There goes another icon of my yoof

Joe Barbera has died aged 95. I wonder how many re-runs he saw over the years? That man is responsible for a huge number of my favourite TV memories from childhood (and now with Boomerang, as an immature adult):

  • Tom and Jerry
  • The Flintstones
  • Scooby Doo
  • The Huckleberry Hound Show
  • The Yogi Bear Show
  • Quick Draw McGraw
  • Top Cat
  • Wacky Races
  • Banana Splits

And not forgetting the greatest cartoon ever: Hong Kong Phooey! De de de de de de daaaa.
