Say what you will about Butch Hartman, but at the bare minimum: his transgressions as a person actually sting more considering how many works of his I actually enjoyed. John K being a colossal fuckup and a predator to boot doesn't really sting all that much by comparison. Though with this said, still kinda surprised how he's still walking around despite being a confirmed kiddy diddler but that's Hollywood for ya.
Not to go off-topic, but can somebody tell me about what happened with Butch Hartman? All over the internet I see people constantly shitting on him but not actually saying what he did to make them mad.

If we may keep on topic...

There's no doubt in my mind that's he's racist.

There's no way someone who idolizes mid-20th century culture as much as he does isn't also sympathetic with it's attitudes about race.
I have already talked about how John is a really big fan of "Coal Black and de Sebben Dwarfs." And, of course, the big-lipped cannibals presented with apparently no irony in the He-Hog pilot.

He also used to call chicken "n----r food." (As John would have written it on his blog...)

Cans without Labels really does show on why John K's philosophy of not having a different pose/face for each frame is a really atrocious idea in practice. Half the time I have no idea what I am even looking at because it is so inconsistent and doesn't mesh well.
When you watch the Bob Clampett cartoons that John got the idea from, you realize that in those each pose/face is related. They flow naturally from one pose to the next, instead of looking like someone having a seizure.

John basically started as someone with all of Clampett's worst personality traits, a fraction of the talent, and then degenerated from there.

John K did a commentary for the Great Piggy Bank Robbery. I recommend watching this in the background while you see the actual visuals of the cartoon. Or just enjoy The Great Piggy Bank Robbery it is sincerely one of the best animations ever made.

You're right that classic Looney Tunes the animation is so fluid that each exaggerated face flows into another beautifully, but it's not just that it's the design of Daffy Duck which is just an excellent character. Take isolated animation cels and its still Daffy, a lovable hilarious character.

John K doesn't like making appealing designs, he knows how to do them, he successfully can translate a lovable character like Hank Hill into the Spumco style but he loves his gross and abusive George Liquor. The two appear in this UFC Promo video. It's amusing that Hank asks George "How do you do all that crap with your face?" https://vimeo.com/187722817

This promo is way better than Cans Without Labels, I'm guessing because John K didn't have the liberty to procrastinate and because he undoubtedly hoped UFC would keep commissioning work.

I dunno if it is just taste, but I've always found a better example of the great animation in Bob Clampett's cartoons to be The Big Snooze or Kitty Kornered, mostly because I feel they have better writing than The Great Piggy Bank Robbery (it's really fucking good, but Ive always felt it kind of had a lacking climax), which I feel is overrated as fuck. One would certainly recommend those 2 to John, Mr. John "Animation Writers Suck Ass" Kricalufski. Not only would he be getting great animation, but also wittier dialogue instead of puns and visual gags in a rushed climax.

He made comments that are really akward in retrospect

I think Ren and Stimpy are appealing designs. They're iconic. They're the best designs John's ever come up with.

They're also just fun to draw.

They are, but has he been drawing them appealingly lately?

They weren’t particularly appealing in Adult Party Cartoon, and God knows the notebook doodles he’s selling for $150 are little better.

No, Bob Clampett is the one that draws them looking appealing.

EDIT: I meant Bob Camp, BOB CAMP!
