Well with Jellystone going on HBO Max. What other Hannah Barbera properties that need revivals do you fans would want on HBO Max? Oh and please no more Scooby Doo. That mutt has had more than enough Revivals and Reboots.

These are my top picks

1. Johnny Quest- yes the first and classic HB adventure show. I don't think fans got enough of the Quest crew after Real Adventures ended. We keep getting teased with a Live Action Version that is no where close to happening. So what the heck give us a new reboot please.

2. Swat Kats- One of my favorite HB cartoon from the 90s. Has a bunch of loyal fans still clamoring for revival to this day. It was one of the most action packed North American cartoons I've ever seen. Great characters with some really good villains. Had great anime style animation as well. Would love to have it back.

3. Pirates of Dark Water- My bias for the 1990s HB cartoon continues. What can I say. I loved it when HB started making adult oriented violent shows for kids. We need more of it today. Yeah Pirates was so unique. Blending a Pirate movies with a Dune/Star Wars like world. It was violent and not really for kids at all. Like Swat Kats aniamtion was terrific. Sad that we never saw an end to this interesting series.

4. Hong Kong Phooey- Oh I love this show. Just funny with great work from Shinings own Scatman Crothers. Would love to see a modern adaptation. An underrated IP in my opinion.

5. Laff-Alympics- Seeing most of the comedy HB characters get together to play sports just tickled me. This definitely needs a return.

6. Snorks- Yes I admit it. I enjoyed this blatant Smurfs ripoff very much. Sue me. More than happy to see it come back.

I Agree on Snorks it was one of my favorites and SWAT Kats for sure needs a reboot its so forgotten didn't know it still had a fan base still to this day. I am gonna throw another out there another gem that seems forgotten Road Rovers I know it only got 1 season at 13 episodes but feel it could make a good reboot if given a 2nd chance !

For the record, that's "Jellystone". As for what I'd like, it would be a PROPER revival of "Wacky Races" with ALL of the original characters and cars!

Oh yes Swat Kats still does. They even kickstarted a potential reboot a few years back with the Creators. Though it never got off the ground thanks to WB controlling the rights.

i love Road Rovers that and Freakazoid. Although those are more KidsWB than Hannah Barbera. But since this is my thread and they are all WB IPs. I’ll allow it good choice.

I'd love a Pirates of Dark Waters revival/reboot. It had a pretty interesting premise, was pretty engaging and really should have gotten a chance to get a conclusion. I do wonder if it would have attracted more attention if they had premiered the show during the 2000's instead.

Probably not. WB was still more about selling toys back then. Thats why JLU, Teen Titans, and Thundercats were ended. Their toy lines were not big sellers.
Maybe today would be a good time. Considering how hell bent Warnermedia is to boost subscribers to HBO Max.

I don't know about you, but I'd think it would be best if WarnerMedia rebrand TruTV and make Adult Swim a 24-Hour channel, and make Cartoon Network a 24-Hour channel again, but that's just wishful thinking.
