* RecycledInSpace: Definitely not the first to do this, but both the TropeNamer (with ''ComicBook/JosieAndThePussycats in Outer Space'') ''and'' TropeCodifier for how this trope is currently used. As stated above, they were known for shameless SelfPlagiarism -- if one show was successful, do another just like it. If one was not, do one like one of the more successful shows, rinse, repeat. If you're not too busy, check out [[RecycledInSpace/WesternAnimation this trope's page for western animation]]. About half of the above list is on there.
* ReusedCharacterDesign: Quite literally, actually. Several of the character designers for HB's later shows would literally trace over model sheets for older shows when designing new ones.

** So has Creator/DCComics. With an already ongoing ''Scooby Doo Team Up'' comic pairing Scooby with other HB cartoons and DC heroes, it has expanded with the recent announcement of ''Future Quest''- a series with Jonny Quest and Space Ghost teaming with many of the other 60s H-B heroes.

** More recently, DC Comics [[http://www.dccomics.com/blog/2016/01/28/hanna-barbera-beyond-flintstones-scooby-and-more-are-getting-comic-book-reimaginings announced a slate of comic reboots of H-B properties]]; while the above mentioned ''Future Quest'' aims at a retro aesthetic, the others provide these kind of what if takes. These include ''Scooby Apocalypse'' (which takes the Scooby Gang into a world infected by a nanite virus), ''Wacky Raceland'' (which transplants the Wacky Racers into a ''Film/MadMaxFuryRoad'' style environment), and a ''Flintstones'' comic that takes it back to its' roots about social issues in a prehistoric setting. This mirroring the multiple paths being taken in the modern animation projects.

** Their action cartoons during the 80s and 90s began to take this route as well- the last couple seasons of ''WesternAnimation/SuperFriends'' brought in Darkseid, for starters; the trend continued with ''WesternAnimation/GaltarAndTheGoldenLance'', ''WesternAnimation/ThePiratesOfDarkWater'', and especially ''SwatKats''.

** Can be argued for the studio itself, which survived decades thanks to its founders' teamwork, despite the two of them being polar opposites (Hanna was the quiet country type, Barbera was the fast-paced city type) and rarely fraternizing outside of work, where they bickered LikeAnOldMarriedCouple.

* AnimationBump: While known for their heavy dependance on LimitedAnimation for their TV shows, the studio would use a bigger budget for all it was worth whenever they could get one, often in their feature films. In fact, several of ''WesternAnimation/TomAndJerry'''s highly skilled animators migrated over to [=HB=], so the talent was there when they needed it. They moved away from the limited stuff entirely in the late 80s/early 90s, when they started streamlining their creative process by farming out their animation services and producing far fewer shows at a time.

* AnimatedAdaptation: Although better known for their original characters, they made cartoons out of ''everything'', from ''Franchise/{{Godzilla}}'' to ''Series/LaverneAndShirley''.
* AnimationBump: In the late 80s/early 90s, when they started streamlining their creative process by farming out their animation services and producing far fewer shows at a time.
** They also put noticeably more care into their movies, especially theatrical ones. ''Film/CharlottesWeb'' is still respected today. And, although the ''[[WesternAnimation/TheJetsons Jetsons]]'' movie has its share of problems, poor animation is not one of them.
** It was 1984-85 when their tv animation got to decent level, due to outsourcing. Try comparing in-house made "13 Ghosts of Scooby-Doo" from 1985 to outsourced "Snorks" and "Smurfs" from 1984. The most notable however is the earliest episodes of 1985 "Jetsons" to all the other ones.

* LimitedAnimation: One of the pioneers, admittedly out of necessity.[[note]] As proved with the Golden Age ''Tom & Jerry'' shorts, ''Hey There, It's Yogi Bear!'', ''TheManCalledFlintstone'' and some other later output, give Hanna-Barbera a budget and they were capable of producing excellent animation.[[/note]]
