10 Images That Show Marvel Heroes As Drawn By Hanna-Barbera

From the 1960s to the 1980s, William Hanna and Joseph Barbera were the kings of Saturday morning. Each week, Hanna-Barbera provided children filled with sugary cereal a chance to watch anthropomorphic bears, dogs, and hippos make humans look silly. In the mid-60s, they turned their attention to the creation of TV-based superheroes. The result came in the form of Birdman, Space Ghost, and the Herculoids.

Though different in story, the Hanna-Barbera studio produced a certain look to their characters. You can see it in shows like Super Friends. While the company worked with DC for years, we wondered how Marvel superheroes would look if drawn by their illustrators. To provide some examples, here are 10 images that show Marvel heroes as drawn in the style of Hanna-Barbera.

10 Fantastic Four

This is not fan art. The Fantastic Fourwas part of ABC's Saturday morning block in 1967. Within its 22 episodes, the show tried to stay true to the comic. Hence, the appearance of villains like Doctor Doom and Galactus.

While in the style of other Hanna-Barbera heroes, the cartoon FF was also similar to their comic book appearances. Stan Lee and Jack Kirby were part of the cartoon's production team to ensure there was little change between the two media's. Out of all the Fantastic Four cartoons, this one is the most remembered.

9 The Thing

The Thing also had a Hanna-Barbera-based show in the late 70s. Episodes were paired with new installments of The Flintstones. We guess it was due to the rock theme.

Marvel didn't do much with this version of the Fantastic Four hero. It's the reason he's portrayed as a teenager with a magic ring that turns him into the Thing. Also, it's the reason he resembles a character drawn by a Hanna-Barbera illustrator than someone from the House of Ideas.

8 The Avengers

We can see some comparisons to Marvel's superhero team in this piece by @tomkrhone. Ant-Man is replaced by the Hanna-Barbera hero Atom Ant. We're not sure why he has four arms when the original character has two.

Also, Dynomutt is a replacement for Iron Man, and he's more determined here than he is on his show. How about Black Widow? It's a toss-up between Hong Kong Phooey and El Kabong. Since Widow doesn't use a guitar to bash her opponents, will go with Phooey.

7 Defenders

This is not based on the Marvel comic book that featured Doctor Strange, Silver Surfer, and the Hulk. This is the group that appeared on Netflix. The artist does a nice job showing these street-level heroes as the Defenders of New York.

The homage to the Super Friends title card is a good choice. It reminds us of the title sequences that show used in the last two seasons as it began to match up to DC continuity. The thing we want to know is if the Power Friends would punch people or talk them into surrendering.

6 Guardians Of The Galaxy

This is the first of two examples of how Hanna-Barbera may have drawn Marvel's Guardians. We see a diversity of timelines and personalities in this version by jayfosgitt. Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm are Gamora and Star-Lord, respectively. Meanwhile, Mutley is Rocket and Great Ape is a version of Groot.

We're not sure who portrays Drax in this team. His mannerisms seem to be those of Captain Caveman minus his ankle-long hair. Though the captain and his Marvel counterpart have the same sense of humor, the real Drax is probably stronger.

5 Scooby Guardians

The Guardians-Scooby Gang match-ups are logical. Fred and Daphne are the requisite protagonists while Scoob portrays Rocket. He's missing a weapon in his paws. Perhaps he only holds one when he gets a Scooby Snack.

RELATED: DC: 5 Best Team-Ups With Hanna-Barbera Characters (& 5 Worst)

Shaggy and Velma confuse us. Shag has the body for Groot but is more verbal than the Marvel character. He could switch roles with Velma, except she's talkative. The addition of Scrappy-Doo as Drax could even things out.

4 Original X-Men

The Hanna-Barbera superhero cartoons of the 60s always had a title card after the introduction. It featured a still-shot of the hero or team along with the episode's title. If the X-Men were drawn by the company's artists, it would look something like the corresponding image.

This is a fine homage by NMRosario to those cartoons and the mid-60s X-Men. Their colorful uniforms represent their time when they graduated from Xavier's school. We're curious how the studio would handle a powerful story like "The Sentinels Live"? Especially since it was drawn by Neal Adams.

3 The Inhumans

At first glance, we weren't sure of the characters in the Hanna-Barbera version of the Inhumans by jayfosgitt. Then we saw the corn-cob pipe in Black Bolt's mouth and knew — Popeye.

