Welcome to Hell. Here's your accordion.
I wanted to be a cartoonist, but there was no cartoon academy. So I enrolled in the Royal Danish Art Academy School of Architecture. But then I really got smitten by architecture.
Animation is different from other parts. Its language is the language of caricature. Our most difficult job was to develop the cartoon's unnatural but seemingly natural anatomy for humans and animals.
I started, actually, to make my first animated cartoon in 1920. Of course, they were very crude things then and I used sort of little puppet things.
I was totally into cartoon babes when I was a little dude. Cheetara from the 'Thundercats,' then Jessica Rabbit, and finally I moved onto a real-life human being and was into Punky Brewster, and then Christina Applegate on 'Married with Children.'
The new Disney cartoon 'Bambi' is interesting because it's the first one that's been entirely unpleasant.
I got a bike when I was little, a BMX. I called it 'Fido Dido' after the tough little cartoon guy with spiked hair. I thought he was the coolest thing ever.
All cartoon characters and fables must be exaggeration, caricatures. It is the very nature of fantasy and fable.
I try to build a full personality for each of our cartoon characters - to make them personalities.
I think it's a novelty for cartoon characters to cross over into another strip or panel occasionally.
I don't wanna play this kind of cartoon character anymore.
I wanted to become a cartoon artist, a portrait artist, and an illustrator. This was my first idea.
I probably would be continuing to do voice-overs, continuing to do cartoon shows, and at the same time I'd probably be on a sitcom or a dramatic television show.
People in Britain see Richard Quest as a kind of an offensive cartoon character.
Not a lot of people get to say, ‘I'm a cartoon character.'
I see our veterans as American heroes, not as cartoon characters.
I don't see why it's such a stretch for distributors, buyers, and studios to put cartoon characters into adult situations on film.
Beanie and Cecil was the first cartoon I remember watching and I think there are analogies.
My cartoon strips in college strived to have the Schulzian mix of surrealism and Charlie Brown angst. A bit of that combo shows up in 'Up.'
'Adult Swim' on the Cartoon Network is unbelievable. And 'South Park' continues to do great stuff. And 'Family Guy' and the various other Seth MacFarlane projects are amazing.
