Okay, how about the 00's-CN-throwback mistake known as "Jellystone"?

(Jabberjaw now sounds like JoAnne Worley? Augie Doggie as the psychotically-cute lil' girl from Despicable Me?? :? )

Changing Jabberjaw to a girl, no respect. Will say though despite the gender swaps, I think the show looks kinda cute.

Jellystone is actually hilarious. They have so many HB references and characters sprinkled throughout that even hardcore fans may not catch them all.

I say give it a try. :)

I definitely intend to. Have a few episodes recorded off of Cartoon Network, just haven't gotten around to watching.

Like the "deconstructive" gags of the "Wacky Racers" reboot, it's Warner indulging in more of their 00's-throwback issues:
Check off a list of all the 70's HB that was demonized during the "school-bully" phase...Yep, they even remembered the old Grape Ape jokes.
Only now, of course, they get to make Banana Splits jokes into more of a thing, since they can leech off the recent movie.

Still, though, the series creators having literally no idea who most of the characters are (I actually had to explain to one fan why Augie in the original cartoons was not only not a girl, but kept saying "Oh, the shame of it, my own dear father!") has the distinctly Gen-Z look of writers who only knew the entire 70's H-B canon from Internet memes, and the general directive that they should make mean-spirited fun of it because it was Old and Embarrassed Other Animators, because other people did when they were kids.
Which is the state of 21st-century Gen-Z humor--If you saw it on the web and don't understand it, improvise from scratch, bluff about how Random it is, and try to confuse somebody else.

Going by feedback and interviews, you couldn't be more wrong. Your Augie Doggie quote doesn't feel in-character either, (or accurate: "dear old Dad") that sounds more like something Sylvester Jr. would say!

Also, most of the main characters are from the 1960s...

Actually, looked up the old toons on a bootleg site (along with the rest of the MIA Quick-Draws), and once it gets going, he says it verbatim in at least a dozen cartoons.
And yes, it DOES sound like something Michael Maltese would have brought over from Warner, but you digress.

On the subject of old fans vs. new amnesiac ones, though, got into a fan discussion vs. the new “Huhuh, it’s funny and random and totally inappropriate, with Yogi acting like a deranged Peter Griffin…”, and the minute the slightest defense of the classic toons came up, the discussion turned to well-indoctrinated demonizations of why Magilla Gorilla was the Enemy of the People.
Until I started bringing up some specific Yogi examples, and the few old enough to remember them did concede there…was actually a bit of fourth wall wit to the vintage golden-era toons.
And then went back to the episode about the Banana Splits’ killing spree. :roll:

Just re-watched "High and Flighty" and sure enough Augie Doggie does say " Oh, the shame of it. My very own dad interfering with science, progress, and the exploration of outer space." Brain fart!

You can view the special here. Meant to post about it but slipped my mind. It was fun and informative with some fluff. Appreciated that they touched on all the various versions of the franchise. Didn't like how some of the flashbacks used the current VA's though, like with Velma. Dug the unmasking montage!

When the show was initially announced, I saw Mindy and Velma trending and for a moment thought it was about Mindy Cohn returning. You can imagine my disappointment. It didn't sound interesting and the image didn't do it any favors. I don't think anyone will really be upset IF it gets cancelled.
