->''"Our films didn't have a prayer against [[WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes Warners]] or Creator/{{Disney}} or [[Creator/MetroGoldwynMayer [=MGM=]]]. We didn't have writers like [[NoteworthyLooneyTunesStaff Tedd Pierce or Mike Maltese]]--you could lean pretty heavily on those guys. Ben Hardaway, who was in charge of story, couldn't compete with those guys; neither could the other story man, Milt Schaffer, although he had a better idea of structure. It was no secret that Walt Lantz didn't have the money the other guys did. Even Warners probably spent half again as much per cartoon; Disney spent three or four times as much. Still, we managed to do something interesting films, consindering the limitations."''

->''"The fascinating thing about the studio was that there was no story department. They would put a little notice up on the bulletin board saying: 'The next Oswald will take place at the North Pole. Anybody having any gags, please turn them in before such a date.' If you turned in gags regularly, the way TexAvery, Cal Howard, Jack Carr and two or three others of us did, you'd be called into the gag meeting. The group would go into Walt's office and talk about whatever the subject of the cartoon was. Walt would put it into some kind of form and that was the story--no scripts, no storyboards."''
