This is a list of animated television series produced by Hanna-Barbera Productions (also known as H-B Enterprises, H-B Production Company, and Hanna-Barbera Cartoons).
The Ruff & Reddy Show was Hanna-Barbera's first cartoon series which featured a cat (Ruff) and dog (Reddy) in serialized adventures, with thirteen episodes comprising a story arc. Ruff, was voiced by Don Messick, and Reddy was voiced by Daws Butler. Hanna and Barbera opened their cartoon studio the same year MGM (the studio they worked for) closed down its cartoon studio. After much effort, they were able to sell Ruff & Reddy to NBC, but they were only able to get $2700 per half hour of cartoon show, so all the meticulous detail into making the Tom and Jerry shorts were eschewed for a production-line process. Bill and Joe, taking a cue from 1949's "Crusader Rabbit," reasoned the best way to offset the low production values was to create appealing heroes and captivating storylines. Ruff and Reddy made their way through clandestine escapades squaring off against villains like Scarey Harry Safari, Killer and Diller, and Captain Greedy and Salt Water Daffy. Assisting our heroes in several adventures was wacky scientist Professor Gizmo. The show was first aired on NBC in December 1957 as part of live action host segments. Jimmy Blaine was the host on the show's first run (1957-60), and Captain Bob Cottle replaced him in the second run (1962-64). When the show went into syndication, the opening titles, which were never shown on the NBC telecasts, were seen with the "H-B Enterprises" card. The theme song was also heard for the first time: Get set, get ready Here comes Ruff and Reddy They're tough but steady Always rough and ready They sometimes have their little spats Even fight like dogs and cats But when they need each other That's when they're Ruff and Reddy Ruff & Reddy episodes appeared on Family Channel's "Incredible Animals" cartoon show in 1992 and recently the series has aired on Cartoon Network and its sister channel Boomerang.
The Huckleberry Hound Show is an animated TV series about a blue dog with a Southern drawl and a fondness for the song "My Darling, Clementine." Three segments were included in each episode: one featuring Huckleberry Hound, another starring Yogi Bear and his sidekick Boo Boo, and a third with Pixie and Dixie and Mr. Jinks, which starred two mice who in each short found a new way to outwit the cat Mr. Jinks. Every episode had him playing the part of a different profession, from police officer to lion tamer to medieval knight. The one thing that remained constant was Huckleberry's unruffled persistence to triumph over his opponent no matter how often he was outsmarted, outfought or fell victim to his own failed plans.
Hokey Wolf is a Hanna-Barbera cartoon about the adventures of a con-artist wolf who is always trying to cheat his way into the simple life. He is often accompanied alongside by his young, diminutive, sidekick Ding-A-Ling Wolf.
Pixie and Dixie and Mr. Jinks is a Hanna-Barbera cartoon about a pair of house mice who had to contend with the resident cat, Mr. Jinks. They usually appeared in one of the segments on the half-hour Huckleberry Hound Show, but reruns turned up on 'Scooby's All-Star Laff-a-Lympics' after 'Huck' ceased production.
Animated favorite about the fun-loving residents of Jellystone Park, Yogi Bear and his sidekick, Boo Boo, who try to steal picnic baskets and stay one step ahead of Ranger Smith.
The equine sheriff and his faithful burro sidekick, Baba Looey, dispense frontier justice in this Hanna-Barbera cartoon. Quick Draw's six-gun was sometimes replaced by the guitar of his alter ego, the Zorro-like El Kabong, who played a mean six-string.
Augie Doggie and Doggie Daddy was originally on the "Quickdraw McGraw" show. Augie, the son of Doggie Daddy, was the intelligent one of the pair. He would always look up to his 'Dear Old Dad' for guidance in all sorts of different predicaments. The series follows the pair as they go on all sorts of adventures, like camping and winding up in outer space, or doing yard work and winding up tending to the health of a mob of crows.
