**The WesternAnimation/TomAndJerry shorts, when compared to the output of H&Bís own studio. The former were lavishly animated and featured almost no dialogue, while the latter was the exact opposite. Itís sort of a shame to see what the duo was capable of when given the proper resources.

** Music/MichaelJackson was a big fan of the duo's work and even got to meet Joe Barbera during the production of the infamous ''WesternAnimation/TomAndJerryTheMovie''.
** Creator/LindaCardellini admitted in an interview that she watched ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDoo'' all the way into college and would later go on to star in the first two live action films as Velma.
** Ian Jones-Quartey has frequently made references and crossover episodes involving the studio's catalog in ''WesternAnimation/OKKOLetsBeHeroes''; and has been [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4gutUOXFTlQ on record]] saying that "K.O." has traces of Hanna Barbera in its DNA. (Even the CN Studios logo at the end is intentionally modeled after the 90s H-B "All-Stars" logo.)
** C. Martin Croker cited his reason for working on ''WesternAnimation/SpaceGhostCoastToCoast'' saying that he always wanted to work on a Hanna Barbera show since he was a kid.

On March 4, 2019, in a major shakeup of [=WarnerMedia=] by their new owners, AT&T, Warner Bros. took control of Cartoon Network and its production operations, ultimately bringing Hanna-Barbera and the Cartoon Network properties under one roof again for the first time in 18 years. No major alterations have been announced yet on this.[[note]]Obviously, as this page also noted, the last attempt to fix this lasted only six years. So this might take more time, especially in the current atmosphere.[[/note]]

* LimitedAnimation: Pioneered many of the techniques in creating animation on a television schedule and budget, at least with what the technology would allow at the time. Of course, as mentioned on AnimationBump, give Hanna-Barbera a budget and they would use it for all it was worth.

* MarathonRunning: During the Thanksgiving weekend of 2020, Boomerang aired marathons of their most popular shows, most notably Top Cat, Yogi Bear, Huckleberry Hound, The Jetsons, The Flintstones, Wacky Races, Jonny Quest, Josie and the Pussycats, and Magilla Gorilla.



* ThePowerOfFriendship: A near constant theme in their shows, regardless of formula. Most have characters that will be best of friends and sometimes whole episodes are devoted to showcasing how friendship overcomes hardship. For a 50th anniversary, Bill and Joe led several of their star characters in a song about teamwork. To take it up a notch when Warner Bros decided to give the HB characters a serious theatrical push in ''WesternAnimation/{{Scoob}}'' they grounded the plot in this trope especially among a pair of and the studio's most beloved heroes and two of the studio's most beloved villains.

In 1996, Time Warner merged with Turner Broadcasting, putting them under the same corporate roof as Creator/WarnerBros. This reunited a few H-B shows that had been in the hands of Warner Bros.[[note]]Namely the AnimatedAdaptation versions of ''Series/{{The Dukes of Hazzard}}'', ''[[Creator/AbbottAndCostello The Abbott and Costello Show]]'' and Ruby-Spears' WesternAnimation/PoliceAcademyTheAnimatedSeries[[/note]], and reunited the pre-1948 ''Looney Tunes'' with the rest of the library.[[note]]The Warner Bros. library (and the rest of Warner Bros. Television, for that matter) is still separate from the Turner and H-B libraries, but can be co-marketed when they wish.[[/note]] From this point Hanna-Barbera was slowly merged into Warner Bros. Animation with the intent that the new company didn't need more than one animation studio. This however didn't go entirely smoothly. [[note]]The short version is that basically there were way too many people with different goals trying to be shoved under one roof. You had very pro WB people who didn't want to be associated with HB in any way. You had HB people that felt the new generation disrespected the HB legacy. You had younger employees not wanting to be shackled to the WB or HB legacies. You had WB execs who had helped with Nickelodeon not wanting to work with CN. And you had a lot of people stuck in the middle wanting the whole thing to just end already.[[/note]] Just before the then-imminent death of Bill Hanna in 2001, Cartoon Network programming and the units producing them were spun out into their own entity (Cartoon Network Studios) under the Turner silo and Warner Bros. assumed the production of ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDoo'', the company's [[LongRunners longest-running franchise]] and picked up all their legacy properties with Hanna-Barbera credited as the copyright holder under the Warner Bros. silo. By thie point in time the Cartoon Cartoon brands had dominated the studios output in comparison to other general Hanna Barbera productions and from here on out the earliest Cartoon Cartoons (including ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'')[[note]]the final series to use the company's trademark "swirling star" logo (and even then, it was originally done as a throwback, as it was last used in 1992, outside an odd ''WesternAnimation/JohnnyBravo'' episode in 1997, apparently an editing error)[[/note]] stopped being associated with Hanna-Barbera as well.
