    (1937-December 18, 2001)
    William Hanna (July 14, 1910-December 18, 2001), Born Melrose, NM
    Joseph Barbera (March 24, 1911-December 18, 2006), Born Manhattan, NY
    Joined Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer to establish their animation department (1937)

    Established Hanna-Barbera Productions to produce Saturday morning TV network cartoons (1957)
    Produced 3,500 half-hour animated episodes
    Created Yogi Bear, Huckleberry Hound, Quick Draw McGraw, Fred Flintstone, George Jetson, Scooby-Doo, etc.
    Their cartoons were sub par to the quality of Disney or Warner Bros.
    Their style was rather cheap, flat and tended to be cheesy.
    They would overdo it on the simplistic plots, dialogue and settings just to hold down costs.
    Barbera had a gambling problem.
    They created a number of modern successors to Mickey Mouse that can be enjoyed by a new generation of fans.
    Scooby-Doo especially has become something of a cult character in recent years.
    They basically kept animation viable before the movie 'Who Framed Roger Rabbit?' essentially renewed popular interest in animation.
