Rocky and Bullwinkle Creator Alex Anderson Dead at 90

Alex Anderson, the once-forgotten man who created the original Rocky and Bullwinkle cartoon characters in the 1950s, has died in California at age 90. A number of complete Rocky and Bullwinkle cartoons are available here.

His New York Times obituary describes how Mr. Anderson sought and received legal remedy after a 1991 documentary about producer Jay Ward made no mention of Anderson's role in creating the popular cartoon about a flying squirrel and a moose.

In a fascinating generational note, the obit mentions that Mr. Anderson, like countless other giants in American broadcasting history, served "in Navy intelligence during World War II."
