Read What the Professionals Say About
Jeffrey's book, How to Write for Animation


"Jeffrey Scott combines that rarest and most extraordinary of talents--he is a master storyteller, a prolific writer and turns out scripts 'faster than a speeding bullet and more powerful than a locomotive.' He leaves a legacy to the world of animation writing that is unmatched and unparalleled and, fortunately for so many, now memorialized in this excellent book."

PETER ROTH, President, Warner Bros. Television



"Jeffrey Scott has written the definitive sourcebook for anyone interested in the world of animation and script writing. Infused with humor and a love of the craft, this book is filled with the practical information one needs to get started, and is a great resource for producers, directors and executives already in the business."

NANCY KANTER, Vice President Programming, Disney Channel



"Jeffrey Scott is without a doubt the most prolific and accomplished writer of television animation of all time. Action, comedy--he does it all, and very, very well. I LOVED this book! Maybe if I had read it twenty years ago I would have stayed a writer and not become an executive."

ANDY HEYWARD, Chairman, DIC Entertainment



"Jeffrey's book contains everything you need to know about writing for animation and then some. Reading this book is a must for anyone interested in excelling in the field."
