Quotes

"I've never formed a barrier between fine art and cartooning. Growing up, I treasured Chinese watercolors, Breughel, Charlie Brown and Terrytoons equally." -- Milton Knight

"Audiences actually wanted a wilder, raunchier Cool World. The premiere audience I saw it with certainly did." -- Milton Knight

"The Grim Reaper is right out of a Max Fleischer cartoon or old Terrytoons, which is why I hired and love Milton Knight the artist. He understands totally the Uncle Remus fable like qualities behind Fleischer and Terrytoons. Milton Knight is probably the purest artist of that style in the business. He has a hard time because studios think he is old fashioned...but that's the point." -- Ralph Bakshi