Another great cartoon created by Bill Hanna and Joe Barbera. This one featured a private detective team of Super Snooper (a cat) and Blabber Mouse.
The Flintstones is about a modern stone-age family, set in the prehistoric times. There's Fred, the meat-loving, bowling-playing fat man, Wilma, his wife who loves to cook and Pebbles, their cute baby daughter. Their next door neighbors are Barney, Fred's best friend, Betty, Barney's wife who always loves to hang out with Wilma, and their baby son Bamm-Bamm who is incredibly strong. The two families risk prehistoric danger or wild antics as they struggle to live normal lives.
Despite being a mountain lion, Snagglepuss is a rather sophisticated individual who merely seeks to better himself and his living situation. He lives in a damp and dark cavern, which isn’t too comfortable for someone of his standing. Unfortunately for him, life isn’t always fair for a mountain lion and he has to constantly ward off hunters, and some people refuse to talk to him because they’re afraid that he’ll eat them, not that he would do such a thing. Through it all, Snagglepuss’ life is one bizarre twist after another, and even though he’s a swell guy, the civilized world seldom wants anything to do with him.
Yakky Doodle (voiced by Jimmy Weldon to sound similar to Donald Duck) is an anthropomorphic duck who lives with his best friend Chopper the bulldog. Yakky is always one to run into danger when it's most expected. This usually comes in the form of the show's main antagonist Fibber Fox or secondary villain Alfy Gator. Chopper defends his "Little Buddy" fiercely, and is always ready to pound Fibber or any other enemy into oblivion if necessary. Yakky's tendency to put himself in great danger never draws a rebuke from Chopper, who presumably enjoys his protective role.
Top Cat, known as T.C. to his alley cat friends, is a mischievous prankster who lives in a trash can in the alley ways of New York City. He and his alley-cat cohorts think of get rich schemes and assorted pranks which are mostly involving and aimed at Officer Dibble, their nemesis and friend. T.C. manages to get out of his tight situations with hilarity and charm and even helps Dibble on occasion who is underscored by his overbearing sergeant.
Wally Gator is an anthropomorphic, happy-go-lucky alligator who wears a collar and a pork pie hat. Although his catchy theme song describes him as a "swingin' alligator of the swamp", his home is in the city zoo. Mr. Twiddle is the zookeeper who keeps a close watch on Wally because sometimes he escapes to check out what things are like in the outside world.
Each episode starts off with Touché popping forth from inside his shell. He then gets a phone call from someone who's in dire straits. His phone usually rests upon a sterling silver plate. Touché accepts all major credit cards. Thus, Touché and Dum-Dum go off into the crime scene and do their shtick, which may involve swordplay, box-fighting, martial arts, tom-foolery, work with pyrotechnics/explosives ...and so on. "Touché-Away!!" The original show of 52 episodes first aired on TV between September 1962 and August 1963. TouchÃ© and Dum Dum have appeared together in only a handful of 1960s-early 1970s H-B comic books, and both also showed up on Hanna-Barbera's 50th anniversary special in 1988 (you may find that on video).
Ever-hopeful Lippy attempts to get rich quick, with reluctant Hardy serving as a foil. Whatever the consequences were to Lippy's schemes, Hardy would end up getting the worst of it — a fact he always seemed to realize ahead of time, with his moans of, "Oh me, oh my, oh dear."
The Jetsons is an animated sitcom that was produced by Hanna-Barbera. It was Hanna-Barbera’s Space Age counterpart to The Flintstones, a half-hour family sitcom projecting contemporary American culture and lifestyle into another time period. The Jetsons live in a futuristic utopia in the year 2062 of elaborate robotic contraptions, aliens, holograms, and whimsical inventions.
Magilla Gorilla was about a gorilla for sale in a pet store that no one wants to buy. With voice talents including Mel Blanc (Looney Tunes: Voice Artist) and Don Messick, this show was an instant classic.
