1. Wacky Racers, Johnny Quest and Yogi Bear have all been out of media for the most part for years (What live-action Yogi Bear movie?); so they for the most part are unknown to most kids.
2. Tom and Jerry has the audience, they still show reruns everyday, and I haven't met a kid who hasn't watched it. However, there is only so many characters and locations that could make the theme interesting. Who wants the faceless owners and nameless cat number 3 from the normal house set?
3. Flintstones is one of HB's biggest shows, it's s known by all! So many characters could be used! What's stopping Lego from making this one? For the most part all licenses Lego has gotten are for tv shows and movie franchises that are airing currently. Flintstones hasn't had a major show since the 80's (They had a short lived one in 96), and the terrible movies haven't been in cinemas since the 90's. I think the best bet for this one is a Ideas set.
And bonus points for actually knowing who the Herculoids are
Did it air in the UK?
However as fun as the idea is, and while I know it's still popular in 'nerd culture' I think the average child wouldn't have a clue. I don't think it'd even work well for ideas because most of the interesting characters would need at least a new hat piece.
As a side note, I'd much rather see He-man.
It's terrible now as an adult.
Jump right to Venture Brothers
It's basically the same show (even has a few of the same characters) but with a lot more modem nerd appeal
Not enough kid appeal for it to actually happen though
Granted it'll never happen with MotU languishing in the nostalgia-verse with no current media to its name, but that's just another reason there needs to be a new movie made (a proper one, not 90% set on Earth).
Anything but HB.
Made me think of this thread. A ton of Hanna Barbera references.
I do like GI Joe though
There's actually a lot of adult context
I was a little shocked that all these shows that left such an obvious impact on all of our lives mostly only lasted one (maybe two) seasons (including Scobby Doo Where Are You)
Also, if Lego keeps this license they have a crazy awesome list of things to base sets around
I Mean if Scooby-Doo can have his very own LEGO set so can Jonny and whole entire Quest Team.
