These are images. Thanks for posting them.
By the way, were there any Danish animators/artists at Disney in the golden era?

Thanks, Ken! No Danes, though Henning Dahl Mikkelsen tried. He was offered a job in layout, which he sadly declined. He then became well-known for a comic strip called Ferd'nand under the name Mik. There was one Norwegian, of course, Julius "Sven" Svendsen.
