Rest in peace, Mr. Barbera...and thanks!

Born into a Catholic family in New York's Little Italy in 1911, Joe Barbera, who co-founded the Academy Award-winning Hanna-Barbera cartoon powerhouse, has died at his Studio City, California home. The BBC reports Joe Barbera, who made up one half of the team behind such cartoon classics as The Flintstones, Yogi Bear, Scooby-Doo and Huckleberry Hound, died yesterday of natural causes at home with his wife, Sheila, at his side.

Here's the rest of the story. Please pray for his soul. Thanks!
