"I felt awful when I saw how my work on Gulliver had been mangled by half-assed inking and bad in-betweening. If I hadn't signed a contract, I would have left on the spot."
Shamus Culhane, referring to his work on Max Fleischer's Gulliver’s Travels.

This is kind of a delicate subject, but: I feel like there’s been a marked decline in the quality of the Apartment 3 G art over the past year or so; artist Frank Bolle will be turning 91 this year and I wonder how much longer he’ll be up for doing the strip. Today Tommie has wandered so far off-model that it seems that even the syndicate colorists have failed to recognize her and given her the wrong hair color. Honestly, the strip could use the infusion of new energy from a younger artist like the ones who took over Judge Parker and Gil Thorp in the past decade. It would’ve been particularly nice to have someone new in place in time for the steamy shower lesbian three-way Apartment 3-G fans have been waiting for literally since the day the strip launched in 1961.

Madam Tussauds in Las Vegas unveiled their first Nicki Minaj wax figure yesterday and well, I guess those bitches were on a tight deadline and an even tighter budget, because that doesn’t even come close to looking like her in the face. 2006 Nicki Minaj looks more like current day Nicki Minaj than that wax figure does and that’s saying everything. Yes, that wax figure’s ass is probably made of the same materials that Nicki’s actual ass is made of, but the similarities end there.

"Lady, what the hell is up with your head?! Seriously, what is up with it?! Honestly, it's bigger than that giant Eileen head from Silent Hill 4! Geez, what is up with the art for this book?! Seriously lady, somebody needs to photoshop that thing back to the right size, because right now that melon has scared me more than the demons, monsters and undead wife!"
Linkara as Dr. Troy Abernathy on the artwork of Silent Hill: Dying Inside

Snowflake: You fool! Do you realize what you have done??
Takahashi: You started the fight scene! Now we're all going to be drawn by the... 3rd String Backup Animation Team!!
Joey: Hey, Kaiba. Since Marik entered the tournament under a fake name, shouldn't he be disqualified?
Kaiba: The only person who should be disqualified around here is whoever made Tristan black in this shot.
Tristan: [having darker skin than usual] Don't you be hatin' on my blackface, playa!
Yu-Gi-Oh! The Abridged Series, episode 43: "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mai"

Mr. Smitty: What's wrong with this picture?
Rocko: Uh, Bunnyman's got three whiskers?
Mr. Smitty: Yeah.
Rocko: But everyone knows Bunnyman has four whiskers.
Barley: The shotgun looks like a fucking 70's station wagon.
Spike And Barley Play, regarding the looks of the shotgun in the Doom II version of the game.

"I present to you the fairest maiden... what the hell is wrong with your face?!"

Shadow the Hedgehog: I take orders from no-one. I do as I decide.
Danny: (imitating Shadow) I don't even have to have my mouth move while I talk.

"If you can recognize the character, it's on-model."
