->''"Plots? We never bothered with plots. They were just a series of gags strung together. And not very funny, i'm afraid. Usually there were three animators on a cartoon. If we were working on a Mutt and Jeff cartoon, one of us might say, 'Let's make a picture about Hawaii.' Okay, fine. So each of us would work on a third of the picture. A couple of weeks later, we'd make a hookup. 'Where have you got 'em?' I'd ask. The other animator might have Mutt and Jeff on a surfboard at the end of his sequence. So I'd begin mine on a surfboard."''

->''"The early days of animation in NewYork were an exciting time. The business attracted a strange breed--signpainters, salesman, cartoonists--most of them failures. The rule was: if you could hold a pencil, you could animate. But we were a dedicated lot. We were pioneering a new industry, and having a vast amount of fun doing it. And money. As a kid I was making a hundred and fifty dollars a week. Some animators made four hundred dollars a week. Big money in those days."''
