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!

Prehistoric Bots!

dinobots2

Childhood dreams are made of these.. I’ve always been this huge fan of the prehistoric period, and the dinosaurs that had once roamed the earth! So upon my introduction to Transformers in early 1985, I fell in love with the Dinobots almost immediately! War of the Dinobots, became a regular in our house, after the VHS was released.

All the characters on [The Transformers] were brilliant of course, but these Giant Dinos were fascinating! No one dared mess with Grimlock and his Dinobots, that is unless you wanted to become scrap metal?!
