* UsefulNotes/AdobeFlash: Switched to it when he started work on ''[[WesternAnimation/FostersHomeForImaginaryFriends Foster's...]]'' since it allows for faster and more expressive moment on [[LimitedAnimation a television budget]]. Every animation from him since then has been done in this style, though he has switched to UsefulNotes/ToonBoom for ''Wander Over Yonder''.
** By his own admission, he's a better designer than he is an animator, which may have something to do with this.

He met and eventually married Creator/LaurenFaust, who worked as producer and writer for ''Powerpuff Girls'' and ''Foster's Home''. There was also a short lived project on Cartoon Network he and Rob Renzetti created called ''WesternAnimation/{{Cartoonstitute}}'', which was supposed to be a successor to the ''WesternAnimation/WhatACartoonShow'' on TV, but it got put quietly on CN's video service instead. He left Cartoon Network in 2009, and later worked on ''WesternAnimation/WanderOverYonder'', [[http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/news/tv/la-et-disney-animation-20120312,0,7335573.story which got picked up by the Disney Channel]] and premiered on September 13, 2013. That show was canceled after two seasons due to ExecutiveMeddling, a first for [=McCracken=] (He left after the fourth season of ''Powerpuff Girls'' which carried on without him for two more seasons. But was allowed to do a special which closed out the original run of the show, and he voluntarily ended ''Foster's...'' after six seasons). He is currently developing a new show for Disney.

He is married to fellow animator Creator/LaurenFaust. The two met when she joined the writing staff of ''Powerpuff Girls'' in season three and have since collaborated on all of his subsequent shows. They presently have one daughter together.

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: Like fellow Hanna-Barbera producer GenndyTartakovsky, he enjoys this trope. The Radar entry of ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'' page is an excellent example.

* BerserkButton: Less "berserk" and more "pet peeve," but he really doesn't like uninformed Twitter users perpetually asking about the ''[=PowerPuff=] Girls'' reboot (whether or not he was involved, his opinions of it).

** Same thing goes for real life as well: he and LaurenFaust ''never'' display romantic affection for one another publicly (to the point that their only publicly released wedding photo is of them fist-bumping).
