Hans, this is a request, I wish you could post another feature length film after this. Doesn't matter which one.

Frances, I will eventually. Just don't know when yet. Also, based on your profile picture, I do not understand how you can even read the drafts...

Interesting seeing Phil Duncan doing so much for Kinney, and my does he do allot! Everything that isn't Bongo, and Bongo himself. Fred Moore and Ken O'Brien is a nice dynamic, they worked with each other here and at Lantz, when Fred was let go and Ken followed him over there after Pecos Bill.

Hans: What is it about Frances' profile picture which makes you think she can't read the drafts?

John, when I wrote that comment, Frances' profile picture was a canine... No longer, I see... ;-)

No indication of supervising animators here, but I think it would be reasonable to assume that Ken O'Brien was being supervised by Fred Moore?

For the first part of the sequence, Bongo's attempts to live in the wild are animated in blocks by Fred Moore and Marc Davis, with Ken O'Brien sharing with Moore on a few scenes. Meanwhile the woodland creatures are animated by Phil Duncan (who's also credited with one shot of Bongo - a mistake on the draft?).

Then when Bongo relaxes and goes for a walk with the woodland animals, they're all animated together, in blocks by Phil Duncan, Ken O'Brien (solo this time) and Hal Ambro... with no indication of any supervising animator.
