grinning)
  3. Huckleberry Hound (diving or falling)
  4. Dino
  5. George Jetson (with a very classic “what?” expression)
  6. Elroy Jetson (flying in a pod; the same animation seen in the Jetsons opening sequence)
  7. Barney Rubble (very hidden, you have to look close to find him)
  8. El Kabong (Quick Draw McGraw’s Zorro-esque alter-ego)
  9. Scooby-Doo (with a weird “craning neck” animation)
  10. Fred (zooms towards the logo; extreme close-up of his face)
  • Action: The "Hanna-Barbera" script logo is sky blue and in a gray oval:
  1. Bandit (Jonny Quest’s dog)
  2. Atom Ant
  3. Jonny Quest (in his trademark black shirt)
  4. Dr. Benton Quest (Jonny’s dad)
  5. The Thing (yes, of the Fantastic Four, and H-B did a series of the Fantastic Four in in conjunction with Marvel Comics, even though H-B doesn’t even own the characters!)
  6. Zandor (firing an arrow)
  7. Space Ghost
  8. Birdman
  9. Zok, the Laser Dragon creature from The Herculoids
  10. Jonny Quest with kung-fu like outfit (another zoom; like he’s kicking into the camera)

Trivia: This logo was animated by Charlex. First seen on SWAT Kats: The Radical Squadron. Last seen on the Malcom and Melvin short "Babe He Calls Me".

Variants:

  • A still variant of the "Comedy" logo was also shown on the cartoon incarnation of Dumb and Dumber, with a small "In association with" text below; the New Line Television logo would follow.
  • Later episodes of The Real Adventures of Jonny Quest had this logo bylineless.
  • A version of the "Comedy All-Stars" logo has a variant with the Turner byline strangely blacked out.

FX/SFX: Animation of various H-B characters inside the square/oval and background, the shape slowly turning, the shine on the shape, and byline appearing.

Music/Sounds: Like the last logo, classic H-B sound effects, but there is more than one used during the logo, and they are arranged to create a neat “tune”. The music differs depending on the logo:

  • Comedy starts off with the weird horn sound effect from The Flintstones and The Jetsons, as we hear the sound usually heard as an H-B character starts to run away playing underneath. Then we hear a "boing" sound, several comical "fighting" sound effects, and finally the "kabong" sound of Quick Draw McGraw/El Kabong's guitar broken and dent over someone's head.
  • Action features a 60s bass riff playing throughout. First, we hear a screeching sound like a cartoon pterodactyl might make, a jet flying, an elephant trumpeting, and finally a loud low-pitched gong.

Music/Sounds Variants:

  • On the Romanian dubbing print of the Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! episode "A Night of Fright is No Delight", the music from the "Zooming" logo is heard due to an editing mistake.
  • On the Polish dubbing print of The Addams Family episode "Little Big Thing/Little Bad Riding Hood/Metamorphosister", the music from the Turner Entertainment Co. "CGI Globe" logo (the short variant) is heard due to an editing error.
  • On recent Cartoon Network CEE airings of The Scooby-Doo Show, the music from the end credits plays for a few seconds, then it cuts to a high-pitched version of the "Swirling Star" music. This is due to a split-screen formatting error.
  • Most TV prints of the Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! episode "Never Ape an Ape Man" have the Action variant appearing with the audio from the "Comedy" version, most likely due to an editing error.
  • On the Top Cat episode "The $1,, Derby" and The Flintstones episodes "Bamm-Bamm" and "The Hatrocks and the Gruesomes", the "Comedy" audio is low toned.
  • On a few shows, the closing theme was used, such as the Boomerang streaming service's prints of The Richie Rich Show.
  • On The Flintstones episode "The Big Move" and an overseas Boomerang airing of a pre un-restored print of a episode of The Jetsons, the "Swirling Star" sound was used over the "Comedy" version, both due to editing errors. However, Me-TV airings of "The Big Move" (before being issued an updated print by Warner Bros.) have only the first half of the "Swirling Star" music before the "Comedy" version's soundtrack is joined in progress.
  • On some Romanian dubbing prints of The Perils of Penelope Pitstop, the music from the "Zooming" logo along with the Warner Bros. Television theme plays over the whole logo.

Availability: Common, due to the being the chief means of plastering, though not as bad as you might think; it was typically on “new” post prints of the most popular shows, mostly '60s shows that had an in-credit logo and Screen Gems logo/text.

  • In most cases, they match the right logo with the right show; the exceptions are the prints of Scooby-Doo, Where Are You!, which replace the "H-B Box" and "Swirling Star" with the "Action All-Stars" logo; however, when TBS aired Where Are You! in , the "Comedy" logo was used.
  • Warner Bros. still uses this logo today to plaster older H-B logos on certain newer prints.
  • The "Comedy" variant also appeared on Cartoon Network Pan-European prints of the animated revival of The Addams Family preceded by the 11th logo.
  • The "Action" variant also appeared on The Scooby-Doo Show in the episode "A Menace in Venice" by plastering the "H-B" logo on Boomerang.
  • The "Comedy" variant was also seen on 2 Stupid Dogs (season 2), and at the end of cartoons produced in (with the exception of the short Awfully Lucky), airing from to on The What-a-Cartoon Show (later rebranded as The Cartoon Cartoon Show).
  • The appropriate variants can also be spotted on some DVDs of H-B cartoons, such as The Flintstones, The Jetsons, Wacky Races, Valley of the Dinosaurs, Thundarr the Barbarian, The Funky Phantom, Josie & the Pussycats, Josie & the Pussycats In Outer Space (on all but 3 episodes), Sky Commanders, and the version of The Addams Family.
  • The "Comedy" variant also appeared on Boomerang and Me-TV reruns of The Flintstones (before MeTV was issued updated prints of that show by Warner Bros.), the version of Scooby-Doo and Scrappy-Doo and on the Dr. Seuss special Daisy-Head Mayzie on VHS.
  • The "Action" variant also plastered the "CGI Swirling Star" on Boomerang reruns of the version of Jonny Quest; while the "Comedy All-Stars" variant also plastered the "Swirling Star" on a few episodes and on remastered prints of the s version of The Jetsons and the "Zooming H-B" logo and the WBTV logo on Pan-European prints of The Perils of Penelope Pitstop.
  • The "Action" variant was first used on SWAT Kats and the fifth season of The New Adventures of Captain Planet, and can be seen on the Warner Archive DVD release.

Editor's Note: The logo utilizes a nifty combination of 2-D animation (the characters) with cool 3-D elements (the H-B shape). Despite this, this logo can be considered annoying by some for plastering over previous (and even later) logos, a practice Warner Bros. continues to do today. Still, it's neat to see all the characters.

Nicknames: "Character Portrait II", "HB All-Stars IV", "H-B/CN All-Stars"

Logo: Like the 12th logo, a still of an H-B character in a shape, usually an oval. The character is always the one that has been featured in the show that has just ended, so there are quite a number of variations (some variations have 2 or more characters). The background is almost always white. Below the logo, there is usually a Time Warner byline.

Trivia: First seen as an in-credit logo on The What-a-Cartoon! Show, the standalone version was first seen on the short The Chicken from Outer Space, and first seen regularly on the premiere of Cow & Chicken. However, the Dino variant debuted in the back side of the studio's calendar. Also, the Dexter variant debuted on the book, The World of Hanna-Barbera and an advertisement. It was last seen on the final episode of season 3 of Johnny Bravo.

Bylines:

  • "A Time Warner Company"
  • "An AOL Time Warner Company"

Variants:

  • As noted above, each Hanna-Barbera produced original series for Cartoon Network from onward starting with Cave Kids (used in February ) had this logo, always with the cartoon’s star(s), the only exception was The Powerpuff Girls, which used an altered version of the 8th logo. This not only included the regular half-hour series but one-off shorts, previously called What a Cartoon!, that now fell under the Cartoon Cartoons banner (which are now no longer rerun on TV). Thus, there are a large number of variations.
  • Some of the very early logos had a different style byline. Appearing in an arc-like fashion below the logo are the words “Hanna-Barbera Cartoons, Inc. A Time Warner Company”. This was soon dropped. It was mostly used on Cow and Chicken (sometimes with the other byline), but also appeared on a few Dexter's Laboratory episodes.
  • Some H-B cartoons from this period had some animation to include Cartoon Network’s logo; the H-B logo would iris-out () or zoom out (), and then a "shiny" version of Cartoon Network’s logo would zoom in. Additional sound effects were used for this. Again, quickly dropped, as CN was putting a specially-created network logo after Cartoon Cartoons. In some cases, there would be a quick fade out before the CN logo would appear! This was only used during mid early ; it was retained on Boomerang airings of Cow and Chicken, usually with the byline variant (also appears on a few Dexter's Laboratory episodes (including the TV movie Ego Trip, where it appeared by zooming out of the top point in the "CGI Swirling Star") and at least one Johnny Bravo episode).
  • On the HD remaster of Scooby-Doo on Zombie Island, the Scooby variant mentioned below has the Time Warner byline missing and the oval centered.
  • On all episodes of The What-a-Cartoon Show, a headshot of Fred Flintstone looking upwards in a pale purple oval with rose-pink script is plastered onto the lower right corner of the opening sequence.
  • On a promo on the VHS of Tink The Little Dinosaur: Lights Out!, we can see Atom Ant flying while waving. The camera zooms out to reveal the oval, as the letters "Hanna Barbera" appear. We see the text "Look out for these hilarious Hanna-Barbera cartoon characters on home video." fade in.

List of series or shorts with characters:

  • Courage the Cowardly Dog (Pilot): The end of the What-a-Cartoon episode "The Chicken from Outer Space" has a head shot of Fred Flintstone inside of a purple oval on a black background, with the H-B script in bright turquoise. This was later replaced by the "Comedy All-Stars" logo.
  • Cow and Chicken (Pilot): A head shot of Dino from The Flintstones inside an orange oval with the H-B script in blue on a sky blue background. Under the logo is a copyright. On later airings, this logo was replaced by the "Comedy All-Stars" logo.
  • Dexter's Laboratory (Season 2): A side profile of Dexter in a navy blue oval. The H-B script is medium red-violet.
  • Cow and Chicken: Two variants: seasons 1 and 3 has Chicken at the left and Cow at the right in an aqua oval with yellow H-B script (common on Boomerang); season 2 has Cow holding Chicken by his neck with apricot-colored script. The oval is also aqua.
  • Johnny Bravo (Seasons ): Again, two variants: season one has Johnny in a purple oval with yellow H-B script; another features a close-up of Johnny in a sky blue oval w/lime green H-B script. The first one debuted at the end of the third episode of the first season on July 21, The later one only appeared on two episodes of the second season.
  • I Am Weasel: I.M. Weasel on the left giving a shy look and I.R. Baboon giving an annoyed/suspicious look on the right inside a jungle green oval. The H-B script is shocking pink.
  • Kenny & the Chimp: Kenny on the left and Chimp on the right inside a pale turquoise oval. The H-B script is pumpkin orange.
  • Foe Paws: Mamma Mia smiling in between Rolo with a surprised look, and Vivian glaring, inside a grasshopper-green rectangle. The H-B script is leyden blue.
  • King Crab: King Crab with his frustrated face is on the top contained in a white rectangle. The H-B script is federal blue.
  • Whatever Happened to Robot Jones? (Pilot): Robot Jones is tilted a bit inside a lime green rectangle. The H-B script is red. This was seen only on the pilot episode in
  • Thrillseeker: (from left to right) Joe, Otto and Ashley have excited looks on their faces in a pale blue oval. The H-B script is dark turquoise.
  • Uncle Gus: Uncle Gus stands in a ready-to-run pose inside a yellow vertical rectangle. The H-B script is white. The background is black instead of white.
  • The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy (Pilot): Grim appears in a black vertical rectangle. The H-B script is in dark green. Like the Robot Jones variant, it was only seen on the pilot episode.
  • Cave Kids: A head shot of Baby Pebbles Flintstone inside a sky blue oval. The H-B script is yellow. Although the series aired in , the show originally used the "Comedy All-Stars" logo before it was replaced with this logo in
  • Tom & Jerry ("The Mansion Cat" short): Head shots of Tom & Jerry inside a malachite box on a periwinkle background. The H-B script is flamingo pink. This one has a more 3-D look to it.
  • Scooby-Doo: Scooby-Doo appears in a pink oval. The H-B script is turquoise. Like Uncle Gus, the background is black. This was used on the first four made-for-video Scooby-Doo movies produced by Warner Bros. Animation. There were no sound effects used. This was used from September 22, to October 9, Also, notably, this was one of the two versions to feature the AOL Time Warner byline from , as seen at the end of Scooby-Doo and the Cyber Chase, the other one seen on the Dexter's Laboratory "Greatest Adventures" VHS.

