Joseph Barbera, 1911-2006

Thinking about it now, Hanna-Barbera cartoons had a greater influence on my childhood than I realize, telling me it was okay to be thieving, gluttonous bear-like person.

My personal issues aside, don't remember him for the Smurfs and ScoobyDoo which are only popular because they sucked so much - instead remember him for Yogi, Quickdraw McGraw and The Jetsons.

At any rate, one of the creators of those wacky childhood cartoons - precursors to Family Guy and Ren & Stimpy is dead. Enjoy your pic-a-nic basket...
