Sorry to post the same thing twice but I crapped it up the first time and I think it's a pretty interesting topic.

I think this is a pretty definative list although I would've liked to include Steve Hillenberg for his work on Rocko's Modern Life and maybe Henry Selick and Nick Park for their stop-motion stuff.

My vote goes to John K with Tex Avery and Bob Clampett jostling for second place.

"All Time Best Animation Director of All Time"?  Isn't that a bit redundant?  Isn't it?  Redundant?  Don't you think?     tongue

Anyway, I'm torn between Miyazaki and Chuck Jones, but I'm going with Chuck because I've been a fan of his work longer (and because Duck Amuck is my all-time favourite piece of animation.)

As I said before, I admire Chuck Jones the most, however I do not think him the best ever. There have been som many great animators I don't want to have to choose.

'Nightmare Before Chridtmas' was actually directed by Henry Selick who also did 'James and the Giant Peach' and 'Monkeybone'. Tim Burton just wrote and produced it.

Well I went with Miyazaki since he has been consistently great in my mind over a body of work; I do like some of the others quite a bit though. Chuck Jones and Satoshi Kon being right up there, along with Mamoru Oshii for me.

I would have voted Miyazaki as well, but.. No one's voted for John Lasseter! Give him a little credit. Okay, you're right. Not QUITE as great as Miyazaki. But you should see the video of him pitching Finding Nemo[on the Nemo DVD]. The look on his face as he tells the story, scene by scene, is so touching.. As if he were telling a family anecdote that truly inspired great feeling in his heart. I don't usually pay so much attention to directors.. But Lasseter has an eye for detail and a love of his work, that much is for sure.
Bakshi is awesome, too. If you like him check out these essays.. http://www.michaelbarrier.com/funnyworld_revisited.htm

I've never seen any movie in my life I like better than 'Princess Mononoke', so I'll say Miyazaki, although I think Walt Disney deserves to be on the list far more than some of the others who made it.

Walt Disney couldn't even draw. I saw a picture of Mickey mouse he did once and it looked like a three year old did it.

Whoever did "The Iron Giant".

::consults DVD:: Ah, that'd be Brad Bird. Go him!

IMDb lists an interesting career profile. Huh. I din't know that he was directing "The Incredibles" (I should have been able to tell from the way the characters are modeled), or that he worked on "The Simpsons", "King of the Hill" and "The Critic". Live and learn.

Brad Bird is genius.. He has a lovely style, realistic and very expressive. I loved the Iron Giant ever since I saw the squirrel go in that man's pants.
Sylvain Chomet should be here, too...
Who was the animation director for Osmosis Jones? That film had gorgeous animation and design[and not much of anything else, really]. Whoever supervised that did a bangup job. Now, as for the script and unpleasant live action.. Hmm.. >/

I say Henry Selick for his work on "The Nightmare Before Christmas." Amazing, it is.
