Exit...Stage Left

For anyone who grew up during the last half century, the name Hanna-Barbera still brings to mind the joys of being a child. The cartoons produced by the duo of Bill Hanna and Joe Barbera literally brought laughter to millions and helped inspire generations of cartoonists and artists. I myself grew up watching reruns of such classics as The Flintstones and Yogi Bear. And though I may have become an adult, my love for cartoons hasn't diminished and indeed probably never will.

Joe Barbera, who passed away yesterday at the age of 95, helped keep the kid in me alive.

Thanks, Joe. You will be missed.
