    Hanna Barbera or Warner Bros?

    Which cartoons did you like when growing up as a kid? The ones from Hanna Barbera or Warner Bros?

    Warner Brothers, hands down. For one thing, Hanna-Barbera was just getting started. The real competitors were Disney and MGM. But kids loved the outrageous mayhem and manic lunacy of WB. Disney was too mild & cutsey, and MGM too wannabe, and not very original, nor terribly funny.

    Hanna Barbera---I get more nostalgic over some of their old cartoons compared to WB.

    ..Such as this one:



    I was so disappointed that they didn't allow the series to finish.

    The answer to this question is going to be heavily age-biased. The under-20 set don't even know what Hanna-Barbera is.

    H-B had some good cartoon characters.
    Even a gay one: Snagglepuss ("Heavens to Murgatroyd!")


    how do you know yogi and boo-boo weren't lovers...? or quickdraw mcgraw and baba-louie? LOL.

    btw, i think porky pig was probably gay too.

    FWIW, the music to WB cartoons is unrivaled. H-B had some decent theme songs, but the scoring was nowhere near the level of what carl stallings was able to do. part of it, i'm guessing, had to do with the amount of time that WB had to do their films (they were more theatrical), whereas the H-B cartoon was turned out much faster since it was TV based. that's just my guess, though.

    on scale, cinema vs. television, warner bro's. vs. hanna barbera, i would have to go with warner bro's. though hanna barbera was to tv what warner bro's was to the motion picture venue. warner bro's volume, based in the golden age of motion picture studios, the number of people involved who were brilliant, and in their prime, and sheer number of characters and serial's, bugs, daffy, porky, marvin, ( my favorite, i do believe its possible he was the first gay martian icon_smile.gif, sylvester, tweety, and more...

    having said that, j'quest had me glued to the tv, the show was "mature" yet interesting to follow. television as a venue could still learn a lesson from that show, tv can entertain, and be mature both, without pandering.

    on a side note, i wish the revival of j'quest had lived longer, those computer animated muscle suits were smoking hot!

    The Carl Stalling Project is available on CD - it's the full selection of all the music (including scratch tracks and demos) for his WB cartoon scores.
    Great stuff.
