‘B.C.’ cartoonist Johnny Hart dies at storyboard

ALBANY, N.Y. - For millions of comic strip readers, the prehistoric era was a hoot: Cavemen played baseball, ants went to school, birds rode on the back of turtles and snakes made quips.

All of it was thanks to cartoonist Johnny Hart, who died Saturday at age 76 while working at his home in the nearby hamlet of Nineveh. “He had a stroke,” his wife, Bobby, said Sunday. “He died at his storyboard.”

B.C. hehehe.. one of my favorite strips. I even had a videogame based on it for the Commodore 64. He also writes the Wizard of Id, if you didn't know....

Thanks for the all laughs, Mr. Hart. You've made the whole world smile everyday, specially this guy in the Philippines.
