Prod. 2063 - Cinderella (X)  - Seq. 2.3 - Work Fantasy (Mice Sing Work Song)

Directed by Jaxon, laid out by Mac Stewart. Assistant director Mike Holoboff, secretary "Toby" Tobelman.
This final draft dated 10/12/49.

A classic, musical sequence, best left to Wilfred Jaxon.
We start off with Cindy by Eric Larson and birds and mice by Don Lusk; Phil Duncan takes over. When the part that we all know so well from Christmas shows etc. ("Poor Cinderelly - Every time she find a minute...") starts, it's John Lounsbery (Gus & Jaq) and Hal King (Suzy and girl mice), complimented by George (Nick) Nicholas and Fred Moore - last scene by Hugh Fraser. Effects by George Rowley.

I always liked the pantomime in Scene 63 - it's classic Fred Moore.

If you can't find your DVD, I found this on YouTube:

I always figured Lounsbery did the infamous 'Cinderelly' song you mention.

Don Lusk does some good mouse animation here, and Nicholas does some very good birds. Fred Moore is very nice too, he does some of the more memorable dialogue. "I'll cut it with a scissors!"

I loved working with Phil Duncan. John Hubley used him for the entire time I worked at that studio (about ten years), and I was the only assistant to his work. Unfortunately, I didn't know how much animation he'd done for Disney. I knew him as a "Thumper" animator. Too bad there was no internet back then so I could have studied his career on your site, Hans.

Such a beautiful fluid drawing style and brilliant animation. He was perfect to learn from.

I knew that Fred Moore was working around the lines here - and it's pretty neat work here.

Phil Duncan is a good animator, but what amazes me is that he seems to be a comedy animator - and yet he worked on that stiff, tragic film "Watership Down".

I thought Marvin Woodward worked around here - I thought wrong. I now think he worked on the Fairy Godmother sequence with the mice.
