Melody Time (1948)

Melody Time (1948) 
original production animation drawing
blue, red and black pencil on untrimmed animation sheet, image size: 7.5" x 6.5"
What a fabulous drawing! This original final animation drawing of Pecos Bill and Widowmaker was created by a Disney Studio animator in production of the animated feature, and a cel painting was made directly from it. Directed by Clyde Geronimi,Pecos Bill is a standout segment of the film, sung and narrated by Roy Rogers and the Sons of the Pioneers to Luana Patten and Bobby Driscoll.
Milt Kahl supervised the animation of this scene, and he certainly worked on this original. It is an animator's extreme drawing with grid drawn at right. Pecos Bill and Widowmaker are seen riding through the West "a-buttin' heads with the buffalo." Alas, "Poor Bill. Yeah, happy as a hawg in a turnip patch. And then..." he spies Slue Foot Sue and goes into this wonderful take. The animator wrote the studio designation "191" at lower right to indicate this original's place in the scene
