We're Goin' Way Out (That's Where The Fun Is)*

Today is Joseph Barbera's 95th birthday. With his partner, William Hanna, he created an unbelievable array of characters. We all know The Flintstones and the Jetsons, but there was so much more. Because we're obsessive about these things, here's a list of some of the more obscure: Top Cat, Wally Gator, Lippy The Lion, Touche Turtle, Secret Squirrel, Dastardly & Muttley, Hong Kong Phooey, Hillbilly Bears, Grape Ape, Augie Doggie and Doggie Daddy, Peter Potamus, Punkin Puss & Mush Mouse, Pixie & Dixie, and Mr. Jinks. Whew! Happy birthday, Joe!

Thanks to Cartoon-a-rama for the list.

*Sung by alien rock group The Way-Outs on the Flintstones episode "Masquerade Party".