Ricochet Rabbit worked as a sheriff in a Western setting called Hoop 'n' Holler. Ricochet, true to his name, would bounce off all the walls yelling "bing-bing-bing!" His deputy Droop-A-Long Coyote was never able to be as "jumpy" and would end up crashing through a window, or some similar accident except on one occasion when Ricochet and Droop-A-Long were running away from a bear. Unfortunately for both of them, the bear also managed to bounce off. In addition to his speed, Ricochet was known for using trick bullets against his opponents (for example, a bullet that would stop in mid-flight and hover while striking the bad guy with an impossibly over-sized mallet, or exploding after inside bigger compartments of the bullet). Ricochet Rabbit's catchphrase consisted of three quick bings; "bing, bing, BING!", followed by him referring to himself in the third person; "Ricochet Rabbit!"
The show features a cat called Punkin' Puss who lives in a house in the woods of the southern US. Punkin' is preoccupied with a mouse called Mushmouse who lives there too, and Punkin' frequently tries to shoot him with his rifle. The cat looks similar to the cats in Top Cat's gang. One episode, "Nowhere Bear", has the cat continually disrupting an angry bear's sleep. Another, "Small Change", has Punkin Puss (and later a dog as well) shrinking to mouse size. Usually one of Mushmouse's cousins comes and gives Punkin' a hard time. Many would think Punkin' would stop bullying Mushmouse when this occurs but to no avail on Mushmouse's behalf when the relative leaves.
The adventures of Jonny Quest and his father Dr. Benton Quest. Along for the adventure is the multi-faceted "Race" Bannon, the mystical Hadji, and Jonny's dog, the irrepressible Bandit. They solve mysteries and try to thwart the evil of Dr. Zin.
The sixth Hanna-Barbera syndicated cartoon after their departure from MGM starred Peter Potamus (a purple hippopotamus), and his traveling companion So-So (a monkey), who fly back and forth through time in a balloon participating in historic events. Whenever they get into serious enough trouble, as they do in every episode, Peter defeats his enemies with his trademark "Hippo Hurricane Hollar." Other cartoon shorts include, "Breezly and Sneely," and "Yippee, Yappee, and Yahooey."
Breezly Bruin (voiced by Howard Morris) is a comical, resourceful, polar bear. His friend is Sneezly Seal (voiced by Mel Blanc), a droopy seal with a perpetual cold whose sneezes pack devastating power. They live in an igloo in the Arctic. Many of their episodes deal with Breezly's ambitious yet ultimately doomed plans to break into the local army camp for various reasons while trying to stay one step ahead of the army camp's leader Colonel Fuzzby (voiced by John Stephenson).
Atom Ant operated out of an anthill in the countryside, where he possessed such things as a mainframe computer and exercise equipment. His powers mostly consisted of the ability to fly, superspeed, and amazing strength. He was often contacted by the police, who sent him out on assignment. Some of these missions parodied those of Batman. In one episode, the police force was shown to be underfunded and inept, as they relied on Atom Ant to do all their police work. The only two police officers were the chief and deputy chief. The department only possessed one rusted patrol car. Atom Ant fights various villians including recurring ones like Ferocious Flea and mad scientist Professor Von Gimmick.
Hanna-Barbera's "The Secret Squirrel Show" was a 30-minute cartoon that included three individual segments: "Secret Squirrel," "Squiddly Diddly" and "Winsome Witch." Secret Squirrel was a parody of the spy genre, and most of his cartoons parodied elements of the James Bond films. Secret Squirrel was also known as "Agent 000."
The round-headed, sailor-hatted Squiddly, more octopus than squid in appearance, lived in an aquatic park similar to SeaWorld known as Bubbleland. Diddly is an aspiring musician and makes many attempts to escape and attain musical stardom. He is constantly foiled by Bubbleland's administrator Chief Winchley.

