Jeffrey Varab animates Amos Slade, Dale Oliver animates Copper, and the Glen Keane unit (which I expect includes Mike Cedeno) animates the foxes. John Pomeroy's one scene is of the porcupine.

Nice to finally see one of the “Prodigious juniors “ that was said to be at the studio at that time. I’m still waiting to see if Brad Bird or Henry Sellick show up at all!

Curiously, on the "Bongo" draft the supervising animator was in parenthesis but this time, the supervising animator is in BLOCK CAPS and the animator's name is in parenthesis. I don't know if this indicates who was more responsible for the drawings, or anything at all, really. Like, is this a Glen Keane scene with assistance from Tim Burton, or is it a Tim Burton scene drawn under Glen Keane's supervision?

I remember listening to an interview with Tim Burton (I think it was for the release of Frankenweenie) where he mentions starting out at Disney drawing "dead foxes. They weren't supposed to be dead, that's just how they looked when I drew them."

I'm surprised that Henry Selick, Brad Bird and J*hn L*ss*t*r haven't appeared on the draft yet. I suppose they must have been assistants. I believe Brad Bird worked, appropriately enough, on the Boomer and Dinky sequences with Nordberg, Rees and Musker.
