Joe Barbera

Joe Barbera's death has inspired a lot of amazing tributes and reminiscences around the WWW. Amid Amidi at Cartoon Brew has a great round-up, as does Mark Evanier at POV Online.

Google Video has the Archive of American Television's seven-part interview with Barbera, conducted in 1997 by Leonard Maltin.

One funny thing about Joe Barbera is that one of his last cartoons, as well as Bill Hanna's, were individual efforts to conduct their own cartoon pilots as part of the World Premiere Toons Show, initiated by Fred Seibert as part of the Hanna-Barbera renaissance of the 1990's.
