Hyperbole is something I'd better avoid.
Literally overnight, I became an animator... and one that was well-known.
It's 85 million dollars and they got to be really careful because they are going to need me.
I was born in 1940 in Minnesota and grew up in the country... dirt roads, swamps, lakes, woods.

John Cleese was with a group called Cambridge Circus, who had come to New York, and we became friends. Years later that produced a certain team effort.
I was getting frustrated with America. It's interesting how as simple a thing as, like, letting your hair grow longer changed in the world in those days.
In advertising, I was frustrated by having to deal with the client. It was the only time I really worked in a proper office, and I didn't like it-simple as that.
