I LOVE his work, and I'm very sorry to learn he has passed.
Every Halloween, I watch his "Claymation Comedy of Horrors" - a 1991 special that should be on TV every year!

Some of my other favorites:

 1992 Claymation Easter
 1990 Raisins Sold Out: The California Raisins II
 1988 Meet the Raisins!
 1987 A Claymation Christmas Celebration
 1985 The Adventures of Mark Twain

Also, there are other films he made that I also enjoyed greatly! Some of them were shorter than the above ones, often with poignant messages by the writers.

The one with the most powerful message is this one:

It's called Mountain Music, it's under 10 minutes, and it was written by Will Vinton himself.

RIP Mr. Vinton, and thank you.
