Biography

Emmy-winning producer-director Rich Moore worked on some of the most popular animated television series of the late 20th century, including "The Simpsons" (Fox, 1989- ) and "Futurama" (Fox/Comedy Central, 1999-2003, 2008- ) before joining Pixar to direct their 2012 summer hit, "Wreck-It Ralph. " Raised in Oxnard, CA, Moore graduated from the California Institute of the Arts' Character Animation Program, which also served as the training ground for Pixar director Andrew Stanton, future director of "Wall-E" (2008). While there, he served as narrator for a satirical short called "Bring Me the Head of Charlie Brown" (1988), a student project by Jim Reardon, who later joined him on "The Simpsons" as an animator director and storyboard consultant before sharing a Best Original Screenplay Oscar nomination with Stanton on "Wall-E." Moore then served as animator on a variety of daytime and primetime series, from Brad Bird's acclaimed "Family Dog" episode on "Amazing Stories" (NBC, 1985-87) to cult animation hero Ralph Bakshi's "Mighty Mouse: The New Adventures" (NBC, 1987-89, 1992). In 1989, he joined the staff of "The Simpsons" as a storyboard artist and character designer before moving up to director on eight episodes between 1990 and 1993, which netted him an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Animated Programming in 1991.
