Which was ironic, as several Ruby-Spears [=DVDs=] do in fact do that. But while this is frustrating from a historical perspective, a lot of Hanna-Barbera fans are also Ruby-Spears fans. So while there is some irritation, there's not as much animosity on the characters of both companies being like step-brothers.
