Forthcoming exhibition, Animated Adventures

I was looking for references to Aardman Animations (they of Wallace & Gromit fame) in anticipation of the Animated Adventures exhibition we are hosting next year, and was really gutted to come across this BBC article on the death of Joseph Barbera. Peter Lord from Aardman talks about Barbera’s influence in the piece.

Hanna-Barbera were the creators of my childhood (and adult if I’m honest) favourites including The Flintstones, Scooby Doo (before Scrappy, obviously), Top Cat and, my absolute fave, Tom & Jerry.

Wikipedia pretty well covers their work, with some good links to other HB sites.
