Building on the Battle of The Network Stars fever of the late 70s, ABC green lighted Laff-A-Lympics. A groundbreaking animated series that featured 45 of the Hanna-Barbera staples competing in all types of Olympic competitions. Announcing duties went to the always witty Snagglepuss and Mildew Wolf. The cartoon aired from 1977-78. Sadly it ended without an official medal ceremony or at least letting us know the final scores. Thankfully Wikipedia did go through all the episodes and collected the results from every event. Here’s the official tally as of October 28, 1978…

The Scooby Doobies: 14 wins

The Yogi Yahooeys: 7 wins

The Really Rottens: 2 wins
