'Scooby-Doo,' 'Flintstones' Creator Joseph Barbera Dies at 95
The pair's first collaboration was entitled "Puss Gets The Boot," which became the pilot for Tom & Jerry. Hanna and Barbera picked up seven Oscars for their "Tom & Jerry" cartoons. The acclaimed animators then created one of the first independent animation studios to produce TV series in 1957 and the hits kept coming with The Huckleberry Hound Show and Quick Draw McGraw.
But the duo landed one of their most beloved shows in 1960 when "The Flintstones" debuted - the first animated series to air in primetime. The show, about a stone age community, ran for six years and went on to become the top-ranking animated program.
Other hits for Barbera and his partner included Top Cat, Scooby-Doo and The Smurfs, which earned the pair two Daytime Emmy Awards in 1982 and in 1983 for Outstanding Children's Entertainment Series and a Humanitas Award in 1987.
