Bruce W. Smith Biography

Bruce W. Smith is a feature film director, animator, and television producer. He is best known as the Creator and Executive Producer of the Disney Channel hit show "The Proud Family," and Supervising Animator of the evil villain Dr. Facilier in the Disney animated film The Princess and the Frog.

Smith studied animation at California Institute of the Arts and later joined The Walt Disney Studios as an animator on Who Framed Roger Rabbit. Smith went on to direct the Paramount Pictures film Bébé’s Kids and co-directed on the Warner Bros. live action/animated movie Space Jam before returning to Disney to supervise animation on Tarzan and The Emperor’s New Groove.
