The Simpsons was a pretty heavy influence, in that it sort of redefined, after The Flintstones, what else television animation can be. I would be remiss if I didn't mention them. Here and there there are comic influences like Jackie Gleason, The Far Side, Woody Allen...lot of different sources. As far as an influence on my career, certainly the Rhode Island School of Design had a pretty darn heavy influence. Not in one specific way, but it definitely changed my course.
