Legendary animation artist Ed Benedict passed away Monday at age 94. He was the designer of most of Hanna-Barbera’s early stars including Yogi Bear, The Flintstones, Huckleberry Hound and Quick Draw McGraw. He was also an important part of my book CARTOON MODERN, which unfortunately I wasn’t able to show him before he left us. There’s a lot more about Ed at Cartoon Brew.
If you have memories of Ed or were inspired by his work, please share in the comments below and I’ll try to forward it to his family.
