Joseph Barbera died today of natural causes at 12:15pm at his home in Studio City. He was 95.
I have had the privelege of working at the same building as he did for about 5 years. (yes, he did still come into work!) I didn't have a lot of contact with him, but the handful of times I did speak with him, I'll always remember.
We are still producing spin-off shows based on the characters he created many decades ago. This year's variety is called "Shaggy and Scooby-Doo Get A Clue".
GO HERE to view a post I wrote about him in April.
