Hanna-Barbera Productions, Inc. was an American animation studio, founded in 1957 by Tom and Jerry creators and former Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer animation directors William Hanna and Joseph Barbera, in partnership with film director George Sidney. The studio was a prominent force and a leader in American television animation for over three decades in the mid-20th century as it created a wide variety of popular animated characters and produced a succession of cartoon series, including The Flintstones, The Yogi Bear Show, The Jetsons, Wacky Races, Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! and Smurfs. Hanna and Barbera's cartoons won them seven Academy Awards, eight Emmy Awards, a Governors Award and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. With their studio now established as a successful company, the two men and original investor Sidney sold it to Taft Broadcasting on December 29, 1966. Taft would run it for the next quarter-century. By the mid-1980s, when the profitability of Saturday-morning cartoons was eclipsed by weekday afternoon syndication, Hanna-Barbera's fortunes had declined.
Turner Broadcasting System purchased the studio from Taft in late 1991 and used much of its back catalog as programming for its new channel, Cartoon Network. After Turner purchased the company and Barbera continued to serve as creative consultants and mentors; the studio became a subsidiary of Warner Bros. Animation in 1996 following Turner Broadcasting's merger with Time Warner, was absorbed into Warner Bros. Animation in 2001; as of 2019, Warner Bros. now distributes subsequent Hanna-Barbera cartoons, as well as now owning the rights to its back catalogue. William Hanna, a native of Melrose, New Mexico and Joseph Barbera, born of Italian heritage in New York City, first met at the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer studio in 1939, while working at its animation division and thus began a partnership that would last for six decades, their first cartoon together, the Oscar-nominated Puss Gets the Boot, featuring a cat named Jasper and an unnamed mouse, was released to theaters in 1940 and served as the pilot for the long-running short subject theatrical series Tom and Jerry.
Hanna and Barbera served as directors of the shorts for over 20 years, with Hanna supervising the animation and Barbera in charge of the stories and pre-production. Hanna did the screams, yelps and yells of Tom. In addition being nominated for twelve Oscars, seven of the cartoons won seven Academy Awards for Best Short Subject between 1943 and 1953, awarded to producer Fred Quimby, not involved in the creative development of the shorts; the pair served as animation directors for the hybrid animated/live-action musical sequences in MGM's feature films Anchors Aweigh, Dangerous When Wet and Invitation to the Dance and wrote and directed a handful of one-shot cartoons for MGM: Gallopin' Gals, Officer Pooch, War Dogs and Good Will to Men, a 1955 remake of the 1939 MGM cartoon Peace on Earth. With Quimby's retirement in 1955, Hanna and Barbera became the producers in charge of the MGM animation studio's output, supervising the last seven shorts of Tex Avery's Droopy series and directing and producing a short-lived Tom and Jerry spin-off series and Tyke, which ran for two entries.
In addition to their work on the cartoons, the two men moonlighted on outside projects, including the original title sequences and commercials for the CBS sitcom I Love Lucy. With the rise of television, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer decided in early 1957 to close its cartoon studio, as it felt it had acquired a reasonable backlog of shorts for re-release. While contemplating their future and Barbera began producing animated television commercials and during their last year at Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, they had developed a concept for a new animated TV program about a dog and cat duo in various misadventures. After they failed to convince the studio to back their venture, live-action director George Sidney, who had worked with Hanna and Barbera on several of his theatrical features for MGM, offered to serve as their business partner and convinced Screen Gems, a television production subsidiary of Columbia Pictures, to make a deal with the producers. A coin toss would determine. Harry Cohn and head of Columbia Pictures, took an 18% ownership in Hanna and Barbera's new company, H-B Enterprises, provided working capital.
