Re: I'll have to say--
Yeah, that's right on! I know that a lot of people are annoyed by B&B, but man, they had their moments. And he proved that he had more depth than all that by creating the best primetime animated show, at the moment, KOTH.

Mike Judge. The creator of Beavis and Butt-Head and King of the Hill started out as a blues bassist/electronics engineer, and before that doing gruntwork like pulling up tree stumps and flipping burgers (which inspired his work) before he hit it big a decade ago with his cartoon shorts about two scuzzy, shiftless adolescents in a craphole Texas town. That's what I consider a role model--someone who rose up out of obscurity to find success and enlighten/corrupt the minds of America (depending on how you see him-- ).
I also like Timm and Bakshi. The New adventures of Mighty Mouse was an awesome toon. And I think it set the stage for Ren and Stimpy.

"I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain." -Bene Gesserit litany against fear