FX/SFX: None. This was designed by Corey McPherson Nash under Big Blue Dot.

Music/Sounds: A standard sound effect montage that was created for this logo, ending with H-B's weird “laughing” sound effect (performed by veteran H-B voice actor Daws Butler); the sound is first heard on the newer version of the Cartoon Network Studios logo, specifically the What-a-Cartoon! late produced shorts, such as Tales of Worm Paranoia, Zoonatiks, Snoots New Squat, Strange Things and newer prints of the two Malcolm and Melvin shorts produced in (the latter two had the All-Stars Comedy logo). The extended version has a synthesized whoosh sound as the H-B oval irises out, and the sound effect of the paper carrier on The Flintstones throwing the stone newspaper onto Fred's head. In , the sound effect montage was switched to a different one that also incorporated classic Looney Tunes sound effects, possibly because of the Time Warner merger.

Music/Sounds Variants:

  • No sounds for the Scooby-Doo variant.
  • On one episode of Johnny Bravo, different sounds are heard.
  • The Dino variant from the Cow and Chicken pilot uses the audio from the "Comedy" variant of the "All-Stars" logo.
  • For the Tom & Jerry variant and on Uncle Gus, the end theme plays over the logo.
  • On the Whatever Happened to Robot Jones? pilot, chicken noises are heard.
  • On the promo variant with Atom Ant, we hear a wind noise and Atom Ant says "So long! Keep healthy everybody!", then giggles.

Availability: Depending on the variant.

  • Dexter's Laboratory: Uncommon. It appears on season 2 episodes of said show when rerun on Boomerang and on season 2 DVD sets. It also plasters the Cartoon Network Studios logo on some airings of season 1 of said show.
  • Cow and Chicken: Uncommon. Both variants appear on said show which is available on DVD.
  • Johnny Bravo: Uncommon. The first variant appears on season 1 alongside its DVD release, and the second one appears on season 2, both of which air on Boomerang on some occasions, but not currently.
  • I Am Weasel: Very rare. The show doesn't air often as a standalone show, and so this variant isn't easy to find. the Region 4 DVD release might contain it though.
  • Tom & Jerry: Extremely rare. It only appears on the short "The Mansion Cat" which airs on Cartoon Network and Boomerang on very rare occasions.
  • Scooby-Doo: It appears at the end of the first 4 of the made-for-video Scooby-Doo movies after the credits sequence, those being Scooby-Doo on Zombie Island, Scooby-Doo and the Witches Ghost, Scooby-Doo and the Alien Invaders and Scooby-Doo and the Cyber Chase.
  • Robot Jones: Extinct. It only appeared on the original airing of the Whatever Happened to Robot Jones? pilot. Reruns of the pilot don't preserve this and it's unlikely that the show will ever air again on TV.
  • Billy and Mandy: Extremely rare. It only appears on the original pilot for The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy, which appears as a bonus on the season 1 DVD and was seen on recent CN airings (most notably on Cartoon Planet, where the logo along with the original credits were retained).
  • Cave Kids: Extinct. If Cave Kids ever re-airs on Boomerang or appears on the Boomerang streaming service, a print with the "Comedy All-Stars" logo is very likely to appear instead of this one.
  • Promo variant with Atom Ant: Ultra rare. It has been seen on the VHS of Tink the Little Dinosaur: Lights Out!.
  • Rest of the variants: Extinct. The rest of them were all one-shots that aired on What A Cartoon!. They are most likely to never air again after What-A-Cartoon! ended in

Editor's Note: Again, fairly simple, but sure to be memorable to anyone growing up with Cartoon Network in the late '90s and early s.

Final Note: After Scooby-Doo and the Cyber Chase was completed when Bill Hanna died, the animation studio was wholly folded into Warner Bros. Animation, while Cartoon Network Studios resurrected their name for their in-house productions originally made when CN Studios was a subsidiary of Hanna-Barbera. However, the Hanna-Barbera name was revived in with the next logo.

16th Logo (February 28, )

Hanna-Barbera Cartoons ().png

Nicknames: "Rainbow H-B II", "The Return of HB", "Hanna-Barbera Strikes Back!", "Welcome Back, Hanna-Barbera", "The Annoying HB Logo II", "H-B Without Scooby-Doo", "Rebooted HB"

Logo: Same concept as the 6th logo, except the colors are more vivid, the animation is smoother, and the last "HANNA-BARBERA" zooms at us a bit before morphing into an "HB" (in a similar style as the Taft-HB print logo). "HANNA-BARBERA CARTOONS" wipes in below.

Variant: A shortened version exists that just shows the finished "HB" logo and text, with the "HANNA-BARBERA" text still scrolling inside.

FX/SFX: Good animation and a nice throwback to the logo.

Music/Sounds: The opening or closing theme of the film or show.

Availability: So far the long version has only been seen on the direct-to-video movie The Jetsons & WWE Robo WrestleMania!. The short version also appears at the end of the new Wacky Races reboot on the Boomerang streaming service, and at the end of Yabba Dabba Dinosaurs! on Boomerang UK. Don't count on seeing this logo on anything Scooby-Doo related from the studio, as Warner generally classifies Scooby-Doo as a completely separate franchise from the rest of the H-B family. It also surprisingly does not appear on Jellystone! on HBO Max.

Editor's Note: A nice homage to the 6th logo overall.

Sours: https://closinglogosgroup.miraheze.org/wiki/Hanna-Barbera_Cartoons

Hanna-Barbera Cartoons

Music/Sounds Variant: On the Boomerang streaming service's print of Yogi's Ark Lark, the version of the Screen Gems "S from Hell" logo music plays under this logo, possibly due to poor editing/plastering.

Availability: Uncommon. It was last seen on most episodes of Wacky Races on Boomerang (it is plastered with the All-Stars "Comedy" logo on the DVD release and the Boomerang streaming service) and the no byline version was also seen on The Amazing Chan and the Chan Clan, Super Friends,the TV movie Yogi's Ark Lark, The Flintstone Comedy Show, and most episodes of The New Scooby-Doo Movies on DVD (though on the Boomerang streaming service, some episodes have it, others plaster it with the current Warner Bros. Television logo, and some cut off before the logo appears). The stand-alone variant was also originally seen on The Harlem Globetrotters animated series and the second season of Scooby-Doo, Where Are You? (the former was retained on TV Land airings in the early 's with the silent Paramount Domestic Television logo following, the latter is available on DVD and Blu-Ray). Though some episodes of Josie and the Pussycats have this plastered over with the bylineless version of "Swirling Star" and the "Comedy All Stars" logo on DVD and the Boomerang service, the same case was on The Warner Archive release of Josie & The Pussycats In Outer Space though this logo was retained on episode 16 and the Swirling Star was the variant instead. This logo is also seen on the Warner Archive released DVD's on shows such as the two animated series,Speed Buggy and Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kids. This was also recently spotted on The Adventures of Gulliver episode "Little Man of the Year" with the Taft byline.

Editor's Note: Another fairly abrupt Hanna-Barbera logo, and with the animation being more in-your-face, but is still bound to be very memorable to Hanna-Barbera cartoon fans. The remake is smoother, albeit cheap looking, but is strange to see it appear after something not resembling a Hanna-Barbera production (even if it features their characters).

Nicknames: "The H-B Box III", "Multiplying Rectangles"

Logo: A rare variant of the 3rd logo. It starts off with the formation of the H-B box from the 3rd logo (1st variant), but instead of the box zooming out, it becomes a capri while the background becomes red, then “a hanna-barbera production” in denim blue and the Taft byline/logo fade in. The “a" in the H-B box is on top of a denim blue box with a orange outline.

Variants:

  • There is a rare variant in which the box does zoom out instead of fading to the already formed logo, a la the initial version. There is no Taft byline/logo as well. This was seen in Where's Huddles?
  • On Boomerang reruns of the Scooby-Doo episode "Go Away Ghost Ship" the logo is sped up.

FX/SFX: The “multiplying rectangles”.

Music/Sounds: The fourth logo's music.

Music/Sounds Variants:

  • On an airing of The Scooby-Doo Show episode "Hang in There Scooby-Doo" on the Australian version of Cartoon Network used the "Swirling Star" music due to an editing error.
  • On Romanian dubbing prints of Dastardly & Muttley in Their Flying Machines, the logo is silent.

Availability: Uncommon. This logo was available on scattered H-B shows as well as the original first season of Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! Prior to , this logo was nearly impossible to find, mainly due to chronic plastering. Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! suffered this as well, first with a blacked out era or sometimes a blacked out era"Swirling Star" logo, then with the "Comedy" variant of the "All-Stars" logo when re-ran on TBS in and finally the “Action” variant of the “All-Stars” logo in This logo can be found on a few Hanna-Barbera DVD box sets, most notably Scooby-Doo, Where Are You!: The Complete First and Second Seasons, which means the logo is now more common than it was prior to the DVDs' release (it is also preserved on the Blu-Ray release, followed by the current WB Television logo, but is cut on the Boomerang streaming service's HD prints of the series). This is also spotted on DVD and Boomerang releases of The Perils of Penelope Pitstop, with the WB Television logo playing the theme in low tone following it. This was also originally seen on the short-lived The Cattanooga Cats but was plastered over with the "CGI Swirling Star" logo when it was rerun on Boomerang. It was also seen on Dastardly & Muttley in Their Flying Machines when last rerun on Boomerang. But strangely, the logo has been cut out on the DVD release and the Boomerang streaming service. The variant can be found on the Warner Archive DVD of Where's Huddles but Boomerang airings plastered this logo with the "CGI Swirling Star" too. Oddly enough, it appeared on a episode of The Scooby-Doo Show, as seen on a USA Network broadcast.


Editor's Note: An improvement over the previous H-B "box" logos, as it's less in-your-face and the animation is smoother, though the blue "H-B" makes the blue text hard to read.

Nickname: "Rainbow H-B"

Logo: We start on a pattern of five columns, each filled with the words “HANNA-BARBERA”. The words are colored so that they form a rainbow pattern. Suddenly, the words start disappearing, from the top starting on the 1st column, and from the bottom starting with the last column. The words disappear until one last “HANNA-BARBERA” is left. That enlarges and “morphs” into a skewed, stylized H-B, filled with a rolling rainbow pattern with numerous “HANNA-BARBERA”s in it. Below, the words “HANNA-BARBERA PRODUCTIONS, INC.” appear.

Trivia: This logo is used on backgrounds of the end titles of The Scooby-Doo Show (blue)and Dynomutt, Dog Wonder (red).

Byline: In , the logo does not enlarge. In this version, a Taft Broadcasting byline, sans logo this time, appears. Some post prints of H-B shows from this particular period have the Taft byline blacked out.

Variants:
  • A rare variant has been seen on only a couple of TV movies of the era, such as the live-action telefilm The Gathering. It was a still shot with more solid colors (yellow,orange, red, pink, violet, blue) and segmented lines running inside the design. Plus, it's horizontal. Also, the byline is still intact. It is mainly nicknamed as "Solid Rainbow H-B".
  • An extremely rare variant features the "H-B", in a more straightforward stencil font, more towards the top of the screen and a large lime green/olive-brown "77" in the same style underneath. There are no "HANNA-BARBERA"s in either figure. The variant begins with this design cascading and forming on-screen, followed by several "starbursts" appearing, and the whole scene then gives way to four small circles that join together and zoom in to become a giant rotating circle, surrounded by a string of flashing live-action lights. Within the circle appear several (fairly obscure) Hanna-Barbera cartoon characters: Precious Pupp, Mumbly, Atom Ant, Winsome Witch, Squiddly Diddly and Chief Winchley, Pa Rugg from The Hillbilly Bears, and Secret Squirrel. The circle and lights then disappear, and (to the beat of the sound effects in the music) a starburst "explodes" several times before the "HB77" logo forms again onscreen. At the bottom for much of the animation is a byline for "Dolphin Productions/New York", with Dolphin Productions, a New York-based company that incorporated the first computer-generated effects in TV logos and advertisements, being the production company behind this variant. This logo was only used in and was created as an interstitial for the Hanna-Barbera programming block "HB '77" that aired on Rede Globo in Brazil that year. Another variant is rumored to exist with an "HB 78" logo.

