Warner Brothers cartoons were always my favorite growing up. I enjoyed watching the Hanna Barbara ones too.
I never cared all that much for Disney. I love Donald Duck though, and I liked a couple of the movies.

I'd say Disney. But Hanna Barbera and Warner Bros has some really cool cartoons too!

Hanna - Barbera has always been my favorite cartoon studio. I also like Warner Brothers cartoons but not a big fan of Disney.

I can't decide! They all had great characters. I'll give a slight edge to Hanna Barbera because I like the Jetsons so much. :cool:

Well, movie wise the honors would go to Disney, but I do like the short cartoons as well. I also like Hanna Barbara cartoons. Love the Jetsons!

A really tough call. But I voted for H-B, because I grew up with the Hanna-
Barbera cartoons. I was ten years old, in 1957, when NBC's Ruff & Reddy made its debut, the very first H-B television series. I have to add that I
have also loved the Disney cartoons (both shorts and features) since the
mid-fifties, when I watched The Mickey Mouse Club and Disneyland. I have to confess that I became acquainted first with the Warner Bros.
characters in the Dell comic books. Then, in 1960, I was able to catch ABC's
Bugs Bunny Show (which aired in prime-time) and became a big fan of
the Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies shorts. So, I love 'em all. But the
stuff that Bill Hanna and Joe Barbera produced (especially from 1957-1966) will always have a special place in my heart. Those were very well-made cartoons that still stand up today. The animation was very simple, but the voice-acting, sound effects, writing and music were top notch.

hanna barbera- i prefer their cartoons and characters more than the other two.

I love the variety from Hanna-Barbera, but Bugs Bunny was the face of Warner Brothers, so it is a toss up between the two. Disney, I peferred their movies over their cartoons.

Gotta go with Hanna Barberra because of the Flintstones and some of the other great cartoons they had. Warners was good too. I have never really been much of a Disney fan.

My Hanna-Barbera favorites include:
Josie and the Pussycats
The Hillbilly Bears
The Banana Splits
Lippy the Lion and Hardy Har Har
Touche Turtle and Dum Dum

Hanna Barbara no dobt. Love The Flintstones, Love Jetsons, Love Top Cat, Loved Scobby Doo, Yogi bear everything. What does Warner Bro's Got. Bugs Bunny, daffy duck, porkey pig. Hanna Barbara Is Just Better no dobt. Bugs and everything are and always will be the classic shows, but hanna barbara is absolutley better.

It was too hard to tell for me, so I chose Warner Bros. and here's why....
1. Warner Bros. Their cartoons were really out there. Bugs Bunny was the wise-ass rabbit who outsmarted Elmer Fudd and there was also Pepe le Pew, Roadrunner, Sylvester (both with and without Tweety), Daffy Duck, Porky Pig, and Foghorn Leghorn.
2. Hanna-Barbera Sure, they had Tom and Jerry, but they also had some cartoons such as Yogi Bear, Huckleberry Hound, Top Cat, Secret Squirrel, and even some unknown characters such as Loopy de Loop (which is my favorite H-B Character), Ruff and Reddy, and Sneezly and Breezly.
3. Disney This would be in third. Sure, they have some good cartoons and movies, sure they had The Disney Afternoon which kicks-ass, but they really outdo themselves with sequels and direct-to-video. Also, I really don't like Mickey Mouse because nothing really happens to him, he's just a charismatic character. Now Donald Duck...he has a storyline and a family that treats him like ****...hell, he could have his own Prime-Time sitcom if Disney would let him. And his friends are multi-cultural (Yes, "The Three Caballeros" is also my favorite Disney Movie) with his amigos Joe Carioca and Panchito Pistoles...also...who else in Disney has the guts to bare it all? Donald Duck!

Clearly Disney. I liked some of the stuff Warner Brothers did, but I never found their characters as lovable as those done by Disney. And Hanna Barbara would be third.

Aww man I missed the poll. My pick would be Hanna Barbera for sentimental reasons. I've seen more of their cartoons growing up and I fondly remember all of them.

It was a hard choice between H-B and Warner brothers but I chose Warner Brothers because of Looney Tunes. The Looney Tunes cast is awesome.

imo Warner Brothers makes the best cartoons overall. I'm not a big fan of their toons from the 1930s, but once the 40s hit, it was one classic after another. Bugs and Daffy, Bugs and Elmer Fudd, Daffy and Porky (my favorite pairing), Road Runner, and of course, Sylvester and Tweety (and their canine adversaries).
I've actually never been a huge fan of the Disney shorts, I don't think they're nearly as funny as the best of the WB stuff. I thought the Goofy cartoons were the funniest when I was a kid, and Donald Duck was OK.
The Disney animated full length theatrical releases was, imo, the best hand-drawn animation quality ever done.
The Hanna Barbera cartoons were excellent. Daws Butler was the equal of Mel Blanc in his ability to voice memorable characters.
But the WB cartoons of the 40s and 50s still crack me up...I'm just amazed at the quality of those cartoons when I see them today. Everything from the dialogue, the voice characterizations, the animation and artwork... and especially the WB songs from their movies which are incorporated into the soundtrack of the cartoons.
