Quotation of John Kricfalusi
All artists have their own styles and my studio is one of the very few that allow the artists to use elements of their styles in the cartoons.

Even the cartoonists and animators who were mostly self-taught looked up much higher than you have to look today.

From 20 years of experience hiring artists out of the schools, I know-they get worse every year. They're absolutely ridiculously retarded now.

George Liquor is really the richest character I have. I'm amazed there aren't 365 episodes about him on TV already.
Quotation of John Kricfalusi
Give me $100,000 and I'll do a cartoon that might be better than anything anyone else is doing. It's talent and inventiveness, is what it it is.

I don t think cartoons are only for kids, but I think kids will love anything as long as it's visually interesting.

Quotation of John Kricfalusi
I have no optimism for Saturday morning. As long as there are networks, there's going to be garbage.
Quotation of John Kricfalusi
I influenced the BG style by not being able to draw perspective. The BG artists developed cool graphic painting styles to make my bad backgrounds look like they were that way on purpose.

Quotation of John Kricfalusi
I would never want to try doing Bugs Bunny cartoons. That could only be done by the guys who did it.
Quotation of John Kricfalusi
I'll let you in on a secret: I can't stand Jay Ward. I hate being compared to Rocky and Bullwinkle. It's just a different style of humor.

Quotation of John Kricfalusi
One guy records the voices, another guy times the storyboard, another guy times the sheets, one guy is the story editor. All these jobs should be covered by the director.
Quotation of John Kricfalusi
One of my complaints about the show is that it's not wild enough. It's ambiguous.
Quotation of John Kricfalusi
One of the big problems this time is that we were doing it in two countries. I had to jump back and forth between LA and Canada, training two crews of young people.

Open a magazine from the 1930s and '40s and look at the illustrations in it. There's nobody alive that could touch the way they could draw back then.
Quotation of John Kricfalusi
Schools are really bad now. Schools are not only bad in reading, writing and arithmetic, they're worse in cultural aspects, like in music and art. They don't teach you anything.

Quotation of John Kricfalusi
The Nielsens are all screwed up this year. Every kid I talk to loves the show. I can't figure out why the ratings are just average.
Quotation of John Kricfalusi
The only character I ever remember actually creating in a flash of inspiration was George Liquor. God planted that in my head in an instant.
Quotation of John Kricfalusi
The problem wasn't the design. It's a caricature of Jerry Mouse. A couple of the early directors totally buggered it up because it was a caricature.
Quotation of John Kricfalusi
The storyboard department doesn't talk to the layout department, which doesn't talk to the writing department. They're all jealous of each other.
Quotation of John Kricfalusi
There's tons of people with talent; it's the system that's all screwed up.
Quotation of John Kricfalusi
They're idiots when it comes to figuring out how to get a hit on the air. If you sell them the show and just do what you believe in, you'll get a hit.
Quotation of John Kricfalusi

When we started Mighty Mouse, they went crazy. They took the opportunity to go from layout artists to being animators.

Why did The Smurfs become a hit? A bunch of blue guys is all I can see there. There's nothing in the show that could possibly make it a hit. There's no control over it.
Quotation of John Kricfalusi
With the department system, nobody knows what the cartoon's about until it's finished.

You buy any book on color theory today, and it's just complete poppycock. Everybody comes out of school painting pink, purple and green. The whole damn cartoon industry has pink purple and green on their mind.
Quotation of John Kricfalusi
You can draw Family Guy when you're 10 years old. You don't have to get any better than that to become a professional cartoonist. The standards are extremely low.
Quotation of John Kricfalusi
You don't want to get them mad because they won't buy your show next year.
Quotation of John Kricfalusi
You meet young artists now and try to teach them something, and they say, I could do it that way if I wanted to, but this is my style.
