Innovative animator Will Vinton, who coined the word "Claymation," has died at the age of 70, following a long illness. Vinton animated popular and toyetic advertising mascots, such as the California Raisins and the Noid, but he was also capable of eerie, dark work, as with the stones in Return to Oz and the appearance of Satan in The Adventures of Mark Twain. Children of the '80s will remember his work vividly for its rich, uncanny, lifelike qualities.