Screen Gems became the new studio's distributor and its licensing agent, handling merchandizing of the characters from the animated programs. The duo's cartoon firm opened for business in rented offices on the lot of Kling Studios on July 7, 1957, two months after the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer animation studio closed down. Sidney and several Screen Gems alumni became members of the studio's board of directors and much of the former MGM animation staff — including animators Carlo Vinci, Kenneth Muse, Lewis Marshall, Michael Lah and Ed Barge and layout artists Ed Benedict and Richard Bickenbach — became the new production staff for the H-B studio. Conductor and composer Hoyt Curtin was in charge of providing the music while many voice actors came on board, such as Daws Butler, Don Messick, Julie Bennett, Mel Blanc, Howard Morris, John Stephenson, Hal Smith and Doug Young. H-B Enterprises was the first major animation studio to produce cartoons for television. Animated programming was rebroadcasts of theatrical cartoons.
Its first animated TV original The Ruff and Reddy Show, premiered on NBC in December 1957. The
Charles Dawson Butler was an American voice actor. He worked for the Hanna-Barbera animation production company where he originated the voices of many familiar characters, including Loopy De Loop, Wally Gator, Yogi Bear, Hokey Wolf, Elroy Jetson, Quick Draw McGraw, Spike the Bulldog, Huckleberry Hound. Butler was born on November 16, 1916 in Toledo, the only child of Charles Allen Butler and Ruth Butler; the family moved from Ohio to Oak Park, where Butler got interested in impersonating people. In 1935, the future voice master started as an impressionist, entering multiple amateur contests and winning most of them, he had entered them, not with the intention of showing his talent, but as a personal challenge to overcome his shyness, with success. Nonetheless, Butler won professional engagements at vaudeville theaters, he teamed up with fellow performers Jack Lavin and Willard Ovitz to form the comedy trio The Three Short Waves. The team played in theaters, on radio, in nightclubs, generating positive reviews from regional critics and audiences.
They dissolved their act in 1941, when Daws Butler joined the U. S. Navy as America entered World War II; some time after, he met his wife Myrtis during a wartime function near Washington, D. C, his first voice work for an animated character came in 1948 in the animated short Short Snorts on Sports, produced by Screen Gems. That same year at MGM, Tex Avery hired Butler to provide the voice of a British wolf on Little Rural Riding Hood and to narrate several of his cartoons. Throughout the late 1940s and mid-1950s, he had roles in many Avery-directed cartoons. Starting with The Three Little Pups, Butler provided the voice for a nameless wolf that spoke in a Southern accent and whistled all the time; this character appeared in Sheep Wrecked, Billy Boy and many more cartoons. While at MGM, Avery wanted Butler to try to do the voice of Droopy, at a time when Bill Thompson had been unavailable due to radio engagements. Instead, Butler recommended Don Messick, another actor and Butler's lifelong friend, who could imitate Thompson.
Thus, Messick voiced Droopy in several shorts. In 1949, Butler landed a role in a televised puppet show created by former Warner Bros. cartoon director Bob Clampett called Time for Beany. Butler was teamed with Stan Freberg, together they did all the voices of the puppets. Butler voiced Captain Huffenpuff. Freberg voiced Dishonest John. An entire stable of recurring characters were seen; the show's writers were Charles Shows and Lloyd Turner, whose dependably funny dialog was still always at the mercy of Butler's and Freberg's ad libs. Time for Beany ran from 1949–54, won several Emmy Awards. Butler turned his attention to writing and voicing several TV commercials. In the 1950s, Stan Freberg asked him to help him write comedy skits for his Capitol Records albums, their first collaboration, "St. George and the Dragonet", was the first comedy record to sell over one million copies. Freberg was more of a satirist who did song parodies, but the bulk of his dialogue routines were co-written by and co-starred Butler.
