Prod. 2006 Seq.18 - Pepto-Bismol Trip

When Kimball was asked: "were you guys on drugs when doing this?", he answered "maybe Alca-Seltzer and Pepto-Bismol. We were just trained to think this way."
And Howard Swift and Hicks Lokey animated it.

This one draft page of 1/29/1941 covers the start of the Pink Elephant sequence in Dumbo. Seq. director Norm Ferguson, asst. dir. Larry Lansburgh, layout Ken O'Connor. My draft has only this page.

Is this really all the draft info for Pink Elephants? It leaves out a huge portion of the sequence, including some of the most interesting material.

Is it safe to assume that Howard Swift did the balance?

You are right, of course, it's not all there! Why didn't I check that? But this is ALL there is in the original draft that I have. The notes on the bottom were added in 1964 as the good people in the BG morgue (where this came from) also were wondering... The next scene fades up to the little crow.

Seeing how much there is missing, I would not dare make the assumption that the balance was done Howard Swift. It would have to stay a guess, until someone has the missing page (if it was done at all), or looks at the data on the scene folders.
