Joseph Barbera, one half of legendary toon-team Hanna-Barbera, who died on Monday.
always thought that every piece of music you've ever heard has an
influence on you in some way, especially if you're a musician. So these
are some very early influences on Johnny Domino!
Hanna-Barbera - Dastardly And Muttley [Main Title]
That's Paul Winchell on lead Dastardly.
Hanna-Barbera - The Flintstones [End Title]
end title from The Flintstones features some great sound effects and is
almost good enough to make you forget the AWFUL John Goodman film.
Don't mention The BC-52's...
Hanna-Barbera - Perils Of Penelope Pitstop [Main Title]
Fantastic laugh here from Paul Lynde.
Hanna-Barbera - Hair Bear Bunch [Main Title]
Visit The Hair Bear Bunch
Hanna-Barbera - Secret Squirrel [Main Title]
love this one because the vocals are so totally half-arsed. You can
pracitically hear the cigarettes dangling off their lips and the studio
clock ticking down. It's mixed strangely, too - it's like your mates are
singing along with the TV... "with a rat-tat-tat-tat-tat!"
Hanna-Barbera - Hong Kong Phooey [Main Title]
I couldn't miss that one off, could I?
Hanna-Barbera - Josie & The Pussycats [Main Title]
Hanna-Barbera - Josie & The Pussycats [End Title]
Marc-o would have had a total mard if I'd not put these on. I can't
remember this one at all (although I've seen the GREAT film from a
couple of years back). Bloody excellent theme tune, however. The End
title is included to give you the full-on nostalgic rush from the
Hanna-Barbera ident at the end.
Hanna-Barbera - Touché Turtle [Main Title]
Brief and to the point, unlike...
Hanna-Barbera - Wacky Races [Main Title]
Does this say something about the HB quality controversy? There can't have been much time for the cartoon after that...
Hanna-Barbera - Tra La La Song [Banana Splits Theme]
...but you can't really argue with the good vibes you get from this one, can you? Enjoy.