Butler teamed again with Freberg and actress June Foray in a CBS radio series, The Stan Freberg Show, which ran from July to October 1957 as a summer replacement for Jack Benny's program. Freberg's box-set, Tip of the Freberg chronicles every aspect of Freberg's career except the cartoon voice-over work, it showcases his career with Daws Butler. In Mr. Magoo, the UPA theatrical animated short series for Columbia Pictures, Butler played Magoo's nephew Waldo. Butler provided the voices of many nameless Walter Lantz characters for theatrical shorts seen on the Woody Woodpecker program, his characters included his rival Smedley, a southern-speaking dog. In 1957, after MGM had closed their animation unit, producers William Hanna and Joseph Barbera formed their own company, Daws Butler and Don Messick were on hand to provide voices; the first, The Ruff and Reddy Show, with Butler voicing Reddy, set the formula for the rest of the series of cartoons that the two helmed until the mid-1960s. He played the title roles in The Huckleberry Hound Show, The Quick Draw McGraw Show, The Yogi Bear Show, as well as a variety of other characters.
The characters with voices by Butler from 1957 to 1978 included: Butler would voice most of these characters for decades, in both TV shows and in some commercials. The breakfast cereal mascot Cap'n Crunch became an icon of sorts on Saturday morning TV through many commercials produced by Jay Ward. Butler played Cap'n from the 1960s to the 1980s, he based the voice on that of character actor Charles Butterworth. In 1961, while Mel Blanc was recovering from a road accident, Daws Butler substituted for him to voice Barney Rubble in five episodes of The Flintstones. In 1964, Butler was featured as Huckleberry Hound on a 45rpm record, "Bingo, Ringo," a comedic story combining the Beatles' drummer Ringo Starr and Lorne Greene's hit record "Ringo." In Wacky Races, Butler provided the voices for a number of the racers, Rock Slag, Big Gruesome, the Red Max, Sgt. B
A dog biscuit is a hard biscuit-based dietary supplement for dogs or other canines, similar to human snack food. Dog biscuits tend to be dry. Dog biscuits may be sold in a flat bone-shape; the dry and hard biscuit texture helps clean the dog's teeth. "Dog's bread", made from bran, has been mentioned since at least Roman times. It was criticized as bad bread. In Spain, "pan de perro" is mentioned as early as 1623 in a play by Lope de Vega, it is used here in the sense of giving someone blows. The latter meaning refers to a special bread made with ground glass and needles and intended to kill dogs; the bread meant as food for dogs was called parruna and was made from bran. This was likely what was referred to in associating the bread with mistreatment. In France, Charles Estienne wrote in 1598: "Take no notice of bran bread... it is better to leave it for the hunting, or shepherd, or watch dogs." By the nineteenth century, "pain de chien" had become a way of referring to bad bread: "It is awful, they give us dog's bread!"The English dog biscuit appears to be a nineteenth-century innovation: "With this may be joined farinaceous and vegetable articles — oat-meal, fine-pollard, dog-biscuit, carrots, parsnips".
In the south of England it is much the fashion to give sporting-dogs a food called dog-biscuit instead of barley-meal, the consequences resulting from this simple aliment are most gratifying. Barley-meal, indeed, is an unnatural food, unless it be varied with bones, for a dog delights to gnaw, thus to exercise those potent teeth with which nature has furnished him. Designed to digest the hard and tough integument of animal substance. In small private families it is not always possible to ohtain a sufficiency of meat and bones for the sustenance of a dog, recourse is too had to a coarse and filthy aliment, objectionable if the creature be debarred from taking daily exercise, fettered by a chain, restricted, by situation, from obtaining access to grass. If no other good effect resulted from it than the sleekness of his coat and clearness of his skin, these benefits ought to he procured for him. Dog-biscuit is a hard and well-baked mass of coarse, yet clean and wholesome flour, of an inferior kind to that known as sailors' biscuit.
A bag of dog-biscuit of five shillings' value, will be an ample supply for a yard-dog during the year: it should be soaked in water, or " pot liquor," for an hour or two. We have for many years known the utility of the plan thus advocated, we earnestly recommend all who value the safety of the community and their own, to make trial of the rational and feasible plan which we have detailed." In years, dog biscuits began to be made of meat products and were sometimes treated as synonymous with dog food. In 1871, an ad appeared in Cassell's Illustrated Almanac for "SLATER'S MEAT BISCUIT FOR DOGS - Contains vegetable substances and about 25 per cent of Prepared Meat, it gives Dogs endurance, without any other food will keep them in fine working condition."In England, Spratt's Dog Biscuits not only obtained a patent but seems to have claimed to have invented the food: By most accounts, the history of the industry begins with a man named James Spratt. An electrician from Cincinnati, Spratt had patented a new type of lightning conductor in 1850.
