John K quote

Recently I was watching my DVD of  Ren & Stimpy.  On one of the documentaries John K sez:

“I go back to the old tradition of comedy, where you work on the personalities of the characters and then just put them in any situation you want.”

As a bonus, Eddie Fitzgerald says this:

“John has a philosophy of never repeating a drawing… never repeating a gag.”

That simple rule made Ren & Stimpy look completely fresh every time. Entirely unlike all the other animated shows who pay gangs of supervising artists to make everybody slavishly follow the model sheets.
