Ok, I know it is from 1938 but cut me some slack…..you know you want to see this. You have probably been thinking about this cartoon for a long time but couldn’t remember its name. It is one of my favorites made by Disney. Enjoy!
Ahhhh, thank you for this sweet moment in time Shane. And while 1938 was way before my time I do remember this cartoon and as well that Ferdinand The Bull is the very first book I ever remember owning. I treasured it and wish I still had it. Wow, you’ve jogged some very sweet memories. I don’t think anything will ever equal the beauty of Disney animation. Thank you my friend!
Thats my job! I agree, they really have some great artists.
Oh I always LOVED that cartoon!!! When I managed a video store in college in the late ’80s, we’d play all of those old Disney and Looney Tunes cartoons. One of my other favorite Disney ones was “Winkin’, Blinkin’ and Nod” — talk about sweet and beautiful animation!
They really had and have great artists working for them. I have always enjoyed the old cartoons. Thanks soo much for your post.
Have you seen the documentary FRANK AND OLLIE (1995) http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0113104/ ? You need to seek it out if you haven’t.
Here is a good overview of their story:
“‘Frank and Ollie’ is the touching story of Frank Thomas and Ollie Johnston, two of the original Disney animators. Lifelong friends and collaborators they tell the story of how their beginnings at Disney animation and the classic films they worked on together. Using archival footage, interviews with Frank and Ollie’s respective wives and current Disney animators, the film brings to life the rich picture of the unique and enduring friendship of these talented animators.” — Jennifer A. Detrick, reviewer on IMDb
You got it. It sounds cool! I will see what I can find and I will try and post what I come up with. Thanks for the heads up and your comments!
