    R.I.P. Mr. Barbera.

    For you young'ns, Barbera had a hand in creating Tom and Jerry, Yogi Bear, Scooby Doo, Huckleberry Hound, Quick Draw McGraw, and many others (including the dog in my avatar).

    I didn't know he was still alive.

    Great great man, his cartoons (along with William Hanna) kept me entertained for many many hours.

    Those cartoons were brilliant and certain beat any of the crap shown these days on Cartoon Network.

    That sucks..

    I'm still a great fan of Tom and Jerry and the flintstones..

    Don't get me wrong.. i don't have posters of Fred flintstone hanging in my bedroom, nor do i wear tom and jerry underwear (that would be weird); but if i happen to be flipping through the channels and see them playing, i will pause at that channel for a couple of minute and crack a laugh or two.. :ha:

    Now that I think of it, I guess that doesn't make me a great fan does it..?
    i take it back...

    RIP anyway..

    not wrong.. but i'm sure women don't last in that bedroom so long.
    Especially after the jeans drop to the ground.
