Were these classic cartoons made by Hanna-Barbera or not?

Who produced Jonny Quest, The Archie Show and Inspector Gadget?

Producing partners Joseph Hanna and William Barbera are giants in the animation world. They have created classic characters like Yogi Bear, Scooby-Doo and, of course, The Flintstones.

But how well do you know their other cartoons? Can you tell which series are Hanna-Barbera and which were made by competitors like Filmation and DIC?

Here are 16 classic animated shows. Try to guess if they were made by Hanna-Barbera or not!

A lot of the Filmation shows are easy to identify just from the sheer amount of stock footage that was re-used in every episode. H-B at least tried not get too repetitious with their visuals (their CONCEPTS, on the other hand, are a different story).

13/16. Mostly because of Boomerang from Cartoon Network (it's all coming back to you)

I thought I knew my H-B cartoons. 14 out of 16 right.

I got 15 out of 16, but The Berenstain Bears is a trick question. It was not Hanna-Barbera. It was only licensed by them from Southern Star Productions (then called Hanna-Barbera Australia, when both were owned by Taft Broadcasting.) A technicality but a fact. Not one HB animator touched those shows. So I really got 16 out of 16. METV knows less than I do about this subject. I was Daws Butler's protege, wrote the book Daws Butler, Characters Actor, and was personal friends with Joe Barbera.

Oops, 10...guess I wasn’t always paying attention to that.

Oh, I got 16/16 the first time around, but there a couple of questions that could trap folks. While the Berenstain Bears series was animated by Hanna-Barbera Australia (now Southern Star), the original animated specials were produced by Perpetual Motion Pictures. Also, there has been a recent revival series that aired on PBS in 2003 that was produced by Nelvana and AGOGO Entertainment. The answer for the Captain Planet answer was correct, but Hanna-Barbera did produce episodes of that series from 1993-1996.

I'm sorry. I'm a cartoon nerd. Been studying the history for decades.

10/16 I didn't watch many of these other than Jonny. Warner, Disney, Mighty Mouse and Tom and Jerry, The Flintstones, Yogi, Huckleberry Hound, Quick Draw Mcgraw were some of my favorites.
