“Okay, maybe my dad did steal Itchy, but so what? Animation is built on plagiarism! If it weren’t for someone plagiarizing ‘The Honeymooners’, we wouldn’t have ‘The Flintstones’. If someone hadn’t ripped of ‘Sgt. Bilko’, there’d be no ‘Top Cat’! Huckleberry Hound, Chief Wiggum, Yogi Bear? Ha! Andy Griffith, Edward G. Robinson, Art Carney. Your honor, you take away our right to steal ideas, where are they gonna come from?” – Roger Meyers Jr.
Happy (real) Birthday Alex Rocco!
