Genndy made his feature directorial debut in 2012 at Creator/SonyPicturesAnimation with ''WesternAnimation/HotelTransylvania'' (admittedly because [[MoneyDearBoy he needed work]]) which was a financial success. After directing its sequel, he was pegged to do an All-CGI Cartoon ''ComicStrip/{{Popeye}}'' feature, returning to his roots, until [[DevelopmentHell the project got shelved]]. He's currently set to direct a third ''Transylvania'' movie.

Born in 1970 in the USSR to Jewish parents, Tartakovsky moved abroad with his family, afraid of anti-semitism. First they went to UsefulNotes/{{Italy}}, where he picked up art from their German neighbours' daughter. Upon his arrival in UsefulNotes/TheUnitedStates, he got his first exposure to American cartoons and developed a deep love of ComicStrip/{{Popeye}}, WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes, and HumongousMecha anime.

** He tried to ''bypass'' the censors entirely with the deliberately profane ''Dexter's Laboratory'' episode "Rude Removal," made by the crew purely for their own amusement with no intention of it actually airing.[[note]]It did eventually air on Creator/AdultSwim as a special presentation, albeit with all of the swearing censored. Still, spending thousands of dollars of the network's money purely for a gag is a gutsy move.[[/note]]

He has been HappilyMarried to Dawn David since 2000, around the time his notoriety as a cartoonist really took off (he joked that spent their honeymoon storyboarding the ''Samurai Jack'' pilot and later had her as a guest for an online Q&A when it coincided with their date night). Needless to say, she's a strong supporter of his career.

Following his work on another dialogue-heavy show with ThickLineAnimation was one that had neither: ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack,'' a hugely ambitious series with a unique, cinematic style, equal parts Creator/AkiraKurosawa, SpaghettiWestern and anime, widely considered to be both his and Cartoon Network's greatest accomplishments. Plans to end the series with a theatrical feature were put on hold when ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirlsMovie'' [[BoxOfficeBomb flopped]] and he would spend the next decade pitching it to various studios in between other projects.

* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Creator/CraigMcCracken, at least for a time. While the two helped one another with their respective student films and later get hired at Creator/HannaBarbera, continuing to work on one another's shows throughout TheNineties, the two have yet to work together again after Genndy left ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls''.

Added DiffLines:

* TheWorkaholic: Downplayed. While he eventually did have a family which he makes time for, he makes no secret that he's first and foremost married to his career. He admits that he never saw a completed episode of ''WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory'' until it was on the air, simply because he was too busy making the next episodes, and had next to no social life when it was running. He had to set time aside during his honeymoon to storyboard the pilot for ''Jack'' and later spent his date night with his wife doing a Q&A livestream.
