Prod. UM45 - Donald and Pluto

The first film to feature Donald Duck in a starring role, we find him as a plumber, with Pluto getting into scrapes with a magnet. Animated by Al Eugster, Shamus Culhane, Bill Roberts, Fred Spencer and Norm Ferguson, this short was directed by Ben Sharpsteen.
Released 09/12/1936...
Folks, I will do my best to find more quality stuff to put up here, please bear with me if I lapse a day once in a while...

You've given so much , that there's nothing to "forgive" if you lapse for a day or a week or a month (although I hope you keep posting your treasures on a regular basis !) . I want to once again thank you for sharing so generously from the information you've collected over the years.

Hopefully , you, Michael Sporn, Mark Mayerson, Mike Barrier and others have started a trend wherein we'll see more drafts posted on both shorts and features and gain a renewed appreciation for the master animators we did know about as well as the ones that some of us are just now discovering from being able to identify their onscreen work from the scenes credited to them in the drafts.

Thanks Hans, for posting the drafts to this hilarious cartoon. A whole cartoon centered around Pluto's ass. :)

I had never heard of Fred Spencer (I'm quite ignorant when it comes to Disney animators and history) but his turned out to be my favorite scenes. Culhane only did some minor work here. Only a second or two here and there. Was he still just Roberts assistant at this point?

I always love seeing these drafts.
