William Hanna is DEAD! )-:
Okay, here're the answers:
How many did you spot? Did you spot any others? Did you recognise Dino?
I was about to pen this cartoon without knowing what Bill Hanna even looked like - I couldn't find any pictures of him on the internet, so I figured I might as well depict him in the image of a combination of George Jetson and Yogi Bear, when a fortuitous coincidence occurred: I had recorded "Captain Planet and the Planeteers" off Cartoon Network for a friend of mine who loves every part that show (except for Ma-Ti with the power of Heart, he sucks), although I didn't watch it myself - it's just too moralistic for the likes of me. Anyway, I was rewinding the tape when I checked to see how far I had rewound, when what should have interrupted Captain Planet, but Cartoon Network's tribute to Bill Hanna, complete with what appeared to be a self caricature of the man himself! Oh, joy! I hit freeze-frame and put pen to paper.
Maybe we'd all be better off if I hadn't...
