Ed Benedict, 1912-2006

Ed Benedict was a very, very talented animator and animation designer. His initial design work on The Flintstones pushed the style so much it wasn't even allowed on air without being watered down, and his layouts for Tex Avery are truly legendary.

A few months back, John Kricfalusi wrote a piece on Ed and just a little of his work.

Sadly, Ed passed away this Monday. Cartoon Brew have a nice obituary, with more links.

[EDIT: Anybody reading the comments below will find out how comprehensively I failed in finding an image of Ed. if anybody can send me one, I'd very much appreciate it. Thanks.]
