Hanna-Barbera was an animation studio founded in 1957 by Joseph Barbera and William Hanna, with financial backing by film director George Sidney. Sidney formed a friendship with Barbera and Hanna when they worked at MGM as animation directors during the 1940s, and when MGM's animation department closed down, Sidney helped form a deal with Screen Gems, the television arm of Columbia Pictures, which led to the creation of Hanna-Barbera. In the 1990s, they also gained their own spin-off studio with Cartoon Network Studios, which become its own full-fledged studio when Hanna-Barbera was dismantled.

Hanna-Barbera had never been an independent studio, always having been a subsidiary of another company. In 1966, Hanna-Barbera was sold to Taft Broadcasting (later known as Great American Broadcasting), until 1991 when it was bought by Turner Entertainment Company. It was finally bought out by Time Warner when it merged with Turner in 1996, where it remains today, although only as a brand name. The studio continued to operate until 2002, when it was finally shut down after William Hanna died, with Warner Bros. Animation officially succeeding it. It remains as an in-name-only subsidiary of Warner Bros.

Hanna-Barbera was an in-house studio until the beginning of the 1970s when they outsourced to their Australian counterpart, and then to South Korea by the end of that decade. They also used other animation outlets in Spain and the Philippines in the '80s.
