Prod. 2061 - Melody Time (VIII)  - 2060 - Blame it on the Samba

Directed by Gerri Geronimi, assistant director Ted Sebern, layout by Hugh Hennesy and Bob Cormack. This FINAL draft is from 4/8/48.

Again a musical piece, and though Kinney or Jaxon might have directed it a little more light-hearted than Geronimi, it is still a fun and lively segment with animation by Hal King, John Lounsbery, Les Clark, Harvey Toombs and Ward Kimball, effects by Josh Meador. I know the names are a bit hard to read (Josh Meador the hardest, it seems), but I think it is possible to decipher them anyway.

For a closer look of this segment, check out Thad's blog.

Again, it is the last segment in the draft because its production number is highest, though it is the penultimate segment in the film.

This concludes my complete feature draft #9, prod. 2061 Melody Time. I will try to sum things up in my next post. In the mean time, as always, please feel free to comment!

Thanks for humoring me, Mr. Perk. This is information that I wanted to find out for the longest time. Pecos Bill is awesome! Unfortunatley, 'Melody Time' is just too obscure, I guess.

One of my very favorite 1940s sequences. Brilliant and surreal. IMHO Melody Time is an extremely under rated film which points the way to the renaissance of feature animation in 1950s.
