Warner Home Video will release THE HUCKLEBERRY HOUND SHOW: VOLUME 1, THE YOGI BEAR SHOW: THE COMPLETE SERIES and THE FLINTSTONES: THE COMPLETE FOURTH SEASON on DVD Nov. 15. Each four-disc deluxe collectors box set will retail for $44.98.

"Hanna-Barbera is responsible for producing some of television's most memorable and enduring cartoon characters, commented Dorinda Marticorena, WHV vp, Kids and Sports Marketing. We feel privileged to have the opportunity to bring their wonderful creations to consumers everywhere. Yogi Bear, Huckleberry Hound and The Flintstones all won over American audiences the instant they hit the airwaves and today they still remain as popular as ever. We think these box sets will be a big hit with a variety of audiences, everyone from vintage animation collectors, to those nostalgic for the past to generally anyone who wants to enjoy great quality entertainment."

Huckleberry Hound is the brilliant blue canine who charmed viewers with his slow southern drawl and fast wit. THE HUCKLEBERRY HOUND set includes 26 vibrantly remastered and restored episodes of THE HUCKLEBERRY HOUND SHOW, the first animated series ever to win an Emmy award, which introduced future icons Yogi Bear and Boo Boo

THE YOGI BEAR SHOW aired a total of 35 episodes, all of which have been completely remastered and restored for this collection. Beloved for his Robin Hood-like antics and endlessly inventive schemes to swipe "pic-a-nic" baskets, Yogi was arguably the first outlaw cartoon hero.

Viewers learn the back-story of how Fred and Barney originally met Betty and Wilma while working at the Honeyrock Hotel.
