Hooray...something on copyright that I *know*!

The copyright is actually registered to "Hanna-Barbera Cartoons Inc.",
which is a wholly owned subsidiary of Turner Entertainment. The Bros.
don't hold any form of copyright (H-B creators have to sign over all their
rights in order to get stuff like the WPT's and "Two Stupid Dogs" done in the
first place) aside from the apparent rights to a feature film should one be
produced. Your disclaimer really only has to include "Hanna-Barbera".
