* CreatorWorship: Williams has his detractors, for certain, but he's otherwise ''highly'' respected, with some of the biggest names in hand-drawn animation owing him their careers, many saying that they "never worked harder" than when they worked for him, and few are willing to speak ill of him.

* HypeBacklash: A number of industry people feel that he puts more emphasis on the animation looking pretty than telling a story (even fans have admitted that [[JustHereForGodzilla they only watch his stuff for the animation]]), the most common criticism of both ''WesternAnimation/RaggedyAnnAndAndyAMusicalAdventure'' and ''WesternAnimation/TheThiefAndTheCobbler'' being scenes that [[{{Padding}} go on way too long]] just for the sake of [[GratuitousSpecialEffects making the awesome animation even]] ''[[GratuitousSpecialEffects more]]'' [[GratuitousSpecialEffects awesome]]. Others have criticized his seemingly [[PrimaDonnaDirector harsh work ethics]], saying that his passion comes as much from [[SuperOCD a lack of self-confidence]] as it does artistic vision. In his defense, as much as he's been known to push his animators past the point of their credibility and take a lot of the credit for himself, he has ''always'' name-dropped his best staff members and repeatedly invited them back to work for him.

* HypeBacklash: Inevitably. Specifically, a number of industry people feel as though he puts far too much emphasis on the animation looking pretty than telling a story (even fans have admitted that [[JustHereForGodzilla they only watch his stuff for the animation]]) and have even criticized his seemingly [[BadBoss harsh work ethics]], saying that his passion comes as much from [[SuperOCD a lack of self-confidence]] as it does a genuine love of the art. In his defense, as much as he's been known to push his animators past the point of their credibility and [[PrimaDonnaDirector take a lot of the credit for himself]], he has ''always'' name-dropped his best staff members and repeatedly invited them back to work for him.

* MagnumOpus: ''WesternAnimation/TheThiefAndTheCobbler'' was meant to be this for him in the traditional sense (i.e., "the piece you create once you've mastered your craft"). Even in it's incomplete form, most agree that what was accomplished still counts. The animation for ''Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit'', is usually cited as his best ''completed'' work.
