As soon as I heard that Joe Barbera had died at age 95, I called my friend Mark Evanier because I knew he’d have a lot to say about Barbera, half of the legendary animation team Hanna-Barbera, who gave the world The Flintstones, Scooby-Doo, Tom and Jerry, The Jetsons, Yogi Bear, Huckleberry Hound, and many more. Mark was involved in several H-B projects and has been highlighting their work for several days, since word broke that Barbera was sick.

I had Mark on my show to talk about Barbera’s work and legacy, and about those ever-repeating backgrounds that were always part of H-B cartoons, like Quick Draw McGraw running by the same rock and tree over and over again.
