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 until William Hanna's death in 2001. 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.



Scooby Doo

  • The Homestar Runner Mysfit-Steries portray Homestar, Strong Mad, Marzipan, and Strong Bad as Scooby Doo characters
    • Homestar is dressed as Fred Jones
    • Strong Bad is dressed as Shaggy Robinson. He says "There's no such thing as mysterious", but in Scooby Doo it is Shaggy who is the coward
    • Marzipan is dressed as Daphne Blake. She uses the word "scampers", a play on the catchphrase "Jinkies!"
    • Strong Mad is dressed as Velma Dinkley
  • A rejected costume for Marzipan shows her dressed up as Velma.


The Flintstones

  • Rumble Red is a spoof on The Great Gazoo, a character from The Flintstones.
  • Strong Badia the Free — In Cave Girl Squad, Ogg drives a car similar to the one from The Flintstones.
  • Email unnatural (DVD commentary) — Strong Bad and Mike talk about clickers, both a mouse and a remote control, and Strong Bad mentions that his great-grandma would call the remote control clicker "the pterodactyl that flies out of a stone box that turns the TV on for you". This refers to how one of the gadgets on The Flintstones might be used.
