An innovator in the field of stop-motion cinematography passed away today at age 92. Fans of Monsters Inc. will recognize his name as THE place to see and be seen in Monstropolis (not to mention dine on their famous sushi). RIP Ray Harryhausen. Schmoopsypoo and Googlybear salute you!

He was truly way ahead of his time, very brilliant man. May he rest in peace. - DiamondInTheRough  349.6 #675 6:29PM
A true legend in the stop-motion and special effects field. A little Disney tie-in: he did a lot of the animals for the film "Mysterious Island" in which where the music for the Primeval World segment of the DL Railroad is from (its a stretch) - BaseballMickey_CM  7599.7 #11 7:12PM
I saw Haryhausen speak live at Gnomom school of Effects. I loved his work from "The voyage of Sinbad" and "The Clash of the Titans". He did a coffee table book awhile back. - oceanfan90  49.4 #4809 7:21PM
Not a fan of monsters inc, but I was a big fan of his the original Clash of the Titans is one of my favorite movies. I remember seeing him at comic-con a few years back. :( - Lelundrial  656.4 #304 7:22PM
