Samurai Jack is Genndy Tartakovsky’s award-winning masterpiece that aired from 2001-2004 with a final season in 2017. The show was animated digitally, so there are no animation cels that were produced. However, the backgrounds for the series were still painted by hand on board in watercolor, gouache and ink.
