Todd Jacobsen is a veteran of the Hollywood animation industry with feature and television credits ranging from the sublime ("The Princess and the Frog," "The Prince of Egypt," "FernGully:  The Last Rainforest") to the simplehearted ("Cats Don't Dance," "Curious George," "The Wild Thornberrys Movie") to the subversive ("The Simpsons," "Family Guy," "The Ren & Stimpy Show").

He lives near Valencia, California.  And if he's not at his desk, there's a pretty good chance he's in the kitchen making himself a peanut butter sandwich.



Some more recommendations from some REALLY nice folks (your checks are in the mail):
