Prod. 2165 - Mary Poppins (III)

Hal Ambro (turtles), Julius "Sven" Svendsen (swans & cygnets), Ollie Johnston (penguins) and held cell menus by Jack Boyd.

Note sc. 48: "Daws Butler - 45 cycles - turtle dialogue." The "cycles" show how the track is to be sped up (or down, as the case may be). One sees this more often, like on Paul Frees' tracks for Ludwig von Drake, which I seem to recall are done at 90 cycles.

The indication on sc. 64 is also kind of fun: all the action to be fielded to a (Disney) 6½ field, with the characters to be positioned and blown up per guide. Ollie drew based on the stats in a different size, and then the drawings were to be xeroxed according to his indications filling the entire 6½ Field (which is, for those of you calculating in ACME, 14.4 Field, see the calculator on my separate Fields, Paper and Pegs page linked to in the right column).

B: blob matte is the same as, garbage matte. It would be used in these scenes to block out the platforms the actors would've stood on.
