Atom Ant was an animated comedy airing on NBC. It was the second made-for-Saturday morning cartoon by the Hanna-Barbera studio (the first was Ruff and Reddy).
The title character is a superhero insect imbued with atomic power. He faces numerous villains and megalomaniacs, the regular being scientist Dr. Crankenshaft. Joining Atom Ant are Precious Pupp (starring a snickering dog and his mistress Granny Sweet) and The Hillbilly Bears.
In 1967, Atom Ant joined companion H-B show Secret Squirrel in a combined half-hour show. In 1970, Atom Ant became an element in the syndicated Banana Splits show.
Hanna-Barbera produced the series in association with Screen Gems. Warner Bros. Television distributes the show due to its ownership of the Hanna-Barbera catalogue.