FX/SFX: The Scanimate “rainbow” effects used in both the columns and actual logo; the words being “wiped” away.


Music/Sounds: Usually just the end theme of the show. None for the TV movie variant. The "HB '77" variation has instrumental bits of the theme to the Tom & Jerry Show, complete with the sound effects heard in that show's intro sequence.

Music/Sounds Variants:

  • Some repeats would have the theme, which seems to be synchronized perfectly with the logo.
  • On the Warner Home Video DVD print of Scooby Goes Hollywood, the "Swirling Star" logo theme played. This was probably because since the special was from December , it most likely was used to plaster the "Swirling Star" logo. The Swirling Star music has also been heard on a recent Australian rerun of The Scooby-Doo Show episode "Creepy Cruise".

Availability: Uncommon. It's usually preserved on Hong Kong Phooey, The Super Friends Hour, Clue Club, Jabberjaw, Challenge of the Super Friends, Dynomutt: Dog Wonder, most of the final season of The Scooby-Doo Show, and some episodes of Yogi's Space Racewhenever someone decides to show them; however on some prints of the latter, the credits cut off early or they are plastered over with the "CGI Swirling Star", the same case was on Boomerang's airings of Galaxy Goof Ups. This was plastered by the , or Swirling Star logo on USA Network's USA Cartoon Express on such shows as Jabberjaw, Jana of the Jungle, Hong Kong Phooey, Clue Club, and The New Fred & Barney Show. It is also available on DVD releases of Hong Kong Phooey, seasons 1 & 3 ofThe Scooby-Doo Show (also available on Blu-Ray for season 3 only, with the current WB TV Distribution logo appearing after it), Dynomutt: Dog Wonder, and the Warner Archive release of Captain Caveman and The Teen Angels. This logo was also seen on the 1st season of The All-New Popeye Hour. Was also seen on The Tom & Jerry Show () before the MGM Television logo (it is blacked out on the Boomerang streaming service's prints of the series).

Editor's Note: A bit more advanced than Hanna-Barbera's "box" logos, though there is still a bit of their usual cheesiness when you slow down the final "HANNA-BARBERA" changing into the H-B graphic.

Nicknames: "Swirling Star", "Twisting Star", "Taft Swirling Star", "Rainbow Twist", "H-B Swirling Star"

Logo: On a black background, a white star swirls down from the top, leaving behind a rainbow trail. It then settles into the center of the screen as it twirls, occasionally shrinking and twisting, forming a circular trail. It then twists into the middle of the circle and comes to a stop. The words “Hanna-Barbera Productions” in Belwe Medium font appear below.

Trivia: Basically, this is the Taft swirling star as seen on the Taft International Pictures logo, only rainbow colored. The logo was designed by Saul Bass.

Bylines:
  • September 8, January 31, “A TAFT BROADCASTING COMPANY” (in a white font)
  • September 12, May 20, “A DIVISION OF THE TAFT ENTERTAINMENT COMPANY”
    1. In , the byline was altered/amended with "A DIVISION OF" over "THE TAFT ENTERTAINMENT COMPANY".
    2. In , the byline appears in a large yellow font, and the logo appears smaller in this version.
  • June 7, "A GREAT AMERICAN BROADCASTING COMPANY"
  • Post prints of H-B shows from this era often have the Taft byline blacked out.
Variants:
  • In , a special version of this was used at the end of Jetsons: The Movie. This features the same animation, but “Hanna-Barbera” is written in the familiar cursive “script” font, first introduced in This variant also features a Great American byline, and is the only H-B logo to do so.
  • Beginning in , Hanna-Barbera created an opening logo to use at the beginning of some of their shows. It’s the same as the closing logo but it fades in during the middle of the animation. The text is changed, “Hanna-Barbera” is larger, and a small yellow “PRESENTS” is shown below. This opening variant (the version with the regular music) can still be found at the beginning of every episode of The Smurfs on Boomerang.
  • There is a rare variant of this logo seen on some cartoons, in which the trail is dark red and the byline is nearly invisible. This is likely due to film deterioration, which is quite unusual at this time (compared to the Rankin-Bass logo from ). This was used only in the early 's and is nicknamed "The Red Swirling Star".
  • There is also an extremely rare still opening variant seen on the feature film GoBots: Battle of the Rock Lords, in which there is a large "A Hanna-Barbera Production" byline and the logo is tiny in size. This same variant also appeared at the end of the Hanna-Barbera feature film Heidi's Song.
  • On an older print of one episode of The Scooby-Doo Show, the logo is moved up a bit so that the Taft byline cannot be seen.
  • A rare variant where the Swirling Star plays as usual, but it ends with the letters "HB" in black on top of the star itself and the star itself zooms in to make way for the words "HANNA BARBERA," which zooms out from the center screen to flash in multiple colors before ending in a red color. The music accompanying it is score music from A Pup Named Scooby-Doo. This is seen on the VHS tape Top Cat - T.C.'s Back in Town.
  • On the TV special A Yabba-Dabba-Doo Celebration: 50 Years of Hanna-Barbera, an I.A.T.S.E. bug appears below the logo.
  • On a earthquake preparation video made for the Los Angeles Earthquake Preparation Program, the text on the bottom says "Hanna-BarberaPRESENTS" with the text below in a Helvetica font. The white star then suddenly zooms in and engulfs the screen, and flashes to the video's introduction. At the end, the "Swirling Star" is smaller and the text says "A HANNA-BARBERA PRODUCTION FOR CITY OF LOS ANGELES EARTHQUAKE PREPARATION PROGRAM".
  • Another dark/deteriorated variant was seen on a recent Boomerang airing the Smurfs episode "The Smurfs' Time Capsule", where the trail was almost entirely invisible. Only the star and the text could be seen.

FX/SFX: The star and residue trail. Scanimate effects.


Music/Sounds: Best described as “futuristic synthesized music". We start out with ascending and descending chimes mixed with a "whoosh" sound with each revolution of the star. When the star stops, the entire thing culminates in a somewhat gentle, but abrupt, acoustic guitar and bass chord as the chimes finish in the background. This was written by Hoyt Curtin.

Music/Sounds Variants:
  • The opening variant used a sweeping chime sound, though s Jetsons episodes feature a rendition of the Jetsons' doorbell (the “Meet George Jetson” piece of the theme rendered in chimes).
  • The variant used a majestic version of the "Meet George Jetson" theme, in the style of TheSimpsons theme song (or more precisely, Danny Elfman).
  • On VHS releases of episodes of The Greatest Stories: Tales from the Bible, the logo is silent.
  • Some shows have appeared with the first variant with a blacked-out byline, but with the music from the 4th logo. This was chiefly used to update the logo on Scooby-Doo, Where Are You!, but has spread to other shows as well, including post reruns of Casper's First Christmas and was also spotted on an episode of Josie and the Pussycats. This instance also happened on a episode of The Smurfs, entitled "The Adventures of Robin Smurf" and another instance on a U.S. syndicated rerun episode of The Smurfs. This variant was sort of common, but became rare when Turner updated the prints of Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! in , and tacked on the "Action All-Stars" logo.
  • An a Canadian VHS tape of The Three Musketeers, the logo is silent, however when the logo freezes, a note from some other cartoon theme song plays then the ordinary synthesizer music begins.
  • On The All-New Popeye Hour on The Family Channel (now ABC Family), some reruns of the episodes would havethis logo and the music on it played in sped-up mode due to time compressing.
  • On releases of The Greatest Adventure: Stories From the Bible, early 90's prints of the Godzilla cartoon, Boomerang airings of CB Bears, the ending of the show's theme plays under the logo.
  • There is a high-toned variant that was seen at the end of one U.S. Boomerang rerun episode of The Super Globetrotters, due to the U.S. Boomerang's prints of The Super Globetrotters airing in PAL format, but on the Warner Archive DVD releases, this is played in the normal tone.
  • On the theatrical re-release of Hey There, It's Yogi Bear, the film's opening music cue plays over the "presents" variation of the logo. At the end, the standard version of the logo plays silent.

Availability: Common in its “unaltered” form, though many prints still have the logo's Taft bylines blacked out or bylineless. Currently seen on The Smurfs on Boomerang, and was also shown on Super Friends: The Legendary Super Powers Show, the first two seasons of The Snorks, The Yogi Bear Show, some episodes of Josie and the Pussycats, Josie and the Pussycats in Outer Space(kept on episodes 6 and 8 on the Warner Archive DVD release), the first season of Scooby-Doo and Scrappy-Doo (with the low tone WBTVD logo following), 4 episodes of Galaxy Goof Ups, most episodes of TheRichie Rich Show,a few existing s syndicated remastered episodes of Top Cat,the season of The Jetsons, and the short lived The 13 Ghosts of Scooby-Doo when last rerun on Boomerang, though 13 Ghosts retained this logo on it's DVD release and on the Boomerang streaming service, the episodes of The Jetsons does not retain this on remastered prints due to plastering by the Comedy All Stars logo. Very interestingly, this logo (w/ Taft byline) appears right after the "Zooming H-B" on the DVD releases of The Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm Show, and The Flintstones Comedy Show. It also recently appeared after the "Zooming H-B" logo on the former's episode "Focus Foolery" when last rerun on Boomerang as well. The H-B Presents logo with the "Meet George Jetson" chimes is rare and so far it has been spotted on many The Jetsonsepisodes on the Boomerang streaming service, and has also appeared on airings on Teletoon Canada. The blacked-out byline version appears at the end of Boomerang and DVD prints of Yogi and the Invasion of the Space Bears and Scooby-Doo and the Reluctant Werewolf, overseas airings of the latter film have the next logo plastering this one, and it is cut from the Boomerang streaming service's print of the film while the Warner Archive DVD release of the former plasters this logo with the 10th logo. There are also some prints with this logo (with b/o byline) actually plastering the next logo. The film deterioration variants are rare, but were last seen on some episodes of Josie and the Pussycats and The New Scooby Movies episode "Scooby-Doo Meets Batman & Robin". The "A Hanna-Barbera Production" variant is extremely rare as well. On The Scooby-Doo Showepisode "Jeepers! It's the Jaguaro!", it has the logo version of the Swirling Star plastering the H-B logo. Sadly, this plasters logos on VHS releases of Tom & Jerry Kids.This was also seen on the TV special/pilot episode of Pound Puppies. The "presents" variant was also seen on Challenge of the GoBots andThe Flintstone Kids, as well as at the TV movie Scooby-Doo and the Reluctant Werewolf and least one episode of Wake, Rattle & Roll (odd for the latter three, considering the logo was no longer used by this point); it was also used as part of the intro for The Funtastic World of Hanna-Barbera (the syndicated cartoon block). The logo has also seen on some pre-Turner prints of The Scooby-Doo Show on the Australian version of Cartoon Network. It was also previously seen on season 1 reruns of Shirt Tales and plastered over with the "CGI Swirling Star" on season 2 reruns on Boomerang. This version, the "CGI Swirling Star" and the "All Stars Comedy" logos below have plastered the H-B Rainbow logo on Boomerang's reruns of Laff-a-Lympics, while DVD prints use the "All Stars Comedy" logo. This was retained on early 's TV Land airings of The Fonz & The Happy Days Gang which followed the Paramount Domestic Television logo (which that logo was silent except for 2 episodes). It has also been seen on some episodes of Amigo and Friends.


Editor's Note: Perhaps Hanna-Barbera's most famous and memorable closing logo. It's still a favorite among people who grew up watching TV during this time, or watching Hanna-Barbera's shows on Cartoon Network in the '90s.



8th Logo
(September 6, ; December 15, ; November 18, July 12, )

<img align="bottom" alt="Hanna-Barbera Productions ()" height="" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/1/keHOJkfnbwmfDW-kcfTR8w/GWH" title="Hanna-Barbera Productions ()" width=""/><img align="bottom" alt="Hanna-Barbera Productions ()" height="" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/3/cfffb4ddcca8dc5/GWH" title="Hanna-Barbera Productions ()" width=""/><img align="bottom" alt="Hanna Barbera Productions ()" height="" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/1/m9OBqAitB7upX05fZpsLKQ/GWH" title="Hanna Barbera Productions ()" width=""/><img align="bottom" alt="Hanna Barbera Productions *Video Copyright Variant* ()" height="" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/3/eb5be44eff60a8dfae21bbfdde/GWH" title="Hanna Barbera Productions *Video Copyright Variant* ()" width=""/>


Logo
: An updated version of the previous logo, but now done in CGI. The trail is now metallic, and the star now realistically twists and turns and has a nice shine effect. The text and the respective company byline are in a different font and are slightly smaller.

