My fucking point, not that you'll bother with my reply, is Spade flagged him up ages ago and given Spade's history on the DDP,  still nobody picked him.

 

My message is pay attention to what Spade says.

Al Jaffee is 98. Al Jaffee has also just relaunched his official website and doesn't look like he's going anywhere soon. ...

 

Turned 99 a few weeks back, and somehow looks even better: 

I don't suspect he'll fold anytime soon... maybe.

Itchy and Scratchy is the best version of Tom and Jerry, and I’ll fight anyone who disagrees with me.

Oh wow, a rare occasion where I get a unique pick, I think it's only my 4th ever. I chose him after reading his autobiography a few years back, he was one of the very few westerners to be living in Prague through the communist period.

Actually Munro won in 1961 not 1981

Last living pre-war Disney animator Ruthie Thompson has turned 110. Her health does not seem to have declined.

Co-creator of Scooby-Doo and  Dynomutt Dog Wonder, Joe Ruby reportedly dead aged 87: https://www.animationscoop.com/joe-ruby-1933-2020/

If he co created Scooby Doo he ranks alongside the likes of Shakespeare and Dickens as a creative genius IMO !
