Prod.2001-Snow White & the Seven Dwarfs(XXI)
- Dwarfs by Shamus Culhane, Bill Roberts, Al Eugster, animals by Eric Larson, Jim Algar and Bernard Garbutt (incl. incidental dwarfs).
Culhane will always be connected with Heigh-Ho! Also it is interesting to see the "animal expert" Garbutt be entrusted to "put dwarfs on his deer," as if they are just part of the animals' overlapping action.
Seq. 14-C "Witch Urges Snow White to Make Wish"
- Witch by Norm Ferguson and Frank Kelling, Snow White by Bob Stokes.
Frank Kelling, another of the animators that found their way onto Gulliver's travels, like Shamus Culhane, Grim Natwick, Al Eugster and Stan Quackenbush, not to mention Joe D'Igalo, Tom Palmer, Bob Leffingwell or even Thurston Harper and Ben Clopton (who worked on Disney's Alice series), may here have been animating assistant for Norm Ferguson. We know that Kelling was animating for Disney already in 1931. He worked on Oswald for Lantz as seen in the group photo in this recent posting by Mike Sporn.
Seq. 14-E "Dwarfs Start for House to rescue S.W. - Meet Turtle"
- Dwarfs by Bill Roberts, Les Clark, animals by Bernard Garbutt, Eric Larson and Jim Algar. Whether Ham Luske animated the turtle or the passing crowd of dwarfs is not clear. His experience from "The Tortoise and the Hare" may be a clue.
Les Clark's scene FEELS like it is taken out of context, and lo - it is, originally from the lodge meeting, where Sleepy suggests building a bed! Does this mean that that sequence was animated in its entirety?