Trivia: Airings of the Johnny Bravo episode "Under the Big Flop" on Cartoon Network used the version of this logo instead of the standard "Character Portrait II" logo, possibly due to an editing mistake.

Bylines:
  • September 6, July 16, "A DIVISION OF THE TAFT ENTERTAINMENT COMPANY"
  • September 10, ; December 15, (Bylineless; Great American Broadcasting era)
  • November 18, February 9, , April 3, , April 20, "A Time Warner Company"
  • April 27, July 12, "An AOL Time Warner Company"
Variants:
  • The version often has the logo slightly enlarged.
  • On some shows, the bylineless version has the logo shifted up.
  • A still variant was seen on The Pirates of Dark Water and on episodes of The Greatest Adventure: Stories From the Bible, with all names and bylines completely blacked out and replaced with "HANNA-BARBERA, INC." in a generic font. This also sometimes plastered the custom H-B logo at the end of Fish Police.
  • When The Powerpuff Girls premiered on November 18, , the trend for most H-B/Cartoon Network shows was to get a custom “Character Portrait II” logo. Bucking the trend, PPG used an updated version of this logo. All names and bylines are completely blacked out, and instead the text “HANNA-BARBERA CARTOONS” in Haettenschweiler, which is the font for the show's end credits, and the Time Warner byline (changed to AOL Time Warner in ) are used. Plus, the logo becomes static after the logo forms. This lasted until ; post-movie episodes of PPG featured a custom version of the Cartoon Network Studios logo. This variant also appeared at the end of the Dexter's Laboratory special, "Ego Trip" (that version featured the Cartoon Network logo zooming out of the star's top point, with a result much like how the logo appeared after the "Character Portrait II" logo).
  • Sometimes the regular version of this logo also carries a blacked out byline where the Taft byline is usually at.
  • Copyright dates may be substituted for the "Hanna-Barbera Productions" text.
  • An out-of-sync version exists; the music comes in slightly too early on this variant, so the logo freezes and the text appears about halfway through the final note of the theme. This variant was spotted on a rerun of The Jetsons, on the third-season episode "Crime Games".

FX/SFX: Same as above.

Music/Sounds: Same as the previous logo.

Music/Sounds Variants:
  • The closing theme of the show was used on shows such as the recent reruns of Jana of the Jungle (due to plastering), short-lived series The Completely Mental Misadventures of Ed Grimley, the final season of The Smurfs, The Flintstone Kids' Just Say No Special, and Cartoon Network and Boomerang airings of The Smurfs Christmas special "Tis the Season to Be Smurfy."
  • On Boomerang's prints of The Flintstone Comedy Show, the logo used the end theme of the show (carried on from the logo which preceded this variant), and halfway through, it cuts to the regular music already in progress.
  • On The Powerpuff Girls episode "Dream Scheme/You Snooze, You Lose" and the Dexter's Laboratory special "Ego Trip", two recordings of the same theme are playing simultaneously, making the music a little louder.

Availability: Uncommon. The original version was last seen on most episodes of Galaxy Goof Ups, seasons 3 and 4 of The Snorks,post-season 5 episodes of The Smurfs, Fantastic Max, season 1 of Pound Puppies, A Pup Named Scooby-Doo,and The Pirates of Dark Water when rerun on Boomerang (though A Pup Named Scooby-Doo preserves it on DVD releases and the Boomerang streaming service) and used to be seen on some episodes of Scooby Doo and Scrappy Doo (which plasters the "Star" and the Ruby-Spears logo) when aired on Cartoon Network in the late 90's to mid s. The version can be seen on the first four seasons of The Powerpuff Girls (up until the episode "Forced Kin") on most reruns and DVD releases of the show. It can be spotted at the end of the Scooby-Doo TV movies Scooby-Doo Meets the Boo Brothers () (except for the Boomerang streaming service's print) and Scooby-Doo and the Ghoul School (), overseas prints of Scooby-Doo and the Reluctant Werewolf have this logo as well. Also added to the end of some s shows with no logo (very common in the past, but rather rare nowadays), and is sometimes seen at the end of shows that originally had an older H-B logo or one of the early s in-credit logo variations, but that is rather rare as well, though this has recently happened on Boomerang's reruns of the short-lived Cattanooga Cats. However, an instance of that was spotted on a May 8, airing of the pilot episode of Yogi's Space Race. The version with the Taft byline still exists on other shows such as The Flintstone Kids (which was plastered on the WBHV Saturday Morning DVD by the "Comedy" logo) and Popeye and Son among shows so far. This was also seen on S3 episodes of The Jetsons from as well as the revival of Jonny Quest. It was also spotted on Yo, Yogi! when reran on a foreign Boomerang.


Editor's Note: It's a nice CGI re-imagining of the logo above, which was a good achievement for its time, but the end result doesn't look as appealing as the previous logo. While it never reached the popularity of its predecessor, it's a fairly remembered logo for people who grew up during this period or those watching Cartoon Network/Boomerang reruns of this era of TV programming.



9th Logo
(September 10, )

<img align="bottom" alt="Hanna-Barbera-The Smurfs ()" height="" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/1/z4mk3Jh9tVOnMdpcbnjd8Q/GWH" title="Hanna-Barbera-The Smurfs ()" width=""/><img align="bottom" alt="Hanna-Barbera-The Smurfs ()" height="" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/1/IEQPY-FF5et02H3Ljng6vA/GWH" title="Hanna-Barbera-The Smurfs ()" width=""/><img align="bottom" alt="Hanna-Barbera-Jetsons: The Movie ()" height="" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/1/eBcJwkQVIcutrosR46QQHA/GWH" title="Hanna-Barbera-Jetsons: The Movie ()" width=""/><img align="bottom" alt="Hanna-BarberaTurner Entertainment Co.-Tom & Jerry Kids ()" height="" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/1/cfnu7bbVnwO7jaThS2OhKg/GWH" title="Hanna-BarberaTurner Entertainment Co.-Tom & Jerry Kids ()" width=""/>


Logo: Basically, an in-credit variant of the 7th logo next to the cursive “Hanna-Barbera” logo. This is superimposed over the credits, like the earliest H-B logos.

Variant: On the final two seasons of The Smurfs, as well as the opening credits of Jetsons: The Movie, there is no swirling star. For the opening to Jetsons: The Movie, we see a series of CGI musical notes (the first four notes of the Jetsons theme), which turns around to reveal the cursive "Hanna-Barbera" logo and the words "A" and "PRODUCTION" fade in. Then the camera zooms past the logo.

FX/SFX: None for The Smurfs variant. For the Jetsons: The Movie variant, a combination of CGI animation and 2D animation.

Music/Sounds: The closing theme of the show. On Jetsons: The Movie, it's the intro theme of the film.

Availability: Rare. Seen on the final two seasons of The Smurfs as well as on the opening credits of Jetsons: The Movie and season two of Tom and Jerry Kids (as a dual credit with Turner Entertainment Co., though Turner Broadcasting, the parent of TEC, who would ironically end up owning them in ) which is sadly plastered by the previous logo on VHS releases, but is preserved on Boomerang's streaming service. The Jetsons: The Movie version is the most widely available.

Nicknames: "Happy Birthday Fred!", "The Flintstones 30th Anniversary logo"

Logo: Against a sky-blue background, Fred Flintstone, in apurple "caveman tuxedo", wavesa 'magic cane' to make a box with the words “THE FIRST30 YEARS” inside itappear next to him. He puts away the cane and proceeds to tap-dance in front of apurple baseball diamond-like shape.. Above that in an arc is a sign reading “THE FLINTSTONES”, with "THE" in a small black triangle above the arc. Below is the Hanna-Barbera script logo in blue.

Trivia: This logo was created in celebration of the 30th anniversary of The Flintstones' premiere back in

Variants:
  • One version (possibly only a print logo) used a background of animated TV static. It has Fred in a black caveman tuxedo, the Hanna-Barbera script logo in yellow and a red baseball diamond shape.
  • Home Video releases have the Hanna-Barbera Home Video logo in place of the normal logo.

FX/SFX: Fred tap-dancing, which is typical H-B animation of the time. The logo was designed by Scott Shaw and animated by Mike Kazaleh.


Music/Sounds: The ending of the show’s theme, or a synth instrumental of the Flintstones theme with a "zap" and a drumbeat.

Availability: Extremely rare. It was last seen on the first season of Tom and Jerry Kids on Boomerang, and it can still be seen on the Boomerang streaming service's prints of the show, but VHS releases plastered it with the 9th logo. More shows that carried this logo are Wake, Rattle & Roll (with the synth theme),Yo Yogi!, and the first season of Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventures which can currently be seen on Hulu. Gravedale High also used this logo, preceding the NBC Productions logo.

Editor's Note: A pretty good way to commemorate the 30th anniversary of The Flintstones.

Logo: In-credit like the 9th logo. We see the words “H-B Production Co.” This could be in any font; in many examples it appears in the H-B script font or in a different script font.

Trivia: First seen on The Pirates of Dark Water, last seen on I Yabba-Dabba Do!

Variants: In addition to the fonts, there are many variants of this:
  • On The Pirates of Dark Water, there is only an opening variant that simply has the words "Hanna-Barbera" in a Maya blue medieval type font.
  • On season 3 of Tom and Jerry Kids,there is a dual credit with Turner Entertainment Co., the copyright owner of Tom and Jerry.
  • On the first season of the animated revival of The Addams Family, "H-B Production Co." is below a dark-colored "Hanna-Barbera" script logo, and the entire thing is surrounded by cobwebs on a black background.
  • On Fish Police, "Hanna-Barbera, Inc." is below the normal script logo on an underwater background.
  • On Capitol Critters, "Produced in Association with" is above.
  • On Monster in My Pocket: The Big Scream, we see a clip, then Hanna-Barbera script appears after the monster raises its hat with its antenna, the script moving closer with "H-B PRODUCTION CO." with electric trails on Hanna-Barbera script.

FX/SFX: None.


Music/Sounds: The closing theme of the show or none.

Availability: Very rare. The Addams Family variant was last seen when Boomerang reran the series every October, and is also seen on VHS releases of the show. It was also seen on I Yabba-Dabba-Do!, which also preserves the logo on Boomerang and VHS. Whenever The Pirates of Dark Water aired on Boomerang, the logo was removed, but the VHS copies of the series keep it. The Fish Police variant was plastered with the "Hanna Barbera Inc." still CGI Swirling Star variant when Cartoon Network UK last aired the series many years ago. Capitol Critters also had this logo, but that show hasn't been seen since the late '90s.

Nicknames: "Character Portrait", "All-Star Prototype", "HB All-Stars"

Logo: On a colored background, we see a partial picture of a Hanna-Barbera star inside a geometric shape. Somewhere inside that picture is the “Hanna-Barbera” script logo.

Trivia
: First seen on 2 Stupid Dogs, last seen on the final episode of SWAT Kats: The Radical Squadron entitled, "Unlikely Alloys".

