Prod. 2266 - Lend A Paw

Though not stricktly a Christmas film, it is very much in the spirit of Christmas, and thus I thought it fitting for this day. It also caters to those of you who like the later shorts, so everybody wins.

This 1942 Oscar winner, a remake of UM10, Mickey's Pal Pluto, was directed by Gerry Geronimi, and released 10/3/1941. This draft predates that by more than eight months, 1/18/1941 - in other words, it was animated before the strike and released after it.

We find animation by George Nicholas, Ken Muse, Nick Nichols, Bill Sturm, Eric Gurney, Norm Tate, Chick Otterstrom, Morey Reden and Emory Hawkins. Layouts by Bruce Bushman.

This is the first time I ever heard that Bill Sturm and Morey Reden worked for Disney.

Man, Morey Reden must have had a ton of cash to jump around from coast to coast like that. He jumps from Disney over to Famous Studios after this, then BACK to CA to work at the ill-fated Screen Gems studio... Then back the East Coast for Terry and Famous again!
