"Brazilian" is a language? I wonder if the characters from the United States are speaking "American"? :)

(and, yes, I know Brazil is in South *America*)

It's strange seeing all these "features" animators doing Donald... when they were used on the shorts it seems that they tended to animate Mickey, but now Donald's in a feature he has the priveledge of being animated by Fred Moore, Ward Kimball, Ollie Johnston etc.

Well... As the film's director, we have Norm Ferguson, but the sequence directors include Gerry Geronimi, Jack Kinney and Bill Roberts. I will see if there is any info on the other sequences...
