#Fact
1He has his own band in LA called "The Backboners".
2His short "Tutu the Superina" was the brainchild of him and NY-based ballerina danger Sally Rousse who helped him create the crime fighting dancer.
3He and Larry Huber were the brain team for "ChalkZone", while Larry had the idea of a boy with magic chalk, Bill had the idea of a world behind the chalk board.
4His "OH Yeah! Cartoons" short "What is Funny?" was based on a series of bumpers he did for HA! Comedy Channel. Coincidentally, Fred Seibert of Frederator Studios was involved with them, back when he was working at an advertisement company Fred/Alan with former partner Alan Goodman, who later contributed through 2 Random! Cartoons shorts; Bronk and Bongo and 6 Monsters (co-created by Seibert himself).
5He laid off Seth MacFarlane ("Family Guy", "American Dad", "Ted") from Cow & Chicken (Bill was vice president of creative director at Hanna Barbera Studios and Seth was a writer for the show) as he thought his writing didn't fit the show's dynamic.
6Several songs from ChalkZone (e.g. "Insect Aside", "Dream A Lotta Dreams") were actually real-life songs Bill wrote himself from earlier albums.
7He was the one who came up with the name "Comedy Central for the famous major-cable network back when he was working at it's precursor, 'HA! Comedy Channel'.
8Great friends with animator Bill Plympton who not only worked along side him on Random! Cartoons (Plympton had Gary Guitar and Burnett had Dr. Froyd) but he was a guest artist on ChalkZone doing 1950s style teens with high hair among others, and was the inspiration for the character in said episode, Drew Yerface who is named after a short of Plympton's work, Your Face.
9He is good friends with Butch Hartman and actually came up with the title for his show "'The Fairly OddParents'".
10His mother, who was an opera singer, was the inspiration for Rudy's mom in ChalkZone.
