Of the many notable individuals we regrettably lost in 2013, one whose legacy will be far more familiar to most than his name is André Cassagnes (PeekYou profile here); inventor of the Etch-A-Sketch.

In the video above, which comes to us courtesy of The New York Times, an animated tribute uses Cassagnes’ enduring invention to teach you a bit about the toy itself and the man responsible.
