Dan Kuenster

Dan Kuenster (born December 29, 1955 in Chicago, Illinois) is an American character animator and director, who worked for Walt Disney Animation Studios and Sullivan Bluth Studios, before pursuing educational multimedia projects.[1] He is currently Executive Vice President of Design and Animation at Istation in Dallas, Texas.


While working on The Fox and the Hound, he met animator Don Bluth, and later left Disney for Bluth's newly formed independent studio. He continued to work through the growth of Sullivan Bluth studios, and when production facilities moved to Dublin, Ireland, he relocated to co-direct two of its most ambitious films, All Dogs Go to Heaven and Rock-a-Doodle. He returned to Los Angeles in the mid-1990s, to focus on the budding interactive and multimedia industry, where he designed games and animated for software developer 7th Level. He has also worked on many live action projects as a director, screenwriter, and storyboard artist, and he has voice acted in many of his films.

The Emmy Award for Outstanding Individual Achievement in Animation was presented to him in 2004, for storyboarding the PBS show "Jakers! The Adventures of Piggley Winks".[2]

He is currently Executive Vice President of Design and Animation at Istation (Imagination Station), a critically acclaimed[3] software developer and publisher of integrated reading and math intervention programs.
