Wombles animator Ivor Wood dies


Acclaimed British animator Ivor Wood has died at the age of 72.

Wood, a stop-motion expert, was instrumental in developing some of the most popular children's shows on TV, including Postman Pat and The Wombles.


Born to a French mother, he learnt his craft working on The Magic Roundabout with series creator Serge Danot.


He is probably best remembered for his work on the animated series Paddington with author Michael Bond. He is survived by his wife, Josiane, and son.

Shouldn't we change the title of the thread Dead Losses to Notable People Who Have Died But Were Not On The List? Perhaps it's too cryptic...