In the decade, he traveled to England to sell it. According to industry lore, he had a quayside epiphany in London when he saw a group of dogs eating discarded hardtack, the cheap, tough biscuits carried on ships and known to sailors as "molar breakers." The first major chunk of today's pet industry was born. In 1860, still in England, Spratt unveiled Spratt's Patent Meat Fibrine Dog Cakes, a combination of wheat, beetroot and beef blood. Before long, he had competitors with names like Dr. A. C. Daniels' Medicated Dog Bread and F. H. Bennett's Malatoid Dog Biscuits; the products embraced the dubious science and the regulated hucksterism of their era. More than 70 years ago, in a little shop in London an electrician named James Spratt conducted experiments which led to the production of Spratt's Patent—a scientifically blended dog food, it was the first attempt to lift the dog out of the class of scavenger which he had occupied from caveman times. The market was untouched, in those early days, Spratt's Patent secured a bull-dog grip on it that it has never relinquished, despite the fact that in the past seventy years many competitors have tried to wrest the leadership from them.
The Kellogg Company, doing business as Kellogg's, is an American multinational food-manufacturing company headquartered in Battle Creek, United States. Kellogg's produces cereal and convenience foods, including cookies and toaster pastries and markets their products by several well known brands including Corn Flakes, Pringles and Cheez-It. Kellogg's mission statement is "Nourishing families so they can flourish and thrive."Kellogg's products are manufactured and marketed in over 180 countries. Kellogg's largest factory is at Trafford Park in Trafford, Greater Manchester, United Kingdom, the location of its European headquarters. Other corporate office locations outside of Battle Creek include Chicago, Dublin and Querétaro City. Kellogg's holds a Royal Warrant from the Prince of Wales. Brothers Dr. John Harvey and Will Keith Kellogg founded a health food company, the Battle Creek Sanitarium Health Food Company in 1898; this company produced foodstuffs for current and former patients at Dr. J. H.
Kellogg's Battle Creek Sanitarium. The company became known as the Battle Creek Sanitarium Food Company in 1901. During this time, the company produced and marketed health foods such as corn flakes and Caramel Cereal Coffee; the company merged with the Sanitas Nut Food Company to become the Kellogg Food Company in July 1908, sold nut butters and meat substitutes, it was that the company's products all began to be sold under the trade name, "Kellogg's". At this time, Dr. J. H. Kellogg owned all but 2 of its 15,000 shares of stock. In 1921, it changed its name back to Battle Creek Food Company. However, Dr. John Harvey forbade his brother Will from distributing cereal beyond his patients; as a result, the brothers fell out, W. K. launched the Battle Creek Toasted Corn Flake Company on February 19, 1906. Convincing his brother to relinquish Sanitas's rights to the product, Will's company produced and marketed the hugely successful Kellogg's Toasted Corn Flakes and was renamed the Kellogg Toasted Corn Flake Company in 1909, taking on the current name of the Kellogg Company in 1922.
In 1930, the Kellogg Company announced that most of its factories would shift towards 30-hour work weeks, from the usual 40. W. K. Kellogg stated that he did this so that an additional shift of workers would be employed in an effort to support people through the depression era; this practice remained until World War II, continued after the war, although some departments and factories remained locked into 30-hour work weeks until 1980. From 1968 to 1970, the slogan “Kellogg’s puts more into your morning” was used on Saturday morning tv shows. From 1969 to 1977, Kellogg's acquired various small businesses including Salada Foods, Fearn International, Mrs. Smith's Pies and Pure Packed Foods. After underspending its competition in marketing and product development, Kellogg's U. S. market share hit a low 36.7% in 1983. A prominent Wall Street analyst called it "a fine company that's past its prime" and the cereal market was being regarded as "mature"; such comments stimulated Kellogg chairman William E. LaMothe to improve, which involved approaching the demographic of 80 million baby boomers rather than marketing children-oriented cereals.
