Hey Rocky, watch me pull a rabbit out of my hat!

Quote:
Chris Hayward, an Emmy-winning television writer who helped develop the bumbling animated Canadian Mountie Dudley Do-Right and other offbeat characters for the Rocky and Bullwinkle TV show, has died. He was 81.

...

Hayward contributed satire, wordplay and puns for "Rocky and His Friends," a witty cartoon that built a large adult following. The show debuted on ABC in 1959 and was renamed "The Bullwinkle Show" when it moved to NBC in 1961.

Besides its titular flying squirrel and moose, the hit show featured segments including Mr. Peabody, a time-traveling dog with a boy companion, and Dudley, a klutzy hero always in pursuit of his nemesis Snidely Whiplash.

...

With partner Allan Burns, Hayward later helped create "The Munsters," and in 1968 the pair received an Emmy for their work on the CBS sitcom "He & She."

Born in Bayonne, New Jersey, Hayward moved to Los Angeles at age 17. He took a night class in scriptwriting at a local high school and went into television in the 1950s. He worked on "Crusader Rabbit," the first cartoon show created specifically for television, as well as "Get Smart," "My Mother the Car" and "Barney Miller."
RIP

Mr. Peabody taught me pretty much everything I know.

"Which is worse, ignorance or indifference?"

"I don't know, and I don't care."

Oh Christ on a stick, I met mr Barbera in 1995 when my band played the Hanna Barbera Chrisrtmas party down in Santa Monica. He was a really kind, gracious dude, funny as hell too. I like him and his wife a lot.

It should be illegal for cool people to die.
