Review of An Interview with Joe Barbera

I love behind-the-scenes pieces. They are some of the most interesting things, and I've been a big enough fan of the cartoons that I can associate some of the stuff that was talked about.

This piece works very well because of the access to not only Barbera, but to all the footage of the cartoons, so it wasn't just a dry interview. It's much different, but it reminds me of those behind-the-scenes DVD extras at how they made Star Wars or The Matrix. Now that I think about it, it might be even better to hear those, than see them, as I did.

This piece could air at Babera's death -- I hope that's a long way off, but it is inevitable. Otherwise, it's just a fun interview, and it could go anywhere you want to inject a little lightness, a little fun.
