“It was a difficult picture because we’d never done any animal with anatomy and Walt wanted the deer to be very believable.” - Ollie Johnston, Animator
“Walt’s idea was to get all of his artists to draw in the way of the old masters and then put them to animation. They started bringing in real animals and having them on the sound stages and it became a zoo in itself.” - Mel Shaw, Animator
As a kid I always wanted to work there
just to work with the animals like this ahha
Happy 100th Birthday to Marc Davis!
Today would have been Marc Davis’ 100th birthday.
Marc Davis was one of the original Imagineers for WED Enterprises and is well known for the iconic characters, gags, and scenery he inspired during Disneyland’s and Walt Disney World’s formative years.
Marc Davis is the man behind most of the memorable tableaux from Pirates of the Caribbean, The Haunted Mansion, the environment of the Jungle Cruise, and the narrative and basic show of the Country Bear Jamboree. Marc Davis’ art humanized what ever subject he tackled. His characters were relatable, and often humorous on the most basic level. Marc Davis’ work winds a common thread through the Magic Kingdoms, bringing the expected humor, charm, and wit into the experiences and localities we encounter.
Many thanks to Marc Davis.. Disney owes him a lot. Happy Birthday, Marc!

A tip of the cap to @SpikeLee for introducing this song from “Dil Se” to Western audiences in his “Inside Man.” There’s a kind of universality to it and yet it still has a pervasive otherness that bewitches.
