Are these eyes watching YOU?

Like other animation studios, Hanna-Barbera frequently used the comedy device of showing only the eyes of characters in the dark.

The All-New Popeye Hour

  • In "Popeye Meets the Blutostein Monster", Popeye's and Olive Oyl's eyes are briefly visible in the darkened upper story of the Blutostein castle.

The Little Rascals

The Perils of Penelope Pitstop

  • This show's opening/closing titles start with the Hooded Claw's eyes, followed by those of Penelope.


  • In "The Great Pac-Quake", Pac-Man follows Blinky into a cave. Both characters' eyes are visible in the dark before Blinky is chomped.



  • In "The Smurfs and the Howlibird", when four of the Smurfs were inside a log hiding from the aggressive bird, their eyes are seen in the dark.
