Action Analyisis – April 26, 1937

- These are the notes for the Disney studios after hours classes on Action Analysis give on April 26, 1937.

The action they studied was a loop from a Charlie Chase film wherein he throws apples from a fruit stand while the attendant tries to stop him. They are particularly studying the drapery involved. Don Graham, as usual, conducts the class with involvement from: Roy Williams, Milt Neil, Joe Magro, Rose, (Ray?) Patin, and Izzie Klein.

    I love those Action Analysis papers, and i love to be able to find those! Now if only i could find more animator drafts for all the old Disney shorts…

    By the way Micheal, i made a new post, this time a full post talking about an Oswald Rabbit short. It’s a follow up to that Oswald Run Cycle post i showed to you previously. Heres the link below, check it out and leave a comment please.

    Micheal, i need to tell you this! The Lantz DVDs you have are probably the Columbia House Woody Woodpecker DVDs! The print i got those frame grabs from is from “The Woody Woodpecker And Friends Classic Cartoon Collection Vol. 1: The Walter Lantz Archive”. It’s the “official” DVD set from Universal, not the Columbia set. Both Vol. 1 & 2 of the Official Universal sets have some of the Lantz Oswald shorts on them, including the restored print of “Hells Heels!” I hope that helps!

    Below is an Amazon link to the first of the two “Official” Woody Woodpecker DVD sets.

    Thanks for letting me know. I’ll get the newer DVD if it has treasures like some of those Oswalds.
