Jacques Rouxel (animator)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Jacques Rouxel (26 February 1931 – 25 April 2004), born in Cherbourg, France, was a film animator. He is said to have been on a par with Tex Avery.[citation needed] Rouxel is perhaps best known for his initially controversial animated French TV series Les Shadoks,[1] which first appeared in 1968.

Rouxel graduated from the Lycée Français de New York in 1946 and obtained a business degree from the École des Hautes études commerciales.

He worked on the prototype of a special machine, the "Animographe", especially designed to accelerate the production of animated TV series.
