There's something more going on with this whole picture, so if Hanna Barbera and Toho had it made in association with one another, CN and Boomerang aired the whole thing for years.
But when the DVDs comes out it's only the first season and through Timeless and not Hanna Barbera's current owner WB. But Timeless being bought out by Dreamworks should make those rights transfer, but still no second season. And as you said they've kept the digital versions up but nothing for season 2.
So would we think Toho got to keep home media distribution for both and licensed it to Timeless who is now sitting on it? Or was it WB that let it go Timeless before they realized that HB had infinite Archive potential? is it possible they actually split the seasons up as part of the distribution deal?
There really is a lack of information on this one to really not be sure either way. Just looking content wise anybody know if there may have been something that would be causing problems for home media?
EDIT: So i did a little more digging, from someone on an old Toonzone post they say that Toho on purpose only licensed Season 1 to Classic Media, and since they are OOP that agreement may not even still be standing, So hope on the rest would fall on Toho most likely.

But hey i can only be so critical but some things do bother me a bit, but to each their own. Even if it's odd conspiracies, not wanting to use terms correctly or just throwing hasty generalizations."
