Prod. 2718 (2016) - Cold Blooded Penguin

Directed by Bill Roberts, with Mike Holoboff as his assistant director, and laid out by Hugh Hennesy (yes, the cop in Duck Pimples), this sequence from The Three Caballeros, one of the most entertaining, is entirely animated by Milt Kahl, Harvey Toombs and Bill Justice, with effects by Josh Meador and Ed Aardal.

This draft dated 5/20/44 by Dorris [Pugsley]...
Comments, anyone? It's been a while...

I will be in Annecy from noon tomorrow until Thursday night. If you will be there, too, let me know!
I may not get much posting done, though!

I was curious about Bill Roberts. His last two credits at Disney are "The Three Caballeros"(1945), and "Fun and Fancy Free" 1947.

Do you know if he retired after 1947 , moved on to a different animation studio , or did he die ? I recall that he is mentioned somewhat prominently in The Illusion of Life for his work in the development of character animation in the 1930's , but there is no information on his later work at Disney or when he left Disney .

Jack Kinney writes in his book:
"BILL ROBERTS - A director, animator, and a very good businessman, Bill left Disney to go into real estate and construction, and reportedly became very wealthy."
Bill Roberts died 3/1/1974.
