    Let´s talk about the computerized coloring system Hanna-Barbera used in the 1980s including its history, the technical aspects of the system, and even an example of the process of coloring an animation frame. This early use of digital ink-and-paint (which was still uncommon at the time) fascinated me therefore I was glad to find an article about it.

    A few examples of Hanna-Barbera productions that used this coloring system included Smurfs, Snorks, Flintstones Kids, Yogi's Treasure Hunt, the Opening scene of Popeye and Son, The Jetsons revival, and A Pup Named Scooby-Doo. When the '90s began, I believe H-B journeyed back to their original hand-painted coloring method and computer coloring system examples of BRB International S.A. from Spain such as Sandokan (1992) and Willy Fog 2 (1993).

    This seems more fitting in Saturday Morning Forever!, so I moved this thread there.

    Discussing the old Hanna-Barbera animation studio's is one thing, but plagiarism from another website is another. Consider this thread locked.
