I Have a Question John Dilworth

In which Chris Robinson asks animators profound and inane questions that have little to do with animation. Today's guest is US animator and funny guy, John Dilworth (Courage the Cowardly Dog)

John Dilworth is an animator, director and actor. He is best known as the producer, director, writer, and creator of the animated television series Courage the Cowardly Dog. His other acclaimed short films include Dirty Birdy and Life in Transition. He agreed to meet with me inside a taciturn cave with strict instructions to communicate only via subtle head movements and rabbit signs on a Saturday in October around 1907.

I get the greatest pleasure from… laughter. Especially from love.

The trait I like least about myself is… My levels of compassion…

The book I value above all others is… Impossible to claim only one… Cicero’s letter to his son, De Officiis.

A (non-family member) person I have high respect for is.... Nedd Willard. High levels of compassion and tolerance.

The song that makes me tingle is…. ‘La Charreada’ sung by Sandra Glez.

The funniest thing that happened to me….

A laughing trauma during the vocal recording of the aliens from Bunny Bashing. William Hohauser and I could not breathe, tears obscured our vision, spleen spasms. Today, if we recall that glorious two-day binge we suffer the same.
