Prod. 2082 - Sleeping Beauty - Seq. 19.0

Having a moment here, in the warm Copenhagen summer night,
I thought it might be interesting to have a look at, who did the "FIGHT" sequence, the climax in Sleeping Beauty, especially because it is one of the most shown ones in TV.
No "stars", no "Old Men", except for Sequence Director Woolie Reitherman. Instead, lots of hard working character and effects animators: Ken Hultgren, Ambi Paliwoda, Bill Keil, Dick Lucas, Eric Cleworth, Dan MacManus, George Goepper...
Layout by Basil Davidovich. Final draft dated 11/5/1958.

Production 2082. The only production number from a Disney feature that remains stuck in my head. I guess it's because I wrote down that darn number so many times.

By the way, I had the pleasure of having Ken Anderson pitch the first pass of the dragon fight to me one evening at the Disney studio.

Maybe you have some special memories of a certain sequence in 2082 that you'd like to see the draft of, to 'structure' those memories?

memories, memories. I did some work in sequence eight working for Stan Green who was Milt Kahl's key assistant.

The majority of my work on Sleeping Beauty was with Freddy Hellmich's clean-up unit. We did a lot of the fairy stuff in the cottage, including the cake baking, and the subsequent fight over the color of Rose's gown.

A lot of animators involved, including Frank Thomas, Hank Tanus, and Hal Ambro.
