JOE BARBERA - 1911-2006

JOE BARBERA passed away today from natural causes. He was 95. THANKS for all of the great cartoon fun, Mr. Barbera! The above photo is from the front page of THE HANNA-BARBERA EXPOSURE SHEET, the Hanna-Barbera studio's newsletter. The July 1967 newsletter was announcing the studio's 10th anniversary. I think we all feel a little like the above FRED FLINTSTONE does. Check my December 7 posting "REAL TV CARTOON PRODUCERS!" about BILL HANNA and JOE BARBERA. Be sure to click on the images to enlarge.

Nice caricature of Joe over at the Cartoon Brew post.

Patrick Owsley,

Seeing this sad Fred Flintstone that you drew, it seems that he was animated by the ex-Disney disciple, George Nicholas.

Still seeing this sad Fred Flintstone that you drew, it seems that I'm listening on my mind, the song I started a joke, which The Bee Gees recorded for Phonogram (Universal Music)/Polydor (which released this single in the whole world [minus in the USA, where the single was released by Atlantic Records/Warner Music]) in 1968.
