"The Hair Bear Bunch" is a throwback to "Yogi Bear," "Top Cat" and other sitcom/funny animal cartoons that HB did in the early '60s expanding the seven-minute short into a 23-minute episode. This show is traditional Hanna-Barbera with little nods to the '70s, like Hair Bear's afro hairdo and a few other groovy affectations.
Daws Butler voices Hair Bear, not like he played Yogi, but with a more Phil Silvers sound. If you have the "Top Cat in Robin Hood" HBR record, it's that voice. Bill Callaway (one of the "Love, American Style" Players and voice of Aquaman on "Superfriends") voices Square Bear. Paul Winchell is Bubi, crossing Jerry Mahoney with the double-talk gibberish much like Vaudeville comedian Al Kelly.
The hapless villains are zoo keeper Eustace P. Peevly, voiced by Mr. Slate/Dr. Quest voice veteran John Stephenson. You'll notice that his performance is a little less extreme in the first episode. It became more of a Joe Flynn type thereafter (perhaps Flynn commanded a high salary, having just had a substantial supporting role in 1969's number one film, "The Love Bug," as well as other Disney comedies).
