Hanna-Barbera productions were a staple of television animation from the 1960s. It was acquired by Turner Broadcasting in 1990, and by Time Warner in 1996 (the same year the Original Book was made) and continued to make animation on the Turner-run channel Cartoon Network until William Hanna's death in 2001, causing Hanna-Barbera to be folded into Warner Bros.
