A lot or a little?
The parents' guide to what's in this website.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that this site doesn't have much more to offer than things you can download, things you can buy, and things you can play. Banner ads abound, and kids must watch an ad before playing a game. Kids can click on Warner Bros. Studios' discrete menu bar on the top of the home page and have access to movies, TV shows, and videos that might be inappropriate for them to see. In terms of violence, there's a requisite amount of old-fashioned cartoon violence in the video clips in the "Saturday Morning Forever" section.

What's it about?
Is it any good?
Hanna-Barbera.com is a trip down memory lane for those who grew up watching the Saturday morning favorites, and it caters to the new generation with an endless supply of downloads for your computer and cell phone. The games, e-cards, polls, quizzes, and offerings to download everything from screensavers to buddy icons border on sensory overload, and it may take a few visits to the site before kids uncover some of the hidden treasures.
It's important to note that many of these downloads are found on vendor sites that aren't affiliated with Hanna-Barbera and must be purchased.
Talk to your kids about ...
Families can talk about the historical references in some of the cartoons such as The Flintstones and The Jetsons. What was it like when dinosaurs roamed the earth? If you had to go back to the Stone Age, what's one thing you couldn't live without? Do you think we'll ever drive flying cars?
