These are animated cartoon characters that debuted on American television in 1962.

Left to right:
Touché Turtle - The New Hanna-Barbera Cartoon Series
Astro - The Jetsons
George Jetson - The Jetsons
Wally Gator - The New Hanna-Barbera Cartoon Series
Space Angel - Space Angel
Deputy Dawg - The Deputy Dawg Show

A little background:
Hanna-Barbera dominated animated TV series this year with The Jetsons and a bunch of characters on The New Hanna-Barbera Cartoon Series.

Space Angel was one of those series that had very limited animation in the same style as Clutch Cargo.

In doing my research, Terrytoons The Deputy Dawg Show was sometimes listed as different years, but I found most sources to say 1962, so that's where I put him.

Thanks for taking the time to read this. If you want to see more, check out the "History of TV Animation" section of my gallery.

Thanks for the history lesson. Now I'll have these characters when I think of 1962.

I remember them well. Growing up in the early 1960's it was a great way to enjoy a Saturday morning with a big bowl of cereal and crowd around the big black and white tv. My favorite Deputy Dawg episode involved D D trying to catch a wayward steam shovel that he and the other varmits called the "Prehisterical Monster".


Oh, and my favorite cartoon that year was Beany and Cecil which was the creation of Bob Clampett after he had left the old Warner Brothers studios a few years before. Fun fact: One of the TerryToons animators of Deputy Dawg was a young man named Don Bluth that would later see his animation come out in the late 1960's was called The Mighty Heroes. I still watch it from time to time over at YouTube.
