‘Roobarb’ creator dies

by Richard on February 23, 2013

I was very sorry to learn that the animator Bob Godfrey has died. In 1974 Mr Godfrey ran a kids’ tv programme, The Do-it-yourself Film Animation Show and subsequently published a similarly-titled book. Me and my friend Kev were greatly inspired, and spent a fair chunk of the later 1970s making daft short films on a ‘Super-8′ camera. Family rumour suggests that some of these may still exist: if so, I’ll have to get them digitized. Surely YouTube was invented for the epics produced by K&R Films!
