Top 10 Greatest Animators of All Time
The Top Ten
Walt has like every right to be on this list. His animation characters made everybody's childhood worth while and to be honest, I still daydream about some of them. To me, he's a great person and will never be forgotten in the lives of a lot of people
Still got the Aladdin lunch pail. Am grateful the maestro Walter Elias Disney for introducing animation rich in content across enlightening ages. Despite modes of video changing the classics have heart to win one back again, and where no longer exists they are still true from other modern day animators. Should hope the best for the persona return in any shape or format in this opinion. Snow White being among the first animations is still the most resonant and heartfelt feature movie than most here as well. An excellent figure in beautiful animation niche of subjects.
This man was talented, a very good artist. And opened his own theme park so we can see all the characters from his own mind. Still, his company is greedy but still a very good creator. He was very creative, outgoing, and he had a very great imagination.
While Uncle Walt was in fact one of the greatest people(you can even say leaders) associated with animation, I do not think he is the greatest "animator" of all time. Walt himself did animation in the general sense in the 1920s, when he was still trying to build up his studio with artists. Once he had his skilled artists together, he would resort to building story based on a novel or something, get assistance(say Ub Iwerks) with building storyboard sketches, and explain the storyboards as if he was an actor, he was one of the greatest storytellers of all time in my opinion. So in this sense, even though I disagree that he is considered the greatest animator of all time, if this was a list of the most influential people with animation, on the other hand, he would easily be the greatest "fairest one of them all".
His movies a better than everything Disney has even done. I believe they are a far more narratively and visually appealing.
I'm not sure about all of his movies but I know that almost all of the big name one's were drawn and colored by hand. Yes, Miyazaki had a team help him, a team that he taught to draw exactly like he does. I'm not sure what is more impressive making two hour and forty minute flip books or teaching other people to draw like yourself so that when you make one; no one can tell it is a flip book, drawn by more than one person. What I do know is that anyone of Miyazaki's works is worlds more impressive than Steamboat Micky. If you ask why, my answer is the man made flip books that tell stories, stories filled with complex characters and plot with depth, both things Walt Disney lacked.
Ok ok, this guy's another great and one of the most awesome people I've heard of. I always wondered who the mysterious god behind the scene was. Like I'm addicted to what he's created and I can't see my life without animes because it'd be like a part of me has been literally ripped off. And I agree with the fact that unlike Disney? His has more depth, it isn't just for the thrill or whatever but all the stories and mangas, always have a way of teaching or reminding you a really important and meaningful lesson. I'm really happy to know that at least part of the world appreciate his work and love what he's created. OTAKUS & OTOMES for life✊🏽✊🏽
Hayao Miyazaki with Studio Ghibli have more than 10 of the most extravagant charming feature films or presentations have ever seen. Disney has Aladdin and Snow White which follow suit without the upgrade in film technology something as Big Hero 6 or the clay animation The Nightmare Before Christmas. Those are nice but to where the soul is the Studio Ghibli delivers with titles as Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind, or Princess Mononoke kind of video which anyone can be fond of. While Disney remains richer, Miyazaki pursues and proves there can be more to a 2 or more hour movie of the traditional breakthroughs which is great news for the future of that kind of animation. Disney is rich and capable to advance levels of animations, Studio Ghibli is still with intelligent and witty while keeping the charm when Disney began 1930s where Ghibli began 1980s. The style survives and seems to thrive for more than 50 years. then to 2020 another 40 years. Hence in 10 years what might be 2030 is ...more
The Simpsons and Matt Groening are the best artists in the television category. The best part about the Simpsons is it seems to evolve without issues over the span of 30 years since 1989, A heavy weight champion and true to the form of entertainment in unimaginable circumstances to even some of the middle class. Beautifully done series and hope the Simpsons continue to amaze. Great work and the reason am in its favor instead of Futurama is it still has potential plus there are more nice things to remember even with some pitfalls every now and then. Family Guy is also too obscene but the fact it is most of the time is why the Simpsons return. Real interesting, will not be certain what to expect with this!
Futurama is huge, glad about the Planet Express ship even years after. The characters are quirky and can get use to. The crew itself are distinct and unique from each other though on the same team by very much. The interactions complete as surely something when conclusions are done. A fine animator for the modern planet. Neat solutions with Matt Groening, happy those titles turn out that well.
Despite the quality in comparison to Futurama, the animations of the Simpsons have some of the most memorable scenes in animation. Aside from that they are extremely popular and not many knowing not about the Simpsons family Springfield diamond team. Another job well done to Mr. Groening.
Matt Groening is not an Animator. He is a cartoonist. All animation work is done by actual animators. His show is undoubtedly cemented in American culture and is significant in many respects. However, per this list, he is not an actual animator
Seth MacFarlane took what was mainly for children, save for The Simpsons and took it to a new level making cartoons something for adults too. While it can be said that his shows go too far, and they're not necessarily award-worthy, it cannot be denied that the animation is top notch. Watch the two-part episode of Family Guy with the Mansion mystery featuring James Woods and you'll see that he brings it to a whole new level for simple television animation. He's definitely a huge contributor to the field in the past two decades
American Dad is a good one. For some reason despite less popularity find it better than the Family Guy which sometimes is overboard by much in comparison. A job well done, comedy gem at the same time not as obscene.
Seth MacFarlane has always been my inspiration, and I wish one day I could be like him, I really respect this man here, he's the boss.
