    Joseph Barbera Dies

    I love all the old Hannah-Barbera cartoons, shame now with him gone they're both dead. Great men. RIP.

    That's rather sad. He was old though. Great cartoons.

    Used to love Space Ghost, Josie and the Pussycats and Wacky Races as a kid.

    RIP.

    I could watch Wacky Races for hours on end, truly a classic cartoon. I loved Quickdraw McGraw aswell.

    RIP, I'm a few years too young to have seen much of his work but I still remember Wacky Races clear as day. A sad loss.

    Tom & Jerry alongside Tex Avery's stuff are some of my favourite pieces of American animation (just above Bruce Timm’s work on Batman). However, the Peter Engel school of repetition which Hanna-Barbera created seemingly put back animation on American TV by at least twenty old years and lead to the perceived opinion that cartoons are for babies and are intrinsically ****e once puberty has began.

    Though saying that Jonny Quest and Space Ghost were rather good, RIP.

    He made Jonny Quest?! The guy was utterly gun then.

    All i heard on the radio was Scooby Doo/Flintstones/Jetsons which are all pretty average.