In emphasizing cereal's convenience and nutritional value, Kellogg's helped persuade U. S. consumers age 25 to 49 to eat 26 %. The U. S. ready-to-eat cereal market, worth $3.7 billion at retail in 1983, totaled $5.4 billion by 1988 and had expanded three times as fast as the average grocery category. Kellogg's introduced new products including Crispix, Raisin Squares, Nutri-Grain Biscuits and reached out internationally with Just Right aimed at Australians and Genmai Flakes for Japan. During this time, the company maintained success over its top competitors: General Mills, which marketed children's cereals, Post, which had difficulty in the adult cereal market. In March 2001, Kellogg's made the Keebler Company. Over the years, it has gone on to acquire Morningstar Farms and Kashi divisions or subsidiaries. Kellogg's owns the Bear Naked, Natural Touch, Cheez-It, Austin cookies and crackers, Famous Amos and Plantation brands. Presently, Kellogg's is a member of the World Cocoa Foundation. In 2012, Kellogg's became the world's second-largest snack food company by acquiring the potato crisps brand Pringles from Procter & Gamble for $2.7 billion in a cash deal.
In 2017, Kellogg's acquired Chicago-based food company Rxbar for $600 million. Earlier that year, Kellogg's opened new corporate office space in Chicago's Merchandise Mart for its global growth and IT departments. In the UK, Kellogg's released the W. K. Kellogg brand of organic and plant-based cereals with no added sugars. In 2018, Kellogg decided to cease their operations in Venezuela due to the economic crisis the country is facing. On April 1, 2019, Kellogg announced that it was selling the Keebler and Famous Amos brands to Ferrero SpA for $1.3 billion. The acquisition is expected to close in July of that year. For the fiscal year 2017, Kellogg's reported earnings of US$1.269 billion, with an annual revenue of US$12.932 billion, a decline of 0.7% over the previous fiscal cycle. Kellogg's market capitalization was valued at over US$22.1 billion in November 2018. A list of cereal products produced by Kellogg's, with available varieties: Various methods have been used in the company's history to promote the company and its br
Animation is a method in which pictures are manipulated to appear as moving images. In traditional animation, images are drawn or painted by hand on transparent celluloid sheets to be photographed and exhibited on film. Today, most animations are made with computer-generated imagery. Computer animation can be detailed 3D animation, while 2D computer animation can be used for stylistic reasons, low bandwidth or faster real-time renderings. Other common animation methods apply a stop motion technique to two and three-dimensional objects like paper cutouts, puppets or clay figures; the effect of animation is achieved by a rapid succession of sequential images that minimally differ from each other. The illusion—as in motion pictures in general—is thought to rely on the phi phenomenon and beta movement, but the exact causes are still uncertain. Analog mechanical animation media that rely on the rapid display of sequential images include the phénakisticope, flip book and film. Television and video are popular electronic animation media that were analog and now operate digitally.
For display on the computer, techniques like animated GIF and Flash animation were developed. Animation is more pervasive. Apart from short films, feature films, animated gifs and other media dedicated to the display of moving images, animation is heavily used for video games, motion graphics and special effects. Animation is prevalent in information technology interfaces; the physical movement of image parts through simple mechanics – in for instance the moving images in magic lantern shows – can be considered animation. The mechanical manipulation of puppets and objects to emulate living beings has a long history in automata. Automata were popularised by Disney as animatronics. Animators are artists; the word "animation" stems from the Latin "animationem", noun of action from past participle stem of "animare", meaning "the action of imparting life". The primary meaning of the English word is "liveliness" and has been in use much longer than the meaning of "moving image medium"; the history of animation started long before the development of cinematography.
