Hanna Barbera Wall Decals
by RoomMates Peel and Stick Décor
Hanna Barbera created some of the most iconic cartoon characters back in the day, and of course Fred Flintstone and George Jetson were a couple of the most popular. I recently obtained giant wall decals from RoomMates of the great prehistoric and futuristic families for my mancave, and they look spectacular.
These wall decals were easier to apply than Hong Kong Phooey was, since there were fewer pieces to work with. The Flintstones wall decal is only four pieces: the car with the family, the smoke from the back wheel, “Yabba-Dabba-Doo,” and the nameplate; the Jetsons wall decal is one for the spaceship and several small decorative pieces.
If you are a Hanna Barbera fan, you will want to grab these wall decals while they last; there are only a few left, and they will not be reprinted once they’re gone. In addition to the Flintstones, Jetsons, and Hong Kong Phooey, RoomMates also offers Yogi Bear and Tom & Jerry. Looney Tunes designs have also been discontinued, so if you like Taz, Daffy Duck, or Tweety Bird, go ahead and grab those too!

Hong Kong Phooey Giant Wall Decal
by RoomMates Peel and Stick Décor
Interior decoration has never been easier, now that wall graphics have become so popular. RoomMates Peel and Stick Décor has a great selection of licensed decals, including Marvel, DC Comics, Disney, Warner Brothers, and Hanna Barbera, as well as designs for the more “mature” adult (something I will never be called). I received Hong Kong Phooey, one of the most underappreciated Hanna Barbera cartoons, and it didn’t take long to find a place to stick him up on the wall.
The decal (which comes in several smaller sections) measures 36″x38″ when assembled, so you have to choose your space carefully if you cover your walls as much as I do. I have several baseball posters, concert photos, and sports banners covering a lot of wall space in the basement (or, as I like to call it, “the mancave”); fortunately I was able to find a perfect spot for Hong Kong Phooey above the sofa. Once I chose the location and made sure the wall was clean, I went to work applying the decal. This proved to be a little more difficult than I anticipated because of the size of the individual pieces. Since the product is designed to not damage painted walls, though, it was no trouble to keep moving the pieces until I positioned them just right.
The large Hong Kong Phooey comes in six individual pieces, plus the nameplate and a smaller graphic of the character (in one piece). Some designs have fewer individual pieces, others are larger. Those who have never applied a wall decal might have to peel and stick a few times, but once it is in the right place, it looks great.
