A Cast of Friends
Taylor Publishing Company, Lanham, MD, U.S.A. 1996 - Inscribed "Congratulations! / From / (signed) Bill Hanna" on back of half title page in black ink. Born in Melrose, New Mexico, on July 14, 1910, Hanna and his partner, Joseph Barbera created such beloved cartoon characters as Tom and Jerry, The Flintstones, The Jetsons, Yogi Bear, Huckleberry Hound and Scooby-Doo. Hanna, a trained engineer, began his animation career during the Depression when he took an ink and paint position at Harman-Ising Studios. In 1937, Hanna was hired by MGM, where he met Barbera and the two began a creative partnership that lasted over 60 years. There Hanna and Barbera broke new ground by mixing animation and live-action pitting Tom and Jerry with Gene Kelly in ANCHORS AWEIGH and INVITATION TO DANCE and with Esther Williams in DANGEROUS WHEN WET. The TOM AND JERRY shorts received seven Academy Awards. When MGM closed its cartoon division in 1957, Hanna and Barbera founded their own studio, Hanna-Barbera Studios, and went on to produce more than 3,000 animated half-hour television shows. Just three years after founding their studio, the pair¿s HUCKLEBERRY HOUND won the first Emmy Award ever given to an animated series and launched the first animated primetime show, THE FLINTSTONES.
