Who was he? The creator of some of the BBC's staple children's cartoons during the 1970s and 80s - Rhubarb and Custard, Noah and Nelly and Henry's Cat.
Ironic that he died in the same week as Richard Briers, who narrated two of those titles.

Blimey... they are dropping like flies this week. Another one gone.

Aw - a delightful series of programmes to be involved in.
And, as you say, Richard Briers narrated two of them.
RIP Bob and here is one of your finest.

I can't believe he was 91! Makes me feel old.

Very sad news.
Both Henry's Cat and Roobarb and Custard are some of my childhood favourites.
Agreed strange that it happened in the same week as Richard Briers.
The age of the British animator is slowly phasing out from existence.
RIP Bob Godrey.
