New! 600 Hanna-Barbera Characters

(Thanks, Kelly Aarons)

  • Michael F.

    Wow, he really did a good job with getting all those characters in; he even included the minor ones! (Gary Coleman as an angel, anyone?)

  • uncle wayne

    That is an absolute RIOT! A best friend of mine (and I) are always “describing” how tall toons are (in “real life!”) I have (briskly) forwarded him this. At long last we finally get to know that Ogee is, indeed, only “this high!”

  • uncle wayne

    Holy #$%#@! Ogee is not even included! (Thank Gawrd we all already KNOW she’s about “this high!”

  • I’m gonna show off my nerdiness and say that they messed up with Penelope Pitstop. The silhouette used for the spin-off is actually the design from Wacky Races, not the spin-off.

    Yes, I can tell the difference even in silhouette.

  • Wow indeed – he even worked in Peter Puck! :0

    Very big credit to Juan there; it also doubles as a good timescale of Hanna-Barbera’s Production and shows since then =)

  • jordan reichek

    woah. that dude has a lot of spare time on his hands.

    neat though!

  • Christopher Smigliano

    Can’t find Scrappy-Doo, either! (is that a bad thing?)

    • Tim Nicholson

      Chris, he’s before Velma and Scooby.

    • Jay Sabicer

      He put Scrappy with the 1969 series, to save space, apparently.

      Several omissions, but still an impressive work.
      Does anyone have the small scale sketches H-B did through the 60’s and 70’s on their shows end credits?

      • Gerard de Souza

        Those small sketches would appear with the indicia (small print) when H-B characters were being printed in the old Gold Key Comics.

      • Christopher Smigliano

        They also used those indicas on merchandise.I wish someone would show them in a larger size. They were near unseeable.

  • Tim Nicholson

    That’s really good! But a few nitpicks:

    Although Ruby-Spears are technically considered Hanna-Barbera since they worked with H-B almost all the time, those R-S shows don’t really belong there.

    Seabert isn’t even Hanna-Barbera. Where’s Foofur (which is a Hanna-Barbera). Where’s The What-A-Cartoon! Show at? The 1993 Pink Panther had Paul Sebella, but that was MGM Animation. A Pup Named Scooby Doo premiered in 1988, not 1987. Where’s The Centurions? Where’s Sky Commanders?

    But I guess 600 is better than a odd number of characters.

  • The Ghost of Warner Bros. Past

    fabulous job! And a good-looking chart to boot.

  • Uh…why is the Inch High Private Eye so big? He’s only an inch high, hence the name.
    Also, Grape Ape is Waaaaaaaay too small. He’s 40 feet tall. They only mention it in every episode.

  • Wheelie and the Chopper bunch was by Ruby-Spears, not HB.
    There, I am king Nerd. Where is my Nerd crown?

    • Christopher Smigliano

      Nope, sorry, John, WHEELIE was definetly H-B.

  • Lee B.

    Actually, at the beginning of the graphic, it specifically states, “The image sizes are not to scale”.

  • slsn

    Interesting stuff.

    The Cow and Chicken silhouette cracks me up.

  • Sorry, I read the article and it says “size chart” and “Drawn to scale”, but did not bother to read the document. It would have been funnier to do those characters to scale.

  • Zach B.

    Wow… They’re all…pretty much the same sizes…

    Still cool.

  • Martin Juneau

    It’s a very good job of his part.

  • I saw characters from at least eight cartoons I had altogether forgotten (from the late 60s and early 70s). My God! How did we find the time to watch so much crap?!

  • Vince M.

    Okay, guess I gotta say it – Laurel was the skinny guy, Hardy was the fat guy! Gahhh.

  • Gerard de Souza

    Only two of the Globetrotters are correct for 1970. The others must be newer after I stopped watching new Sat A.M. cartoons.

  • Jeffers

    This is cool. Makes me wish someone should make a nice comprehensive encyclopedia of Hanna Barbera characters. It’s long overdue.

  • Blake

    God considering I’m a younger dude who’s Obsessed with Hanna Barbera this is like a freakin masterpiece to me. great job!

  • Wow! Great job. I’m shocked and amazed at how many of these cartoons I actually watched during my misspent youth.

    The posing on the silhouettes is just great.

    I’m not nitpicking, but The Mystery Machine seems awfully small compared to the Scooby-Doo characters. A) It’s going to get pretty ‘close’ in there, especially with Shaggy riding in the back with Scooby. B) Is there enough room for the Scooby Snacks?

  • Peter H

    In the 90s I worked for a company that made stings for Cartoon Network UK, and they had a folder of model sheets (mainly HB but a few MGM – Tom & Jerry, Avery’s Wolf) that CN had prepared for merchandising designers. I remember that that had a fold-out size guide that was rather similar. I don’t actually recall it being only silhouettes, but it may well have been.

  • Gary Pearson

    By the way, Peter Puck has returned to TV on Hockey Night in Canada. Hanna Barbera is no longer involved as the segments are done by CBC design. See a sample here…

  • Jonah Sidhom

    I actually did an art project last semester in college that involved silhouettes of Hanna Barbera characters. Except I cut them from the pages of a book. Looks like he chose a lot of the same reference images to copy that I did.


    Juan Pablo Bravo did a better job though. :)

  • Rooniman

    Boy, reading the chart made me realize by the late 70s/ early 80s, HB was just taking anything could get there hands on and turn it into a show.

  • Alfons Moline

    Great work! Yet there are a few series missing (in addition to several non-HB series who actually are by Ruby-Spears and others): These Are the Days, Potsworth & Co. (a.k.a. The Dream Patrol), Paddington Bear, Lucky Luke (yet this one was made for the European market and, as far as I know, never aired in the U.S.), The Little Rascals, Capitol Critters… Also in some series part of the key cast is missing (Jamie from Wait Till Your Father Gets Home, Precocia and Brutus the lion from The Roman Holidays, Rosemary and Sarge from Hong Kong Phooey…). But anyway -BRAVO for J. P. Bravo!

  • Wow. I knew Hanna Barbera made a lot of shows, but I never knew they made this many. I haven’t seen like 85% of these. Any of them any good?

  • Lara

    It’s gorgeous. What a cool love letter to the studio.

  • Ryan

    A great homage.
    And a nice stroll down memory lane.

    Hmmm, Penelope Pitstop or Josie McCoy? eternal questions…

  • RobAlister

    I don’t know what’s more shocking. The size of it all or the fact that I know most of these shows/characters.

    @ DarylT – Most of them are pretty great. Even the lesser known ones.

  • Andrew Kieswetter

    It gives me great feelings of nostalgia when I see the likes of the Cattanooga Cats and Goober & the Ghost Chasers there.

  • Bill Field

    I can’t believe that I didn’t comment on this earlier… I see a few flaws but overall it is one of the coolest Hanna Barbera “things” to come down the road in a while!

  • Greg

    In my opinion, I don’t really consider the pre-2001 Cartoon Network characters to be Hanna-Barbera characters because Cartoon Network Studios was the true company responsible for World Premiere Toons (aka The What-A-Cartoon! Show aka The Cartoon Cartoon Show), Dexter’s Laboratory, Johnny Bravo, Cow & Chicken, I.M. Weasel, and The Powerpuff Girls, although technically they could because Cartoon Network Studios was originally founded in 1994 as a division of Hanna-Barbera until the death of Bill Hanna.
