::[Jon]could have just kept animating. I'm sure all the animators at Startoons appreciate getting the chance to do good work and what you exchanged of yourself to get it for them.
Without trying to sound too much like an ass-kiss, let me just say that without Jon going to get the work for us, just about every guy at Startoons (myself included) would not be where they are today. Sure, some of us may have possessed the skills to execute the work, but not the contacts, resources, and let's face it, the balls to get out there and tell WB he could animate a 1/2 hour TV show by himself before having a staff to speak of. Bigger men than me owe their carreers to McClenahan. Even ones who've been layed off by him.
::Not every bit of bad news is a call to arms, sometimes it's a time to reflect on what you've been given and just once in a while say thank you.
I think I just did.
