Heads Up Women of the HB by HeadsUpStudios Heads Up Women of the HB by HeadsUpStudios
This had to come out. It just had to. Did you ever have an idea in your head, but due to other things, you just don't have the time to do it? It just eats at you until you don't have a choice! I've been thinking about doing something with the Jetson's women for the last two months. I was originally gonna put Jane Jetson in the Desperate Housewives piece with Wilma and Betty, but decided against it. She belongs with Judy and Rosey.

Hope you all enjoy this! I gotta get back to work on requests!

I think the official spelling is Rosey. At least that's how it's spelled in my sweet new Hanna-Barbera Treasury book! Dom, if you don't have it already, this is a must-have for any HB fan! Oh, the ultra-cool stuff that's jam-packed in this book! AWESOME STUFF!

And, yeah, Blue Falcon (possibly Dynomutt!) is in the works...but it's super-secret! Don't tell anyone! :D

i wrote Jerry Beck to thank him for the book. i told him it was the book that should have been done by now by the various authors that have come out with tome's on this subject already. i also told him that it was a dream realized in tangible 3D greatness! got it just before Christmas and devoured it in front of many a fire on a cold wintry day!

Sweet! You know, there's another HB animation book with a cel-type cover that I've not been able to lay my hands on! It's out of print, unfortunately. My brother has it, and it's simply chock full of good HB stuff! Do you have it? I had a line on one from a dealer on the internet, used but in good condition...said he UPS'd it, but they lost it! I got a refund, but no book!:(

the one Sennet did was admirable, but chock full of pics and images seen millions of times before. he gets credit in my book for at least trying to showcase the breadth of HB leaving no character or series unearthed. However, the Mallory book which is the one you are asking about...at least i think that is the authors name, is not worth the cell it was mass produced on. as an oversized book to begin with, the pages are surpisingly sparse. i literally was looking at a two page spread about Wally Gator and it had 3 small pictures between both oversized pages. when i think about how chock full those pages could have been with unseen artwork and character design it just made me mad. the other thing it does is use WAY too much artwork that came out of the 90's,; i.e. the stuff created for that short lived craze of owning animation cels. it again was a bunch of lifeless non-production cel art, created in response to the fad that had really nothing to do with the artwork that made what HB became. the artwork of Ed Benedict, and Hawley Pratt and Dick Bickenback was all but missing in this sorry excuse for a coffee table book. i worked at Barnes and Noble at the time it came out and i was very annoyed that something i was passionate about came out and was done with next to no love at all, fanning the flames of that opinion that work from the HB studios was limited and crap, instead of showing what great and innovative things came from them as well as world renouned and beloved characters.

So what would recommend as far a book from which I would be able to get some excellent reference for the HB characters?

by the way, i just found the Flintstones book:
The Flintstones: a Modern Stoneage Phenomenon. by Adams

also i talked to Jerry, he might do another book of the later characters he did not do if his Treasury sells!

i also contacted DK Publishing who come out with those awesome "The U;timate Guide to..." books, don't know if you have seen them, they have Pink Panther, Looney Tunes, DC comics and Marvel and etc. i asked them if they would ever do one on HB and they said that they only put them out in relation to a movie. so, if the Jetsons movie, the live action one came out, we might have a shot at havinga truly Ultimate guide to HB!!!

Sorry for all the long and ridiculous comments

as i was a bookseller for 6 years i spent an innordinate amout of time searching for anything HB. Besides Jerry Beck's new book, there really are only 3 about the whole company, 1 great one about the flintstones, the one with the F on the cover and another that is in the collecting section that is called Hanna Barbera Toys. here is what i found

The Art of Hanna-Barbera: Fifty Years of Creativity by Ted Sennett

Hanna-Barbera Cartoons by Michael Mallory

If you want to get a book with some amazing and rarely seen art, get the following book. it is mostly made up of music for a piano player, but the cover and beginning 10 or so pages are amazing!

The Hanna-Barbera Songbook by Hal Leonard Corp.

Then there are 2 collectable books:

Classic Hanna Barbera Collectibles-came out last year
and i think its called
Hanna Barbera Collectibles
basically a price guide with cool pics of toys and what not.
the final book is one that was not distributed at any book store. you can find it on eBay like i did and it is the best thing next to Jerry's book. its called:
The World of Hanna Barbera Cartoons. this was a book you could only get at the HB company store.

do you have the Ted Sennet book? it was the first one that came out of its kind about HB and is totally admirable. its really thick and has pretty much eveything in it. i can't remember what its called, but that is the auther. it came out in the late 80's i think. the only other good book about HB and its characters in existence, and there really are less than 5, is the one about just the Flintstones and the cover has a big "F" on it. can't remember the title or auther but its pretty much as good as the Jerry Beck thing. as an HB collecter, i would not tell you (even though i already did, but i am really bitter about it) to not get the book with the Cel on the cover, cuz still, like i said, its one of under 5 on the topic, but if you have a Barnes and Noble in your area or Borders, periodically check out their Bargain Books; they are located at the front of the store, i have seen there as recently as a couple of years ago.
