Interesting indeed - we see more of Norm Tate doing the finale scenes; and John Lounsbery's alligator is fun. I was surprised to see how little some of the animators
contributed here, even though there was a lot of animation casting here!

Oh, and once I hope you are enjoying Christmas Day!

These drafts are great, I'm going to make mosaics of these!

The lead alligator is named Alex? I wonder where the name "Ben Ali-Gator" came from?

Somehow I thought Walt Kelly was involved with this sequence from Fantasia. John Lounsbery seems to have the bulk of the piece, no surprise. It's great animation; excellent timing.