In the late 1970s, Hanna-Barbera gained the rights to the Popeye family and began production on new cartoons. The characters seen in the image represent how they were drawn. Overall, they're characteristics fit the Inhuman roles. The artist did a fine job when he replaced Lockjaw with Eugene the Jeep.

2 Avengers: Endgame

Two instances of the most recent Avengers movie. First, is the one titled Toonvengers: Toongame. Thanks to Cartoon Network, the Hanna-Barbera studio experienced a resurgence. With a change in artistic style, they produced several popular cartoons. Among them — Dexter's Laboratory, Samurai Jack, and The Powerpuff Girls.

RELATED: The 10 Best Episodes Of Samurai Jack Seasons 1-4, Ranked (According To IMDB)

The characters in these programs are represented in liu-psypher's take on Endgame. Samurai Jack as Captain America and Dexter as Tony Stark make sense as they have similar traits as the Marvel characters. The costume variation worn by Jack makes a great alternate history outfit for Steve Rogers.

1 Endgame: Classic Characters

This version of the Endgame cast by @lartist is for fans of classic Hanna-Barbera characters. You have to look carefully to see which character resembles a member of the Avengers.

It seems like Frankenstein, Jr. is Iron Man while his young scientist creator, Buzz Conroy, is Captain America. Fred Flinstone is Hulk while his alien pal Gazoo is the Vision. What made us giggle is Yogi Bear as Nick Fury. Also, Rosie the Robot as Thanos feels right.

It all started with a game of cat and mouse

William Hanna and Joseph Barbera met while both working for MGM’s animation department. The successfully collaborated for years on the ‘Tom & Jerry Show’ earning multiple awards for their work.

Following MGM’s decision to cease production of new cartoons, the dynamic duo decided to strike out on their own. Their animation studio was founded July 7, 1957.

The collaboration would lead to dozens of news shows and characters over the next 40+ years.

In addition to first-run television shows, many of the cartoons found new life in syndication, introducing them to new generations.

The studio was eventually acquired by Turner Broadcasting. The newly launched Cartoon Network provided a new wave of fans with exposure to the classic characters. After Turner merged with Time Warner in 1996, Hanna-Barbera became a subsidiary of Warner Animation. For a time, Cartoon Network Studios acted as a subsidiary until Warner Bros. folded Hanna-Barbera into the larger entity early in the new millennium.

While many prior cartoons were recycled from movie shorts, Hanna-Barbera was one of the first studios to produce content directly for television.  Step back in time to look at some of the many characters Hanna and Barbera or their company helped bring to life.

Can You Name All of These Hanna-Barbera Cartoons From One Image?

About This Quiz

Were you glued to the television on Saturday mornings? See how many of these Hanna-Barbera cartoons you can identify.

Although Hanna-Barbera itself is no longer in business, having ceased operations in 2001, the cartoons created by the animation studio will live on forever on the small screen. 

Hanna-Barbera was the brainchild of William Hanna and Joseph Barbera, the creators of Tom and Jerry. They founded their own animation studio in 1957 but eventually became part of Warner Brothers. The duo was a force in the animation industry because of the popularity of Saturday morning cartoons and produced such masterpieces as "Scooby Doo," "The Flintstones," "Yogi Bear," "The Jetsons," and the "Smurfs." However, in the 1980s, when weekday afternoon television eclipsed the popularity of Saturday morning cartoons, Hanna-Barbera lost ground in the industry.

Still, the duo and their animation studio won numerous awards, including Academy awards, Emmy awards, and Golden Globes awards. The partners even have a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Neither Hanna nor Barbera are alive today, but their cartoon masterpieces will live on forever.

If we give you an image, do you think you can identify each of these iconic cartoons? Let's get started.

Biography

Before the rise of basic cable and syndication, Saturday mornings for many children in America consisted of watching cartoons on TV on one of three available channels. From 1958 through the 1980s, a vast majority of those cartoons bore the Hanna-Barbera (1957-2001) imprint. Creating hit shows such as The Flintstones, Scooby-Doo, Jonny Quest, Super Friends, and The Smurfs, Hanna-Barbera was an animation powerhouse.

