Storyline

"The Hanna-Barbera Happy Hour" was certainly a different kind of variety show. It was hosted by two life-size puppets, Honey and Sis (voiced by Udana Powers and Wendy McKenzie, respectively), who were "animated" from behind by a group of puppeteers (and "chroma-keyed" out of the picture), sang, and also participated in such comedy sketches as "The Disco of Life," "The Truth Tub," and "Name That Honey Hit." There were also parodies of currently popular TV shows (e.g. "Lavine and Shrilly," "The Ka-Bong Show"), and such costumed Hanna-Barbera characters as Yogi Bear, Huckleberry Hound, and Snagglepuss (voiced by Daws Butler) made cameo appearances. Tony Randall, Dan Haggerty, Melissa Gilbert, Twiggy, and Linda Lavin were among those who guest-starred on "The Hanna-Barbera Happy Hour" (and, for some strange reason, the stars introduced themselves, rather than by an announcer). Sadly, "The Hanna-Barbera Happy Hour" lasted only four weeks in the spring of 1978, but considering how awful the... Written by William Bennett Warfield

Well, I Remember This
12 June 2014 | by See all my reviews

1978, it was summer, I was a teen-ager, of course I watched it. I queried about it under Anson Williams, who guested and someone identified it years ago, but I forgot what it was. Knew it was a Hanna-Barbera show tho.

Don't recall the cartoon characters appearing. All I remember is they spoofed Three's Company with Anson Williams with lots of ridiculous innuendo.

Anson said he had to get dressed for some important event.

Honey and Sis as Janet and Chrissy: "but what do you have to do first?" Anson, as Jack Tripper: "first I have to get . . . UNDRESSED!" At the end of the skit, he came out wearing a ballerina costume.

I also recall the Laverne and Shirley skit, they just kept laughing real annoyingly. Don't recall who else appeared in the skit then.

I also remember they did sing Boogie Night - Got To Keep On Dancing. Truth be told, the musical bits like this were impressive to watch.

Shame the show, even if only four episodes, seems to be lost in obscurity.
