Walter Potter, an old long dead taxidermist but he pretty much defined anthropomorphic taxidermy. His scenes putting animals in human situations are just so awesome and have so much character to them. It's like a real life animation or something you almost expect them to move. Mundane tasks like cheating on the math test, that is just excellent But my favorite piece of his is the last image of the boxing mice because its like stop motion and it's so well done.
