    BC cartoonist dies while drawing

    Cartoonist Johnny Hart, who won awards and acclaim for creating the BC comic strip, has died at the age of 76. BC, which depicts a world populated by cavemen and dinosaurs, first appeared in 1958 and eventually reached more than 100 million people.
    Mr Hart also co-created The Wizard of Id, the story of a run-down kingdom ruled by a tyrannical monarch.
    Mr Hart's wife, Bobby, said he died of a stroke on Saturday while working at his New York home.
    "He died at his storyboard," she told the Associated Press.
    Richard Newcombe, the founder and president of Creators Syndicate, which syndicates both BC and The Wizard of Id, said both cartoons would continue.
    Family members have been helping produce the strips for years, and they have an extensive computer archive of drawings to work with, he told AP.
    Mr Hart won numerous awards for his work, including the National Cartoonist Society's prestigious Reuben Award twice for Cartoonist of the Year.
    In his later year, Mr Hart's Christianity began to play a more prominent role in his cartoons, courting some controversy.

        Indeed very sad
        Good morning, son
        In twenty years from now
        Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
        And I can tell you 'bout today
        And how I picked you up and everything changed
        It was pain
        Sunny days and rain
        I knew you'd feel the same things...

          Very sad to hear. Many know that the mascot at UC Irvine is the Anteater, but most people don't realize that it is because of Peter the Anteater in the B.C. comic strip that the name was chosen. UCI's mascot is named Peter in honor.

            I was really sad to hear this. I have grown up reading BC. and always admired the cartoonist for placing his faith so vividly in the strip. It was a good strip.....he'll be missed.

              Oh, that is so sad, but somehow appropriate that he died doing what he loved.
              She did it!

                  He grew up in Endicott New York (same as my wife)

                  I'm a big fan of his and have eaten at a place called "Hurricane Riley's", a restaurant situated below one of his early apartments where he created many of his cartoons.

                  He'll be missed.
