Prod. 2011 - The Fabulous Mr. Toad (IV)  - Seq. 04.0 - Motor Mania

Directed by Jack Kinney, layout by Charles Philippi.
This FINAL draft dated 5/5/49.

Animation by Frank Thomas, Marc Davis, Bob Youngquist, Bill Justice, Al Bertino (he wasn't "just" a story man!), Harvey Toombs, Hal King.

Here is a case where I actually asked Frank once how far his influence went with regards to this sequence, and he told me he basically planned all of the business, even those scenes that were then issued to others to animate. That should give you some more insight into the function of a directing animator!

I thought all the Bambi animators would be on a 'shelved' sequence with James Algar; not so!
I always figured Frank Thomas handled shot 8, and I'm pleased to see that I'm correct. Marc Davis makes Cyril look like Tinkerbelle in shot 34.
