Exit ... Stage Left
December 19, 2006

I sketched this, this morning after reading that Joseph Barbera died Monday. Co-creator of such time-honoured cartoon classics as Tom and Jerry, Huckleberry Hound, Yogi Bear and Scooby Doo, he was absolutely instrumental in bringing the art of animation to television.

He will be missed ... we're grateful that he didn't go into banking, but that he shaped so many of our childhoods instead.

Exit ... stage left.

Awwww, now I am sad. And yet filled with a comfort of those moments remembered, just from his creativeness.
Awesome sketch endy!

Great sketch but most of all a wonderful tribute to someone I, as a child, had no idea had such creativity because it was so real to me...I hate the new cartoons now and I'm glad they do the "retro" stuff. Boomerang, right? I watched Huckleberry Hound and a few others today while enjoying the snowfall.
