Today in Comics History: Evil McBaddy* is born

Panels from The Funtastic World of Hanna-Barbera #3 [Flintstones Visit the Laff-a-Lympics] (Summer 1978), script by Mark Evanier; art by Scott Shaw!; Dan Spiegle, Frank Smith, Owen Fitzgerald, Tony Strobl, Pete Alvarado, Paul Norris and Joe Prince; colors by Carl Gafford; letters by D. Bruce Berry

Captain Caveman? Scooby-Doo? Dynomutt?!? Say, just what the Sam Scratch is goin' on here anyway? Why, it's nothing less than Crisis on Hanna-Barbera Earths! (Check out some more panels from this modern classic on convoluted continuity by clickin' this link!)

*Technically, he's called Mr. Mastermind in the comic, but I'd like to think his civilian name is Evil McBaddy.
