"I think Carl [Macek] was unfairly maligned. And the thing is, he would sometimes butt heads with fans and other people in the industry -- he was certainly opinionated.

He did what he had do to get these shows he genuinely loved onto the air."
Tommy Yune, creative director of Harmony Gold USA, quoted by Jeff Yang, The 'Robotech' master (SFGate)
