Bob KurtzOccupation / Title:
His career started when he began writing the pink panther series.
Bob Kurtz began his career as a writer in the early 60’s to late 70’s. And in the early 80’s he began to work as a producer and director. Later on he started his own animation studio in Burbank, Kurtz & Friends, which their latest work includes the Pink Panther (2006).
Bob has a very original way to look at things. He combines the art and beauty of contemporary animations with his cutting edge humors. Charles Solomon, an author and animation film critic was once quoted saying that most of the times Bob’s commercials are more interesting than the programs it’s interrupting.
