Posted November 12, 2018 05:01:53 The cartoon frog is one of the most beloved mascots at Nickelodeons.
The cartoonist and writer, who died on Wednesday, was the first to create a frog with a human face and body, and the first creator to have a frog-like body language.
His death was announced by Nickelodeont in a statement on Twitter.
“Today, my friend, cartoonist David Daley, passed away,” it read.
“He was my teacher and my idol.
He was the most talented cartoonist I’ve ever met and he will be sorely missed.
I’ll never forget his funny cartoons and his sense of humour.
My deepest condolences to his family and friends.”
The cartoon, created by Daley in 1997, has been credited with introducing the frog to young kids around the world, which it was originally marketed to.
The cartoonist had a number of children’s and young adult titles including The Wild One, The Wild Ones, The One Who Loves Me, The Little One, the Great One and The Little Prince.
Mr Daley was born in Birmingham, England and spent most of his childhood in the US, where he had a childhood friend, his mother Ann, who was a writer and illustrator.
Ann Daley told the BBC: “He always wanted to be a cartoonist, he had always wanted a career in illustration, so he got a degree in cartooning from the University of Liverpool.”
He was a fantastic cartoonist.
He had a passion for cartoons and he really loved them.
Mr Dacey was also known for his children’s books including The Little Mermaid, where his father, John Daley (pictured above) worked on the Disney Princesses, and The Wonderful World of Disney, which was published in 1994. “
And I think he always loved the kids and was a great example for me as a young boy.”

His work on children’s cartoons was recognised for his unique drawing style.
During his life, Mr Daley also worked on shows such as The Simpsons, which he also wrote and directed, and SpongeBob SquarePants, which premiered in 2001.
He also designed the characters of The Lion King and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
In 2012, Mr Trump was said to be in favour of a ban on cartoon frogs.
A spokesman for the Cartoon Network told ABC News that the network would be making a statement shortly.
More to come.