Hanna-Barbera Productions was formed in 1957 by William Hanna and Joseph Barbera, who had been partners in animation at MGM Studios where they created the memorable Tom and Jerry shorts. They left MGM when the studio stopped production on animated films. Hanna and Barbera achieved immediate success on television with The Huckleberry Hound Show in 1958, followed later by the highly popular prime-time series, The Flintstones. Through the next thirty years, Hanna-Barbera produced an astonishing 249 individual cartoon series for television—totaling over 1,200 hours of original episodes. 

When Cartoon Network was formed in 1992, Hanna-Barbera supplied most of the cartoons. Hanna-Barbera was eventually absorbed by Warner Bros., but the cartoons remain available in syndication and on DVD.

The impact of Hanna-Barbera’s cartoons is evident in today’s popular culture, from Fred Flintstone hawking Fruity Pebbles cereal to numerous parodies on TV's Family Guy cartoon to the live-action Smurfs films to the continued creation of new Scooby-Doo television series, comic books, and animated and live-action movies.

Top 20 Hanna-Barbera Cartoon Characters of the '50s and ''60s
Hanna-Barbera PhotoHanna-Barbera Title



Bill Hanna and Joseph Barbera?s first collaboration was in 1940 with Tom and Jerry?s ?Puss Gets the Boot? and ?The Night Before Christmas.? Both shorts were nominated for Oscars. The next three Tom and Jerry cartoons from the duo, ?Yankee Doodle Mouse,? (1943), ?Mouse Trouble,? (1944) and ?Cat Concerto,? (1945), won the Hanna-Barbera team consecutive Oscars.

When MGM closed their cartoon division in 1957, Hanna and Barbera began their own cartoon company (the name ?Hanna-Barbera? was the result of a coin toss for whose name would go first). Since then, Bill Hanna and Joseph Barbera were responsible for the creation of more than 300 characters. As a team, they have won nearly every entertainment award possible, including eight Emmys. The duo has been inducted into the Television Academy Hall of Fame, and given a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Both of these legendary animators have since passed away. Bill Hanna passed away from throat cancer on March 22, 2001. Joe Barbera passed from natural causes on December 18, 2006.

10 Most Memorable Hanna-Barbera Characters

In the year 1940, aspiring artists William Hanna and Joseph Barbera met at Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer and produced their first short together, Puss Gets the Boot, that featured the prototypes of the iconic duo Tom and Jerry.

RELATED: The 10 Most Powerful Hanna-Barbera Characters Ever, Ranked

From there, the path of success for the duo take has never been very clear, making them legends in the animation industry with TV shows like The Flintstones, The Jetsons, Scooby-Doo, Where Are You? and many more to what becomes the Hanna-Barbera brand. And along with childhood-defining shows comes their iconic characters that have become household names. Here are their ten most memorable creations.

 

10 Space Ghost

Created by Hanna-Barbera but designed by Alex Toth, Space Ghost had his start as a standard superhero who fights supervillains in space with his sidekicks Jan, Jace and Blip the monkey. The titular show is a product of the ’60s.

But in the ’90s, he was reimagined as a host for the adult animated parody talk show Space Ghost Coast to Coast, which was aired in Cartoon Network, then to Adult Swim. With castmates Zorak and Moltar, the show received a cult following that marked Space Ghost as a favorite.

9 Boo-Boo Bear

Created alongside Yogi Bear, Boo-Boo first appeared in The Huckleberry Hound Show in 1958 with his recognizable purple bowtie. As Yogi’s most loyal companion, Boo-Boo acts as Yogi’s moral compass in every antic that the better-than-the-average bear pulls off.

With his laidback personality and his lucid intellect, he is frequently seen as the straight man to Yogi’s playful personality. And just like his companion, Boo-Boo became a staple to the cartoon world and appeared alongside Yogi (except for two episodes). In the 2010 movie, he is voiced by Justin Timberlake.

8 George Jetson

The patriarch to the Jetson family, George Jetson is the typical everyman in a scientifically advanced future. Living in Orbit City with his family (his wife Jane, his son Elroy and his daughter Judy) and his dog Astro, Jetson is a caring father, constantly thrown with problems in his work and domestic life.

RELATED: MBTI® Of The Jetsons Characters

His personality is almost resembling Fred Flintstone, down to the catchphrase with “Hooba-dooba-dooba!” (Well, this is Hanna-Barbera’s counterpart for The Flintstones in space.) While Rosey the Robot is iconic as the rest, George Jetson best represents the Jetsons.)

