These are all so neat, I just can't believe I never really saw any of them before.

I know I really love the old cartoons. We were listeninhg to a classical station on the way home from the park today and I thinking about how great it was for classical music in Walt's era, so many great pieces were put to animation. So many kids learned about the great music of the masters, even if the lyrics they learned were, "Kill da wabbit, Kill da wabbit...."

They were so neat to watch every cartoon, I was on the edge of my seat (taking notes and pictures).

Just catching up on your last update. Seems like your TR didn't show up on my subscription list lately. It must have dropped off whilst I was away.

Anyway....another great update. I love those pictures of the how they did the flamingos. Nice to know that they used colour to animate the changing of the yoyo.

That was a very interesting fact that I never would have caught on if they hadn't told us. I'm about to post another one, so I'm glad you slipped in before I did successive updates and slipped in the middle!

The next clip that they showed was from an animated sequence where the Benny Goodman Quartet played the soundtrack. Here’s a few still photos. Salvador Dali had a hand in the animation. See if you can tell.













But here is the video, even better than the pictures.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OteJW-nraLw

The next one that they showed us was “Blame it on the Samba” a short that involved the Three Caballeros and Carmen Miranda











Here is the whole video

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7hkJr3bOFOE

The next discussion was about how they got Robin Williams to sign on as the Genie in Aladdin. Eric, whom is not in any of these pictures, is the one who drew the genie, (he also did Louis the trumpet playing gator in Princess and the Frog). What he did was picked out some comedy bits from Robin Williams albums and animated the genie those clips. They used those clips to convince Robin Williams that he was perfect for the part of the Genie.

[Continued from Previous Post]

Now the next one is also rather esoteric. We all know that he was rather eccentric and Walt called him “a true genius”. The more I learn about him and his animation, he was in charge of so many of the “whacky” scenes and “out there” stuff that actually became favorite scenes and really groundbreaking stuff. When you join me in the special lounge, I’ll be sure to point him out in the photographs there. He is one doing all the crazy stuff in the pictures!

Anyways, he had this idea for a scene in Snow White where all the dwarves came home sitting around the table and were slurping soup . I’m guessing he thought this would exemplify why they needed someone like Snow around to help them mind their manners! He put a great deal of time into animating the sketches for this scene and though it was never fully animated, we were able to get a really good idea of his intentions from the sketched drawings.



My notes are a little fuzzy here, and I think they took a quick segue. Evidently because this scene was eventually cut from the movie, he was “inconsolable” which is what I have in my notes. So because of that Walt gave him Jiminey Cricket in Pinnochio. And that must be what these next two pictures are about.





However we return to the idea of the soup slurping dwarves





Before they showed us the video. See for yourself.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cr-OEaocgOU

The last bit of Whacky Animation (mind you it’s barely 10:30 on Sunday morning and how long ago did I start this report of one weekend? ) is from Alice in Wonderland.



Ward Kimball also did the characters the Mad Hatter, the Cheshire Cat and Tweedledee and Tweedledum. I was reading up on him on Wikipedia and he was also a trombone player. This explains A LOT!







One of the other projects he worked on was the Three Caballeros. I don’t have any notes, on this, just photos.











There you have it that concludes the first hour of the second day of the Destination D: 75 years of Animation! I still have basically two more days to tell you all and my cruise is less then two weeks away! Yikes! I don’t think I’m going to finish this TR before that one begins! There is so much detail, it’s difficult to report, I can’t just tell you we went here and then there…I have notes to consult! We’ll see what I get accomplished! Maybe I’ll upload all the photos, copy the links and work on the TR when we are just sitting in the room watching the ocean rise and fall!

Anyways TTFN! Next up “Drawing with Personality” This one should go faster, it’s mostly pictures, I only have two and a half pages of notes on this one instead of well two and a half on the last one!

You're only up to the first hour of day 2????


Okay back on to your post.

There was a Dali exhibition in Melbourne in 2009. I caught the Destino short film there. I remember thinking how unlikely it was to have Dali make a Disney animated short...but it was pretty brilliant. It had all the Dali hallmarks AND the Disney hallmarks. Who would have "thunk" it?

Yeah, I'll agree with that! The funniest thing is that we went to a dinner where Rolly Crump was the speaker. He has a new book coming out. R
Evidently he wrote some things about Ward Kimball and his "inspiration" for many projects. They encouraged us to get the book before Disney got a hold of it

Yeah! There was so much packed into this weekend it was insane! I better step it up and at least finish Sunday before the cruise!

I have 5 scenes for the Destino short, framed and displayed. I got them about 4 years ago at an art auction.

That's awesome! My degree is in saxophone performance, I'm very familiar with each instrumental's quirks. Trombone players are their own breed!
