I love these Animation Drafts!

I have one question:

Who is "Larry", the assitant director for Pedro? The only Larry I can think of at the moment is Larry Clemmons, & I'm pretty sure it's not him. Yet, I could be wrong.

I would guess this would be Larry Lansburgh. Alberto writes:

LANSBURGH, Lawrence (Larry)
- Assistant Director: DISNEY c40 (Pluto 41 [Pluto’s Playmate])
- Production Supervisor: DISNEY c43-45 (The Three Caballeros 45)
- NOTE: Went on to direct live-action films and TV series for DISNEY 53-67

The Social Security Death Index database shows one Lawrence M Lansburgh born 18 May 1911 deceased 12 March 2001 in Eagle Rock, Oregon. Who knows - the dates seem to fit...

IMDb corroborates the birth year, the death month and year, and the middle initial, though they have the date of his death as the 25th, and the info that he was born in San Francisco...

I see he directed 'Run, Appaloosa, Run' - I remember seeing that when I was just starting to get interested in specifically Disney's films, back in the mid 70's.
