Prod. 2003 - Seq. 4.9 - My Nose!

Frank and Ollie's Pinoke, augmented by Les Clark. In the article by Charles Solomon on AWN, Frank tells the story of the growing nose and the birds - but he didn't mention that Ham Luske, the sequence director, animated the birds - without animation footage credit!
"Different guys did the nest, the leaves and the birds--on the drafts, we had about eight names." Well, it only mentions Thomas & Ham.

Cricket by Kimball first, then Bernie Wolf and John Wesley Elliotte (bet they called him Jack, too). Blue Fairy by Jack Campbell, though in one scene by Ken O'Brien. Layout by Ken Anderson. Note this draft is "After Preview" - Sc. 29-3 "was cut out after preview"...
6667686970
A few other things to note: there are several scenes where the animation footage count is "None." In the first scene, Kimball gets no footage credit, for instance. Why, I wonder? Ollie's Pinoke in cage was a reuse, I gather. We see that generally, effects were credited with 1/8th the scene's length in footage. Also of note is that in sc. 8, Pinoke and Jiminy are animated by Bob Younquist and Walter Clinton. Was this a test? Or just considered so unimportant that it was left to the "lower echelon?"

Maybe the... "before preview" draft had more names on it?
