Lippy the Lion & Hardy Har Har is one of three segments from The Hanna-Barbera New Cartoon Series. The other segments that compose this trilogy are Wally Gator and Touché Turtle and Dum Dum. The segment ran for 2 seasons for a total of 52 episodes. Starting in 1992, reruns of the series aired on Cartoon Network until 2000. In 2000, the series began airing on Cartoon Network's sister channel Boomerang.


Lippy the Lion (voiced by Daws Butler) and Hardy Har Har the Hyena (voiced by Mel Blanc) first appeared in The Hanna-Barbera New Cartoon Series in 1962, along with Wally Gator and Touché Turtle and Dum Dum. Mel Blanc used the same voice, personality and expressions for Hardy Har-Har that he used playing the postman on the Burns and Allen radio show. Hardy's name is ironic, as it suggests laughter and Hardy is an eternal pessimist.

Their cartoons revolved around ever-hopeful Lippy's attempts to get rich quick, with reluctant Hardy serving as a foil. Whatever the consequences were to Lippy's schemes, Hardy would end up getting the worst of it — a fact he always seemed to realize ahead of time, with his moans of, "Oh me, oh my, oh dear." Although the intro shows them in a jungle setting proper for such beasts, most of the cartoons' stories took place in an urban setting.
