Dexter and Waldo must have enjoyed working together, 12 June 2005
Author: btdroflet38 from Australia

I am (still) a big fan of the sixties Hanna-Barbera super-hero cycle which started in 1966 and ended ignominiously with the "Super Friends" around 1973. However, Shazzan was among the best of them. It had action, excitement, imaginative music scoring (also incorporated into 1968's "Arabian Knights" cartoon and i imagine the music originator must have been in overdrive by the sheer dramatics he was able to instill within the action sequences and final showdown between the jolly brown giant and his motley crew of adversaries.

But i seems that Jerry Dexter and Janet Waldo had worked together on other cartoon shows for H-B and for Filmation (notably "Josie and the Pussycats")so their chemistry must have worked in well.

Alas, there will never be anything to top the nostalgic 60's. Today's generation of kids are being swamped with rock-band screeching and that, is not what i would like to remember from the team of Hanna-Barbera.

- Brian T.
