[on Tony Randall, 1965]: Randall takes direction beautifully. He filters it through his own mechanism. Some comedians imitate their directors. When you're working with Tony, you feel like a ballet master. His technique is as clean as a chess game. His control is beautiful to watch - an acting lesson for anyone interested in the art of acting.

in Say One for Me
(1959), Bing mentioned to Tashlin how much he hated how he was caricatured in the Warner Bros. cartoon Swooner Crooner
(1944). Tashlin laughed, and told Bing that not only did he direct that cartoon, he also animated the caricature in it!
His cartoons featured quick editing, wild and outrageous gags, and extremely odd angles
