Hanna-Barbera

The Hanna-Barbera headquarters in Los Angeles in the 1990s. The "swirling star" logo on the right was designed by [[Saul Bass]] in 1979. Hanna-Barbera ( ) was an American animation studio and production company, active from 1957 until it was absorbed into Warner Bros. Animation in 2001. It was founded on July 7, 1957, by William Hanna and Joseph Barbera following Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer's decision to close its in-house cartoon studio, and was formerly headquartered on Cahuenga Blvd from 1960 until 1998 and at the Sherman Oaks Galleria in Sherman Oaks, both in Los Angeles, California.

In 1958, they debuted ''The Huckleberry Hound Show'' (the first animated series to win an Emmy), followed by ''The Flintstones'' (the first prime time animated sitcom) and along with ''The Yogi Bear Show'', ''Jonny Quest'', ''Scooby-Doo, Where Are You!'' and the Saturday morning phenomenon ''The Smurfs'', just a few of the 3,000 half-hour cartoons Hanna-Barbera produced.

From the 1960s to the 1980s, Hanna-Barbera may have usurped Disney as the most successful animation company in the world, with its characters ubiquitous across different types of media and a myriad of consumer products. The profitability of Saturday-morning cartoons was eclipsed by weekday afternoon syndication after the studio's fortunes declined by the 1980s.

Taft Broadcasting acquired Hanna-Barbera in 1966 and retained ownership until 1991 when Turner Broadcasting System acquired the studio, using the back catalog to establish Cartoon Network the following year.

Before Hanna died in 2001, Hanna-Barbera as a standalone company was folded into Warner Bros. Animation and since then, the Hanna-Barbera name has been used primarily for marketing and copyright purposes. Provided by Wikipedia
