This show was originally on the "Funtastic World of Hanna Barbera". The characters pair off into a couple of different groups and each group tries to find the treasure first. Top Cat gives clues along the way to aid in their hunt. Dastardley and Muttley get in the way and try to steal the treasure for themselves.

The show focus on Yogi Bear and his friends from the Hanna Barbera family like, Quick Draw, Huckleberry Hound, Auggie Doggy and Doggy Daddy, Dasterdly and Mudley and all the memorable favorites from the past. The show explains how the gang get together to find the missing treasure. The show may be airing on Boomerang on Satelittes.
Casper and the Angels (1979)
Casper the Friendly Ghost was a guardian angel for two female motorcycle space cops named Minnie (who was rather ditzy and had a Southern accent) and Maxie (who was a much more intelligent African-American woman) in the year 2179. They were joined by a rambunctious ghost named Hairy Scary, who would scare villains and troublemakers, but unlike most other ghosts, was accepting of the fact that Casper was a gentle ghost who did not like to scare people.
The All-New Popeye Show (1977)
1978 marked the beginning of a new era for the squinty-eyed sailor, returning to the small screen in The All-New Popeye Hour.
This series was broken up into different segments: The Adventures of Popeye, Popeye's Treasure Hunt, Popeye's Sports Parade, and Dinky Dog. The latter segment starred a huge mutt and had little or nothing to do with Popeye or any sort of maritime activity.
Because of the changing times, these episodes featured less fighting and more trickery on the part of Popeye's nemesis, who was back to being called Bluto after his mysterious name-switching run as "Brutus." Each episode also featured a public service portion, in which the spinach-eating swabby would educate his nephews Peepeye, Pupeye, and Pipeye on topics such as home safety or sensible dieting.
Clue Club (1976)
Clue Club was a cartoon about four precocious young investigators (Dotty, Larry, D.D. and Pepper) who solved crimes with the help of two bloodhounds, Woofer and Whimper. Dotty, the brains of the team, would stay at home and analyze any clues that the gang found. The older dog, Woofer, thought he was a very good detective so he would always take the credit for solving the case. The laughs in the show were provided by Woofer and Whimper, due to their fear of the spooky places the gang went. The show only had one year of first run episodes, after which it aired in repeats on The Skatebirds under the new title Woofer and Whimper, Dog Detectives. These repeats were severely edited, which made the show particularly hard to follow. After a year on The Skatebirds, CBS reinstated the full episodes and re-ran them on Sundays under the original title. The show ran for another four months, cancelled in January of 1979.
The New Tom & Jerry Show
After years of fighting, and continuously trying to do each other in, Tom and Jerry have called truce, and are now best friends. This cartoon is a more gentle, and non-violent show. Jerry had a new look, with his red bow tie on. They go on new adventures together through the world of sports, villains, and more. Like in the original show, Tom and Jerry don't speak. The show was cut up in three short 10-minute episodes. It wasn't as popular as its predecessor, but it is still remembered by its creators, and, of course, its fans.
Super Friends first aired on ABC on September 8, 1973, featuring well-known DC characters Superman, Batman and Robin, Wonder Woman, and Aquaman as part of its Saturday morning cartoon lineup. It was produced by Hanna-Barbera and was based on the Justice League of America (JLA) and associated comic book characters published by DC Comics.
The name of the program (and the JLA members featured with the Super Friends) have been variously represented (as Super Friends and Challenge of the Super Friends, for example) at different points in its broadcast history.
The Addams Family (1973)
The animated series of the weird, wealthy family as they find things pleasing that most people would just rather avoid. There is Gomez Addams, the father of the family and his wife Morticia. Their children are Wednesday, who loves to torture anything in her reach, especially Pugsley, who takes those tortures in delight almost as much as food. Then there is Uncle Fester. He loves explosives, any you usually find him with ash all over his face. Grandmama is a witch, and can usually brew something up. They also have a butler, Lurch and a dismembered helping hand named 'Thing', Instead of greetings guests, Thing tends to just scare them off. Occasionally, Cousin Itt stops by. Cousin Itt is a tiny, mass of hair who mumbles instead of speaking.
Yogi's Gang (1973)

Inch High, Private Eye
Inch High, Private Eye was a 1973 Saturday morning cartoon produced by Hanna-Barbera Productions. The titular character of Inch High, Private Eye was a miniature detective (literally one inch high). Inch often enlisted the help of his niece Lori (sometimes written "Laurie"), her muscle-bound friend Gator, and their dog Braveheart to help solve mysteries. Their primary mode of transportation was the Hushmobile, a streamlined car that made virtually no noise while being driven, making it perfect for following criminals unnoticed. The small Inch worked for The Finkerton Detective Agency (a wordplay lampoon of The Pinkerton Detective Agency), where the boss (Mr. Finkerton) constantly dreamed of the day that he would fire him.
Butch Cassidy & The Sundance Kids (1973)
The show was about a group of young people who were members of a band, the Sundance Kids. They had a lot of fans, had records, signed autographs, etc. But the band was just a cover. Actually, the Sundance Kids were undercover members of the CIA. They posed as a band to lift suspicion off of them while they solved the cases assigned to them. They got their assignments from their 'manager' a branch of the CIA posing as The World Wide Talent Agency. The head of it was the manager, a huge computer called Mr. Socrates, who looked and sounded like HAL from '2001, A Space Oddessy', and who would contact the Sundance Kids va Butch's radio ring whenever he had an assignment for them. He would line up a gig for them so no one would wonder why musicians were there while they solved the case. There was at least one song in every episode. The characters: BUTCH CASSIDY (seriously!): The Designated leader of the Kids. He plays Lead Guitar and is the Lead Singer of the group. Unlike Fr
Sealab, an underwater research base based on the Challenger Seamount (an underwater mountain), in the year 2020 (48 years in the future at the time of broadcast).
