Jim Lee Has “Weird Idea” To Unite DC’s Hanna-Barbera Universe

In the latest episode of DC All Access, DC Comics Co-Publisher Dan DiDio revealed that, not only does DC have plans to add to its recently announced line of Hanna-Barbera comic books, but his fellow Co-Publisher, Jim Lee, has a “weird idea” to unite the stories into one continuity that stretches “from The Flintstones to The Jetsons.”

My hope is that these go so well, we can start to expand into more characters.  We have a couple in mind.  But in Jim’s mind, he thinks of this all as one cohesive universe, and he wants to see how it can tie in.  Everything.  Creating a world that goes from The Flintstones to The Jetsons, through Wacky Racers, through Future Quest, and Scooby Doo.  He has a weird idea that this is all one cohesive universe, and if anyone can pull something like that together, he’s the guy.

It’s not unheard of to see Hanna-Barbera characters pop up in different characters’ shows occasionally, but this would be on a whole new level.

  • Funtastic, And Oh BTW It’s Jonny Quest Without The H. 😉

  • Well, since The Jetson meet The Flintstones established them in the same universe, not too hard to put Scooby Doo inbetween. Scooby already had Blue Falcon, sort of (if we assume the actor was acting based on real life events, and references to Jonny Quest. Plus, Dexter’s Labatory featured Bf 7 Dynomutt in an ep, so boom, there’s Dexter for ya. With Scooby and Astro talking, not too hard to get Yogi, Huckleberry Hound, etc as full blown talking animals. So, yup, this idea can work. With only minimal suspension of disbelief.

    • And Don’t Forget Jonny Quest Teams Up With Tom And Jerry Last Year As Well.
