From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

John Halas was a Hungarian animator. (16 April 1912 Budapest, Hungary – 21 January 1995, London, England). He learned his craft under George Pal, but launched his own career in 1934, and two years later moved to England where he and his wife Joy Batchelor founded Halas and Batchelor.

Over the years they made over 70 short subjects during the war, using propaganda from the time. Their most famous feature, Animal Farm, was the first full-length animated film made in Great Britain.