The Hillbilly Bears played on a social stereotype of the "hillbilly", with a gun-toting, mumbling father Paw Rugg who was always "feudin" (the "feudin" was usually a lethargic operation, in which the protagonists fired the same bullet back and forth from the comfort of their rocking chairs) with their neighbors, the Hoppers.
Winsome W. Witch (voiced by Jean Vander Pyl whose character is also called "Winnie") is a friendly, yet somewhat inept, witch. Winnie's catch phrase when casting a spell was "Ippity - Pippity - Pow!" (when the magic spell conjures, the Jet Screamer entrance cue from The Jetsons, is heard). She often flies around on a broom that happens to be magically alive.
Sinbad Jr. (voiced by Tim Matheson) is the son of Sinbad, the famous sea explorer. He becomes superhuman getting his power from his magic belt. His first mate is the funny and loyal assistant Salty the Parrot (voiced by Mel Blanc).

They adventure together through a lush South American valley filled with prehistoric friends and foes after Todd straps on a parachute and jumps out of the crashing plane that was carrying his whole family.

Todd even finds a pet, and takes on the responsibilities of caring for Bronto with great enthusiasm. Dangers abound as the trio continues their adventure, but allies in the valley are as plentiful as enemies, and there is a Bronto or Ugh for every saber-toothed tiger encountered. Colorful, well-voiced and cleverly animated, Dino Boy is a great bet for anyone looking for a fun, educational experience to share with a child.

However, the 1967-1968 Fantastic Four was produced by Hanna-Barbera, whose library is now owned by Time Warner, making the series one of only a handful of Marvel-related TV projects not owned by Disney (which has since acquired Marvel outright). Time Warner is also the owner of Marvel's biggest competitor, DC Comics.

The Wacky Races are a series of car competitions in which 11 racers race in locations throughout North America. The rules are extremely lax and allow for almost any vehicle design, power system and a wide range of tactics like combat and shortcuts. Despite this loose rule structure, competitors Dick Dastardly and his dog sidekick, Muttley, are still determined to cheat in their own ineffectual way.
Syvester Sneekly is the legal guardian of female race car driver Penelope Pitstop. He disguises himself as The Hooded Claw for the purpose of killing her so he can get her wealth. The Ant Hill Mod ( Cyide, Softly, Zippy, Pockets, Dum Dum, Yak Yak and Snoozy ) always save her.
Dick Dastardly and Muttley (the villains from the "Wacky Races" cartoon) are flying aces and members of the Vulture Squadron -- a crew of aviators on a mission to stop a homing pigeon named Yankee Doodle Pigeon from delivering messages to the other side.

The Cattanooga Cats is a show made up of 4 cartoons: "The Cattanooga Cats", "It's The Wolf", "Around The World in 79 Days", and "Autocat and Motormouse". There were two spinoffs: "It's The Wolf" and "Autocat and Motormouse". "Autocat and Motormouse" were related to Tom and Jerry by essentially being a racecar version of the other cartoon. "It's The Wolf" is about a cute lil' lamb called Lambsy who gets chased by Mildew Wolf. "Around The World in 79 Days" is about a boy who's going to win $1,000,000 dollars if he succeeds... But if not it'll go to Crumden.
Loosely based upon the novel, Around the World in Eighty Days by Jules Verne, this was an adventure segment involving balloonist "Phinny Fogg" (conceived as the son of the main character Phileas Fogg in the novel and voiced by Bruce Watson) and reporter teenagers Jenny (voiced by Janet Waldo) and Hoppy (voiced by Don Messick), who set out on a globetrotting adventure to sail around the world in 79 days and beat the original record set by Phinny's father. The trio are in competition for both the record and a US$1,000,000 prize against the sinister Crumden (voiced by Daws Butler), who supposedly was the butler of the original Phineas, aided by Phineas' chauffeur, the idiotic Bumbler (voiced by Allan Melvin), and Crumden's pet monkey, Smirky (voiced by Don Messick). Unlike the other segments, Around the World in 79 Days was a serial with a continuing story, however, as with many shows made during this period, it has no specific ending.
It's the timeless story of wolf sees lamb, wolf chases lamb, hound pummels wolf, wolf looses lamb. In this case, Mildew chases Lambsy in every location possible, only to get clobbered by Bristle Hound.
In this Hanna-Barbera show, Motor Mouse lives in the Spin Your Wheels garage, where it's the job of Auto Cat to get rid of him, only to fail time after time.

Later, the title was expanded to Josie and the Pussycats, turning Josie and Melody into a rock band, along with new friend Valerie. Singer/guitarist Josie was the level-headed leader, drummer Melody added zaniness with her half-witted remarks and effervescent charm, and tambourinist Valerie was the brains of the group, typically saving the day with her intellect and know-how. Along with the three Pussycats were roadie (and Josie's boyfriend) Alan, band manager Alexander Cabot III, his conniving sister Alexandra, and her mischiveous little cat, Sebastian.

