Christmas gift ideas for fans of old-school Hanna-Barbera cartoons

Today’s cartoons just don’t have the same soul. I loved Saturday mornings as a kid, filled with cartoons before heading to the park to play baseball. While He-Man and Thundercats were some of my favorite shows growing up (and still today, to be honest), neither came from the powerhouse of kids’ cartoons Hanna-Barbera. William Hanna and Joseph Barbera were responsible for some of the most memorable animated shows, from Scooby-Doo to the first ever primetime cartoon, the Flintstones. But there were so many others that don’t receive the recognition they deserve. Here are a few that filled me with nostalgia as I scrolled through Amazon.com:

Scooby-Doo has had a number of reboots through the years, so many that the gang warrants its own separate list:

If you want something that is specifically geared toward the holidays, consider Yogi Christmas these Christmas specials:

If you don’t feel like gluing yourself to a television set for all those cartoons, maybe you would like to read instead. DC Comics did a special crossover featuring some of their biggest superheroes teaming up with the likes of Dyno-Mutt and Space Ghost. DC Meets Hanna-Barbera was released last year, and Volume Two will be available on Christmas Eve this year!

So you don’t want to watch, and you don’t want to read… Huckleberry Hound you just want to play? Funko has you covered! Check out all these Funko POP Hanna-Barbera figures available:
