Spring Hits a Snag (1961)

by Nicholas Sammond

Snagglepuss is in love with Lila the Lion, who runs to Snagglepuss asking him to save her from a hunter. He invites her into his home, upon which she expresses her dissatisfaction. Finally, he decides to face the hunter rather than stay with her.

This animated short is a good demonstration of how Hanna-Barbera developed the technique of limited animation, as seen in the panning scenes and those of Lila crying. Also, see in conjunction with later Flinststones animations to see the development of the home, prime-time oriented, domestic-centred humour employed.
