Well he's in his 60's, so I don't blame him for not being as active as he used to be. I've always gotten the sense that he's partially-retired now, and it's not like he has to do anything else given how successful EEnE was. It was more or less the defining work of his career and his magnum opus, so it's not like he can really outdo it at this point.>>110907141
Danny's contributions to animation far outweigh John's. EEnE and R&S are both good shows, but EEnE is just better in terms of writing, visual style, and attention to detail (IE, every character having a unique musical motif that plays when they're the focus of a scene). Danny's strict, prickly demeanor as a showrunner was mostly justified in a way that John's horrible behavior was not. Danny worked extremely hard and pushed his staff to create the best show they possibly could, which is why improv was forbidden. He and his crew made sure the show wouldn't lose focus of its vision. John is a lazy and arrogant slacker who's demonstrated many times that he's incompetent at managing his animation projects and his own life. Most of his career has been him coasting on the good will he earned from taking credit for the hard work other more responsible people did on R&S.
