HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

Here's a cartoon title card-style piece of Hanna-Barbera's J. EVIL SCIENTIST, his wife GOONDA and their son JUNIOR. Known as MR. and MRS. J. EVIL SCIENTIST, the spooky-fun family originally appeared in a 1961 SNAGGLEPUSS cartoon! The terrifying trio went on to star in their own comic book series published by Gold Key. I did this piece for Steve Banes, who is the Art Director at East West DVD of Brooklyn, NY and North Hollywood, CA. Steve's a big fan of Hanna-Barbera and Mr. and Mrs. J. Evil Scientist! I do quite a few DVD cartoon cover illustrations for Steve and East West. I appreciate all of the work, Steve! HAPPY HALLOWEEN EVERYBODY!

Patrick,

Fantastic reference which you made, invloving the monsterous Evil Scientist family on your blog!
Seeing this reference, it came on my mind, a dialogue between Mrs. Evil Scientist and his son Junior, on the final scene from the Snooper & Blabber episode Big Diaper Caper:
"Junior, how many times I've said you to don't let your pets on loose at home?"
And the baby (who's a real monster project [literally]):
"GWAH-GWAH!"

Only a detail: the monsterous Evil Scientist family appeared originally not on this Snagglepuss episode (Fraidy Cat Lion), and yes on that Snooper & Blabber episode which I quoted above (Big Diaper Caper, from 1959).
