Australian film producer Yoram Gross, who helped create and bring loveable animated characters Blinky Bill and Dot And The Kangaroo to the big screen, has died at the age of 88.

Guy Gross told Inside Film that his father died quietly on Monday.

He said he “was a wonderfully inappropriate jokester”.