Dude you are awesome you created family guy and voiced ted my fave cartoon character
This is number 1 hands down! These guy created great cartoons such as: The Huckleberry Hound Show, The Quick Draw McGraw Show, The Flintstones, The Yogi Bear Show, Top Cat, The Jetsons, The Magilla Gorilla Show, Jonny Quest, Space Ghost, Wacky Races, Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! And The Smurfs.
They eventually moved forward from those to new cartoon shows (Cartoon Cartoons) such as Dexter's Laboratory, Johnny Bravo, Cow and Chicken, I Am Weasel and The Powerpuff Girls.
Space Ghost Coast to Coast is hard to forget. Well done Will Hanna, a fine Cartoon record, even more so noticing Space Ghost is a part of it all. A hint of comedy and there is some fine animations to see a long with that. Pretty awesome!
Whoever separated the dynamic duo should be lynched. I grew up watching Hanna-Barbera cartoon and they are still as sly, funny and enthralling now. Easily number 3, after Number #1 Tex Avery and Number #2 Chuck Jones
Will Hanna is definitely awesome but he definitely didn't create the smurfs.
Even Seth MacFarlane would admit that Chuck Jones is better...
How is Seth MacFarlane above the creator of Looney Tunes?
The best known... Impossible not to laugh..
His animation inspires me to work hard.
The King of cartoons for sure one of the makers of the Golden age of animation, Creator of Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Droopy, Chilly Willy and more Easily My Top ten people who changed animation
This was the guy who practically invented cartoon gags. He created Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck and Droopy the Basset Hound among others.
I'm suprised about the low ranking of arguably the inventor of edgy cartoon gags.
More a director, but deserves the vote.
Tim Burton makes the whole animation a stunning art of stop-motion. In stop motion animations, plots can get pretty dull, but Mr.Burton hopped over that wall. There is something to his work that makes it so mysterious and magical. It encourages us to crave more into curiousness and uniqueness in our surroundings. One animation or movie from him just forms that kind of atmosphere. And that is something no animator can ever inherit.
I like the Nightmare Before Christmas, and that it is still alive. This guy is a huge star, animation is rare here.
I love his animation. So gothic so unique. And great stories to go with. Very underrated.
He animated for disney... and I enjoy his unique style.
Toy Story brings out the kid in people and think it should get more recognition but a vote for Mr. Lasseter is the right direction anyhow. The five major personas in toward 2020. So fine work John with that team it is more charming this way in opinion from here. Not fully sure but not far off either.
He's a one of the great animators ever...
This man is born for animation.. After he's creation in up and toy story pixar and Disney got new meaning to their respective position...
I love the toy story Franchise though he deserves to be at the top three
He is my best animator and great inspire in my life as an animator
Greatest of all time next to disney
creators of personalaties such as cartman, kenny eric, and kyle
Seriously! Family guy, cow and chicken and the fintstones, higher in rank than DBZ!?
IS he an animator? I thought he was an artist.
Thanks for dbz make awesome
You are the best
Ub stayed and helped walt Disney through all the trouble in their business
Ub (a.K.A. "Ubbe") was Walt Disney's "pen-hand" and a profound innovator throughout his lifetime in the business.
Why is he #14 and disney #1? people are idiots.
Should be higher than 13th
Is he the son of Joseph Barbara? I mean, his face at the picture was the next Scream painting.
Joe Barbera was one half of Hanna/Barbera.
Genndy is part of the reason I got into drawing and minute animation (not saying his art style is minute, I'm saying mine is lol). My favorite cartoon this man ever created was Dexter's Laboratory for the simple fact that it helped me ignore the real world for that 10-20 minutes. My parents are owed personal gratitude because without them, there'd be no chance whatsoever that I'd get the chance to experience his masterful animation. To Genndy Tartakovski, I nod my 20 year old head.
My favorite with Hayao Miyazaki. I think that he's more than a simple animator, he's an artist. Starting with Dexter's Lab, Powerpuff Girls, and creating a masterpiece such as Samurai Jack. Not everybody is chosen by a genius like George Lucas to make a mini-series in the middle of his biggest saga. Also he participated in the artbooks for some action sequences of Iron Man 2, and his last job: Hotel Transylvania
Pretty good for a 10th place, uh?
Great animator. One of my personal favorites. I watched his shows when I was a kid and one day to not only meet him, but be like him, Create the in-depth characters with a interesting story that I can't wait to continue writing.
I'll admit I'm not really a huge fan of his other projects but I'll give him credit for making Samurai Jack (one of the best cartoons ever made).
Nick Park has a good intention to create fabulous animated features and shorts and does not brag or spend large amounts of money on wasted items he has a good background and followed his heart to the top of his career as much money as he has rightfully earned he prefers life as simple as it maybe to fit in and not change himself atall hardly which I respect greatly.
The creator of one of the most original and funny animated series ever, his style and technique remains his and his only. As a major fan of stop-motion animation, I have no choice but to vote right here.
Nobody does stop motion animation quite like Nick Park and his Aardman studio. Creature Comforts, Morph, Chicken Run and Wallane & Grommit came from here.
If it works with Walt then it works with me
The one who influenced me the most to become an animator
The guy who created Charlie Brown!
Creator of King of the Hill and Beavis and Butthead. Both great shows and actually shows character development with humour also following it.
How is Seth MacFarlane at fourth place...
yeah, damn good animator and voice actor too
