Hanna Barbera Title Cards

So I’ve decided to start posting on this blog again, at least semi-regularly for now. I’m going to start up again by sharing screenshots of some great title cards from the first season of the Huckleberry Hound show. I love these cards with just silhouettes of the characters. The poses have more energy than probably anything you find in the actual cartoons. “Scooter Looter” and “Pie Pirates” are my personal favorites. I’m not sure who was responsible for these. I’m assuming the layout artist of each short drew them. If someone knows please feel free to comment.

Love them all, but the 'Scooter Looter' one in particular, as I have a Marx toys figure of Yogi on a friction-drive scooter. I wonder if it was inspired by the cartoon? (Obviously Yogi was, but I mean him on a scooter.)

All these title cards are from the 1st season (1958-59) of The Huckleberry Hound Show (Hanna-Barbera/Columbia Pictures, 1958-62).

The character shapes are so engaging - even from just a silhouette. Very cool
