“Stupid dog!” – An interview with John R. Dilworth

In the final of our series of podcasts recorded in New York, we sit down with American animator John R. Dilworth. As well as being the creator of Courage the Cowardly Dog – a series spawned from his Academy Award nominated short The Chicken From Outer Space, Dilworth’s work has appeared on CBS, Showtime, HBO, FOX, Cartoon Network, Nickelodeon and MTV, not to mention his films which have featured in museum programs at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Museum of Modern Art, and the Guggenheim Museum in New York City.  Here he talks about his career to date, how his New York animation studio Stretch Films reacted to 9/11 and why pink is not necessarily the best colour choice for a cartoon dog. Enjoy.
