Happy Birthday, Hanna-Barbera

28 Jun 2017 - By TW Staff

Connoisseurs of classic cartoons have a major milestone to celebrate this summer: the 60th anniversary of legendary animation studio Hanna-Barbera. To mark the occasion, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment is releasing the “Diamond Collection,” a comprehensive catalog of timeless favorites from the 50s, 60s and 70s like The Jetsons, Yogi Bear, The Flintstones and more, many of which were unavailable on DVD or digital until now.

The Hanna-Barbera studio was prolific, releasing over 3,500 half-hours of animated programming, hit television features, PSAs, shorts, commercials, and specials. Hanna and Barbera's  success was not limited to the U.S.; their cartoons were distributed in over 175 countries and 45 languages. For their achievements, the duo won eight Emmy Awards, seven Academy Awards, a Golden Globe Award, a Governor’s Award and earned a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

The “Diamond Collection” honors this legacy with new packaging and digital content plus discount pricing and select free episodes surrounding the anniversary on July 7. The collections are rolling out now through December 2017.
