Personal Quote:

(Comparing 1950s animation to 1940s animation): This is from a later Chuck Jones cartoon and is much more complex, but again it still is based on the same principles. It has angles and more complex forms-but the angles are all in sensible places - unlike today's angular cartoons that have arbitrary and inconsistent designs that don't work well for animation; think Mulan (1998).

Trivia:

When approached by Nickelodeon to do a cartoon series, he gave them the characters Ren and Stimpy because he didn't want to risk losing the rights to his original two characters, George Liquor and Jimmy the Idiot Boy (Ren and Stimpy were originally the two characters' pets). In fact, he was right-- after 'Ren and Stimpy' was a big hit, Nickelodeon fired him and kept the show. See more »
