Status: Lost


Jokebook was an adult-oriented Hanna-Barbera animated series for NBC. It ran from April 23, 1982 to May 7, 1982, only airing 3 out of 7 episodes.

Each episode featured 20-25 individual animated segments. These were selected from foreign films, student films, cartoon shorts, and original concepts. Each short ranged from 20 seconds to 3 minutes.

Some shorts included are Oscar winners "Crunch Bird" and "The Fly".

The show has not been known to re-air after its first showing on TV. eBay listings of stills, storyboards and other pre-production artwork are still being circulated. The only thing around is it's opening scene and first episode.
