The New Straits Times has published an interview with Craig McCracken. The formatting is badly mucked up, but from line breaks and semantical clues, you should be able to tell who is speaking. Below an excerpt.
What was your favourite cartoon as a child? Why?
I always loved Underdog. I’d been into superheroes since I was really young and there was something about Underdog that really spoke to me. He wasn’t who you would expect a hero to be and even though he messed up a lot and it wasn’t easy for him to save the day, he always kept trying and never gave up. I think that theme is something that carries through all of my work, that idea of the underdog. My shows often are about unlikely heroes.
