A Happy 94th Birthday Joe !
Some decades ago, when major studios were seriousy thinking of dumping animation altogether to concentrate on theme parks and merchandising-- flying in the face of Walt's dictum (paraphrased):
"Animation built it all; it all started with a mouse";
... your good self, Bill Hanna and a very few other visionary TV cognicenti kept the JOY of world animation alive and kicking.
In the 1990's I had the good fortune to thank you personally, Joe for this herculean task; and now again in YOUR '90's, on behalf of all we animators: THANK YOU.
Many more Happy Birthdays to you.
