Guess whose birthday it is? Massimo Mattioli!

He turns 67 today. Happy birthday to the cartoonist who anticipated "Itchy & Scratchy" by a good decade (but perhaps not "Tom and Jerry"....)

Speaking of Hanna-Barbara, while we're at it, check out this very prehistoric FLINTSTONES test reel, a prototype Flintstones, with different character designs and voices!

Well now, ain't that the cat's meow (See it, the cat's meow? It's spread all over the wall behind him!!)

I'd like to see more of this man's comics. Love the line-work. Like the inside of the little mouse, too!

Yeah, I love this stuff. Let's go to Italy and find some of this stuff, which is heavy on the marinara sauce, eh?
