Every film in the Hanna-Barbera Superstars 10 have been released individually on Blu-ray and as a collected set through Warner Archive.

Legendary animators William Hanna and Joseph Barbera created a series of 10 feature-length animated films for television. All of which would air September 20, 1987-November 20, 1988. They brought back many of their star cast members in reprising roles of fan favorite characters, including Yogi Bear, Scooby-Doo, The Flintstones, The Jetsons, Top Cat, Huckleberry hound, and more. Among the ten films, Yogi Bear and Scooby-Doo star in three of them. Meanwhile, we’re privy to the only meeting between The Flintstones and The Jetsons. If there is a live-action crossover that is waiting to happen, it’s with those two families. Judy Jetson also gets a solo outing. Meanwhile, Huckleberry Hound stars in an all-star Western. Top Cat and gang find themselves in Beverly Hills.

The films include:

  • Yogi’s Great Escape
  • Scooby-Doo Meets the Boo Brothers
  •  The Jetsons Meet the Flintstones
  • Yogi Bear and the Magical Flight of the Spruce Goose
  • Top Cat and the Beverly Hills Cats
  • The Good, the Bad, and Huckleberry Hound
  • Rockin’ with Judy Jetson
  • Scooby-Doo and the Ghoul School
  • Scooby-Doo and the Reluctant Werewolf
  • Yogi and the Invasion of the Space Bears

Coming along for the ride are voice actors Daws Butler, Don Messick, Mel Blanc, Arnold Stang, Marvin Kaplan, and Leo De Lyon, the original voice cast of The Jetsons and Scooby-Doo. Additionally, the collected set includes two bonus programs: Scooby Goes Hollywood (1979) and Yogi’s Ark Lark (1973). Every film has also been remastered in HD.

It’s been fun getting to watch the films on Blu-ray. Some for the first time and some that I’m sure I’ve seen before. Of course, it’s hard to know for sure. I’m almost certain that I’ve seen The Jetsons Meet the Flintstones before! Anyway, when all these stars come together, you can never go wrong with any of them. I mean, we’re also talking some of the greatest characters in animation of all time. Plus, it’s certainly a nice way to celebrate hand-drawn animation. Only the final two films in the series were made using the digital ink and paint process. This speaks to changes in animation during the late 1980s. Parents are sure to have a fun time introducing the classic movies to their children.

Hanna-Barbera Superstars 10 is currently available on Blu-ray.
