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.
- Magnum Opus: Easily Samurai Jack.
- Nightmare Fuel: This gloriously insane TV spot he directed for a nicotine patch.
- 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.
