052 053 054 055

There is some nice, cute animation by Frank Thomas here, as well as very few "let's retire soon" scenes. There are several scenes that are classic Frank that I enjoy very much, including scenes 23-25. Frank shares a few scenes with his old assistant Dale Oliver who did a fine job (I suspect Frank, as supervising animator, might have done some posing here), and there are fine scenes by Randy Cartwright. Ollie's Chief could have used some better breakdowns and tighter cleanup. And there clearly were a few facial construction problems on the end of scene 21...
