    Awwww :cry:. Sorry to hear of his passing. Thanks for your work Mr. Luckey. I think my favorite piece of his was "The Alligator King" (It's funny but I kept passing by it today & didn't play it. )

    I read a quote from Bud Luckey that really sums up his contributions to the world: "Years ago, I used animation to teach numbers [on Sesame Street], and now young people are teaching me how to animate using numbers."

    This shows how much one man can make a difference, and how he adjusted to the changing times. He went from using ink and animation cels to computers, and he made the world a better place with Sesame Street, Toy Story, A Bug's Life, Monsters Inc., and Cars. Thank you for everything, and RIP Mr. Luckey.
