I was lucky enough to spend some time with JOE BARBERA in his office some years back. He was still passionate about his animation and excited about a recent mention of THE JETSONS in an article about technology. I gave him a copy of the MAD MONSTER PARTY soundtrack CD and he loved it. He remembered RANKIN/BASS with fondness and in fact, STEVE NAKAGAWA worked for both studios. I will never forget meeting BILL & JOE and their animation will live on forever!