Humans have attempted to depict motion as far back as the paleolithic period. Shadow play and the magic lantern offered popular shows with moving images as the result of manipulation by hand and/or some minor mechanics. A 5,200-year old pottery bowl discovered in Shahr-e Sukhteh, has five sequential images painted around it that seem to show phases of a goat leaping up to nip at a tree. In 1833, the phenakistiscope introduced the stroboscopic principle of modern animation, which would provide the basis for the zoetrope, the flip book, the praxinoscope and cinematography. Charles-Émile Reynaud further developed his projection praxinoscope into the Théâtre Optique with transparent hand-painted colorful pictures in a long perforated strip wound between two spools, patented in December 1888. From 28 October 1892 to March 1900 Reynaud gave over 12,800 shows to a total of over 500.000 visitors at the Musée Grévin in Paris. His Pantomimes Lumineuses series of animated films each contained 300 to 700 frames that were manipulated back and forth to last 10 to 15 minutes per film.
Piano music and some dialogue were performed live, while some sound effects were synchronized with an electromagnet. When film became a common medium some manufacturers of optical toys adapted small magic lanterns into toy film projectors for short loops of film. By 1902, they were producing many chromolithography film loops by tracing live-action film footage; some early filmmakers, including J. Stuart Blackton, Arthur Melbourne-Cooper, Segundo de Chomón and Edwin S. Porter experimented with stop-motion animation since around 1899. Blackton's The Haunted Hotel was the first huge success that baffled audiences with objects moving by themselves and inspired other filmmakers to try the technique for themselves. J. Stuart Blackton experimented with animation drawn on blackboards and some cutout animation in Humorous Phases of Funny Faces. In 1908, Émile Cohl's Fantasmagorie was released with a white-on-black chalkline look created with negative prints from black ink drawings on white paper; the film consists of a stick figure moving about and encountering all kinds of morphing objects, including a wine bottle that transforms into a flower.
Inspired by Émile Cohl's stop-motion film Les allumettes animées, Ladislas Starevich started making his influential puppet animations in 1910. Winsor McCay's Little Nemo showcased detailed drawings, his Gertie the Dinosaur was an early example of character development in drawn animation. During the 1910s, the production of animated short films referred to as "cartoons", became an industry of its own and cartoon shorts were produced for showing in movie theaters; the most successful producer at the time was John Randolph Bray, along with animator Earl Hurd, patented the cel animation process that dominated the animation industry for the rest of the decade. El Apóstol was a 1917 Argentine animated film utilizing cutout animation, the world's first animated feature film. A fire that destroyed producer Federico Valle's film studio incinerated the only known copy of El Apóstol, it is now considered a lost film. In 1919, the silent animated short Feline Follies was released, marking the debut of Felix the Cat, being the first animated character in the silent film era to win a high level of popularity.
The earliest extant feature-length animated film is The Adve
Quick Draw McGraw
Quick Draw McGraw is a fictional anthropomorphic horse and the protagonist and title character of The Quick Draw McGraw Show. He is depicted as wearing a red cowboy light blue bandana, he was voiced by Daws Butler. All 45 of his cartoons that aired between 1959 and 1961 were written by Michael Maltese, known best for his work at the Warner Bros. cartoon studio. The cartoon was one of six TV shows to win an Emmy Award in 1960. Quick Draw was depicted as a sheriff in a series of short films set in the Old West. Quick Draw was accompanied by his deputy, a Mexican burro called Baba Looey, who spoke English with a Mexican accent and called his partner "Queeks Draw". In the Spanish American version, Quick Draw speaks in a English-influenced accent, Baba Looey speaks in a Mexican accent, so it was clear that Quick Draw was the alien, there was no need to adapt any feature of the story. In the Brazilian version, Quick Draw speaks in a drawling Portuguese which along with his hispanized name would suggest he was either a Texan-American or Mexican cowboy.
