Little Whirlwind Action Chart

- Thanks to the generous loan from Bill Peckmann, I have this animation model chart of Minnie in Sc. 10 from The Little Whirlwind. The animation is by Ken Muse, Les Clark and George deBeeson (Effx). I suspect that Les Clark had the greatest hand in animating Minnie.

Here’s the model chart as copied:

I’ve broken the images down and enlarged them a bit for viewing purposes:

The Following QT movie is exposed on
a mix of ones and twos. All guesswork on my part, and
there are probably some drawings left off the model sheet.

Click left side of the black bar to play.
Right side to watch single frame.

    Excellent piece of old school animation (even within the old school, this is old)! Thanks for posting this!

    Les Clark had a very appealing drawing style. I love this.

    So what did Ken Muse do in the scene if Les Clark drew Minnie?

    I assume Les Clark directed the animation setting up the big picture for Ken Muse. The scene includes lots of things blowing in the wind from the window.

    Thanks for posting this. My dad worked on some of the major Disney full-length features, but he loved Mickey and Minnie.
