Here is another classic cartoon series realsed by Hallmark Cards. The Shirt Tale line of greeting cards was animal characters wearing T-shirts with their name on or a cuddly message on it. The Shirt Tale cards were among Hallmark's best sellers at that time, which led the company to team with Hanna-Barbera Productions to adapt the Shirt Tales into a Saturday morning cartoon, which premiered on NBC on September 18, 1982.

The card line remained, but faded shortly after the show left broadcast television in 1985.
