William "Bill" Hanna was an American animator, director, and producer. After directing several theatrical shorts for MGM's Tom and Jerry, with Joseph Barbera, they went onto established their own animation studio, Hanna-Barbera, creating such well-known household cartoon characters of the 20th century, such as Yogi Bear, Huckleberry Hound, the Flintstones, Jonny Quest, and Scooby-Doo.

He directed the first two series of Scooby-Doo, before stepping down, while continuing to produce all productions involving the Scooby-Doo character until his death at 90 on March 22, 2001, due to esophageal cancer. The direct-to-video film Scooby-Doo and the Cyber Chase was dedicated to him. After this, the company was fully absorbed into Warner Bros. Animation.
