It seems as if many older Hanna-Barbera series had steamboat plots. It happened in Captain Caveman and the Teen Angels, The Little Rascals cartoon spinoff, and at least two Scooby-Doo series.
Of all the steamboat plots Hanna-Barbera ever produced, I like "Cap'n Spanky's Showboat" from The Little Rascals cartoon spinoff the most. Though "Showboat Scooby" is pretty good, probably my second most favorite steamboat plot.
"Cap'n Spanky's Showboat" used the Mississippi Queen as the episode's ship, but I wonder if the owners of the real Mississippi Queen (which was launched in 1976) could have sued Hanna-Barbera productions for using the name, which was likely a violation of copyright infringement?