7 Huckleberry Hound

With his Southern drawl, his blue-hued skin and his yellow hat, Huckleberry Hound is another popular Hanna-Barbera character with a chill personality and a memorable trademark. Even as he faced painful obstacles or antics, he would keep his cool and end up whistling the song “Year of Jubilo”. Though, he is mostly known for his misled rendition of “Oh My Darling, Clementine”.

All the while, he is seen as a jack-of-all-trades with no coherent timeframe, as he is sometimes seen as a Roman gladiator, an outlaw, and a rocket scientist.

6 Penelope Pitstop

A creation of not Hanna-Barbera themselves (since she is designed Iwao Takamoto and Jerry Eisenberg at the last minute), Penelope Pitsop is the archetypal girly girl with the blonde ponytailed hair, bright pink uniform, Southern belle finesse and white go-go boots. Her character is an homage to Natalie Wood’s Maggie DuBois from The Great Race.

Like any girly girl, she is seen as a damsel-in-distress in Wacky Races and the spinoff The Perils of Penelope Pitstop. However, she is given a more competent and level-headed personality in the 2017 reboot.

5 Barney Rubble

Born Bernard Matthew Rubble, Barney Rubble is the caveman husband to Betty, father to Bamm-Bamm and best friend to Fred Flintstone. Like other Hanna-Barbera characters, he has a chill personality and a dutiful attitude that makes him work alongside Fred’s schemes. He even lends a memorable New Jersey accent that blends along with his chuckle-like voice.

RELATED: 10 Quotes From The Flintstones That Are Still Hilarious Today

Barney’s character is based on Art Carney’s Ed Norton of The Honeymooners, down to the scheming attitude. He almost shares the same interests as Fred, though at the time he is more level-headed than him.

4 Yogi Bear

He is smarter than the average bear. He is the homegrown bear of the Jellystone Park. And he is the first breakout character in the Hanna-Barbera pantheon after his appearance in The Huckleberry Hound Show. He is Yogi Bear.

As one of Hanna-Barbera’s most popular and beloved characters, Yogi is a happy-go-lucky bear whose trademark antic is to steal pic-a-nic baskets within Jellystone with his companion Boo-Boo. Much like Barney, he possesses Ed Norton’s personality in his schemes, especially in (unsuccessfully) outwitting Park Ranger Smith. Thanks to this simple premise, Yogi Bear became extremely popular, down to his titular movie.

3 Fred Flintstone

Yabba-dabba-doo! It is Fred Flintstone, the main character of the first-ever animated sitcom featured in primetime. With his prominent presence in the show, he soared in popularity on the show’s run from 1960 to 1966 until the present day.

RELATED: 10 Hilarious Ways The Flintstone’s Economy Makes No Sense

Husband to Wilma, father to Pebbles and best friend to Barney, Fred is the archetypal father figure who is often loud, hot-tempered, assertive, slightly clumsy and conniving when it comes to his get-rich-quick schemes. Yet, he remains a caring father and a loyal friend. He is also a skilled bowler and a member of the “Loyal Order of Water Buffaloes”.

2 Tom and Jerry

The quintessential love-hate cartoon duo, Tom and Jerry have touched the hearts of children and adults alike from their debut as prototypes in 1940. It is hard to see who is better, but both creatures complement each other with the degree of their tenacity toward each other.

Tom is the ill-tempered cat, who constantly chases Jerry around his owner’s house and sets up traps that backfire. Jerry is the quick-witted mouse, who quickly outwits Tom and ends up victorious in his schemes. Their films shorts of their hunter/prey chase have made them cornerstones of animation and icons of pop culture.

1 Scooby-Doo

While Tom and Jerry are the quintessential cartoon characters, Scooby-Doo is the quintessential Hanna-Barbera character. (Though, he is created by Joe Ruby, Ken Spears and Iwao Takamoto.) A Great Dane, a lifetime confidant of Shaggy Rogers and a mascot to Mystery Inc., Scooby-Doo had an enduring prominence throughout cartoon history.

With the numerous TV shows and films, Scooby-Doo always remains as the loyal dog to Shaggy and the gang with his penchant for food, Scooby Snacks, R-word dictation, solving mysteries, climbing on Shaggy’s arm and catchphrases like “Ruh-roh!” and “Scooby-Dooby-Doo!” Whereas Shaggy, Fred, Velma and Daphne are as iconic as he is, Scooby-Doo best represents the charm of the Scooby-Doo shows, just for being a loyal dog.