Following a successful run of Scooby-Doo, Where Are You?, The New Scooby-Doo Movies was the first of many reincarnations of the lovable talking hound's show. To boost the already increasing popularity of the series, each episode of The New Scooby Doo Movies featured a guest star -- ranging from celebrities like Sonny and Cher and Monkees frontman Davy Jones to characters from other Hanna/Barbara cartoons like Josie and the Pussycats and Speed Buggy. The format basically stayed the same -- the most notable change being that each episode doubled in size from a thirty minute episode to sixty minutes. Scooby and the gang still found themselves foiling the bad guys in rubber masks like in the original series, but this time around the guest stars would help out and be another source of comedic hijinks. This series ran for two seasons with a total of 24 episodes and has had a long life in syndication. There is a lot of confusion surrounding the official titles of the episodes, whic

Their primary mode of transportation was the Hushmobile, a streamlined car that made virtually no noise while being driven, making it perfect for following criminals unnoticed. The small Inch worked for The Finkerton Detective Agency (a wordplay lampoon of The Pinkerton Detective Agency), where the boss (Mr. Finkerton) constantly dreamed of the day that he would fire him.

Grape Ape stands a whopping 40 feet tall and loves the colour green (note hat, jacket and bow tie). He loves to follow up most statements by repeating his name twice ("Grape Ape. Grape Ape"). Along with his canine pal Beegle Beagle (or "Beegley Beagley" as our purple ape would say) the two roam through the country landing themselves in all sorts of zany situations.

The Scooby Doo Show premiered on ABC in September 1976 as part of The Scooby-Doo-Dynomutt Hour, in which new episodes of Scooby Doo shared an hour with a superhero dog named Dynomutt. It was a revamped version of Scooby Doo, Where Are You? which started on CBS in 1969.
First seen on The Scooby-Doo/Dynomutt Hour, these half-hour antics animated derring-do showcased The Blue Falcon,a blue-clad superhero and his robotic doberman, Dynomutt Dog Wonder. The show, although based around crime-fighting, super heros and'evil do-ers' it seemed more to remind you of watching an episode of secret squirrel with all of its gags and laughs. Millionaire art dealer Radley Crowne (B.F.) and his mechanical bud, Dynomutt, enjoy leisure time in their base of operations; Big City, until alerted by The Falcon Flash. They immediately dash for The Falcon's Lair (situated in Crowne's penthouse apartment), where they switch to their secret identities, The Blue Falcon and Dog Wonder recieve their news/crime report via TV screen from the secret GHQ of secret agent Focus One and then jump into The Falconcar and speed into the night to battle crime and to save the citizens. Dynomutt controlled a system of miniaturized transistors which allowed him to extend his limbs or neck and use them to perform extraordinary feats; only problem was, none of them ever really worked properly! B.F. (as D.W. would lovingly refer to him), was more Dynomutt's victim than his master,since more then a few times, D.M.s gadjets . But nevertheless, Dynomutt and The Blue Falcon, who was equipped with his own arsenal of supergadgetry manage to get the situation well in hand. Sometimes Lt. Mumbly or even Dynomutt's co-stars, Scooby-Doo and Mystery Inc. would drop in to aid The high-tech Duo in cracking their toughest crimes. Dynomutt Dog Wonder has the historic significance of casting the first African-American public official in Saturday Morning cartoons, Mayor Gaunt (voiced by Larry McCormick). 16 30-minute episodes of Dynomutt Dog Wonder were seen in 1976-77 on ABC'S The Scooby-Doo/Dynomutt Hour; it later became The Scooby-Doo/Dynomutt Show when it was extended to an extra half hour. In 1977-78, when it was extended to yet another half hour under the umbrella title
Clue Club was a cartoon about four precocious young investigators (Dotty, Larry, D.D. and Pepper) who solved crimes with the help of two bloodhounds, Woofer and Whimper. Dotty, the brains of the team, would stay at home and analyze any clues that the gang found. The older dog, Woofer, thought he was a very good detective so he would always take the credit for solving the case. The laughs in the show were provided by Woofer and Whimper, due to their fear of the spooky places the gang went. The show only had one year of first run episodes, after which it aired in repeats on The Skatebirds under the new title Woofer and Whimper, Dog Detectives. These repeats were severely edited, which made the show particularly hard to follow. After a year on The Skatebirds, CBS reinstated the full episodes and re-ran them on Sundays under the original title. The show ran for another four months, cancelled in January of 1979. Theme Song: There they go, and on the double, to the spo

