Hanna-Barbera - The Beginning

Bill Hanna began his workin' years at a California engineering firm and it wasn't until 1930 that he decided to take a job in cartooning. And despite having a flair for drawing in high school, Joe Barbera started his career as an accountant. It wasn't long before he turned to cartooning as a profession as well.

Hanna-Barbera - Big Breaks

In 1937, both Bill Hanna and Joe Barbera joined the team of cartoonists at MGM studios in Hollywood, where they were paired up to work on a little cartoon about a cat and mouse duo called Tom and Jerry. Hanna and Barbera went on to create over 100 Tom and Jerry cartoons and continued on as a drawing/producing team for the rest of their careers.

Hanna-Barbera - Makes the Move

Faced with MGM studios shutting down their animation department in 1957, Hanna and Barbera decided to strike out on their own and created Hanna-Barbera Productions that same year.

Well, there was the immunodeficiency explosion of the late 1980's, mostly attributed to gay men. But I don't see how a gay person would have to have a negative effect in order for people to think something about their lifestyle is wrong.

    So I decided to make a forum post on the different types of people you'll probably find on Kidzworld. Leave a comment or like if you fit any of the different types of description! 1. The Forum Kids - These are the kids that you'd find mostly residing and posting in the forum's and there usually the debatable type. If you look at their number of forum posts it easily exceeds 1000. They're rarely in chat but they'll be in there once in a while. 2. The Chatterboxes (this is me)- These are the kid that reside mainly in the chat room. This can also be split into the different types of kids you'd find in the chat room. A. The non-english speakers- Who no matter how many times you'd tell to keep the language in English, they won't listen. B. The online daters- These kids see chat as an opportunity to find the true love of their lives. They'll take it to the PM's C. The broken English kid - This is the kid who speaks in English but it's hard to make out what they are trying to say. There usually the nicest people tbh. D. The Observer's (me)- The kid who would just observe chat, rarely contribute but only when they feel is necessary. They can be loud when their speaking to a close friend. E. The multiple account holder- They are constantly changing accounts and you'd start to forget who they even are anymore. F. The Rebellion's- The kids who are constantly frozen or kicked out of chat for their inappropriate behavior. They're usually the most funniest people. And finally 3. The Ancients- These are the kids who have been using this site for quite a few years now and usually find themselves looking back at their past on Kidzworld and feeling saddened by the change.
