Prod. 2519 - The Rescuers (XVI)  - Seq. 06.1 - Part "A" - Mice escape from Crocs and Medusa

Directed by John Lounsbery and Art Stevens, assistant director Rick Rich, layout by Joe Hale.
This FINAL draft of 3/18/77.

Animated by Cliff Nordberg. Somehow it feels like Nordberg has the role that John Sibley filled some thirty years earlier...

It always appears to be that every time I see Cliff Nordberg's animation - its usually entertaining, wild and similar to what Ward Kimball would have done. Didn't Cliff Nordberg work in a Kimball style? I'm asking because, he worked closely with Kimball on Dum and Dee or the Mad Hatter and the March Hare in Alice in Wonderland and he did a big chunk of work on the film. He also worked under Kimball in Pecos Bill.

He animated the characters, Jasper and Horace in 101 Dalmatians under John Lounsbery.

He seems to have been a good animator who has been overlooked.

You can always count on a nice livley performance from Cliff Nordberg! Just about everything here is so hyperactive. It's wonderful, and very worthy and characteristic of him. I'm surprised someone else didn't get some of the early scenes, though.
