    I would think they will at least do Touche Turtle as he is as popular or maybe more popular than Wally Gator which is why this was a strong show together. I don't think I could pick which one of the two I like better. Lippy the Lion in a minor HB but still good.

    Randy,

    I would have to agree with you about Touche Turtle being next up, since to the best of my knowledge it was the only H-B cartoon series to feature Bill Thompson (the original voice of Droopy Dog in most of that character's MGM cartoons; though at times he was voiced by Daws Butler, Don Messick and even director/creator Tex Avery himself); I also researched that Thompson did do a one-off voiceover on The Flintstones. His guardian and sidekick, Dum-Dum, was voiced by Alan Reed (also known as the original voice of Fred Flintstone).

    I have very little familiarity with Touche Turtle. I don't think he was featured on any subsequent HB series, although I may be mistaken.

    Actually, Touche Turtle and Lippy the Lion were featured on Yogi's Gang as well as Yogi's Treasure Hunt. So, I don't see why they can't be released on DVD as well like Wally Gator will be.

    for Quick Draw , we were told around 2007, that they had plans to release it, but the material they had, to work with, was too poor quality, and restoring it would cost a lot of money..... so they skipped over it. there may or may not have also been money issues to get the musical scores......no idea.

    same for Wally Gator? i think,
    but it's now 12 years later.... and we get at least that one.....
    which is good.

    On Facebook, WAC has a GIF this morning showing some of their new-to-DVD releases for July, and one of the releases is the complete series of Lippy The Lion And Hardy Har Har.

    Awesome news, again... if true! So Touche Turtle shouldn't be far behind in getting a DVD release, too.

    When I asked them why they were not releasing the complete Wally Gator show and that I was dissapointed for this decision, they replied and said that they felt releasing them separate was the best way to release them since they were originally released to be shown together or separate. This is why each one has its own opening and closing credits. So based on their reply it sounded like they intend to release all 3 close together. I wouldn't be surprised to see Touche Turtle in August.

    If Yogi's Space Race is ever to be released on DVD, then not only should it have all of the commercial break bumpers between all the four segments, but also before the opening credits, a 30-second teaser... I know when they re-assembled Space Stars for its DVD release in 2013, those opening teasers were there before the intro sequence.

    I wonder how well they remastered Lippy the Lion and Wally Gator (as well as Touche Turtle--if that's coming )--the syndicated prints of these three cartoons looked very raw . I wonder if they were able to find the masters to these.

    I would love to have it released that way too but at this point I would be happy to have the complete show without the bumpers just as long as its the full show with all the segments and they don't release it as separate segments.

    Those raw looking elements is what delayed the release of the complete show that was announced by WHV in 2007. So I would think they done a complete re-mastering of these by now.

    Looks like this is a throw back to the New Scooby movies style show with guest stars which is probably why they chose to release the new Scooby movies on blu ray before SD Where are you.

    Right. I'm so glad they ditched the Be Cool SD character designs.

    It's great that, after being dead for years, HB releases are alive again.

    Yes, overall, it looks very traditional.

    I hope they didn't show that Lippy the Lion ad just to tease us. I sure need to add to my collection!
