Don't forget the Gene Deitch era where MGM let a Europe film studio called Rembrandt Films use the characters and make their own versions of Tom and Jerry shorts. Those weren't Hanna Barbera or MGM made. That was in the 60's.

I'm aware of those Deitch & Snyder cartoons, which weren't produced or directed by Hanna and Barbera, nor were the ones from the Chuck Jones era (except for Shutter-Bugged Cat and Matinee Mouse which featured footage from older cartoons, with credit given to H-B), nor the 1980 Filmation Tom and Jerry Saturday morning series; H-B's direct involvement was from 1940 to 1958 and in the 1975 Saturday morning series, with subsequent studios giving credit to the creators.

I really enjoyed "The Gary Coleman Show" during its short life on NBC, and I would still watch the series in reruns.

I also enjoyed "Smurfs", up to and including Season 5. From Season 6 onward, I never cared for the newer segments, though I did appreciate the "Smurfquest" episode, and I especially liked it when Papa Smurf mentioned "Earth, Wind and Fire" in that order in his dialogue.

I have to admit, whenever I hear certain sound effects, I am reminded of "Sesame Street" since that is where I first recognized certain sound effects. A scene in a Richie Rich Riches segment ("Boy of the Year", to be exact) has Richie quickly inflate a raft as he and Reggie Van Dough were falling off a cliff into a river - the first thing that came to my mind was the "E for Elephant and Elk" skit on "Sesame Street" (I heard this same sound effect on an episode of "The All-New Superfriends Hour", and also "Captain Caveman and the Teen Angels", and even on a recent episode of the new series "Scooby-Doo and Guess Who?", which launched on Boomerang's app on June 27, and launches on Cartoon Network today). I also noticed H-B cartoon episodes which involved a wheeling-in sound effect, which reminds me of the "Sesame Street" skits featuring "The Typewriter Guy".

WHOA! I can't wait for this. I've already missed the first show but saw where it's re-airing this coming Friday. This will be another great series. I hope it does well for it to have at least 5 or 4 seasons but just hope that Cartoon Network doesn't change it over to Boomerang channel cause I don't have it.

Me too, because this looks really good.
