The key word here is "blow."
How in the hell are they going to do a live-action Hong Kong Phooey? He's a dog, right? That means we get another terrible CG dog, but this time he's karate-chopping people and falling into dumpsters.

Well on the bright side, sooner or later they'll run out of shows and Space Ghost Coast to Coast will get a flick.

As long as they use permanent blue ink, I'm up for it.

I liked Hong Kong Fuey, but that's just me.

Me, personally, I want a GRAPE APE movie, dammit! NOW!

Also, anyone else remember the Genie who used to say "Yapple Dapple"? Wouldn't that be a great coming of age comedy for teens about magic and coming out of the bottle as it were?

    Please tell me you are kidding.

Well, you know something brotha? I liked JabberJaw! Always saying that he got no respect, I related to him in my high school days.

JabberJaw ruled. Now, you wanna talk about a really crappy Hanna Barbera cartoon, remember "Wheelie and the Chopper Bunch", the show on Cartoon Network that used to come right before Toonami? A waste of a perfectly good 30-minute time slot, if you ask me!

Probably the same person who greenlighted that stupid looking Armageddon rip off where the core of the Earth doesn't spin anymore, or the people who greenlighted Cool As Ice part 2.... errrr I mean the Eminem movie. But the Wonder Twins? There are so many better superheroes.... I could name 200 comic book characters that deserve a movie before they do.

Folks- think about this.

What Hanna-Barbera cartoon was popular, featured a "family" setting, had a little kid character (think "Happy Meals"), a funny talking dog (ditto), a teenaged girl (think young female singer-of-the-hour in casting) and the chance to use expensive special effect to overcome a useless script?

I've already seen the Jetsons movie. I liked it (as a kid). Let Cartoons STAY cartoons.

I have to agree about keeping cartoons cartoons, but if they did Johnny Quest the right way, it could be quite the sh*t!!

And not that New adventures crap. Go old school with Race peeling wigs and crackin jaws!!

Basicly I don't think any Hanna-Barbara shows deserve a movie. Especially all those old drug related shows. Any H&B cartoon that needed a laugh track should never become a movie.
But still Wonder Twins? Not only are they lame but they are boring. How exciting is watching the boy turn into a fogbank or ice? Will the monkey be there?

I agree, a Johnny Quest movie, if done right, could be good. Except, in today's PC world it couldn't be done right because I know several groups would complain about "Haji" and his turban and his "Sim Sim, Allah Bim!"

I think if they make a movie like Scooby Doo, then they should get girls who are pretty to play characters like Daphne. She's a major hottie! At least, that's what I thought when I was about 8 years old. buffy the vampire slayer with a red dye job didn't do justice, IMO. They could make a Penelope Pitstop movie and with the technology they used in "Babe" and MIB I & II they can have a real dog play Mugsley. That would be better than a CGI dog.

Well...

I actually liked the first Flintstones movie (never saw the second one, Viva Rock Vegas) and I also very much liked the Jetsons movie.

I can see possibly a Yogi Bear movie (as long as they keep it animated), but other than that, Hanna-Barbera should back the fuck off. Hell, in my opinion, Scooby-Doo the cartoon series wasn't good to begin with, but somehow it's enormously popular so they decide to leach a movie out of it? Bleh. I'm not even sure I'd use one of my Blockbuster free rentals to watch that movie.

I also thought George of the Jungle was quite entertaining-- along with the Flintstones, it's one of the few (non-Disney, non-comic strip) cartoons to successfully make the jump to live-action.

Of course, the first two Superman movies and X-Men were very, very good. I actually loved X-Men. Haven't seen Spider-Man yet, but I'm actually looking forward to it.

But The Wonder Twins? JabberJaw? Gaaaaaah. I think part of the success of Spider-Man was that Spider-Man was very popular before the movie was made. (Actually, that's ironically the same reason Scooby-Doo did so well at the box office-- heaven help us all). I don't think that very many people, particularly kids, have any idea who the Wonder Twins are. Hell, I didn't know who they were until this thread, even though CRZ routinely mentions them in his recaps. (“They're doing the Wonder Twin powers activate touch!”)

I'd say bring it on...more live action cartoon adaptations Let the trend run its course like the Disney cartoon musicals of the 90's and the "dark Batman style" adaptations
(still going strong). It's not like they won't show the original cartoon anymore if it bombs.

Since when has Hollywood been known for originality and creativeness anyway?

It'd be interesting for a studio to blow $60 million on a live action Yogi Bear considering the cartoon was as low budget as you could get: Yogi not moving when he talks, Yogi running past the same trees and rocks, same story, same Hanna Barbera music over and over.

I will say this-- Hanna Barbera should re-evaluate doing live movies-- but poder this thought-- Transformers, live action. A script roughly based off the pilot, REALLY good CGI, real moving models and animatronics. To just think about it-- it makes your blood curdle!
