São Paulo - SP, Brazil, June 18, 2009.

Hello, Howie Fein, Blue Hombre, Daws Butler Jr. and friends from GAC!

I've found on the John Kricfalusi's blog (http://johnkstuff.blogspot.com), an article which I hope that all of you see: the first Yogi Bear comic strip from the early 60s, which artwork look like the layouts that Tony Rivera made for most from the Yogi Bear TV cartoons from that period. There are comparsions among this artwork and the artworks done by Harvey Eisenberg at the following.
Enjoy to read this article clicking at the following link: http://johnkstuff.blogspot.com/2009/06/mystery-for-hardened-hanna-barbera.html.
There's another link where this first Yogi Bear comic strip is included. It's the following: http://johnkstuff.blogspot.com/2009/05/yogi-sundays.html.
I wish you a good luck on these visits!
Well, that's it!
Tchau!

Cheers from this faithful friend who always writes 4 U,

The Flintstones #17 (Gold Key, March 1964)

Postby rodinei1964 » Tue Feb 01, 2011 6:32 pm

São Paulo - SP, February 2, 2011 (It's Summer here in Brazil!)

Hello, Howie Fein, Blue Hombre, Daws Butler Jr. and friends from GAC!

There's a cool blog that focuses the comic books from several years, titled The Big Blog of Kids' Comics (http://www.bigblogcomics.com). And the Hanna-Barbera comic books also are included there.
There's a topic involving the comic book The Flintstones #17 (Gold Key, March 1964).
This issue brings the cover drawn by Harvey Eisenberg (the "Carl Barks from Hanna-Barbera") and the interior stories were drawn by Pete Alvarado.
The central story on this issue (drawn by Pete Alvarado) is mirrored on an episode from the 4th season (1963-64) of the Flintstones series (Hanna-Barbera/Columbia Pictures, 1960-66), Ann-Margrock Presents, which brings a special appearance of Ann-Margret (on the animated format).
Enjoy to see this topic, clikcing on the following link: http://www.bigblogcomics.com/2010/08/flintstones-no-17-march-1964.html.
And, as an appetizer, here's the cover from this issue:

Well, this was what I've had to report here.

Covers from the "Flintstones" Dutch edition (drawn by Gene Hazelton)

Postby rodinei1964 » Mon Jul 03, 2017 12:22 pm

1. Dell
2. Gold Key
3. Marvel
4. Archie
5. DC
6. Harvey
7. Charlton

A Special mention to Comico, whose Jonny Quest series (plus miniseries JQ Classics and Jade Inc.) and Space Ghost one-shot are simply outstanding.

The Mark Evanier-edited Marvel line of HB comics was really a labor of love. Evanier was able to blend together harmoniously young talent like Scott Shaw! and veterans such as Pete Alvarado, Dan Spiegle, etc., creating comics truly faithful to the original cartoons upon which were based. Too bad this line was so short-lived... and after that, Hanna-Barbera comics were absent from the market for nearly a decade (and when Marvel launched their Star Comics line in the mid-80´s, why didn´t they consider bringing back the HB characters, not just the Flintstone Kids?).

Although the Harvey books merely reprinted the Charlton material, I rank them above the latter since I agree they had nice covers and besides, their high quality paper resulted in brighter colors.

By the way, Daws Butler Jr., the comic book in which Loopy de Loop appeared was called Hanna-Barbera Bandwagon. This was not Loopy´s only appearances in comic books; he appeared for most of the 60´s in one-page strips in the British Comic "Huckleberry Hound Weekly"; some of these strips were reprinted in the U.S. in one of the digest-sized Whitman Comic Books circa 1962.

This might inspire another interesting thread: "International Hanna-Barbera Comics". Although not attending the quantity and consistency of the overseas-made Disney comics, countries like U.K., France, Italy, Spain, Germany, Holland and Brazil have produced at one time or another their own licensed Hanna-Barbera comics (since the U.S.-made material was often simply not enough). For example, I have a French comic with a Jabberjaw story (who never appeared in an American comic) drawn by a local artist, as well as a Brazilian one with a Posse Impossible story, again domestically produced.


Gene Hazelton (who produced, during many years, the Flintstones and Yogi Bear comic strips which were carried in the newspapers from the whole world, via McNaught Syndicate and Editors Press Services) drew some covers for the Dutch edition of the Flintstones comic book.
Here are the covers drawn by him (both edited in 1968):

The "Flintstones" comic strip (by Gene Hazelton)

Postby rodinei1964 » Mon Aug 21, 2017 8:15 pm

Hello, HB-fans from the whole world (Hanna-Barbera - 60 years)!

Do you remember of the Flintstones comic strip, drawn by the legendary Gene Hazelton and distributed in the newspapers from the whole world by the late McNaught Syndicate and Editors Press Services (which nowadays distributes the strip)?
I was reading the Flintstones Sunday page from August 1st, 1976 (drawn by Gene Hazelton), where Fred and Barney were going out to play bowling, and their friend Stoney (who was begining to work as a postman) was going to play bowling with them... in uniform!
Here's the Sunday page:

Image

Seeing Stoney wearing uniform to play bowling with Fred and Barney, makes me reminding of a character who frequently appeared in the Flintstones comic strip during the mid-60s (still drawn by Gene Hazelton): Emmet the postman (who was crazy for cookies), who always distributes the letters to the Flintstones' door for Pebbles, and the Fred's little daughter, as a retribuition, gave him a cookie.
And here's one of the situations involving the pretty baby Pebbles and Emmet the postman (this one is from January 1966):

Image

It looks like a coincidence, isn't it?
You can find several Flintstones daily strips and Sunday pages (drawn by Gene Hazelton) in the following blogs:

- The Yowp-Yowp's (who's from Vancouver, Canada) blog: http://yowpyowp.blogspot.com.
- The Ger Apeldoorn's (who makes scripts for the Dutch edition from the MAD magazine) blog: http://allthingsger.blogspot.com.
- The Comicrazys blog: http://comicrazys.wordpress.com.

In all these blogs, click on the Flintstones tag. Or else, digit Flintstones in the search engine.
I wish you good luck on these visits!

These Yogi Bear special editions from Dell Comics were drawn by the legendary Harvey Eisenberg (the "Carl Barks from Hanna-Barbera").

Frank Johnson and his work in "Huckleberry Hound"

I remember there being some truly bizarre artwork in certain stories, often in "Parade" which featured outrageous character poses and sideline gags. I wish I knew who the artist was and what he's done since then.

Believe it or not, that was the work of Phil Mendez who has a long resume of working for Disney, Hanna-Barbera and other animation studios. Here is a link to an article about Phil:

http://www.cinemawithoutborders.com/news/125/ARTICLE/1246/2007-04-12.html

His website is: http://www.philmendezartist.com

I knew the artist you were talking about as soon as I read your reply. He did some work in Huckleberry Hound #6 for Charlton as well as other H-B characters. I remember that particular story (Huck has a drippy faucet and tries to take care of it) because there was all sorts of images to look at.


During the Charlton period of the Hanna-Barbera comics, great part of the Huckleberry Hound stories were drawn by Frank Johnson, which was the Mort Walker's assistant in the Beetlle Bailey comic strip, as also produced the Boner's Ark comic strip (also created by Mort Walker) and the last twenty years of the Bringing up Father comic strip (created by George McManus who, after his death in 1954, the strip was continued by Bill Cavanaugh [scripts], Vernon Greene and Hal Camp [artwork] until 1980), between 1980 and 2000 (when the strip was canceled).
