This is a special Beaux Arts reprint edition available at a discounted price in limited quantities only.

For nearly sixty years, William Hanna and Joseph Barbera have been creating characters that are cherished by loyal fans everywhere. In the process, they have won more citations and awards (including a record seven Oscars) than virtually any other filmmakers. For the first time, the story of this incredibly successful artistic partnership is told in the lavishly illustrated Hanna-Barbera Cartoons. The deluxe format captures the spirit of these cartoons--from the thirty-inch foldouts to the special acetate cel on the cover depicting some of the all-time favorite characters.

Hanna-Barbera Cartoons celebrates six decades of entertainment by telling the stories of Hanna-Barbera's best-loved cartoons, which are brought to life through full-color classic Hanna-Barbera art, much of it never before published, as well as fascinating sections on the studio and the animation artists, writers, directors, and voices that created them. In addition, special chapters that include summaries of every episode are devoted to six of the all-time classic shows--"The Flintstones," "The Jetsons," "Yogi Bear," "Top Cat," "Jonny Quest," and "Scooby Doo, Where Are You!" A catalogue raisonné of the Hanna-Barbera Animation Art collection and a complete chronology of the most important animation studio in the history of television makes this volume an indispensable reference for animation art collectors.
