Peet’s Little House – 4

- As I noted, when I first started posting these storyboards by Bill Peet, which were loaned to me by John Canemaker, there are a total of five oversized photographs. I’ve displayed and broken down three of them in the past weeks.

This is the fourth, and possibly the largest of the boards. It seems to be a reworking of the entire film. There may be a bit of repetition from other boards.

The fifth, and final, board is the conclusion of this version. I’ll try to post it tomorrow. (It takes a lot of time to break it down so that you can see the images slightly larger.)

This is the full storyboard. You’ll see below that I’ve broken up so that it enlarges a bit more than this original.

    Michael, John, you are performing an invaluable public service! You (with ASIFA Hollywood, UCLA archives, and other good Samaritans like Hans Perk) are rescuing animation history from neglect. Since animation has no proper museum, Historical Preservation Society, or even its own Baseball Hall of Fame, and its history is almost completely undocumented and anecdotal, it can’t afford to wait for even our most prolific historians to squeeze out whatever books they can in one lifetime (even if they could manage all the reproduction rights). With Jack Zander’s generation vanishing, confusion afoot as to how bar sheets work, and even revisionist history (promoting such mad notions as no good animation’s ever having a written script), we need to tend and make available what we know while it still walks the earth. Thank you for doing just that!

    Boy, thanks, Ray. Your comment makes me feel that what I get a kick out of doing is worth something to others. It’s a treat to see these artifacts and another one to share my enjoyment of them.

    Great series of posts! The storyboard to this film is even better than the film itself. Peet was a genius. Thanks, Michael!

    Ray, we’re hard at work on building that museum!

    See ya

    Thank you John for your generosity, and Michael for all the time you invest in making these available to everybody in a clear format.
