William York Wray (born March 24, 1956) has worked in the animation industry since 1978, most often as a background painter. On The Mighty B!, he worked as such during the show's entire run in addition to directing several season 2 episodes. Outside of animation, Wray has cultivated another career as a landscape painter.

Career

Wray got his start in animation as an animator, for the animation studios Filmation, Hanna-Barbera and Disney. By the 1980s, he had been working on comic books.

He returned to animation on The Ren & Stimpy Show, which parlayed into providing backgrounds to various cartoons, including Samurai Jack and Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated.
