'''[[Wikipedia:Hanna-Barbera|Hanna-Barbera]]''' was an animation studio founded by William Hanna and Joseph Barbera, who were originally known for the Tom & Jerry theatrical shorts produced for MGM. Hanna-Barbera productions were a staple of television animation from the 1960s. It was acquired by [[Wikipedia:Turner Broadcasting System|Turner Broadcasting]] in 1990, and by [[Wikipedia:Time Warner|Time Warner]] in 1996 (the same year the [[Original Book]] was made) and continued to make animation on the Turner-run channel [[Wikipedia:Cartoon Network|Cartoon Network]] until William Hanna's death in 2001, causing Hanna-Barbera to be folded into [[Wikipedia:Warner Bros. Animation|Warner Bros. Animation]]. In keeping with [[The Brothers Chaps]]' intention with creating Saturday morning cartoons, references to these shows occasionally appear in the toons, mostly to their sound effects.
