Prod. 2062 - Ichabod (IV)
  - Seq. 3.3 - Singing Lesson

Directed by Jack Kinney, layout by Lance Nolley and Thor Putnam. Animation by Ed Aardal ("incidentals"), Les Clark, Ollie Johnston, Harvey Toombs (Ichabod & girls) and Hal King (Brom Bones & boys).
This FINAL draft dated 10/4/48.

I would think it fair to guess that Ollie was the Supervising Animator for this sequence. Again a lot of reworking: scenes 3 to 21 out of the picture?

Today the first Ichabod scene is by Les Clark, yesterday it was Larson. I'm starting to notice a pattern here! Harvey Toombs gets all the shots of Ichabod eating, too.

I wondered, why they put two layout artists on this small sequence...

The narration is different in the last couple of scenes.

Ollie would have been supervising animator for the scenes with Ichabod and the women; Milt Kahl would have supervised the Brom Bones scenes.

Ollie Johnston does a good job here, I knew it was either him or Frank working on it. Why would Les Clark be working on a small scene if he's probably not going to be on the rest of this short? This is another sequence where it features "Ollie's girls", and his animation here is very on-model.

Hal King is rather off-model with Broms here, compared to Milt Kahl.

Oh, and a small correction: Ed Aardal is not animating effects, but townspeople and animals. It would still count as "character animation", even if they are only incidental "extras". :)

Thanks, John V.! I haven't had the time to revisit the film yet, even though I am posting these pages, so at times my recollection fails - sorry!

Thanks, EVERYONE, for commenting! Keep it coming!