Custom Variants: This was customized for each show produced by H-B during this era, and is available on only that specified show or TV movie:
  • 2 Stupid Dogs: There are two variants for this show: the opening had Little Dog in front of Big Dog laughing in a red vertical rectangle, with the "Hanna-Barbera" text yellow and angled vertically on the right side (at degrees clockwise), and "PRESENTS" is below the logo (all of this zooms in). This logo later zooms in to the show's opening. The closing however, has the rectangle tilted so that it puts the "Hanna-Barbera" text at an angle, "PRESENTS" is removed, and the rectangle is raspberry-colored. Both variants use a white background. On at least one episode of this show, the end logo was completely vertical and applause was heard.
  • SWAT Kats: A grinning picture of one of the Kats inside a light blue oval (T-Bone, opening variant; for the first season, it cross-fades into the intro; in the second season it flashes with energy, then fades into a shot of T-Bone, in his civilian identity, working on a car using a blow torch) or vertical rectangle (Razor, closing variant). A yellow-green “Hanna-Barbera” is seen, slanted and near the top. The background is either a dark blue-black gradient on the opening variant, or a dark blue-light blue gradient on the closing variant.
  • Jonny Quest: A headshot of Jonny Quest in a vertical magenta rectangle. A green “Hanna-Barbera”, on an angle, is somewhere near the top. The background is dark turquoise.
  • The Addams Family: A headshot of Uncle Fester in a vertical pistachio-colored rectangle. A blue-purple "Hanna-Barbera", turned degrees clockwise, is on the right. This is on a fuchsia background.
  • The Halloween Tree: A headshot of Mr. Moundshroud in a tomato-colored oval. A yellow "Hanna-Barbera" is near the bottom of the oval. The background is a gradient midnight blue (which seems vaguely similar to the one in the SWAT Kats opening variant).
  • Fred: A headshot of Fred Flintstone inside a purple rectangle. A blue "HANNA-BARBERA" on angle facing the top. The background is black.
  • Santa Fred: A headshot of Fred, in Santa hat and outfit, inside a blue rectangle. The background inside the shape is blue, with snow against it. A yellow “Hanna-Barbera”, slanted down, is near the top. The background is green, red or blue.
  • Droopy, Master Detective: A headshot of Droopy inside a solid blue rectangle. A yellow "Hanna-Barbera" is on the side. This is on a black-blue gradient background.
  • Dino:A headshot of Dino the Dinosaur in a light blue rectangle. A yellow "Hanna-Barbera" is on the side. The background is dark blue.
  • Yogi Bear: A headshot of a grinning Yogi Bear inside a rose bonbon rectangle. A tangerine-yellow "Hanna-Barbera" is on the side. This is on a solid blue background.
  • The Jetsons: A headshot of George Jetson with a huge smile inside of a pistachio-colored rectangle with a pink "Hanna-Barbera" on its side. The background is hot pink.

FX/SFX: Depends. The closing variants are still, but for the opening variants, it's the zooming in for the opening 2 Stupid Dogs logo or the cross-fade and/or flashing to the intro in the opening SWAT Kats logo.


Music/Sounds: A montage of sound effects from the company’s classic extensive library of sound effects (which, ironically, Hanna-Barbera was beginning to stop using around this time in their cartoons). It’s different for each logo. Sometimes the opening and closing themes of the show play over the logo instead. On SWAT Kats, for the intro variants, it has a heavy metal tune (the beginning of the intro), along with electrical noises during the 2nd season; the first season has a deep bass note. On the opening variant for 2 Stupid Dogs, a brief drumroll is heard, followed by alarm-like kazoos that begin the opening theme.

Music/Sounds Variants:
  • The "Comedy" sound effect montage from the 14th logo is heard over this logo at the end of the infamous TV movie Scooby-Doo in Arabian Nights.
  • On Romanian dubbing prints of Droopy Master Detective, the logo is silent.

Availability: All the logos' rarity are different, but as a whole, uncommon:

  • 2 Stupid Dogs: Rare; it's preserved on the 2 Stupid Dogs DVD set from Warner Archive.
  • Jonny Quest: Rare, was last seen on all season four and five episodes of The New Adventures of Captain Planet when previously rerun on Boomerang. It was also seen on some prints of Jonny Quest from the early '90s.
  • SWAT Kats: Uncommon. It was last seen on reruns of said show on Boomerang, along with the VHS tapes and the DVDs from Warner Archive.
  • The Addams Family: Extremely rare. It's seen on some VHS tapes of the animated adaptation of said show, and remains intact on some airings on Boomerang.
  • The Halloween Tree: Rare. It's only seen on the said special, which is available on VHS and DVD through Warner Archive, and remains intact whenever Boomerang re-airs the special.
  • Fred: Rare, It is known to appear on the VHS tape The Flintstones: Wacky Inventions and may have appeared on '90s prints of said show.
  • Santa Fred: Uncommon. The green variant is seen on The Town Santa Forgot, the red variant on A Flintstone Family Christmas, while the blue variant is seen on A Flintstones Christmas Carol, all of which are available on VHS and are available on the Boomerang streaming service.
  • Droopy, Master Detective: It was only seen on said show, but it can be found on Boomerang's streaming service with the logo intact.
  • Dino: Rare. It's only seen at the end of the Flintstones special Hollyrock-a-Bye-Baby, which is available on VHS.
  • Yogi Bear: Uncommon. It's seen on Yogi the Easter Bear and the infamous Scooby-Doo's Arabian Nights, the former airing on Boomerang every Easter, the latter airing on Boomerang occasionally, and both are available on both VHS, DVD and Boomerang's streaming service. It was also seen on some prints of Yogi Bear from the '90s.
  • The Jetsons: Extinct. It was only seen on prints of said show from the early '90s.

Editor's Note: An interesting and memorable way to rebrand the cartoon studio starting in the '90s.

Nicknames: “Animated All-Stars", "HB All-Stars II"

Logo: Up against a black background, a famous Hanna-Barbera star appears in a colored oval with the byline "H-B PRODUCTION CO." below in white. This was an opening logo used before a program.

Variants:
  • Muttley from Wacky Races and Dastardly & Muttley, comes up in an orangeoval and does his trademark snicker as the "Hanna-Barbera" script logo "writes" itself onscreen in copper letters.
  • Jonny Quest (utilizing some sort of arm device) is seen in a blue oval with the "Hanna-Barbera" script logo shining in copper letters.

FX/SFX: The character appearing and the text writing/shining. This was done by Hatmaker Films in Boston, MA.


Music/Sounds: We hear Muttley's famous laugh, and as the Hanna-Barbera script logo is appearing, we hear a small clarinet piece (an archival music cue from H-B's music library, written by Hoyt Curtin.) On the Jonny Quest version, just the end theme to the special.

Availability: The Muttley version is seen at the start of the infamous TV special Scooby-Doo in Arabian Nights, which occasionally airs on Boomerang, but is cut on most home video releases and on the Boomerang streaming service. It also appeared on a UK Scooby-Doo VHS called Scooby-Doo: Bumper Edition, a Bulgarian VHS called The Jetsons - The First Episodes and at the start of the Flintstones special Hollyrock-a-Bye Baby. The Jonny Quest version was only seen on Jonny's Golden Quest,and was kept intact on a Boomerang airing.

Nicknames
: “All-Stars”, "H-B (Comedy/Action) Stars", "HB All-Stars III," "Kabong!"

Logo: On a blurry white background with several colorful abstract shapes flying about, we see a clear square/oval that provides a “clear” view of the flying shapes; the square/oval has the Hanna-Barbera Script logo embossed in it at the top. Suddenly, we see some of Hanna-Barbera’s most famous stars running through the logo, as the square/oval begins to rotate. At the end, one of the stars ends up coming towards the logo, ending in a very extreme close-up of the star. A very small Turner byline (with Turner's own logo) appears in the lower right. Depending on the show genre, one of these two similar but very distinct variants of this logo is used; one for Hanna-Barbera comedy shows, and the other for Hanna-Barbera action shows. The stars, “music”, and logo shape differed depending on the logo. Here are the stars for each version of the logo, in the order that they appear:
  • Comedy: The "Hanna-Barbera" script logo is yellow and in a blue rectangle:
  1. Fred Flintstone (as if running or sliding or something)
  2. Yogi Bear (grinning)
  3. Huckleberry Hound (diving or falling)
  4. Dino
  5. George Jetson (with a very classic “what?” expression)
  6. Elroy Jetson (flying in a pod; the same animation seen in the famous Jetsons open)
  7. Barney Rubble (very hidden, you have to look close to find him)
  8. El Kabong (Quick Draw McGraw’s Zorro-esque alter-ego)
  9. Scooby-Doo (with a weird “craning neck” animation)
  10. Fred (zooms towards the logo; extreme close-up of his face)
  • Action: The "Hanna-Barbera" script logo is sky blue and in a gray oval:
  1. Bandit (Jonny Quest’s dog)
  2. Atom Ant
  3. Jonny Quest (in his trademark black shirt)
  4. Dr. Benton Quest (Jonny’s dad)
  5. The Thing (yes, of the Fantastic Four, and H-B did a series of the Fantastic Four in in conjunction with Marvel Comics, even though H-B doesn’t even own the characters!)
  6. Zandor (firing an arrow)
  7. Space Ghost
  8. Birdman
  9. Zok, the Laser Dragon creature from The Herculoids
  10. Jonny Quest with kung-fu like outfit (another zoom; like he’s kicking into the camera)
Trivia: This logo was designed and animated by <a href="https://vimeo.com/" target="_self">Fred Seibert</a>. First seen on SWAT Kats: The Radical Squadron. Last seen on the Malcom and Melvin short "Babe He Calls Me".

Variants:
  • A still variant of the "Comedy" logo was also shown on the cartoon incarnation of Dumb and Dumber, with a small "In association with" text below; the New Line Television logo would follow.
  • Later episodes of The Real Adventures of Jonny Quest had this logo bylineless.
  • A version of the "Comedy All-Stars" logo has a variant with the Turner byline strangely blacked out.

FX/SFX: Animation of various H-B characters inside the square/oval and background, the shape slowly turning, the shine on the shape, and byline appearing. This was done by Charlex Studios.


Music/Sounds: Like the last logo, classic H-B sound effects, but there is more than one used during the logo, and they are arranged to create a neat “tune”. The music differs depending on the logo:
  • Comedy starts off with the weird horn sound effect from The Flintstones and The Jetsons, as we hear the sound usually heard as an H-B character starts to run away playing underneath. Then we hear a "boing" sound, several comical "fighting" sound effects, and finally the "kabong" sound of Quick Draw McGraw/El Kabong's guitar broken and dent over someone's head.
  • Action features a 60s bass riff playing throughout. First we hear a screeching sound like a cartoon pterodactyl might make, a jet flying, an elephant trumpeting, and finally a loud low-pitched gong.
Music/Sounds Variants:
  • On the Romanian dubbing print of the Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! episode "A Night of Fright is No Delight", the music from the "Zooming" logo is heard due to an editing mistake.
  • On the Polish dubbing print of The Addams Family episode "Little Big Thing/Little Bad Riding Hood/Metamorphosister", the music from the Turner Entertainment Co. "CGI Globe" logo (the short variant) is heard due to an editing error.
  • On recent Cartoon Network CEE airings of The Scooby-Doo Show, the music from the end credits plays for a few seconds, then it cuts to a high-pitched version of the "Swirling Star" music. This is due to a split-screen formatting error.
  • Most TV prints of the Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! episode "Never Ape an Ape Man" have the Action variant appearing with the audio from the "Comedy" version, most likely due to an editing mistake.
  • There is a low toned variant of the "Comedy" logo that appeared on the Top Cat episode "The $1,, Derby" and The Flintstones episodes "Bamm-Bamm" and "The Hatrocks and the Gruesomes".
  • On a few shows, the closing theme was used, such as the Boomerang streaming service's prints of The Richie Rich Show.
  • On one episode of The Flintstones, called "The Big Move", and on a overseas Boomerang airing of a pre un-restored print of a episode of The Jetsons, the "Swirling Star" sound was used over the "Comedy" version, both due to editing mistakes. However, Me-TV airings of "The Big Move" have only the first half of the "Swirling Star" music before the "Comedy" version's soundtrack is joined in progress.
  • On some Romanian dubbing prints of The Perils of Penelope Pitstop, the music from the "Zooming" logo along with the Warner Bros. Television theme plays over the whole logo.

Availability: Common, due to the being the chief means of plastering, though not as bad as you might think; it was typically on “new” post prints of the most popular shows, mostly '60s shows that had an in-credit logo and Screen Gems logo/text. In most cases, they match the right logo with the right show; the exception are the prints of Scooby-Doo, Where Are You!, which replace the "H-B Box" and "Swirling Star" with the "Action All-Stars" logo, however when TBS aired Where Are You! in , the "Comedy" logo was used. Warner Bros. still uses this logo today to plaster older H-B logos on certain newer prints. The "Comedy" variant also appeared on Cartoon Network Pan-European prints of the animated revival of The Addams Family preceded by the 11th logo. The "Action" variant also appeared on The Scooby-Doo Show on the episode "A Menace in Venace"by plastering the "H-B" logo on Boomerang. The "Comedy" variant was also seen on 2 Stupid Dogs (season 2), and at the end of cartoons produced in (with the exception of the short Awfully Lucky), airing from to on The What-a-Cartoon Show (later rebranded as The Cartoon Cartoon Show). The appropriate variants can also be spotted on some DVDs of H-B cartoons, such as The Flintstones, The Jetsons, Wacky Races, Valley of the Dinosaurs, Thundarr the Barbarian, The Funky Phantom, Josie & the Pussycats, Josie & the Pussycats In Outer Space, Paw Paws, Sky Commanders, and the version of The Addams Family. The "Comedy" variant also appeared on Boomerang and Me-TV reruns of The Flintstones, the version of Scooby-Doo and Scrappy-Doo and on the Dr. Seuss specialDaisy-Head Mayzieon VHS. The "Action" variant also plastered the "CGI Swirling Star" on Boomerang reruns of the version of Jonny Quest; while the "Comedy All-Stars" variant also plastered the "Swirling Star" on a few episodes and on remastered prints of the s version of The Jetsons and the "Zooming H-B" logo and the WBTV logo on Pan-European prints of The Perils of Penelope Pitstop. The "Action" variant was first used on SWAT Kats and the fifth season of The New Adventures of Captain Planet, and can be seen on the Warner Archive DVD release. Right now, you can find this logo on MeTV whenever they air The Flintstones.


