Walt Disney said “We have created characters and animated them in the dimension of depth, revealing through them to our perturbed world that the things we have in common far outnumber and outweigh those that divide us.”

Outside of Walt himself there are few people who have brought together and united more animators in the history of the genre than Craig "Spike" Decker and Mike Gribble, known to all as Spike & Mike. They created an animation festival that helped launch the careers of John Lasseter, Peter Lord, Will Vinton, Bill Plympton and Mike Judge to name just a few. Their Spike & Mike festival had an enormous impact on animation that was felt the world over. The festival was known as much for the breakthrough animation it presented as the outrageous antics of the founders.

Walt Disney a dit : « Nous avons créé des personnages et les avons animés en profondeur, faisant prendre conscience à travers eux à notre monde perturbé que les choses que nous avons en commun dépassent de loin celles qui nous divisent. »

Outre Walt lui-même, peu de personnes ont rassemblé et uni plus d'animateurs dans l'histoire de ce genre que Craig « Spike » Decker et Mike Gribble, connus par tous sous le nom de Spike & Mike. Ils ont mis sur pied un festival d'animation qui a aidé à lancer les carrières de John Lasseter, Peter Lord, Will Vinton, Bill Plympton et Mike Judge, pour n'en nommer que quelques-uns. Leur festival était connu tant pour ses animations révolutionnaires que pour les pitreries outrageuses des fondateurs.
