    Did any of these above-listed acclaimed session musicians ever participate in the recordings of certain Hanna-Barbera cartoon theme songs and background music cues in the 1974-1983 period, much in the same sense that such musicians like the members of the "Wrecking Crew," including Tommy Tedesco (guitar), Carol Kaye (bass) and Hal Blaine (drums), had done so for certain cartoon themes in the 1960s?

    For example, I want to think The Super Globetrotters theme featured contributions by members of the "Funk Brothers" and MFSB.
