Eugene Merril Deitch was an American-Czech illustrator, animator, comics artist, and film director. Based in Prague since 1959, Deitch was known for creating animated cartoons such as Munro, Tom Terrific, and Nudnik, as well as his work on the Popeye and Tom and Jerry series.

Deitch, one the directors behind one of world’s most popular cartoons, Tom and Jerry, died in his apartment in Prague, his Czech publisher, Petr Himmel, told The Associated Press.

Born on August 8 in 1924, in Chicago, Deitch, whose full name was Eugene Merrill Deitch, was known for directing some of the most popular animator cartoons, including Popeye the Sailor Man, Munro, Tom Terrific and Nudnik.

He had directed 13 episodes of Tom and Jerry and multiple episodes of the Popeye the Sailor series.

Deitch arrived in Prague in 1959 on a 10-day trip, where he fell in love with his future wife, Zdenka, and decided to settle down in the Czechoslovakian capital. He created some of his best works while living in Prague.

Deitch’s won the Academy Award for Best Animated Short Film in 1960 for his film Munro. He also received nominations for the same category twice in 1964 for Here’s Nudnik and How to Avoid Friendship.

Another series, Sidney’s Family Tree, which he had co-produced, was nominated for an Academy Award in 1958.

He received the Winsor McCay Award for his lifelong contribution to animation in 2004.

Deitch is survived by his wife and three sons from his first marriage. All his three sons are cartoonists and illustrators

  7. Even though this great man who contributed to one of the most iconic cartoon series of all times that pioneered drawn animation itself has now passed away, his vision will remain alive. Organisations like Disney and Cartoon Network will aways dish out amazing drawn cartoons (even if they're drawn digitally) and Japan will always find a booming market for drawn animations! You could say that Tom & Jerry helped a lot to kickstart the worldwide phenomenon that is animation. And Mr. Deitch was a part of it all.
