In Memoriam: Joseph Barbera


The Times reports this morning on the passing yesterday of Joseph Barbera, 95, who with William Hanna created some of the world’s most enduring cartoon characters, including Tom and Jerry, The Flintstones, The Jetsons, and Yogi Bear. The article also mentions Barbera’s relunctance to discuss his work, as he simply believed “the way to appreciate them is to see them.”

Here again are the famous intros to The Flintsones, The Jetsons, and Yogi Bear, and—because parody is the most sincere form of flattery—clips from The Simpsons and Family Guy.
