14/16. Surprised that Ruby Spears, who produced the Rambo and Hulk Hogan's Rock and Roll Wrestling wasn't listed.

"Captain Planet" was a close one, but I guessed correctly that they meant not H-B. DiC did indeed produce the show at the start for TBS, but after Turner Broadcasting bought Hanna-Barbera, the show eventually switched hands to H-B in 1993.

Since the question asked "Who *brought* the world Captain Planet?" I surmised that they meant who produced the show at its premiere. Glad I guessed correctly! :)

A lot of the Filmation shows are easy to identify just from the sheer amount of stock footage that was re-used in every episode. H-B at least tried not get too repetitious with their visuals (their CONCEPTS, on the other hand, are a different story).

Remember also in "The Brady Kids" Filmation used the same animation pattern that made the kids move like the Archies whenever they played a song? Of course, they had to add in Cindy, who was playing a guitar.

13/16. Mostly because of Boomerang from Cartoon Network (it's all coming back to you)

I thought I knew my H-B cartoons. 14 out of 16 right.

I got 15 out of 16, but The Berenstain Bears is a trick question. It was not Hanna-Barbera. It was only licensed by them from Southern Star Productions (then called Hanna-Barbera Australia, when both were owned by Taft Broadcasting.) A technicality but a fact. Not one HB animator touched those shows. So I really got 16 out of 16. METV knows less than I do about this subject. I was Daws Butler's protege, wrote the book Daws Butler, Characters Actor, and was personal friends with Joe Barbera.
