Game of Thrones Sigils Re-Imagined Using Hanna-Barbera Characters

Part of the fun of Game of Thrones is the depth of the universe created by George R.R. Martin and HBO. Visit the Viewer’s Guides on HBO’s website and you’ll realize just how much time and effort they’ve put into their creation. There are maps, family trees, family slogans (their “words”, as it were), brief histories of each of the houses, and sigils for each house. A sigil is a sign, or banner, inscribed with magical powers. If you were a sociologist, you might think of these sigils as the power animals for the respective houses of Game of Thrones. As it turns out, the Hanna-Barbera universe also had a lot of powerish animals. And… well, I think you see where this is going.

Hokey Wolf, House Stark

Lippy the Lion, House Lannister

Wally Gator, House Targaryen

Squiddly Diddly, House Greyjoy

Unfortunately, Hanna-Barbera didn’t have any animated deer, so House Baratheon didn’t make the cut. The only fish they had were from something called Fish Police that aired for six episodes in 1992 and was clearly not the same animated style.

  1. HAHAHA Awesome work my friend. I freaking love this show

    • I’ve become a huge nerd for Game of Thrones with startling efficiency. Are you guys getting season 2 across the pond, or do you have to wait?

  2. Hilarious! I had to check the originals to fully appreciate (I haven’t watch the show yet) but nice work here!

    • If you get a chance, I highly recommend the show. Even just the first episode. You’ll know pretty quickly if you want to watch the rest of the series after the first episode.

  3. Nice mixture of two great forms of entertainment. I wish you could have found a place for Captain Caveman.

    • Ha… you know what? Given that Robert Baratheon was basically a medieval version of Captain Caveman, that’s the route I should have gone.

  4. Haha, I love the squid/kraken.

  5. Ahah, your creativity never ceases to amaze me John. I might check out a couple of episodes of Game of Thrones and see if I like it.

  6. Haha, good stuff, man! I love the Blu-ray of season one simply because it is stacked with all sorts of extras. Very helpful for those who haven’t read the books (like myself).
