RIP Iwao Takamoto

Iwao Takamoto, the artist responsible for creating Scooby Doo, died yesterday at the age of 81.

Scooby Doo
was one of the staples of my childhood - strangely enough, in this upcoming Friday's Horror Roundtable I'll explain why the show actually meant a lot to me - so rest in piece, Mr. Takamoto; a few scribbles of your pencil made the world a more interesting, Scooberiffic place.

Everybody eat some Scooby Snacks in his honor for lunch!
