YMMV: Genndy Tartakovsky

  • Growing the Beard: While Dexter and Powerpuff Girls were very well-received, he fully achieved a level of developed dramatic and stylistic storytelling with Samurai Jack and Sym-Bionic Titan that would rival most live-action works.
  • “Stop Having Fun” Guy: Those who've worked with him sometimes accuse him of this due to his strict work ethic. Justified, in that you have to be like that when working in animation.
  • Tear Jerker: His father died of a sudden heart attack, and his mother succumbed to cancer.
  • Uncanny Valley: Plenty of his character designs, particularly background characters.
