I meant to grab the first issue of that at a certain local comic book store that was offering half off on all DC titles for the next couple months (no doubt because of the DC Rebirth gimmick), and never got around to it. Out of all the other comics, it does sound like the best of the bunch. I was looking forward to Wacky Raceland...until I saw how Dick Dastardly looks like something Johnny Depp should have played. Plus..I dunno...Five bucks an issue? Maybe I'll pick up the first one if it's part of the half off dealie.Then of course there's this. Not exactly in love with giving everyone super DC designs, but I get what they're going for. And even though I never really got into HB's action-adventure shows, that crossover series with Jonny Quest, Space Ghost, Birdman, et al looks pretty kick butt!
I think I saw this a couple of months ago but must've forgotten this thread existed. But that's really cool, I can't wait to see them finally revive some of their properties that aren't Scooby Doo or Tom and Jerry or some terrible live action reboot with CGI animals like that 'Yogi Bear' movie.
While I don't know if this strongly hints at anything, the Funtastic World of Hanna Barbera ride had this interesting pre-show. Skip to about 2 minutes in when Dastardly appears...
Now, I am only making a guess here, but that line seems to suggest that if The Jetsons:The Movie didn't fail at the box office, it would have been the start of an HB animated movie series. There's probably a nugget of truth to that, or it may just be a wild coincidence.
I don't mind an HB movie series, but I really don't think everything needs to be a cinematic universe. They've been trying for a live action Jetsons movie since 1996 at least. The Johnny Quest project sounds like its happening (GOOD! WB's heads shouldn't have forcced the Venture Bros writers to start calling him "Action Johnny" for nothing). But there's surprisingly little in HB that actually shares anything. Yogi Bear and those 60's cartoons share a universe as far as Yogi's Gang and Treasure Hunt is concerned, and that may share a universe with Wacky Races since Dastardly and Muttley are in there. The Flintstones and Jetsons...well... yeah, that telefilm and it's mentioned in the first Flintstones NES game. Yogi does appear in a Flintstones, but I'm calling that a throwaway gag. And I'm guessing the action series share a universe (minus Fantastic Four for the most obvious of reasons).
Oh... and yeah...there's Laff-a-lympics, but that's something I don't want to wrap my head around. Unless you play the "troupe of actors" route.