This animated series centers on the mystery-solving adventures of the Teen Angels (Brenda, Dee Dee and Taffy) and their friend Captain Caveman (or Cavey for short), a prehistoric caveman whom the girls discovered and thawed from a block of ice. Captain Caveman's powers include super-strength, a variety of useful objects hidden inside his fur, and a club that allows him to fly and from which pops out different tools he uses to fight crime. Captain Caveman's voice was provided by Mel Blanc. The first and second seasons of the show were part of "Scooby's All-Star Laff-A-Lympics" and "Scooby's All-Stars" through 1979. Cavey and the girls also participated in sporting competitions as part of The Scooby Doobies team on the half-hour "Laff-A-Lympics" segment. In March 1980, Captain Caveman and the Teen Angels were given their own half hour show with 16 new episodes combined with reruns from 1977–1979.
Hustle (voiced by Daws Butler impersonating Phil Silvers), Boogie (voiced by Chuck McCann) and Bump (voiced by Henry Corden) are a trio of funny animal bear detectives disguised as trash collectors. They travel the country solving mysteries in a tacky garbage truck. A sultry-voiced female named Charlie (voiced by Susan Davis) contacts the bears on the truck's CB radio to give them their assignments. This show was "inspired" by the hit TV series Charlie's Angels (Bump wore a blonde hairstyle similar to Farrah Fawcett). Each of the bears' names are based on a 1970s disco dance. Physically and personality-wise, Hustle, Boogie, and Bump resemble Hair Bear, Bubi Bear, and Square Bear, respectively, from Help!... It's the Hair Bear Bunch!; Daws Butler provided the same Phil Silvers-esque voice for both Hustle and Hair.
The Sheriff of Saddlesore (voiced by William Woodson) and his hopeless posse of cowboys: Stick (voiced by Daws Butler in a hillbilly voice), Big Duke (voiced by Daws Butler impersonating John Wayne) and Blubber (voiced by Chuck McCann) jail notorious outlaws by outbungling the rascals.

This animated series featured Undercover Elephant (voiced by Daws Butler) and his sidekick Loudmouse the Mouse (voiced by Bob Hastings) solving mysteries for Central Control. Originally this cartoon aired as part of the "CB Bears" show on Saturday mornings from 1977 to 1978. In the 1980s, reruns of "Undercover Elephant" aired during "Captain Kangaroo" and "Wake, Rattle and Roll."
Shake, Rattle, and Roll first aired in 1977 on NBC's "CB Bears" along with a segment called "Heyyy it's the King". The show is mainly about a ghostly trio that live in an inn and are always scaring humans away so they don't bother them. However even though they are able to scare possible guests away a man by the name of Sidney Merciless always ends up showing up to attempt to catch the ghosts in some sort of trap (most of the time in his fishing net). In most of these shows the main problem has nothing to do with human guests, but deals with their ghostly guests ranging from normal ghosts to a giant chicken monster.
Heyyy, It's the King! was one of the six segments of the CB Bears animated anthology series. It was an all-animal cartoon, reminiscent of the live-action sitcom Happy Days.
"The Robonic Stooges" is a cartoon featuring the characters of the Three Stooges in new roles as clumsy crime-fighting bionic superheroes. It originally aired as a segment on "The Skatebirds" from September 10, 1977, to December 24, 1977, on CBS.

