ED BENEDICT is one of my favorite designers of all time! Unfortunately he passed away this past Monday 08-28-06 at age 94. Ed designed such HANNA-BARBERA classics as YOGI BEAR, THE FLINTSTONES, LIPPY THE LION, HUCKLEBERRY HOUND and even the first H-B Show RUFF & READY! He also did some wonderful commercial designs as seen here and was currently working on a project with my friend DAVID SCHEVE of www.thedeeparchives.com. ED will be missed by many in the animation community!
