Frank Tashlin QUOTES / QUOTATIONS
A lot of our humor came from Jack Benny, and I'll tell you how. Jack Benny was on the radio Sunday night, that's when Jack was very, very big.
Quotation of Frank Tashlin
All I was ever interested in was applying - see, wherever I am, wherever I'm working at the time, my mind and heart are ahead, somewhere else. I am never where I'm at.
Quotation of Frank Tashlin
But I think what I really wanted all the time was to go to Disney's, and I went to Disney's then.

Quotation of Frank Tashlin
I did a story that one of the directors there was going to direct, but before they had a chance to direct it, they were all thrown out, and so this was an existing story, so that when I got in charge, I directed it.
Quotation of Frank Tashlin
I got into a fight with Schlesinger's assistant, a fellow by the name of Henry Binder. I shouldn't have gotten into a fight with him, because he was an intelligent, bright fellow - for an executive.
Quotation of Frank Tashlin
I got into a fight with Walt Disney: I always pick the wrong people to fight with.

Quotation of Frank Tashlin
I think Ted did the story with me on The Major Lied Till Dawn; in fact, that was Ted's voice, for the Major, I think. He was very, very bright.

I was just terribly awed at being at Disney's. We were happy if Disney took something from us.
Quotation of Frank Tashlin
I was making a hundred and fifty at the time, which was what the directors got: Freleng made more, he made more than any of us, but a hundred and fifty was the going rate.
Quotation of Frank Tashlin
I would never once think I was ever ahead of Tex, any time, anywhere, anyhow. Tex, I thought, was just marvelous. I'm surprised that you say that.
Quotation of Frank Tashlin
I'm amazed when I look at these Road Runner things. The guys are still hitting walls and leaving imprints, they still fall down - I can't believe that stuff is still going on.
Quotation of Frank Tashlin
Oh, I hated Porky Pig. I thought he was a terrible character.
Quotation of Frank Tashlin
One of the reasons I wanted to go to Disney's was to try to help the cause of the union.
Quotation of Frank Tashlin
Pinocchio was being worked on when I went there. I went to some gag meetings, I know, but I don't remember if I made a contribution.
Quotation of Frank Tashlin
Roy Williams came up with the idea for Clock Cleaners - here were three different characters, they all had their own stories, they were all interwoven.

Schlesinger brought me out from New York, and I worked there.
Quotation of Frank Tashlin
So we started this union, and it was tough going: everyone was afraid to join.
Quotation of Frank Tashlin
Ted was a big devil with the women; oh my God, he cut a big swath through the inking and painting department. He was our Cary Grant.
Quotation of Frank Tashlin
Ted was the first president of the Screen cartoonists Guild, as it was called then, and I was vice president, and we used to meet in cellars - it was like Communist cell meetings.
Quotation of Frank Tashlin
Tex, I guess, was really the one who developed wild, wild jokes.

That was the big secret. Walt would do things over and over again, with no regard to money, to get things perfect.
Quotation of Frank Tashlin
That was the reason I went to Disney's: we couldn't crack them. I was able to make some inroads over there, and finally we went on strike, and they had to join the union.
Quotation of Frank Tashlin
The rabbit started doing that - 'What's up, doc?' Bing, door closes, out. We'd get all of this from Jack Benny.

The second time I was at Schlesinger's, Chuck was directing, and I thought his things were - for me - terribly slow.
Quotation of Frank Tashlin
The union; and I wanted to learn what went on over there. Of course, what went on over there was simply one thing, and that was Walt himself.
Quotation of Frank Tashlin
There's always been some moron-who usually went by the name of 'producer' - who would have to justify his existence, and interfere.
Quotation of Frank Tashlin
These guys went on a sit-down strike at that time, I remember, to protest my removal: it was the first sit-down strike in pictures.
Quotation of Frank Tashlin
These movie stars would go right past our window; and I had a camera, and I used to tell them to stop so I could take their picture. And I'd have them developed, and I'd have them autographed. I'd send these back home, I was a big man.
Quotation of Frank Tashlin
They didn't know what to do with a fellow by the name of 'Ducky' Nash - Clarence Nash, he was the voice of Donald Duck - because when they weren't recording Donald Duck, what do you do with the fellow who's the voice of Donald Duck?
Quotation of Frank Tashlin
They had made some brilliant movies; I think these are the finest examples of great cartoon stories: Moose Hunters and Clock Cleaners.
Quotation of Frank Tashlin
They said that Walt had once worked as a waiter, and it taught him humility, and he said everyone should have a little dose of humility. That was the story, I don't know the truth of this.
Quotation of Frank Tashlin
Those jokes are all forty years old. There's no originality.
Quotation of Frank Tashlin
Usually, the director had the germ of what he wanted to do - at least, what the picture should be about.
Quotation of Frank Tashlin
We developed a character, which looked something like him. Well, I started using him in magazine cartoons, as a throwaway character, and then when I came out here, I developed him as a pantomime comic strip, and that's all that that was.
Quotation of Frank Tashlin
We got the characters, we got everything. But I think of everyone there, Tex was the great innovator. If there was any innovation, it was Tex.
Quotation of Frank Tashlin
We really stole from all over, and perhaps, as it came out of the assembly line, we put some originality to it. But really, we got it from all over.
Quotation of Frank Tashlin
What it's done for me, it's made what we were doing in those days a little more important. It's given me the feeling that maybe we weren't just goofing off, maybe we were doing something.
Quotation of Frank Tashlin
When I came out here, I was a nut movie fan; you know, to see real movie stars - a real gauche kid.
Quotation of Frank Tashlin
When I left Leon's, I was making a hundred and fifty a week, and when I got into Disney's, I was making fifty. But it was worth it for what I wanted to do.
Quotation of Frank Tashlin
