All I can say is....the bad ages for cartoons., 26 December 2011
Author: Steve Carras ( from United States

Arelen Golonka and Mel Blanc must have been struggling with, drugs, cards, hippies, oh my, as Judy Garland said forty years earlier.

I'm just surprised the kids didn't't sing any songs here. The other shows: Scooby/Josie/Pebbles and Bamm Bamm, then Funky Phantom, Butch Cassidy, Clue Club, and (bringing up Judy Garland's exclamation from Wizard again) Oh My, Goober.

Bad timing, bad design, no wonder it lasted for only 17 episodes one season, and characters using drug abuse (going back to the late 60s Banana Splits and Cattanooga Cats, though those early efforts were admittedly a bit better), caused HB, and later the Smurf like cartoons next decade, 1980s, to bring HB and Filmation down to the worst level anyone could. Thank god for Beavis and Butthead and the late 1920sa-early 1960s. Though I did like "Wait Till your Father Gets Home" & "Inch High Private High". :D
