Mark Hall, co-founder of animation house Cosgrove Hall, has passed away following a short illness.

The 74 year old, who was involved in creating children’s TV shows such as DangerMouse, Count Duckula and Wind in the Willows, founded the company in 1969 with Brian Cosgrove.

The company ceased trading in 2009, but last month it was announced that Cosgrove had been resurrected and the co-founders had come out of retirement to work with Dublin-based entrepreneur Francis Fitzpatrick to form Cosgrove Hall Fitzpatrick.

Fitzpatrick said: “It is with great sadness that I heard of the passing of my business partner Mark Hall. He was iconic within the animation industry and it has been a real pleasure to work with such a kind, caring and generous person.”
