The animator of British cartoons has died aged 91.

He did animations for Roobarb and Henry's Cat.

RIP

Rather ironic that Richard Briers who was the voice in Rhubarb passed away only a few days ago Sad

I think 'coincidental' is the appropriate word, Ruddles, rather than 'ironic' which is a word overused and misunderstood, like 'literally'.

Sorry, I'm being pedantic, but...

Quite Schiz - I did actually think the same thing myself after posting but as I've been away for a couple of days I didn't have chance to edit it Smile

As with many of the names featured in this area of the forum you'll find tributes on the weekly Radio 4 programme Last Word. This week's edition included Bob Godfrey. Many old editions are available to listen again.
