Prod. 2057 - Fun and Fancy Free (XXII)  - Prod. 2048 - Bongo - Seq. 08.0 - Fight & Finale

The final and longest sequence of the draft...
76 77 78 79 80 81 82
Directed by Jack Kinney assisted by Ted Sebern.
Layout by Don DaGradi.
This FINAL draft dated 4/11/1947 by Eva Jane "'jane" Sinclair.

Animation by Hal King (supervising animator), Ted Berman, Harry Holt, Ward Kimball (supervising animator), George Goepper, Al Bertino, Harvey Toombs, Phil Duncan, Fred Moore and Ken O'Brien. Effects by Jack Boyd. Jane was a little too quick for scene 19...

"...or is this a dream - too good to be true..." and here we leave Bongo and Fun & Fancy Free. Of course I hope you enjoyed this draft. Again, I need to impress upon you my "standard disclaimer:"

"Animation drafts were never meant to be historical documents. They were meant as go-to documents, showing the responsible artist for a certain scene, who might be able to help in case there would be any need for this further on in the production line. Therefore we often see e.g. that animators who left have been replaced by others, often their assistants, in later versions of a draft. Also for this reason it is most often the actual animator, not the supervising animator, who is mentioned [except here in most of Bongo, of course]. The drafts may also be directly inaccurate - showing early assignments where the animator actually changed when the scene was finally handed out. Keeping all this in mind, though, the drafts can give us some sort of hands-on insight into the inner workings of the production of some of the most iconic motion pictures of all time."

So what's next? And when? To be honest, I don't know yet! I'll let it be a surprise... It'll be for me!

Thank you, Hans. That's the great finale. Next one is "Winnie the Pooh and Tigger Too", "Peter and the Wolf", and "The Reluctant Dragon" in the drafts. I looked on the drafts of "The Reluctant Dragon" and it's dark pages. I don't see it. My favorite drafts of A.A. Milne's "Winnie the Pooh and Tigger Too" and Sergei Prokofiev's "Peter and the Wolf", these are Disney drafts. Because, it was wonderful. Don't worry, I'll be waiting for "Peter and the Wolf" by Walt Disney and I'm terrified of wolves in the forest. :)

Fascinating that there's absolutely nothing by John Sibley in this entire picture! I guess Jack Kinney valued his talent in relation to Goofy enough to leave him to Hanna and Billy Bob through this era. I always suspected Sib might've done scenes of Lumpjaw, but now I know it's all Ward Kimball, and Harvey Toombs and Al Bertino aswell! Not the first time I've mistaken Kimball's work.

Thanks again for the great read, Hans! Hope to see you again soon!
