Prod. CM-11 - Traffic Troubles

Released 3/7/31, it took little over three weeks to animate, from 12/29/30 to 1/24/31. Again directed by Burt Gillett, it features my favorite group of animators: Dave Hand, Les Clark, Tom Palmer, Ben Sharpsteen, Dick Lundy, Jack King, Johnny Cannon, Norm Ferguson and Frenchy de Trémaudan.

This is the film for which Dave Hand did some animation that he later mentioned - Walt told him several times to exaggerate his actions, until Hand got so irritated he said to himself "I'll show him exaggerated!" and made it twice as wild, so much so he thought he might be fired. Upon seeing it, Walt just smiled and said something like "See? That's just what I meant..."
