Butch Hartman: (about parts of his job that he enjoys or doesn't enjoy) I really enjoy the writing process. And the boarding part. These are the story specific aspects of the job and I really enjoy story stuff. But don't get me wrong, I love all of it! The stuff I don't like? Hmmm…having to fix mistakes. That can get very labor intensive sometimes. And dealing with certain employees that don't do their jobs. That can really create an extra burden on everybody.
Butch Hartman: (about what he does if he has spare time) I have no spare time! But on the rare occasion I DO get some, it's always spent with wife and kids. Man they grow up fast! So do the kids!