Editor's Note: The logo utilizes a nifty combination of 2-D animation (the characters) with cool 3-D elements (the H-B shape). Despite this, this logo can be considered annoyingby some for plastering over previous (and even later) logos, a practice Warner Bros. continues to do today. Still, it's neat to see all the characters.

Nicknames:"Character Portrait II", "HB All-Stars IV", "H-B/CN All-Stars"

Logo: Like the 12th logo, a still of an H-B star in a shape, usually an oval. The star is always the one that has been featured in the show that has just ended, so there are quite a number of variations (some variations have 2 or more stars). The background is almost alwayswhite. Below the logo, there is usually a Time Warner byline.

Trivia: First seen as an in-credit logo on The What-a-Cartoon! Show, the standalone version was first seen on the short The Chicken from Outer Space, and first seen regularly on the premiere ofCow & Chicken. However, the Dino variant debuted in<a href="https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/originals/76/b0/cd/76b0cdffa1d8fdb9d60ed9c6c9eb.jpg" target="_self"> the back side of the studio</a><a href="https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/originals/76/b0/cd/76b0cdffa1d8fdb9d60ed9c6c9eb.jpg" target="_self">'s cal</a><a href="https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/originals/76/b0/cd/76b0cdffa1d8fdb9d60ed9c6c9eb.jpg" target="_self">endar</a>in Also,the Dexter variant debuted on the book, The World of Hanna-Barbera and<a href="https://media.tumblr.com/eb1ee8ddc05b21af/tumblr_mzn9tdKPEt1qzmo1_jpg" target="_self"> an advertisement</a>. It was last seen on the final episode of season 3 of Johnny Bravo.

Bylines:

  • "A Time Warner Company"
  • "An AOL Time Warner Company"

Variants:

  • As noted above, each Hanna-Barbera produced original series for Cartoon Network from onward starting with Cave Kids(used in February ) had this logo, always with the cartoon’s star(s), the only exception was The Powerpuff Girls, which used an altered version of the 8th logo. This not only included the regular half-hour series but one-off shorts, previously called What a Cartoon!, that now fell under the Cartoon Cartoons banner (which are now no longer rerun on TV). Thus, there are a large number of variations.
  • Some of the very early logos had a different style byline. Appearing in an arc-like fashion below the logo are the words “Hanna-Barbera Cartoons, Inc. A Time Warner Company”. This was soon dropped. It was mostly used on Cow and Chicken (sometimes with the other byline), but also appeared on a few Dexter's Laboratory episodes.
  • Some H-B cartoons from this period had some animation to include Cartoon Network’s logo; the H-B logo would iris-out () or zoom out (), and then a "shiny" version of Cartoon Network’s logo would zoom in. Additional sound effects were used for this. Again, quickly dropped, as CN was putting a specially-created network logo after Cartoon Cartoons. In some cases, there would be a quick fade out before the CN logo would appear! This was only used during mid early ; it was retained on Boomerang airings of Cow and Chicken, usually with the byline variant (also appears on a few Dexter's Laboratory episodes (including the TV movie Ego Trip, where it appeared by zooming out of the top point in the "CGI Swirling Star") and at least one Johnny Bravo episode).
  • On the HD remaster of Scooby-Doo on Zombie Island, the Scooby variant mentioned below has the Time Warner byline missing and the oval centered.
  • On all episodes of The What-a-Cartoon Show, a headshot of Fred Flintstone looking upwards in a pale purple oval with rose-pink script is plastered onto the lower right corner of the opening sequence.
  • On a promo on the VHS of Tink The Little Dinosaur: Lights Out!, we can see Atom Ant flying while waving. The camera zooms out to reveal the oval, as the letters "Hanna Barbera" appear. We see the text "Look out for these hilarious Hanna-Barbera cartoon characters on home video." fade in.

List of series or shorts with characters:

  • Courage the Cowardly Dog( Pilot): The end of the What-a-Cartoon episode "The Chicken from Outer Space" has a head shot of Fred Flintstone inside of a purple oval on ablackbackground, with the H-B script in bright turquoise. This was later replaced by the "Comedy All-Stars" logo.
  • Cow and Chicken (Pilot): On a sky blue background, has a head shot of Dino from The Flintstones inside an orange oval with the H-B script in blue. Under the logo is a copyright. On later airings, this logo was replaced by the "Comedy All-Stars" logo.
  • Dexter's Laboratory (Season 2): A side profile of Dexter in a navy blue oval. The H-B script is medium red-violet.
  • Cow and Chicken: Two variants: seasons 1 and 3 has Chicken at the left and Cow at the right in an aqua oval with yellow H-B script (common on Boomerang); season 2 has Cow holding Chicken by his neck with apricot-colored script. The oval is also aqua.
  • Johnny Bravo (Seasons ): Again, two variants: season one has Johnny in a purple oval with yellow H-B script; another features a close-up of Johnny in a sky blue oval w/lime green H-B script. The first one debuted at the end of the third episode of the first season on July 21, The later one only appeared on two episodes of the second season.
  • I Am Weasel:I.M. Weasel on the left giving a shy look and I.R. Baboon giving an annoyed/suspicious look on the right inside a jungle green oval. The H-B script is shocking pink.
  • Kenny & the Chimp: Kenny on the left and Chimp on the right inside a pale turquoise oval. The H-B script is pumpkin orange.
  • Foe Paws: Mamma Mia smiling in between Rolo with a surprised look, and Vivian glaring, inside a grasshopper-green rectangle. The H-B script is leyden blue.
  • King Crab: King Crab with his frustrated face is on the top contained in a whiter ectangle. The H-B script is federal blue.
  • Whatever Happened to Robot Jones? (Pilot): Robot Jones is tilted a bit inside a lime green rectangle. The H-B script is red. This was seen only on the pilot episode in
  • Thrillseeker: (from left to right) Joe, Otto and Ashley have excited looks on their faces in apale blue oval. The H-B script is dark turquoise.
  • Uncle Gus: Uncle Gus stands in a ready-to-run pose inside ayellowvertical rectangle. The H-B script is white.The background is black instead of white.
  • The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy(Pilot): Grim appears in a black vertical rectangle. The H-B script is ind ark green. Like the Robot Jones variant, it was only seen on the pilot episode.
  • Cave Kids: A head shot of Baby Pebbles Flintstone inside a sky blue oval. The H-B script is yellow. Although the series aired in , the show originally used the "Comedy All-Stars" logo before it was replaced with this logo in
  • Tom & Jerry ("The Mansion Cat" short): Head shots of Tom & Jerry inside a malachite box on a periwinkle background. The H-B script is flamingo pink. This one has a more 3-D look to it.
  • Scooby-Doo: Scooby-Doo appears in a pink oval. The H-B script is turquoise. Like Uncle Gus, the background is black. This was used for at least some of the made-for-video movies produced by Warner Bros. Animation. There were no sound effects used. This was used from September 22, to October 9, Also, notably, this was one of the two versions to feature the AOL Time Warner byline from , as seen at the end of Scooby-Doo and the Cyber Chase, the other one seen on the Dexter's Laboratory "Greatest Adventures" VHS tape.
FX/SFX: None. This was done by Hatmaker Films in Boston, MA.

Music/Sounds: There was one standard sound effect montage created for this logo, ending in H-B's weird “laughing” sound effect (performed by veteran H-B voice actor Daws Butler); the sound is first heard on the newer version of the Cartoon Network Studios logo, specifically the What-a-Cartoon! late produced shorts, such as Tales of Worm Paranoia, Zoonatiks, Snoots New Squat, Strange Things and newer prints of the two Malcolm and Melvin shorts produced in (the latter two had the All Stars Comedy variant). The extended version has a synthesized whoosh sound as the H-B oval irises out, and the sound effect of the paper carrier on The Flintstones throwing the stone newspaper onto Fred's head. In , the sound effect montage was switched to a different one that also incorporated classic Looney Tunes sound effects, possibly because of the Time Warner merger. For the Scooby-Doo variant, none. For the Tom & Jerry version, just the closing theme of the show.

Music/Sounds Variants:
  • On one episode of Johnny Bravo, different sounds are heard.
  • The Dino variant from the Cow and Chicken pilot uses the audio from the "Comedy" variant of the "All-Stars" logo.
  • On Uncle Gus, the end theme plays over the logo.
  • On the Whatever Happened to Robot Jones? pilot, chicken noises are heard.
  • On the promo variant with Atom Ant, we hear a wind noise and Atom Ant says "Come on, keep helping everybody!", then giggles.

Availability: Depending on the variant.
  • Dexter's Laboratory: Uncommon. It appears on season 2 episodes of said show when rerun on Boomerang and is on season 2 DVD sets. It also plasters the Cartoon Network Studios logo on some airings of season 1 of said show.
  • Cow and Chicken: Uncommon. Both variants appear on said show which is available on DVD.
  • Johnny Bravo: Uncommon. The first variant appears on season 1 alongside it's DVD release, and the second one appears on season 2, both of which air on Boomerang on some occasions, but not currently.
  • I Am Weasel: Very Rare. The show doesn't air often as a standalone show, and so this variant isn't easy to find. the Region 4 DVD release might contain it though.
  • Tom & Jerry: Extremely rare. It only appears on the short "The Mansion Cat" which airs on Cartoon Network and Boomerang on very rare occasions.
  • Scooby-Doo: It appears at the end of the first 4 of the made-for-video Scooby-Doo movies after the credits sequence, those being Scooby-Doo on Zombie Island, Scooby-Doo and the Witches Ghost, Scooby-Doo and the Alien Invaders and Scooby-Doo and the Cyber Chase.
  • Robot Jones: Extinct. It only appeared on the original airing of the Whatever Happened to Robot Jones? pilot. Reruns of the pilot don't preserve this and it's unlikely that the show will ever air again on TV.
  • Billy and Mandy: Extremely rare. It only appears on the original pilot for The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy, which appears as a bonus on the season 1 DVD and was seen on recent CN airings (most notably on Cartoon Planet, where the logo along with the original credits were retained).
  • Cave Kids: Extinct. If Cave Kids ever re-airs on Boomerang or ever appears on the Boomerang streaming service, a print with the "Comedy All-Stars" logo is very likely to appear instead of this one.
  • Rest of the variants: Extinct. The rest of them were all one-shorts that aired on What A Cartoon!. They are most likely to never air again after What-A-Cartoon! ended in
  • Promo variant with Atom Ant: Rare. It has been seen on the VHS of Tink The Little Dinosaur: Lights Out!.

Editor's Note: Again, fairly simple, but sure to be memorable to anyone growing up with Cartoon Network in the late '90s and early s.

16th Logo

(February 28, )

<img align="bottom" alt="Hanna Barbera Cartoons ()" height="" src="http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/3/19decbda94affd42bb6/GWH" title="Hanna Barbera Cartoons ()" width=""/><iframe height="" src="http://wikifoundrytools.com/wiki/closinglogos/widget/unknown/dae8f8a58bb4ecf8ad08f1afbe3c" width=""></iframe>

Nicknames: "Rainbow H-B II", "The Return of HB", "Hanna-Barbera Strikes Back!", "Welcome Back, Hanna-Barbera", "The Annoying HB Logo", "H-B Without Scooby-Doo"

Logo: Same concept as the 6th logo, except the colors are more vivid, the animation is smoother, and the last "HANNA-BARBERA" zooms at us a bit before morphing into an "HB" (in a similar style as the Taft-HB print logo). "HANNA-BARBERA CARTOONS" wipes in below.

Variant: A shortened version exists that just shows the finished "HB" logo and text, with the "HANNA-BARBERA" text still scrolling inside.

FX/SFX: Good animation and a nice throwback to the logo.

Music/Sounds: The opening or closing theme of the film or show.

