Added DiffLines:

* AuthorAppeal: Seems to really like Russian culture, as ''An American Tail'' opens up in Russia, and both ''Anastasia'' and its prequel ''Bartok the Magnificent'' are set in different periods of the country. (In fact, with the latter film, it started out because him and Gary Goldman wanted to do a film about Baba Yaga, a witch from Russian mythology, before the executives at Fox asked them to make a spinoff film involving Bartok. The two projects ended up being merged.)

Added DiffLines:

* TechnicianVersusPerformer: The performer to Gary Goldman's technician. Bluth claims that he's better at coming up with broad ideas while Goldman is better at production. That said, it's clear that both their strengths lay more in technique than in story. The stories are there, but there's clearly more attention given to the animation.

** His darker works from TheEighties compared to Disney at the time, although they're ''nowhere'' as dark as the films of his other competition, Creator/RalphBakshi. Which is saying something, when you consider [[Disney/TheFoxAndTheHound the]] [[Disney/TheBlackCauldron movies]] [[Disney/TheGreatMouseDetective Disney]] [[WesternAnimation/TheBraveLittleToaster put]] [[Disney/OliverAndCompany out]] in the 80's (''Disney/TheLittleMermaid'' excluded).
