Goodbye, Joe!

"Caaaaptaaaain Caaaaavemaaaan!"    Joseph Barbera (left) with his animation partner William Hanna

Joseph Barbera, one half of the great cartoon double act Hanna Barbera, has died aged 95.

Among the great shows created by the Americans were
Captain Caveman, Tom and Jerry, Scooby Doo, Yogi Bear,
The Smurfs, The Jetsons and Wacky Races - featuring the indomitable Dick Dastardly and Muttley!

"Thooomaaaass!!!"  "Rrraaaagggyy!"  "I'm smarter than the average bear!!!"

"Die Internationaaaaaale!"  "Meet George Jetson ..."  "Muttley!" "Hee hee hee hee!!!"

William Hanna and Joseph Barbera also dreamt up The Flintstones and Top Cat ...


... Yes he's a chief, he's a king, but above everything,
He's the most tip top, Top Cat!

Jospeh Barbera (1911-2006)
