Cartoon Brew is reporting that animation producer, director, and screenwriter Alexander Tatarski (a.k.a. Aleksandr Tatarskiy) has passed away at the age of 57. Tatarski was one of the founders and managing directors of Pilot Animation Studios in 1988, Russia’s first privately-owned animation studio and the country’s largest producer of animation. He was also the president of the Russian Animation Film Festival since 1995, and his claymation opening to Russia’s Good Night, Kids has been airing for more than 25 years, making it the Guinness Book of World Records holder for the most aired cartoons. In 1986, he became the first Russian director to produce animation for a western client, and he directed several episodes of Cartoon Network’s Mike, Lu & Og.
