Donald Virgil "Don" Bluth (born September 13, 1937) is an American animator, film director, producer, writer, production designer and video game designer.
From 1955 to 1979 he worked with Disney Studios where he participated in the development of Sleeping Beauty, Robin Hood, The Rescuers and Pete's Dragon.
He then teamed up with two other Disney animators, Gary Goldman and John Pomeroy, to create Don Bluth Productions. In 1982, their debut The Secret of NIMH was a mixed success and this led to Don Bluth Productions being on the verge of bankruptcy.
In 1983, the trio founded Bluth Group and began creating and selling video games such as the famous Dragon's Lair or Space Ace, but with the video game industry being in a crisis, this did not allow them to continue in this direction.
With the help of Morris Sullivan, an investor who believed in the future of traditional animation, he founded the Sullivan Bluth Studios with Steven Spielberg and negotiated the start of construction of a new feature film, An American Tail (1986) which was a great success, as were the following productions: The Land Before Time (1988), All Dogs Go to Heaven (1989), Rock-a-Doodle (1992) and Thumbelina (1994).