Availability: Brand new, but current. It was first seen on the direct-to-video movie The Jetsons & WWE Robo WrestleMania!. The shortened version also appears at the end of the new Wacky Races reboot as seen on the Boomerang streaming service, and at the end of Yabba Dabba Dinosaurs! on Boomerang UK. Don't count on seeing this logo on anything Scooby-Doo related from the studio, as Warner generally classifies Scooby-Doo as a completely separate franchise from the rest of the H-B family.

Editor's Note: This is a nice, nostalgic logo, but it may annoy fans of older Hanna-Barbera logos.

Hanna-Barbera Productions, Inc. (HAN-ə bar-BAIR-ə, -&#; BAR-bər-ə),[1] also variously known as H-B Enterprises, H-B Production Co., and Hanna-Barbera Cartoons, Inc., was an American animation studio and production company founded on July 7, by Tom and Jerry creators and former Metro-Goldwyn-Mayeranimation directors William Hanna and Joseph Barbera.[2]

It was a prominent presence in American animation for five decades with a variety of animated series, including Huckleberry Hound, Yogi Bear, The Flintstones, Top Cat, The Jetsons, Jonny Quest, Wacky Races, Scooby-Doo and The Smurfs[3] and was awarded with eight Emmy Awards and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.[4][5]Taft Broadcasting bought the company in and retained ownership until [6]

By the s, as the profitability of Saturday-morning cartoons was eclipsed by weekday afternoon syndication, Hanna-Barbera's fortunes had declined. In , Turner Broadcasting System purchased it from Great American Broadcasting (renamed from Taft in ), and used its back catalog as programming for Cartoon Network.[7][8] Turner Broadcasting later merged with Time Warner (now WarnerMedia) in [9]

After Hanna died in , Hanna-Barbera was absorbed into Warner Bros. Animation. Since the studio's closure, Warner Bros. has continued to produce new programming and material based on Hanna-Barbera's classic properties, with their logo still occasionally appearing in select projects.

History[edit]

Tom and Jerry and birth of studio (–)[edit]

William Debney "Bill" Hanna, a native of Melrose, New Mexico and Joseph Roland "Joe" Barbera, born of Italian heritage in New York City, first met at the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM) studio in , while working at MGM's animation division. With both having worked at other studios since the early s, the two solidified a partnership that would last for six decades. Their first cartoon together, the Oscar-nominated Puss Gets the Boot, featuring a cat named Jasper and an unnamed mouse, was released in and served as the first entry in the long-running theatrical short subject series Tom and Jerry.

As directors of the shorts for 20 years, Hanna supervised the animation, while Barbera did the stories and pre-production. Seven of the cartoons won 7 Academy Awards for Best Short Subject (Cartoons) between and , and five additional shorts were nominated for 12 awards during this period. However, the Oscars were awarded to producer Fred Quimby, who was not involved in the creative development of the shorts.:&#;83–84&#; Other projects done by the duo for MGM include new sequences for Anchors Aweigh, Dangerous When Wet and Invitation to the Dance and one-shot film shorts Gallopin' Gals, The Goose Goes South, Officer Pooch, War Dogs and Good Will to Men, a remake of 's Peace on Earth.

With Quimby's retirement in , Hanna and Barbera became the producers in charge of the MGM animation studio's output. In addition to continuing to write and direct new Tom & Jerry shorts, now in CinemaScope, Hanna and Barbera supervised the last seven shorts of Tex Avery's Droopy series, and produced and directed a short-lived Tom and Jerry spin-off series, Spike and Tyke, which ran for two entries. In addition to their work on the cartoons, the two men moonlighted on outside projects, including the original title sequences and commercials for the CBSsitcomI Love Lucy.[13] With the emergence of television, MGM decided in mid to close its cartoon studio, as it felt it had acquired a reasonable backlog of shorts for re-release. While contemplating their future, Hanna and Barbera began producing additional animated television commercials.

During their last year at MGM, they had developed a concept for a new animated TV program about a dog and cat duo in various misadventures. After they failed to convince the studio to back their venture, live-action director George Sidney, who had worked with Hanna and Barbera on several of his theatrical features for MGM, offered to serve as their business partner and convinced Screen Gems, a television production subsidiary of Columbia Pictures, to make a deal with the producers.[2] A coin toss determined that Hanna would have precedence in naming the new studio. Harry Cohn, president and head of Columbia Pictures, took an 18% ownership in Hanna and Barbera's new company, H-B Enterprises,[2] and provided working capital.

Screen Gems became the new studio's distributor and its licensing agent, handling merchandizing of the characters from the animated programs.[15] The duo's cartoon firm officially opened for business in rented offices on the lot of Kling Studios (formerly Charlie Chaplin Studios)[13] on July 7, , one year after the MGM animation studio closed. Sidney and several Screen Gems alumni became members of the studio's board of directors and much of the former MGM animation staff—including animators Carlo Vinci, Kenneth Muse, Lewis Marshall, Michael Lah and Ed Barge and layout artists Ed Benedict and Richard Bickenbach—became the new production staff.

Hoyt Curtin was in charge of providing the music while many voice performers came on board, such as Penny Singleton, Paul Winchell, Janet Waldo, Alan Reed, Henry Corden, Jean Vander Pyl, Frank Welker, Arnold Stang, Marvin Kaplan, Allen Melvin, Bea Benaderet, June Foray, Gerry Johnson, Lucille Bliss, Casey Kasem, Gary Owens, Scatman Crothers, George O' Hanlon, Daws Butler, Don Messick, Julie Bennett, Mel Blanc, Howard Morris, John Stephenson, Hal Smith, Tim Matheson and Doug Young.

Success with animated sitcoms (–)[edit]

H-B Enterprises was the first major animation studio to successfully produce cartoons exclusively for television,[16] and after rebroadcasts of theatrical cartoons as programming, its first TV original The Ruff and Reddy Show, premiered on NBC in December 14, The Huckleberry Hound Show premiered in syndication in September 29, and aired in most markets just before prime time. A rating success, it introduced a new crop of cartoon stars to audiences, in particular Huckleberry Hound, Pixie and Dixie and Mr. Jinks and Yogi Bear, and was the first animated series to win an Emmy.

The studio began expanding rapidly following its initial success and several animation industry alumni – in particular former Warner Bros. Cartoons storymen Michael Maltese and Warren Foster, who became new head writers for the studio – joined the staff at this time, along with Joe Ruby and Ken Spears as film editors and Iwao Takamoto as character designer. By , H-B Enterprises was reincorporated as Hanna-Barbera Productions, Inc., and slowly became a leader in TV animation production from then on. The Quick Draw McGraw Show and its only theatrical short film series, Loopy De Loop, followed that year. In August , the company moved into a window-less, cinder block building at Cahuenga Boulevard West,[18] though the building was too small to house the growing staff and some employees worked from home.

The Flintstones premiered on ABC in prime time in , loosely based on the CBS series The Honeymooners. It was set in a fictionalized Stone Age of cavemen and dinosaurs. Jackie Gleason considered suing Hanna-Barbera for copyright infringement, but decided not to because he did not want to be known as "the man who yanked Fred Flintstone off the air". The show ran for six seasons, becoming the longest-running animated show in American prime time at the time (until The Simpsons beat it in ), ratings and merchandising success and the top-ranking animated program in syndication history. It initially received mixed reviews from critics, but its reputation eventually improved and it is now considered a classic.

The Yogi Bear Show, Top Cat, Wally Gator, Touché Turtle and Dum Dum, Lippy the Lion & Hardy Har Har and The Jetsons soon followed in and Several animated TV commercials were produced, as well, often starring their own characters (probably the best known is a series of Pebbles cereal commercials for Post featuring Barney tricking Fred into giving him his Pebbles cereal) and H-B also produced the opening credits for Bewitched, in which animated caricatures of Samantha and Darrin appeared. These characterizations were reused in the sixth season Flintstones episode "Samantha".

The former Hanna-Barbera building at Cahuenga BoulevardWest in Hollywood, seen in a photograph: The small yellow structure (lower right) was originally the "guard shack" for the property entrance to the east of the building.

In , Hanna-Barbera's operations moved to Cahuenga Boulevard West in Hollywood Hills/Studio City. This contemporary office building was designed by architect Arthur Froehlich. Its ultra-modern design included a sculpted latticework exterior, moat, fountains, and a Jetsons-like tower. In , newer programs included The Magilla Gorilla Show, The Peter Potamus Show, and Jonny Quest. Atom Ant, Secret Squirrel, and Sinbad Jr. and his Magic Belt came in Screen Gems and Hanna-Barbera's partnership lasted until when Hanna and Barbera announced the sale of their studio to Taft Broadcasting.[15]

Taft's acquisition of Hanna-Barbera was delayed for a year by a lawsuit from Joan Perry, John Cohn, and Harrison Cohn – the wife and sons of former Columbia Pictures president Harry Cohn, who felt that the studio undervalued the Cohns' 18% share in the company when it was sold a few years previously.[19] In , Laurel and Hardy, Frankenstein Jr. and The Impossibles and Space Ghost first aired and by December , the litigation had been settled and the studio was finally acquired by Taft for $12 million. Taft folded the studio into its corporate structure in and ,[15] becoming its distributor.

Hanna and Barbera stayed on with the studio while Screen Gems retained licensing and distribution rights to the previous Hanna-Barbera-produced cartoons,[15] along with trademarks to the characters into the s and s.[15][20] A number of new comedy and action cartoons followed in , among them are The Space Kidettes, The Abbott and Costello Cartoon Show, Birdman and the Galaxy Trio, The Herculoids, Shazzan, Fantastic Four, Moby Dick and Mighty Mightor, and Samson & Goliath.

The Banana Splits Adventure Hour, The Adventures of Gulliver, and The New Adventures of Huckleberry Finn arose in , while the successful Wacky Races and its spinoffs The Perils of Penelope Pitstop and Dastardly and Muttley in Their Flying Machines aired on CBS, followed by Cattanooga Cats for ABC. The studio had a record label, Hanna-Barbera Records,[21] headed by Danny Hutton and distributed by Columbia Records. Previously, children's records featuring Hanna-Barbera characters were released by Colpix Records.

Mysteries, spinoffs and more (–)[edit]

Writers Ruby and Spears created Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! for CBS Saturday mornings in , a mystery-based program which blended comedy, action, and elements from I Love a Mystery and The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis.[22][23] Running for two seasons, it centered on four teenagers and a dog solving supernatural mysteries, and became one of Hanna-Barbera's most successful creations and has spawned several new spin-offs, such as The New Scooby-Doo Movies, The Scooby-Doo Show, Scooby-Doo and Scrappy-Doo and many others, which were regularly in production at Hanna-Barbera into the s.[24]

Referred to as "The General Motors of animation", Hanna-Barbera eventually went even further by producing nearly two-thirds of all Saturday-morning cartoons in a single year. Several Hanna-Barbera series from the s, such as Josie and the Pussycats, The Funky Phantom, The Amazing Chan and the Chan Clan, Speed Buggy, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kids, Goober and the Ghost Chasers, Inch High, Private Eye, Clue Club, Jabberjaw, Captain Caveman and the Teen Angels and The New Shmoo built upon the mystery-solving template set by Scooby-Doo, with further series built around teenagers solving mysteries with a comic relief pet of some sort.

The Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm Show returned The Flintstones characters to television in with a new spin-off series based on their now teenaged children while The Flintstone Comedy Hour and The New Fred and Barney Show remained in production through the early s. Meanwhile, Josie would get her own spinoff Josie and the Pussycats in Outer Space. Yogi Bear, Huckleberry Hound and others returned in for brand new shows, such as Yogi's Gang, Laff-a-Lympics, Yogi's Space Race, and Galaxy Goof-Ups, while Tom and Jerry were also given a new series of televised cartoons in

The Great Grape Ape Show and The Mumbly Cartoon Show followed soon after. In , Hanna-Barbera opened an animation studio in Australia, with the Hamlyn Group acquiring a 50% stake in Hamlyn was acquired by James Hardie Industries. In , Hanna-Barbera Australia bought itself out from Hardie and Taft Broadcasting, with the studio changing its name to Southern Star Group. The studio has since become Endemol Shine Australia, a division of the Banijay Group. In , Hanna-Barbera produced the first of several iterations of Super Friends, an action-adventure series adapted from DC Comics' Justice League of America superhero characters.

