Christopher Mason "Chris" Savino (born October 2, 1971 in Royal Oak, Michigan) is an American animator. He began his career in the animation industry on April 18, 1991 and has worked for Spümcø, Joe Murray Studio, Games Animation, Hanna-Barbera, Cartoon Network Studios, and Disney Television Animation and is currently planning a live-action short called Bigfoot & Gray: On the Run and an animated film called Adventures in Milk. He was also previously a writer for My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic. In June 2014, his short for Nickelodeon's The Loud House was greenlit for a full series, and debuted on May 2, 2016.
When Craig McCracken left The Powerpuff Girls after the first 4 seasons to work on another Cartoon Network show, Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends, Chris Savino was left in charge of seasons 5 and 6 of The Powerpuff Girls, much like how Genndy Tartakovsky left him in charge of Dexter's Laboratory to work on Samurai Jack.
