Joe Barbera . . .

. . . might mean nothing to you. Knowing that he is half of the team of Hanna-Barbera might ring a bell. Joe Barbera died today at the grand old age of 95. The partners, who teamed up while working at MGM in the 1930s, then went on to a whole new realm of success in the 1960s with a witty series of animated TV comedies, including The Flintstones, The Jetsons , Yogi Bear, Scooby-Doo and Huckleberry Hound and Friends.
