Question for old animators at Hanna Barbara: 1960s - 1980s. Do Hanna Barbara cartoons use 30 frames/s or 24 frames/s, and did they draw most animation on 2s for real 15 frames/s or 12 frames/s?

I guess 30 frame/s (15 frames/s on 2s) because US company make cartoons for TV (US TV during that time is NTSC ≈ 30 frames/s).


As far as I can remember Hanna Barbara was not even on 2s! They would hold frames for seconds at a time. I often felt cheated on the hair bear bunch.
