HANNA-BARBERA STUDIO NEWSLETTER - OCTOBER 1967




Here's the October 1967 edition of THE HANNA-BARBERA EXPOSURE SHEET, the studio's newsletter. I've got a few more of these to post, so keep checking back. It's neat to see photos of TED CASSIDY and the HUCK FINN cast reading the very first edition of THE EXPOSURE SHEET on page one. I posted that edition back on June 13, 2008. It's interesting to see that HANNA-BARBERA background painter, ART LOZZI, designed interiors for three Hilton Hotels in Europe...and the animated feature, A MAN CALLED FLINTSTONE (the film was actually titled THE MAN CALLED FLINTSTONE), won two awards!

HAPPY 80th BIRTHDAY, ALEX TOTH!



Happy birthday to the late legendary comic artist and animation character designer ALEX TOTH! In honor of TOTH's 80th birthday, I'm posting two of his model sheets for the 1967 HANNA-BARBERA production, SHAZZAN. As you know, TOTH designed just about all of the HANNA-BARBERA super-hero shows during the 1960s and 1970s, including SPACE GHOST, MIGHTOR, YOUNG SAMSON, MOBY DICK, SUPERFRIENDS, BLUE FALCON and more. I'm also posting the original art to a 1967 SHAZZAN puzzle from Western Printing. TOTH didn't do the puzzle art, but it is based on his sensational character designs!

THE FUNNY COMPANY

Growing up in the Chicago area during the 1960s and 1970s, I used to watch THE FUNNY COMPANY on WGN-TV Channel 9's children's show, GARFIELD GOOSE AND FRIENDS. Hosted by FRAZIER THOMAS and featuring the puppets GARFIELD GOOSE, ROMBERG RABBIT, MACINTOSH MOUSE and BEAUREGARD BURNSIDE III, GARFIELD GOOSE AND FRIENDS also showed CLUTCH CARGO and JOURNEY TO THE BEGINNING OF TIME. Here's the original painted art for one of the 1960s FUNNY COMPANY puzzles produced by Western Printing. Below, I've re-posted a "portrait" of GARFIELD GOOSE that I did.
