Everyone remembers the wonderful intros for WGBH Boston's series Mystery Gorey himself did the drawings, and Derek Lamb (of Sesame Street and The National Film Board of Canada) directed the animation. In an article for Animation World magazine, Lamb recounts the experience of meeting Gorey.
Gorey has captured the imaginations of many. A few people have taken it upon themselves to make animated versions of his stories.
The Tuning Fork, Sara Hasz, 2006
A very nicely done student project.
The Gashlycrumb Tinies, Matt Duplessie, 2007
The artwork of Edward Gorey, put through the stop motion treatment. The animation and sound is reminiscient Terry Gilliam.
