Hanging with Mr. Barbera

I've been working in the same building with an animation legend for four years, but just finally got a chance to talk to him and get a picture. Joe Barbera (or Mr. B, as we call him at the studio) turned 95 last week. He is 1/2 responsible (being 1/2 of the 'Hanna-Barbera' partnership) for classics such as: Tom and Jerry, The Flintstones, The Jetsons, and Scooby-Doo, among many others. He still comes in to work a few times a week these days. That's pretty inspiring!
