Hanna-Barbera produced a succession of very popular tv cartoon shows, including The Flintstones, Yogi Bear, The Jetsons, Scooby-Doo, and The Smurfs. The Olympikids concept was developed as another show but the story line was never produced.
These Hanna-Barbera characters included 6 Olympikids and 2 coaches. They all trained on a ship. Other characters were the ship's captain, his boy, and the boy's dog and bird. Even though a show featuring them never happened, the various characters were featured as Olympic pins.
These pins were produced as part of a collection, commissioned by the Seoul Olympic Committee, to commemorate the 1988 Seoul summer games. A second collection was made for the 1988 Calgary winter Olympic games.
This information was provided in a 1987 publication by Hanna-Barbera. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

We have many more to list. If there is something in particular you are looking for, just ask.