Wonder Wheels was a five-minute cartoon produced by Hanna-Barbera Productions which was originally broadcast as a segment on the CBS Saturday morning package program The Skatebirds (1977-78). A young journalist named Willie Sheeler (voiced by Micky Dolenz of the 1960s group The Monkees) and his girlfriend Dooley Lawrence solve crimes with the help of his superhero motorcycle, Wonder Wheels. Whenever Willie goes into action, he utters his catchphrase: "This looks like a job for Won-won-won-won-won-won-won-won-won-won-won-won-wonder Wheels!". Then at the press of a button, Willie's beat-up motorcycle transforms into a souped-up version with a mind of its own.
1978 marked the beginning of a new era for the squinty-eyed sailor, returning to the small screen in The All-New Popeye Hour. This series was broken up into different segments: The Adventures of Popeye, Popeye's Treasure Hunt, Popeye's Sports Parade, and Dinky Dog. The latter segment starred a huge mutt and had little or nothing to do with Popeye or any sort of maritime activity. Because of the changing times, these episodes featured less fighting and more trickery on the part of Popeye's nemesis, who was back to being called Bluto after his mysterious name-switching run as "Brutus." Each episode also featured a public service portion, in which the spinach-eating swabby would educate his nephews Peepeye, Pupeye, and Pipeye on topics such as home safety or sensible dieting.
Dinky Dog was an 11-minute animated segment on "The All-New Popeye Hour." The show is about two girls, ditzy blonde Sandy and smart Monica, living with their uncle, Dudley. Sandy bought a cute pup who suddenly grew the size of a horse, and she is now stuck dragging Monica into always finding work and different ways to repair the damages Dinky causes at their poor uncle's expense. However, Dinky always seems to fix things in an unexpected way and is forgiven, much to uncle Dudley's dislike.
Yogi's Galaxy Goof-Ups is a 30-minute Saturday morning animated series produced by Hanna-Barbera Productions which aired on NBC from November 4, 1978 to September 1, 1979.

Buford is a smart but sleepy bloodhound who lives deep in the murky swamp county of Fenokee. He teams up with two teenagers, Cindy Mae and her older brother Woody, and the trio solves confusing mysteries that baffle Sheriff Muletrain Pettigrew and his overeager, but dimwitted deputy Goofer McGee. Buford's abilities are expanded with ears that revolve like radar dishes, and his nose responds to clues like a geiger counter; he also howls his heart out when the moon comes out and has a running feud with a brown raccoon. Nugget Nose is a short and feisty ghost prospector who finds adventure riding his invisible horse and is also a guardian to Wendy and Rita, two cowgirls who work at the Fuddy Dude Ranch whose owner is grouchy old Fenwick Fuddy. Nugget is always battling Fuddy and takes delight in harassing him in odd and humorous ways. Whenever the girls are in trouble, Wendy summons Nugget Nose by rubbing on her special nugget necklace.

In this flavor: Mickey, Nita (notably a Latina Character) and Billy Joe solve mysteries and crimes with their friend, Shmoo. Shmoo who is a two legged stretchable, white side-kick with the very familiar voice of Frank Welker. The Character originally appeared in Al Capp's comic strip Li'l Abner on August 31, 1948.

The kids investigate reports of strange occurrences for their publication: Mighty Mysteries Comics.
This show featured the Harlem Globetrotters basketball team as undercover superheroes, who would transform from their regular forms by entering magic portable lockers. Each member of the group had individual super powers and overall, all members of the group could fly. The Globetrotters received their missions from a basketball-styled talking satellite called the Crime Globe. Most episodes culminated in the Super Globetrotters challenging the villain and his henchmen to a basketball game for whatever treasure or device they sought. The civilian Globetrotters were always bested by the villains' super-powers in the first half, but they would use their own super-powers in the second half (often at the admonition of the Crime Globe) to save the day.

