Mark Hall, co-creator of “DangerMouse”, Passes Away At Age 75

The Associated Press is reporting that Mark Hall, co-creator of the popular British children’s animation series DangerMouse, Count Duckula and Jamie and his Magic Torch, passed away last night at the age of 75. After working for Granada TV in the 60s, Hall and Brian Cosgrove founded the animation company Cosgrove Hall Productions in 1976 and created a number of animated series such as DangerMouse and even the animated version of Kenneth Grahame’s book Wind in the Willows. After retiring in 2000, Hall recently reconstituted his partnership with Cosgove with plans to create new works. Hall’s son Simon plans to continue his father’s work.
