Joseph "Joe" Barbera was an animator, director, and producer. After directing several theatrical shorts for MGM's Tom and Jerry, with William Hanna, they went onto established their own animation studio, Hanna-Barbera, creating such well-known household cartoon characters and shows of the 20th century, such as Yogi Bear, Huckleberry Hound, The Flintstones, Jonny Quest, and Scooby-Doo, Where Are You!.
He directed the first two series of Scooby-Doo, before stepping down, while continuing to produce all productions involving the Scooby-Doo character until his death at 95 on December 18, 2006, due to natural causes.

- Hanna and Barbera are not credited for having involvement for the first direct-to-video film, Scooby-Doo on Zombie Island. Instead, they are given sole credit for creating the characters, while half true, their company only animated them; their true creators were Joe Ruby and Ken Spears. In fact, Hanna himself said (via archive footage) on the Mystery Inc. Yearbook featurette (passed around a few of the DVDs in the early to mid 2000s) that it was a team effort. Later films would say "Based on Characters Created By Hanna-Barbera Productions".
