  1. These interviews paint a picture. Even if he wasn't a sexual deviant, even if he didn't sleep with underage girls, even if he wasn't a complete creep... he's still a wackjob. He was an asshole, a perfectionist driven to madness by his own ambition. He was abusive to his staff and co-workers, his friends, his girlfriend at the time who helped him develop Ren & Stimpy, because he was emotionally abused by his father, and this is ultimately what got him fired from Nickelodeon in the first place. And, in a lot of ways, looking at him is uncomfortable, because if you share even one of his traits, be that his ambition, or his perfectionism, or his temper, all things that apply to me and I'm sure a lot of other creatives, you see a lot of yourself, and you wonder if you might end up the same way he did. It's kind of scary to think about.
