If there was any reason at all as to why I would find the pair annoying, it would be this one. Perhaps the worst thing that their studio ever produced, and something that simply won't die off.

I was reffering to that Filmation special. I actually think Rugger's idea would work or at least better than the show Warner picked up. I mean it's not like the parent code is still active.

The only reason they might annoy me is the fact that in the 70's, a lot of their cartoons were basically cash ins for Scooby Doo's success as well as spin-offs of Yogi and The Flintstones.

Their work with MGM as well as their first forays into TV animation, however, save them from an annoying vote (I personally love their late 50's-late 60's stuff, all things considered.) They at least have some merit to their name.
Watching classic animation since 1992.

I blame mostly that lousy parent code. Most animation was balled and chained to that mess.

Hey, 2 Stupid Dogs and SWAT Kats wasn't annoying. In fact, it was part of the final period when Hanna-Barbera made great content again in 1993.

MGM Period: Not Annoying
H-B Period (1957-1969): Not Annoying
H-B Period (1970-1991): VERY Annoying
H-B Period (1991-2002 (Turner/Time Warner Period)): Not Annoying

I would say 1993-2002. I hate those "classic characters become kids" series like T&J kids.

I pretty much agree with the rest.
