From Paul Dini

Earl Kress was one of the first professionals I met in animation, and few writers were as knowledgeable about cartoons or created them as well as he did. I had the pleasure of working with Earl on a number of occasions, and more than that, I had the pleasure of knowing him personally. The photo here shows Earl and a number of our best friends at an evening last year with the great Frank Ferrante. It was a wonderful night. Earl, Misty and I drove to the show together and on the way Earl told many stories about our early days at Filmation, our later years at Warners and just about everything else. I’ll miss his encyclopedic knowledge of Hanna-Barbera cartoons, his wild sense of humor, and of course, the man himself. Rest well, Earl.
