'Family Circus' creator Bil Keane dies at 89

Bil Keane of the comic strip "Family Circus" has passed away at 89. You all, I am sure, have read his comics for many years so he certainly made every one of us smile.

The Disney connection here, for those of you that do not know it is that Bil Keane was the father of Glen Keane. Glen Keane as most know, is an amazing Disney animator responsbile for many of our most beloved Disney characters...Ariel, Aladdin, Tarzan, Beast, Pocahontas, etc.

For those of you who read the Family Circus comic, the character 'Billy' is modelled after Glen Keane.
