R.I.P. Scooby-Doo Creator

Animator Iwao Takamoto, who's worked with Disney and Hanna-Barbera on such cartoons as Peter Pan, The Jetsons, Cinderella, 101 Dalmatians and The Flintstones, passed away yesterday. Takamoto is probably best known for creating Scooby-Doo, an enduring series destined to keep his spirit alive. Of course, it'll probably turn out that it's not actually his spirit that's hanging around but really Old Man Grimley the banker in disguise. Damn those meddling kids.
