    Are all Hanna-Barara releases going to Archives only or could the current Archives see general release dates sometime in the near future?

    My concerns is that the announcements for HB archives has been few and far between. There are many shows in their archive at the current pace it will take about 5-7 years for everything to be released. I am most interested in the following sets

    1. New Adventures of Gilligan
    2. Herculoids
    3. Captain Caveman and the teen angels
    4. Jeannie (i think there are issues with Sony)
    5. Partridge Family 2200AD (I think there are issues with Sony?)
    6. Banana Splits

    There are other shows via filmation that i like to see released
    1. Far out space nuts
    2. Shazam

    I am sure many of us have different choices to what we liked as a kid. I already have 35 shows on dvd with two in the mail and one on order. I am close to having all i want on dvd. It is great watching these shows again to re-live my childhood!! My special gal teases me about being in my 40s and that i still like cartoons.

    Far Out Space Nuts was a Sid and Marty Krofft show...would love to see it on a double-set with the Lost saucer!!! And why Herculoids is not on dvd I shall never know...ditto that for Shazzan!

    hey ethan,

    The herculoids frustrates me due to fact that space ghost/dino boy, jonny quest and now valley of dinosaurs have all been released. I would have thought they would have released herculods complete considering the segments are only 6-8 mins duration.

    HB has some great cartoons that are now out and that is good, but there seems to been a delay since the last announcement for valley of the dinosaurs. You just need to look at the shows like sealab 2020, which i thought would be next in their line. I believe there is a delay with new adventures of gilligan, which makes think they are delaying more release for similar issues. Ideally, i would love to see them release 2/month or 24/year that way they could complete the sets within
    four years, especially if there are over 96 cartoons. I may be off by # of cartoons.

    I also think the window is closing on the cartoon interest due to fact the cartoon generation of kids are now aged 35-48 years of age. Cartoons started to drop off in the 1980s to the present time. I am ignore shows like the simpsons/family guy/american dad as these shows are geared more to an adult audience.

    This is awesome news. They have been releasing these H-B sets in groups of 2 at a time, so I wonder what will be released with it?

    Something from the 1960's I'd guess.

    Great, Great news on Frankenstein Jr. This would have been in my top 5 HB to be released. I predict this will be their biggest HB title yet.
    If the next title is another 60's title I have a feeling it may finally be The Hercleoids since they seem to be going action titles recently and that is the biggest 60's action one left. Others would be Moby Dick/Mighty Mightor, Shazzan, Gulliver or Banana Splits.

    Glad to see FrankensteinJr/Impossibles getting a release.

    Wish WB would get to the Filmation Batman from '68.

    I posted a comment on the Warner Archive wall about wanting more Huck & Yogi. Here's my post:
    'Thanks for all the Hanna-Barbera releases. What about Yogi Bear's other shows like "Yogi's Gang", "Yogi's Treasure Hunt", and "Yo, Yogi!" Also, can we get more Huckleberry Hound on DVD as well as his TV movie "The Good, The Bad and Huckleberry Hound?"'
    15 hours ago · Like ·

    And here was their response:
    "Warner Archive Collection You'll be seeing more of Huck and Yogi later this year, and indeed you'll experience the intensity of THE GOOD, THE BAD...................AND HUCKLBERRY HOUND!"

    I would like to see the Huckleberry Hound Show finished and Yogi's Gang and Yogi's Space Race/Galaxy Goof-ups but I stop at 1980 for Hanna-Barbera.
    Good news for those who want the newer shows though and I'm sure we will get all the HB catalog eventually if we keep buying them.

    I would love to see New Adventures of Gilligan (which was schedule for Apr-May) along with the herculoids. I have 35+ cartoons completed and there is only a few that i would still want to have for my collections.

    Archive might be good for some releases, but for TV at least it's not. I hope WB rethinks there approach at releasing HB titles, but that would be like getting a leopard changing his spots.

    The other approach besides the archive is what they had been doing, nothing.

    This stuff isn't viable for a general retail release.

    I really would like Quick Draw McGraw. One of the few HB cartoons that was above a kid level.

    I thought there were some music clearance issues with some of the Huck and Quick Draw shows due to music?

    I know, DeWilson, about the music clearance issues and that issue has to be addressed but I just posted what they posted on my Facebook page. When they say more "Huck and Yogi", they could mean "Yogi's Gang" or "Yogi's Treasure Hunt." We just don't know. However, I read that statement from Warner Archive to mean "The Huckleberry Hound Show" itself. We'll just have to wait and see what happens. Maybe, just maybe, they'll also put out "Ruff and Reddy."
