What: characters are in people’s hearts,” he said. “It’s not that my drawings are so magnificent — they’re nice paintings and they do capture the spirit of those cartoons ... but it’s the public’s memory of their happy childhood moments.”
Over the course of his career, Campbell worked with major studios, including Hanna-Barbera, Disney and Nickelodeon.
Some of the shows he’s helped create or otherwise worked on: “ScoobyDoo,” “The Jetsons,”
“The Smurfs,” “The Flintstones,” “Rugrats,” “Rocket Power,” “The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh” and “Ed Edd n Eddy.”
Campbell said he’s only recently begun to realize the universal recognizability of his drawings: “Scooby-Doo is every bit as popular as Mickey Mouse,” he said.
