Scooby Doo, Where Are You?

Iwao Takamoto is the latest bit of my childhood to pass into eternity. Takamoto, in case the name is unfamiliar, was the creator of none other than Scooby Doo, everyone's favorite crime solving cartoon dog.... Though I suppose there weren't that many of them.

As the Washington Post put it in its Appreciation: Scooby Doo was "a show in which nobody is as smart as unsupervised young detectives who never go to school, have no parents, no zits and no sex drive! And a van!"

Ah, to be innocent again!
