Hanna-Barbera. Together they produced cartoons such as Tom 
and Jerry, The Huckleberry Hound Show, The Flintstones, The 
Jetsons, and Scooby-Doo. Also this week we remember this week

       JOE BARBERA, FLINTSTONES CREATOR, DEAD AT 95 

Joe Barbera, half of the creative team that created Tom and 
Jerry, Huckleberry Hound, the Flintstones and the Jetsons, 
died Dec. 18. He was 95. "Joe Barbera truly was an animation 
and television legend," said the Warner Brothers chairman and 
CEO, Barry Meyer. "From the Stone Age to the Space Age and 
from primetime to Saturday mornings, syndication and cable,  
the characters he created with his late partner, William 
Hanna, are not only animated superstars, but also a very 
beloved part of American pop culture." Barbera started out in 
banking, but he switched careers when Colliers magazine 
published his cartoons. Hanna and Barbera met as animators for 
MGM, where they created Tom and Jerry, the cartoon cat and 
mouse who also appeared in musicals with Gene Kelly and Esther 
Williams. When MGM eliminated its animation department in the 
1950s, and Hanna and Barbera former Hanna-Barbera Studios and 
decided to create TV cartoons. Hanna died in 1991.

           KENNY DAVERN, JAZZ MUSICIAN, DEAD AT 71 

Jazz musician Kenny Davern died December 18 of a heart attack 
at the age of 71. The jazz clarinetist and soprano saxophonist 
was an acclaimed musician in the world of traditional jazz and 
swing, The Washington Post reported. Davern was particularly 
known for his lyrical and expressive clarinet style. "A 
chilling upper register, a rounded, woody tone and a hint of 
Pee Wee Russell's rasp," jazz critic W. Royal Stokes wrote of 
Davern. "If you ask 10 people what jazz music is, you might as 
well ask them what God looks like: You'll get 10 different 
answers," Davern once said. "There's no defining jazz. It's a 
meaningless term." He is survived by his wife of 36 years, 
Elsa Green Davern, two stepchildren, and four grandchildren.
