We bet there’s no single adult who never watched the famous Scooby Doo cartoon series when he was a child.
The unfortunate news is that one of the creators of the iconic cartoon, Charles Kenneth Spears has died at the age of 82. His death comes less than three months after his animation partner, Joe Ruby, also passed away.
According to American gossip site TMZ, Spears reportedly died on Friday after complications related to dementia.
His son, Kevin noted that Ken will forever be remembered for his wit, story-telling, loyalty to family, and strong work ethic.
Kevin said, “Ken has not only made a lasting impression on his family, but he has touched the lives of many as the co-creator of ‘Scooby-Doo.’ Ken has been a role model for us throughout his life, and he will continue to live on in our hearts.”
Scooby aired until 1976, but there have been a lot of spin-offs, reboots, and movies.
