Personal Quote:

[What characters did he animate on Roger Rabbit?] I animated mostly weasels, but I also did a few Roger and Jessica shots. Dick Williams had always been a hero of mine when I was still at school, and it was largely because of him that I took a chance and quit school (after one year) to go work on Roger.
