William Joyce QUOTES / QUOTATIONS
Almost everything in 'A Day With Wilbur Robinson' has some basis in truth. And yes, my sister did pay me to feed her grapes while she talked to her boyfriend on the phone.
Quotation of William Joyce
And I was lucky enough to have teachers that really, really looked out for me and really encouraged all that. And in rural Louisiana, that was a rare thing back then.
Quotation of William Joyce
And they're also very good at math, these super boogers, and so they teach Billy the ways of mathematics.
Quotation of William Joyce
But if you really love to write and you really love to tell stories and you really love to draw, you just have to keep doing it no matter what anybody says.
Quotation of William Joyce
I did have great teachers that saw that I loved to tell stories and saw that I loved to draw and encouraged that.
Quotation of William Joyce
I did not win and in fact I was called into the principal's office for a consultation with my parents. But that was the beginning of my literary career.
Quotation of William Joyce
I have known lots of adults who enjoyed similar enthusiasms as a kid and weren't encouraged and then didn't go anywhere with it and so they're unhappy in their jobs as adults.
Quotation of William Joyce
I just took the idea that King Kong was too big for everything and reversed it and put George in a land of giants, which is basically what every kid goes through anyway - that, you know, the world is made for grownups, for tall people, for the giants.
Quotation of William Joyce
I like stirring things up. I'm on the side of the kids more than I am on the adults. And occasionally I find some adults that have that same mischievous streak, so I don't get in too much trouble.
Quotation of William Joyce
I raised frogs every spring in our house from tadpoles and by end of summer our house was overrun with frogs.
Quotation of William Joyce
I wanted to do this blue skies and perfect days and robots and to do a show where you got to like do stuff you can't do in real life.
Quotation of William Joyce
I've always liked getting away with just a little bit of what you're not supposed to. Like my first book, Billy's Booger, got me in trouble with the principal's office.
Quotation of William Joyce
If you really want to tell stories, do it and don't be dissuaded.
Quotation of William Joyce
It seemed perfectly plausible. So I celebrated him in that book by making the uncle genuinely being from outer space and re-arriving in his spaceship. It's all that stuff that happened.
Quotation of William Joyce
It was done entirely in green crayon and it was for a contest at my school to see what kid could write and illustrate the best kid's book.
Quotation of William Joyce
It was like, all I did was draw some pictures of a booger and write fiction about these boogers' adventures. And I managed to endear myself to all my classmates, but drive the grownups crazy.
Quotation of William Joyce
It was very matter of fact. It was like, "Well, you know, when I was traveling intergalactically last week and met some of my friends on Mars... They may come visit this weekend."
Quotation of William Joyce
Rolie Polie Olie for me has always been a combination of several things. It's like "Leave It to Beaver" with robots and a little bit of Mickey Mouse.
Quotation of William Joyce
So I just combined the two. Yes, I had an uncle who swore he was from outer space. And he was so convincing. I was like, "Why would a grownup lie about that?"
Quotation of William Joyce
So if you're a robot and you're living on this planet, you can do things that you can't do in real life - things that you wished you could do: like fly; like have a car that flies; like have furniture that is alive.
Quotation of William Joyce
So you know, I'm in there every day and making sure that it's what it should be, and giving it that sort of nth degree of "wouldn't it be cool if-ness" that I have so much fun with.
Quotation of William Joyce
That's not every kid's dream, but certainly a dream that you can sometimes have - or, wouldn't it be cool if. I guess Rolie Polie Olie is a show entirely made up of "wouldn't it be cool if."
Quotation of William Joyce
The first book I ever wrote was in fourth grade and it was called 'Billy's Booger.' It was an autobiographical piece about a kid who was really bad at math.
Quotation of William Joyce
The good thing about George is, and the good thing about my arrangement with Nelvana and even with PBS is that I control it. They've been completely supportive of me designing everything and overseeing all the stories.
Quotation of William Joyce
The only road to the highest stations in this country is that of the law.
Quotation of William Joyce
Their toys are alive and can sometimes come to their aid, or get lost and Olie has to find them. They go to other planets. They go to the ice cream planet.
Quotation of William Joyce
When I was a little kid, I kind of perceived everything as having a life of its own. You know, chairs and furniture and stuff.
Quotation of William Joyce
You know, I hate to give advice because my life has been so odd that almost nothing that's happened to me can apply.
