GGACP celebrates the birthday of legendary animator William Hanna (born July 14) with this salute to Saturday morning cartoons featuring animation historian/author Jerry Beck (“The 50 Greatest Cartoons,” “The Hanna-Barbera Treasury”) and TV host/presenter Bill Leff (Me-TV’s “Toon In with Me”). In this episode, Jerry and Bill (along with Gilbert and Frank) look back on the kiddie show hosts of their youth and deconstruct beloved programs like “Looney Tunes,” “The Flintstones,” “Jonny Quest,” “The Jetsons,” “Underdog” and “Wacky Races." Also, Daffy Duck meets Jack Benny, Gomer Pyle “inspires” Milton the Monster, Jackie Gleason (almost) sues Hanna-Barbera and “Batmania” inspires a wave of super-knockoffs. PLUS: The genius of Jay Ward! The art of Dave and Max Fleischer! The Three Stooges go robonic! Jerry hangs with Chuck Jones and Friz Freleng! And the boys praise the talents of Mel Blanc, Daws Butler, Paul Frees and Paul Winchell!
