I'd say this looks to be a heavy indicator WB is going to be done with the more experimental shows soon. Whatever AT&T's plan is, I think we're now in the period where things are going to be slowly more revealed.
Guess Who and the Tom and Jerry Show will probably finish whatever they have left to be made. (Mind you ALL of these shows have backlogs of episodes not yet aired on the app or tv) before they get retooled.

There's a unexpected addition in a post someone from the Animation Guild posted like a few weeks ago. While it does look like they've not continued the other legacy properties except Scooby Doo and Guess Who (The Tom and Jerry Show is not listed so it may have wrapped production too by now). But it also mentions there are Hanna Barbera "shorts" in the work as well.
We know they're trying that approach with the Looney Tunes in a more creator driven approach (we assume according to press release). So I'm really getting the feeling here they are hedging their bet just in case AT&T really does lose the appeal case. So that they can have a clean break should they have to divorce Boomerang and then all the new shows could start at a new channel. That Banana Splits movie going to a non Turner Network is also looking very ominous right now on this.
Or in the case AT&T wins and pulls out a clean sweep. These are the tests to determine which IPs or characters from those IPs really deserve whole new shows.

They're still burning off all the remains from before the court ruling which I expect will be done by the time HBO Max gets here. There's still more Dorothy to deal with as well. New Looney Tunes only finished up last month. The Season 4 of Tom and Jerry is currently airing on the Boomerang channel as well. If YDD is on the UK Boomerang, it'll probably be burned off on the American one soon.
I held my tongue to nice and first, but it's been a year since they won the court ruling and the fact that they STILL aren't done cleaning the slate just goes to show you just how far behind CN was allowed to be. No way this policy survives in the new era.
So the end credits to "Yabba Dabba Dinosaurs" has been posted online, and it has the new Hanna-Barbera ending logo at the end (as also seen on the Jetsons/WWE crossover movie and the "Wacky Races" reboot), yet they still don't use it on anything Scooby-Doo -related. I guess Warner Bros. officially considers Scooby-Doo to be no longer part of the Hanna-Barbera family, in most cases...
Even if some newer Scooby-Doo productions they may reference other H-B shows, like an episode of "Scooby-Doo and Guess Who?" featuring Magilla Gorilla and Mr. Peebles...
