TV Shows - Laff-A-Lympics

Laff-A-Lympics was a Hanna-Barbera cartoon which debuted in 1977. It starred classic Hanna-Barbera characters competing in Olympic events, and three teams: The Yogi Yahooeys were comprised of characters from the 1950s and 1960s, including (but not limited to) Yogi Bear, Huckleberry Hound, Pixie, Dixie, Mr. Jinks, Hokey Wolf, Yakky Doodle, and more. The Scooby Doobies were comprised of characters from the 1960s and 1970s, including (but not limited to) Scooby Doo, Captain Caveman, Dynomutt, Speed Buggy, Hong Kong Phooey, and Babu. The teammates of the Really Rottens were based on villains and non-villain characters from Hanna-Barbera cartoons. For example, Mumbly is based on Muttley (Muttley being the sidekick to the villain Dick Dastardly), while the Creepleys were based on the Gruesomes (though the Gruesomes were introduced as the Flintstones' creepy new neighbors, they were not really villains).

1 Robert, That's good news because if the 'heroes' won ALL the time, there'd be no suspense or interest in said race! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on October 8, 2012, 8:22 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 Yes, other teams win. Even the Really Rottens! One thing puzzles me: The Gruesomes are given a palette swap, then cast as the Creeplies. The Really Rottens are supposed to be based on villains, but the Gruesomes weren't evil: they were just the Flintstones' creepy neighbors. Yet Mildew the wolf, who tries to eat Lambsy in each episode of "It's The Wolf!", IS a villain. But instead of being a Rotten, he's an announcer! -- Submitted By: (Robert) on October 7, 2012, 11:49 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
3 Does anyone remember what the intended prize was? I mean, if it was LAFF-a-Lympics, then maybe they should have made medals outta fools' good! Just sayin. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 3, 2012, 9:20 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
4 What I liked about this show was that it had several characters that I grew up with and they pretty much remained in character. My personal faves were Jinks the Cat, Huck, Hokey Wolf and Super Snooper. I always thought there should have been a fourth team, perhaps the Flintstone Rockers, which would have been made up of citizens of Bedrock. It could have included a few Jetson characters as well. Maybe not. It would probably have looked awkward anyway to see Flintstone or Jetson characters using 70's style sports equipment and vehicles. -- Submitted By: (JayD) on January 11, 2012, 11:27 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
5 I'll admit to loving this show and always looked forward to watching it every Saturday morning. I must have been a sucker for some of the "all star" 70's cartoons, because I watched Yogi's Ark (or whatever it was called) as well. -- Submitted By: (John63btf) on January 9, 2012, 11:47 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
6 New here, but I just gotta say, all of these get-togther sujperstar shows were just another fly in the ointment as why 70s-80s HB shows sucked...150 charactersa..world record even if the teams didn't set one.. -- Submitted By: () on January 7, 2012, 4:49 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
7 The Scooby or Yogi team would win out, but I thought it was great when in one episode the Rottons won by accident -- Submitted By: () on November 27, 2011, 11:59 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
