Toon Rock: Monster Shindig (1965-2001)

"Monster Shindig" was originally recorded for Hanna-Barbera's short-lived record label in 1965. Nearly 40 years later, Cartoon Network stitched together a compilation video of clips from The Flintstones, The Jetsons, Magilla Gorilla, & Snooper & Blabber, among others.

Believe it or else, the singer on this track would go on to a more lucrative career on the pop charts just 4 years later. Danny Hutton would later form Three Dog Night.

Hutton wasn't the only famous name recording for H-B. Laurie Johnson, better known as the composer of the theme from England's The Avengers, also recorded for H-B.