Following the initial Super Friends TV series on ABC, the show returned to production in , remaining on ABC through with continuations such as The All-New Super Friends Hour, Challenge of the Super Friends, and The World's Greatest Super Friends. Hanna-Barbera's other s series included Harlem Globetrotters, Wait Till Your Father Gets Home, Help! It's the Hair Bear Bunch!, The Roman Holidays, Sealab , Jeannie, The Addams Family, Partridge Family A.D., These Are The Days, Valley of the Dinosaurs, Wheelie and the Chopper Bunch, Dynomutt, Dog Wonder, CB Bears, The Robonic Stooges, The All New Popeye Hour, Godzilla, Buford and the Galloping Ghost and Jana of the Jungle.

Charlotte's Web, an adaptation of E. B. White's children's novel and Hanna-Barbera's first feature film not based on one of their TV shows, was released in by Paramount Pictures. While the majority of American television animation during the second half of the 20th century was made by Hanna-Barbera, with major competition coming from Filmation and DePatie-Freleng, then-ABC president Fred Silverman gave its Saturday-morning cartoon time to them after dropping Filmation for its failure of Uncle Croc's Block.[citation needed] Along with the rest of the American animation industry, it began moving away from producing all its cartoons in-house in the late s and early s.

Ruby and Spears worked with Hanna-Barbera in and as ABC network executives to create and develop new cartoons before leaving in to start their company, Ruby-Spears Enterprises, with Filmways as its parent division.[23] In , Taft bought Worldvision Enterprises, which became Hanna-Barbera's distributor. New live-action material was produced in the s and early s, as well as new live-action/animated projects since the mids. Their live-action unit spun off and became Solow Production Company in [25]

Control decrease and Smurfs-era (–)[edit]

Led by Marc Levoy, Hanna-Barbera began developing a computerized digital ink and paint system in ,[26] long before other animation studios. This process helped bypass much of the time-consuming labor of painting and photographing cels, and was implemented on a third of Hanna-Barbera's animated programs, televised feature films and specials from through [26][27] New episodes of both Super Friends and Scooby-Doo and Scrappy-Doo, as well as The Fonz and the Happy Days Gang, Richie Rich, and The Flintstone Comedy Show emerged in

Laverne and Shirley in the Army, Space Stars, The Kwicky Koala Show, and Trollkins debuted in Taft purchased Ruby-Spears Enterprises from Filmways (which was eventually absorbed into Orion Pictures the following year), making it a sister studio to Hanna-Barbera. As a result, several earlys series were shared between both studios, the animated version of Mork & Mindy and The Scooby-Doo/Scrappy-Doo/Puppy Hour among them.[28] Filmation, Marvel/Sunbow, Rankin/Bass and DIC introduced successful syndicated shows based on licensed properties. While Hanna-Barbera continued to produce for Saturday mornings and weekday afternoons, it no longer dominated the TV animation market and its control over children's programming went down from 80% to 20%.

The Smurfs, adapted from the comic by Pierre Culliford (known as Peyo) and centering on a group of tiny blue creatures led by Papa Smurf, premiered and aired on NBC for nine seasons, becoming the longest-running Saturday-morning cartoon series in broadcast history, a significant ratings success, the top-rated program in eight years and the highest for an NBC show since [29]Jokebook, The Gary Coleman Show, Shirt Tales, Pac-Man, The Little Rascals, The Scooby-Doo/Scrappy-Doo/Puppy Hour, The Dukes, Monchhichis, The New Scooby and Scrappy-Doo Show and The Biskitts would be aired in and

Following an animation strike in ,[30] more of Hanna and Barbera's shows were outsourced to studios outside of the United States and firms such as Cuckoo's Nest Studios, Mr. Big Cartoons, Toei Animation, and Fil-Cartoons in Australia and Asia provided production services to Hanna-Barbera from through to the end of its existence. The New Scooby-Doo Mysteries, Snorks, Challenge of the GoBots, Pink Panther and Sons, Super Friends: The Legendary Super Powers Show, The Super Powers Team: Galactic Guardians, The 13 Ghosts of Scooby-Doo, Yogi's Treasure Hunt, Galtar and the Golden Lance, Paw Paws and new episodes of The Jetsons premiered in and

The Greatest Adventure: Stories from the Bible, the first new straight-to-video series, debuted.[31] In , new episodes of Jonny Quest, Pound Puppies, The Flintstone Kids, Foofur and Wildfire aired while Sky Commanders and Popeye and Son debuted in Taft, whose financial troubles were affecting the Hanna-Barbera studio, was acquired by the American Financial Corporation in , which renamed Taft to Great American Broadcasting the following year.[citation needed]A Pup Named Scooby-Doo, The Completely Mental Misadventures of Ed Grimley, new episodes of Yogi Bear, Fantastic Max, The Further Adventures of SuperTed, and Paddington Bear followed in and

Great American sold Worldvision to Aaron Spelling Productions, while Hanna-Barbera and its library remained with them. Producer Tom Ruegger, working on A Pup Named Scooby-Doo, got a call in January from Warner Bros. to resurrect its animation department.[32] Ruegger, along with several of his colleagues, left Hanna-Barbera at that time to develop new programs such as Tiny Toon Adventures and Animaniacs at Warner Bros.[32]David Kirschner, known for producing the An American Tail and Child's Play film franchises, was later appointed as the new CEO of Hanna-Barbera.[33]

In , under Kirschner, the studio formed Bedrock Productions, a unit for various movies and shows.[34] While Great American put Hanna-Barbera, along with Ruby-Spears, up for sale after being less successful and burdened in debt, new shows Midnight Patrol: Adventures in the Dream Zone, Rick Moranis in Gravedale High, Tom & Jerry Kids Show, Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventures, The Adventures of Don Coyote and Sancho Panda and Wake, Rattle, and Roll (later as Jump, Rattle, and Roll) first aired.

Acquisition by Turner, Cartoon Network, and absorption into Warner Bros. Animation (–)[edit]

In , while Young Robin Hood, The Pirates of Dark Water and Yo Yogi! debuted on-air, Turner Broadcasting System outbid MCA (then-parent company of Universal Studios), Hallmark Cards and other major companies in acquiring Hanna-Barbera while also purchasing Ruby-Spears as well. The two studios were acquired in a joint venture between Turner Broadcasting System and Apollo Investment Fund for $&#;million.[35][36] Turner purchased these assets to launch a new all-animation network aimed at children and younger audiences.

Its president of entertainment Scott Sassa hired former MTV Networks executive Fred Seibert to head Hanna-Barbera, who filled the gap left by the Great American-era production crew with new animators, directors, producers and writers, including Pat Ventura, Craig McCracken, Donovan Cook, Genndy Tartakovsky, David Feiss, Seth MacFarlane, Van Partible, Butch Hartman and Stewart St. John.[37] In , after being renamed to H-B Production Company, the studio unleashed new animated series Fish Police, Capitol Critters and new episodes of The Addams Family for broadcast.

Turner launched Cartoon Network, the first hour all-animation channel, to air its library of cartoon classics, of which Hanna-Barbera was the core contributor.[38] In , the studio again named itself to Hanna-Barbera Cartoons, Inc. (though the Hanna-Barbera Productions name would still be used in regards to the pre properties) and while Turner acquired its remaining interests from Apollo Investment Fund for $&#;million,[39]Droopy, Master Detective, The New Adventures of Captain Planet, SWAT Kats: The Radical Squadron and 2 Stupid Dogs emerged that year and in At this time, Turner Broadcasting System refocused the studio to produce new shows exclusively for its networks.

Dumb and Dumber debuted and aired on ABC in and became the final new Hanna-Barbera show to air on a broadcast network. Afterward, What a Cartoon! (first promoted as World Premiere Toons), an animation showcase led by Seibert, premiered and featured new creator-driven shorts developed for Cartoon Network by Hanna-Barbera's in-house staff. Several new original animated series emerged from it, including Dexter's Laboratory, Johnny Bravo, Cow and Chicken, and The Powerpuff Girls. In , while the new series Cave Kids and The Real Adventures of Jonny Quest premiered, Turner Broadcasting merged with Time Warner.

In , after being on Cahuenga Blvd. since , Hanna-Barbera, its archives and its extensive animation art collection moved to Sherman Oaks Galleria in Sherman Oaks, California, where Warner Bros. Animation was located and operated alongside that studio there until , when H-B was absorbed into it.[40][41] After its absorption into Warner Bros. Animation, Cartoon Network Studios was revived, lead by former DiC and Nickelodeon production executives Brian A. Miller and Jennifer Pelphrey, and took over production of programming, moving to an abandoned telephone exchange in Burbank.[42] Hanna died of throat cancer on March 22,

The Cahuenga Blvd. studio faced demolition after Hanna-Barbera vacated the facilities in , despite the efforts of Barbera and the others to preserve it. In May , the Los Angeles City Council approved a plan to preserve the headquarters, while allowing retail and residential development on the site.[43]

New projects based on legacy properties (–present)[edit]

After absorbing the Hanna-Barbera studio, Warner Bros. Animation has continued to produce new productions based on Hanna-Barbera's legacy properties. Barbera continued to be involved in the production of new material based on Hanna-Barbera's properties until his death of natural causes on December 18, [44]

Warner Bros. has produced several films based on Hanna-Barbera properties, including the film Yogi Bear in and Top Cat: The Movie in , as well as several films based on the Scooby-Doo franchise. Most recently, Warner Animation Group released the film Scoob! on May 15, , which is intended to be the first installment of a Hanna-Barbera cinematic universe.[45][46][47] Warner Animation Group also has a live action The Jetsons film,[48][49][50] an animated The Flintstones, film and an animated Wacky Races film[51] in development, along with more new content.[52][53]

On April 7, , Cartoon Network Studios Europe announced that it would rebrand as Hanna-Barbera Studios Europe to revive the name.[54]

Production[edit]

Production process changes[edit]

The small budgets that television animation producers had to work within prevented Hanna-Barbera from working with the full theatrical-quality animation that Hanna and Barbera had been known for at Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. While the budget for MGM's seven-minute Tom and Jerry shorts was about $35,, the Hanna-Barbera studios were required to produce five-minute Ruff and Reddy episodes for no more than $3, apiece.[2] To keep within these tighter budgets, Hanna-Barbera furthered the concept of limited animation (also called "planned animation")[55] practiced and popularized by the United Productions of America (UPA) studio, which also once had a partnership with Columbia Pictures. Character designs were simplified, and backgrounds and animation cycles (walks, runs, etc.) were regularly re-purposed.

Characters were often broken up into a handful of levels so that only the parts of the body that needed to be moved at a given time (i.e. a mouth, an arm, ahead) would be animated. The rest of the figure would remain on a held animation cel. This allowed a typical minute short to be done with only 1, drawings instead of the usual 26, Dialogue, music, and sound effects were emphasized over action, leading Chuck Jones—a contemporary who worked for Warner Bros. Cartoons and whose short The Dover Boys practically invented many of the concepts in limited animation—to disparagingly refer to the limited television cartoons produced by Hanna-Barbera and others as "illustrated radio".[56]

In a story published by The Saturday Evening Post in , critics stated that Hanna-Barbera was taking on more work than it could handle and was resorting to shortcuts only a television audience would tolerate.[57] An executive who worked for Walt Disney Productions said, "We don't even consider [them] competition".[57] Animation historian Christopher P. Lehman argues that Hanna-Barbera attempted to maximize their bottom line by recycling story formulas and characterization instead of introducing new ones. Once a formula for an original series was deemed successful, the studio would keep reusing it in subsequent series. Besides copying their own works, Hanna-Barbera would draw inspiration from the works of other people and studios.

Lehman considers that the studio served as the main example of how animation studios that focused on TV animation differed from those that focused on theatrical animation. Theatrical animation studios tried to maintain full and fluid animation and consequently struggled with the rising expenses associated with producing it. Limited animation as practiced by Hanna-Barbera kept production costs at a minimum. The cost in quality of using this technique was that Hanna-Barbera's characters only moved when necessary.

Its solution to the criticism over its quality was to go into films. It produced six theatrical feature films, among them are higher-quality versions of its television cartoons and adaptations of other material. It was also one of the first animation studios to have their work produced overseas. One of these companies was a subsidiary began by Hanna-Barbera in November called Fil-Cartoons in the Philippines,[59][60] with Jerry Smith as a consultant for the subsidiary.[61]Wang Film Productions got its start as an overseas facility for the studio in [62]

Sound effects[edit]

Hanna-Barbera was known for its large library of sound effects, which have been featured in exhibitions at the Norman Rockwell Museum.[63]
