Director of #Tom&Jerry and #Popeye #GeneDeitch dies at 96


The creator of our childhood memories has passed on. All the kids who looked forward to, obsessed it, loved, grew up watching, held and still holding dearly the beautifully captivating animation series of Tom&Jerry have you to thank for this never running out of creative ideas for our innocent memories.

Mr. Gene Deitch died back in April 2020 of natural causes, not from covid19 complications as one might assume. He lived a ripe old age life from 1924-2020. May his creative soul rest in peace.
