Recording actors together was something we were always doing on Dr. Katz and on Home Movies, and it seems very, very obvious to me and startling when I find out that other shows don’t record their actors together.

I recommend to anyone doing animation, if you can, if it is at all possible, to get your actors together at the same time. You will have so much more fun, and the fun will – hopefully, you’ll be able to put that on the screen at the end.
