Directed by Ted Berman, assisted by Mark Hester. Layout by Don Griffith and Brian Jowers (first page) and Don Griffith, Sylvia Roemer, Glenn Vilppu and Dan Hansen (the other pages).
This FINAL draft dated 5/4/1981 by secretary Charlene Rogers.

Animation by Linda Miller, Cliff Nordberg, Jerry Rees, John Musker, Hendel Butoy, Phil Young, Randy Cartwright, Jeff Varab and a truck by Dick Lucas.

We see the first scene by Jeffrey James Varab. Jeff has been quite a controversial person throughout his career, it seems, and I won't go into any detail other than this: he fostered a whole generation of animators in Denmark when he started the Copenhagen School of Animation back in 1981 with his friend Jørgen Klubien. He went on to become the director of the film Valhalla that eventually had me move from Holland to Denmark in 1984, where I worked with the animators with whom I would, in 1988, start the company A. Film, which would become one of Europe's most successful and prolific animation studios. (Jørgen Klubien, known in Denmark in the 80s as pop star, has worked at many studios incl. Pixar, and now works a summer job in Tivoli Gardens in Copenhagen cutting guests' silhouettes.)

Last time it was Ron Clements who got a "showcase" sequence, this time it's Randy Cartwright, animating the hunting trip almost entirely by himself.

We see the same animators return on Dinky and Boomer - Cliff Nordberg and Jerry Rees, with their one scene with Big Mama animated by John Musker. Linda Miller animates most of the caterpillar's scenes - she doesn't seem to have had a standard character assignment.