There were also guest appearances from members previously depicted in Challenge of the Super Friends and the Hanna-Barbera-created hero El Dorado, who was added to the show to provide cultural diversity. This would prove to be one of the longer-lived incarnations of the series (three years).
1980's CBS cartoon series, Drak Pack, showed the adventures of "Drak Jr." (Dracula's nephew), Howler and Frankie (the teenage descendants of The Werewolf and Frankenstein's monster) as they teamed up to fight the forces of evil. In this case, "evil" was O.G.R.E., the Organization for Generally Rotten Endeavours, led by Dr. Dred and his henchmen Toad, Mummy-Man, The Fly, and Vampira. The voice cast starred Alan Oppenheimer ("Skeletor" of He-Man) as uncle Count Dracula, Jerry Dexter ("Alan" of Josie and the Pussycats) as Drak Jr., Bill Callaway ("Aquaman" of Super Friends) as Howler and Frankie, Hans Conried (narrator of many Dr. Seuss specials) as Dr. Dred, Don Messick ("Scooby" on Scooby-Doo) as Toad and The Fly, Chuck McCann ("Ben/The Thing" on Fantastic Four) as Mummy-Man and Julie McWhirter (the voice of the animated Jeannie) as Vampira.

Remember Highway to Heaven? Two years before the Michael Landon-produced series went to air, and 12 years before the similar Touched by an Angel, Hanna-Barbera produced its animated series about an earthly angel solving problems.

Modeled after Robin Hood, the Biskitts still serve their recently deceased king while performing good deeds for the underprivileged inhabitants of their tiny island. In the narration it is explained that due to their good reputation for responsibility and security, other kings have entrusted their treasures to be safeguarded by the Biskitts. The villain of the series is the king's mean-spirited younger brother, King Max, who rules the neighboring Lower Suburbia. Why Max isn't crowned the new ruler of the Biskitts is never explained (although it is presumed the old king barred Max from succeeding him on account of Max's mean nature). In lieu of a proper coronation, Max constantly schemes to steal the jewels with the help of his hench-hounds Fang & Snarl and his jester Shecky (although Shecky was rather dimwitted and not always loyal to Max, as he even made friends with a Biskitt who shared his love of practical jokes). Biskitts are also in danger of being captured and eaten by a large wildcat named Scratch.

Super Friends returned to ABC on Saturday September 8, 1984 with a new thirty minute program that typically featured two 11-minute stories per episode. This incarnation featured Superman, Batman, Robin and Wonder Woman, and also the Wonder Twins and Gleek, this time teamed up with Firestorm. In addition to this core group, episodes during this season also featured some cameos by old and new Super Friends. The program lasted one season until August 31, 1985. The appeal of this version of the series at the time were the emphasis on actual villains from the comic books. Brainiac, Lex Luthor, Mirror Master, Mr Mxyzptlk, as well as Darkseid and his henchmen from Apokolips, all made appearances. Mirror Master only used pocket mirrors and larger mirrors to capture the Super Friends. He didn't use any ray guns or mirror traveling. Darkseid and his underlings were actually introduced into animated form in this series. One of the oddities of the show's opening credits is the depiction of Brainiac as he appeared in the 1970s and early 1980s even though on the episodes of this series, Brainiac's appearance was in line with the comic book's of that time period — being depicted in a more skeletal form. Another oddity was having Aquaman appear in the opening sequence but he never made an appearance throughout this run of the series. This season, and the one to follow, featured the “Super Powers” tag which was part of a marketing tie-in with a toyline of the same name produced by Kenner

The totems also served as the tribe's protectors, coming to life when needed through means of Princess Paw Paw's Mystic Moonstone, which she wore around her neck, to defend the village.

The new series did some updating to the original: strong independent teenage girl Jessie Bradshaw was introduced in the fourth episode and became a member of the Quest team. The producers also added Hardrock, a stone-like warrior from deep beneath the Earth, who helped out the Quests. They also split the original Quest plane into two ships - Questor 2 attached to Questor 1 but could detach for 1-man missions as necessary.

One was called "Dino's Dilemma", and the other was called "Captain Caveman".

Although they would have been this age in the '50s or '60s, the kids were far more like kids of the '80s, with computers, skateboards, and gadgets that were popularized far later. As in the original series, the villains of this series were always bad guys in rubber masks, a concept that they had gotten away from when Scrappy entered the show and the ghosts became real.
