*Career Outline:*
It seems that John Loy got his start in the industry by writing for DC Comics (Warner Bros.) for *The Super Powers Team: Galactic Guardians *in 1985. Loy is perhaps most famous for writing on the original *Alvin and the Chipmunks* animations. In my research, I have found that he has many mixed reviews on his writing abilities as he is very critically judged for his writing on some of the *Teen Titans Go! *animations.

*Comments On Style:*
As a result of my research, John Loy has had a fantastic career as a screenwriter. His style is fun and quirky, as it shows with the *Alvin and the Chipmunk* animations. He was criticized however, for his writing style in *Teen Titans Go! *when the public claimed the he ripped off the “A whole New World” from Aladdin.
