we start off with a unexpected suprise, Woolie being teamed up by his assistant, Bob McCrea! Then Ed Aardal animates one scene and when they get to the chicken coop, the chase begins with Woolie, McCrea, Fraser and Hatchcock doing their best skills. And then who shows up, oh no!, it's Ken O'Brien animating Tramp, but only in four scenes!. I think Woolie specially assigned O'Brien to Tramp to "re-issue" the rest of Jerry's scenes.. O'Brien however animates Lady a sequence ago but for the rest of this movie he mainly animates humans.

Finally, a Ham Luske sequence where Thor Putnam isn't doing layout. Al Zinnen is still here, though.

Bob McCrea and Fred Kopietz join the uncredited roster for the film. Lots of scenes by Woolie and Hugh Fraser in here, too.

A more expected assignment for Woolie and his team - a chase sequence. We haven't seen Marvin Woodward or Hugh Fraser on this draft for a while - Woodward was last seen animating the rat, and Fraser animating Trusty's first scenes - both probably under Woolie's supervision as they are here.

A few more uncredited animators: Fred Kopietz and Bob McCrea, along with Harry Holt again. As on Sleeping Beauty, most of the animators who didn't get screen credit are working for Woolie. Coincidence? Connection?

Christopher: Are you a sports commentator by trade? :)

"for the rest of this movie he mainly animates humans" - not only that, but for most of *his career* he animated humans.

In fact, if you look at the scenes on this draft where O'Brien is listed as animating dog characters, Woolie's name isn't far away. I don't know how much control the directing animators had, but it looks like Woolie was the one "casting him against type".

Well, Ken O'Brien did work for Walter Lantz briefly along with Fred Moore in the late 40s; so he wasn't a human animator all his career.

The earlier scenes of Tramp enticing Lady to chasing chickens: animated by Woolie and Hatchcock--are brilliant. The facial expressions of Tramp's line 'Ever chased chickens?' is executed wonderfully. Shows how he was more than the average guy.
