Help!… It’s the Hair Bear Bunch!

maxresdefault

Help!… It’s the Hair Bear Bunch! Was a Saturday morning cartoon, produced by Hanna-Barbera Productions in 1971 for CBS! And it was also one of my favorite cartoons.. In saying that, here’s some fun facts about this amazing cartoon! 

Did you know the Theme Song was Sung by the cast! 

Hbb

In the Wonderland Zoo,
There are certain bears who,
Stay at home every night,
Never quarrel or fight,
Ah! We don’t even bite!

So don’t yell,
Help! Help! Here come the bears,
Help! Help! Here come the bears,
Help! Help! Here come the bears,
Let’s split!

So don’t yell,
Help! Help! Here come the bears,
Help! Help! Here come the bears,
Help! Help! Here come the bears,
Let’s split!

Help! It’s the Hair Bear Bunch!

Spectra …lacy … spacy … and out of this world!

[From my Retro Blog Archives, I share a personal favorite! I was first introduced to this doll line, through my sister Bonnie, I blame her for most of my doll related memories! Spectra and Spark pictured above!]

Mattel released the Spectra line in late 1986, a year and a half after the debut of Hasbro’s Jem line, fully expecting to capitalize on Jem’s popularity.

How many Retro Cons have I attended? ALL OF THEM

The BEST part about Retro Con: The relaxed and friendly atmosphere. The most welcoming con I know.

Favorite Retro Con Panel: Actually, it was one I ran. When Connie was Cosmos for a taping of my Cosplay Spotlite talk show, but for the first part of the interview her voice was provided by Michael McConnohie. That was awesome!