Quick Draw satirized the westerns. His character was somewhat dim, his main catchphrases were "Now hold on there!" and "I'll do the'thin'in' around here and don't you forget it!" If he got hurt he would say "Ooooh that smarts!" Another featured character was Snuffles, the bloodhound dog that would point to his mouth and "ah-ah-ah-" when he wanted a biscuit hug himself, leap up in the air, float back down after having eaten one. In several cases when Quick Draw did not have a dog biscuit to offer, or if he tried to give Snuffles the reward cash for capturing an outlaw, Snuffles would either shake his head and say "Uh-uh" or grunt to himself and mumble "Darn cheapskate!" as well as sometimes throwing the reward money back in Quick Draw's face. Quick Draw was himself a horse caricature that walked on two legs like a human, had "hands" that were hooves with thumbs and could hold objects such as guns; this did not stop the show's producers from depicting him riding into town on a realistic horse, or as seen in the show's opening credits, driving a stagecoach pulled by a whole team of realistic horses.
This aspect was made light of in the 1980s made-for-television film The Good, the Bad, Huckleberry Hound, which featured Quick Draw. In certain cases, Quick Draw would assume the identity of the masked vigilante El Kabong, his introduction went as follows – "Of all the heroes in legend and song, there's none as brave as El Kabong". As El Kabong, Quick Draw would attack his foes by swooping down on a rope with the war cry "OLÉ!" and hitting them on the head with an acoustic guitar, always referred to as a "kabonger", producing a distinctive kabong sound and destroying the guitar in the process. The "guitar" was drawn as a four stringed quatro. On the cartoon's soundtrack, the "kabong" sound effect was produced by a foley artist striking the detuned open strings of a cheap acoustic guitar. Comedian Kenny Moore received the nickname of El Kabong on some web sites due to his infamous assault of a heckler with the guitar he played as part of his act. Quick Draw McGraw appeared in other Hanna-Barbera productions, including 1973's Yogi's Gang, 1977–1978's Laff-a-Lympics, a celebrity roast honoring Fred Flintstone on the TV special Hanna-Barbera's All-Star Comedy Ice Revue and the 1979 TV special Casper's First Christmas, in an episode from the short-lived 1978 series Yogi's Space Race.
Quick Draw McGraw and Baba Looey appeared in The Yogi Bear Show episode "Yogi's Birthday Party". In the "Fender Bender 500" segment of 1990's Wake and Roll, Quick Draw McGraw and Baba Looey are the featured racers where they drive a padded wagon-modeled monster truck called the Texas Twister. Quick Draw McGraw was voiced by Greg Burson. In Yo Yogi!, Quick Draw McGraw and Baba Looey are seen as Wild West entertainers. Greg Burson reprises his role of Quick Draw McGraw when he and Baba Looey appeared in the Samurai Jack episode titled "The Good, The Bad, the Beautiful", they were seen on the train. Quick Draw appeared in Class of 3000 episode "Home". Quick Draw McGraw and Baba Looey appeared in the South Park episode "Imaginationland Episode III", they join the good imaginary characters fighting the evil characters in the final battle. Quick Draw appeared as a minor antagonist in Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law and the main antagonist of his only appearance "Guitar Control" voiced by Maurice LaMarche impersonating Charlton Heston.
He appears as a defendant for being charged with carrying a concealed weapon when he was about to use it on some criminals as El Kabong. Quick Draw's dog Snuffles made a special guest appearance on an episode of Johnny Bravo in which Johnny follows a woman whom he mistakes for his mother. In the episode, Snuffles is assigned by the police to help find Johnny – provided, of course, he is given doggy snacks along the way. Quick Draw appeared in the final issue of Exit Stage Left: The Snagglepuss Chronicles. In the same issue, he was portrayed as Huckleberry Hound's lover. Quick Draw was the mascot for Sugar Smacks in the early 1960s. Quick Draw made a cameo in a MetLife commercial in 2012. There are references to "El Kabong" in the TV series The Critic – Jay Sherman's father, Franklin Sherman, imitates El Kabong, swooping from chandeliers dressed similar to Zorro and hi
