* CreatorBacklash: Culhane disliked his sole {{Popeye}} directorial effort ''Popeye Meets William Tell'', and mentions it in passing in his biography as being akin to "putting a bow on a wild boar". He was also not proud of his animation for FleischerStudios in the early 1930's, considering it primitive compared to his later work.
** He's also stated that if he hadn't signed a contract when he was working on WesternAnimation/GulliversTravels he would've left on the spot, and that he felt awful seeing how his work had been tampered with in the final film with what he calls "half-assed inking and bad in-betweening". He was also disappointed with how MrBugGoesToTown turned out, feeling that the film didn't live up to it's full potential.
** Culhane also lambasted the Hearst KrazyKat cartoons he did inking work on. In his biography, he likened the screening of their first sound cartoon ("Ratskin", 1929) with the character as being akin to a tornado in a boiler factory. "It was sheer cacophony." The staff gave no reaction to the film, save Culhane himself, who spited it with a sarcastic laugh (which got him left behind when the studio moved elsewhere). In the book "Enchanted Drawings", Culhane's once again gave his humble thoughts on the shorts;

* AnimationAgeGhetto: Culhane discusses this in his book "Animation From Script To Screen". Culhane had an encyclopedic knowledge about animation (as well as other subjects) and pretty eclectic tastes: he praised Creator/RalphBakshi and Creator/RichardWilliams (head animator for ''Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit'', which was a big movie hit at the time), ridiculed the commercially-driven dreck on Saturday morning TV, and tried to present animation as a serious art form indebted to (among others) [[Creator/MichelangeloBuonarroti Michelangelo]] and Creator/SergeiEisenstein. He even warns writers for cartoons never to target children only, because only if you write for adults will you be completely uncondescending. However, his prejudices toward his own profession still show through at times. He assumes that most animators aspire to make people laugh - which would be fine, except that it carries the UnfortunateImplication that cartoons cannot inspire any emotion other than hilarity. He also writes that "very subtle acting may never be possible to meet in this medium."
