Notes/trivia

  • He has a cameo in the Johnny Bravo/Scooby-Doo crossover episode, Bravo Dooby-Doo, where he is one of the extra disguises of worn by Jebediss Bravo. Mr. B from What's New, Scooby-Doo? is also modelled on him; "Mr. B" was one of Barbera's nicknames.[1]
  • Hanna and Barbera are not credited for having involvement for the first direct-to-video film, Scooby-Doo on Zombie Island. Instead, they are given sole credit for creating the characters, while half true, their company only animated them; their true creators were Joe Ruby and Ken Spears. In fact, Hanna himself said (via archive footage) on the Mystery Inc. Yearbook featurette (passed around a few of the DVDs in the early to mid 2000s) that it was a team effort. Later films would say "Based on Characters Created By Hanna-Barbera Productions".
