Ball point pen on the morning newsprint

Ted Key, creator of Hazel, Mr. Peabody and Sherman cartoon characters passed away at age 95. His cartoons ran in the Saturday Evening Post and Collier's before I was born, but I spent hours of my youth watching Hazel in syndication and Mr. Peabody and Sherman on The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show.

    I just really enjoy seeing who you profile each day--what a wonderful concept. We must be somewhere around the same age--I smiled, thinking of watching some of those same shows myself as a child. I'd forgotten all about Hazel, actually! Sounds like Mr Key lived a good long life.
