This was a man who created and produced some of the most incredible animation ever put to film.  I'd say we haven't seen much that achieved his level.  Especially today.  Very few really understood animation movement like he did.  Some of his work-even on his non human characters looks rotoscoped.  

A real inspiration to animator and just fans of animation in general.

If you watch the video I linked, please pay attention to his quote at the end.  I think it really captures his mindset.

At least, that's what Gary Busey told me...

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
