Hanna-Barbera’s These Are the Days originally ran on ABC from September, 1974 to September, 1975. A total of 16, 30-minute episodes were produced.
The series was one of the few serious cartoons created by HB and focused on an early-20th century family, the Days, who lived in the town of Elmsville. These Are the Days was something akin to an animated version of The Waltons, with it’s old-timey feel and espousal of family values.
So far, the series is mostly-forgotten and isn’t available for purchase. Perhaps, Warner Brothers will rectify that soon via their DVD-to-Order service. Many fine actors provided voice work for These Are the Days including; Frank Cady (Petticoat Junction), Micky Dolenz (The Monkees), Henry Jones (Phyllis) and June Lockhart (Lassie).
