Sleeping Beauty Under Pressure

Here are a few sheets prepared by Production Assistant (later Production Manager) Ed Hansen, whom I remember as he showed me around the second floor of the animation building in August 1978. These sheets were prepared for the clean-up department during the production of Sleeping Beauty, but anyone who has worked in animation for some time has probably seen similar sheets...

Wow, many thanks, Hans, this is awesome! I have never worked in animation, and never will, so I never saw any such sheets before; it's really illuminating. Is it common for all hand-drawn animated feature, or is it specific to Sleeping Beauty (I recall that in the Eric Larson chapter of John Canemaker's book on the Nine Old Men, he explains that the movie was so difficult that, after a while, at the request of the finance department, Larson had to instaure a quota of drawings per day/week to keep the production going)?

Please, by all means,keep Sleeping Beauty sheets coming, and thank you again!
