* Depending on whom you ask, The Dread Baron and Mumbly are either these, or Expys. According to some accounts, Hanna-Barbera was in a legal conflict with Heatter-Quigley (who was to have created a live game show segment for ''WesternAnimation/WackyRaces'') over who owned the rights to the Dick Dastardly and Muttley characters, which led to the creation of the new characters for the show ''WesternAnimation/LaffALympics''. Others point out that Mumbly actually pre-dated Muttley (though he originally was a ''good guy''.)
** Muttley, created in 1968, predates Mumbly, created in 1976.
