I have talked in the past about my love of the British production house Cosgrove Hall. So it would be remiss of me not to write a few words on the passing of one half of the founders – Mark Hall.

If you are a child of the 80’s then you know his work, even if you don’t know the name, just take a look at this list.


Chorlton and the Wheelies

Jamie and the Magic Torch


The Wind in the Willows.

All of those shows are (in my opinion) classics of the highest order and the world is a sadder place for the loss of this man.  He helped make my childhood a fun one and proved that a small British animation house could be as great as their American counterparts.

So for that and many other reasons – I salute you Mr Hall and mourn the passing of a legend.

I promise a bigger blog later in the week but for now I leave you with this….
