During the 1990s, he somehow ended up writing and producing a string of more family-oriented comedies, including the live-action versions of ''Disney/OneHundredAndOneDalmatians'' and ''Film/DennisTheMenace'', and the remake of ''Film/MiracleOnThirtyFourthStreet''. Experiencing a severe case of ArtistDisillusionment after the death of his friend, actor Creator/JohnCandy, in 1994, he would become a [[ReclusiveArtist recluse]], and the rest of his screenplays would be written under the pseudonym [[Literature/TheCountOfMonteCristo Edmond Dantes]] (also used for 1992's ''Film/{{Beethoven}}''). His last film was the 2008 comedy ''Film/DrillbitTaylor''.
