Animation Roughs; Jose Carioca and a Gauchito

Here's a nice collection of drawings; I likely have the sequence in the wrong order, but almost all of them aren't numbered.
Don't forget to click on the images to open them in a larger size.









Fred Moore ruff animation poses of Jose Carioca and either the little Gauchito or someone who could double for him: the Brazilian parrot and the boy from "The Three Caballeros". Whether this is something intended for that 1944 film or part of an uncompleted sequel I'm not sure.

Holy Toledo Jenny great stuff!!! Slow down for Chrissakes I can't digest it this fast. What did you do, quit your job to blog?

Great stuff thanks for posting it.

Ha--okay, I'll give you a break, then. But after all--it's a short week and I want to get all this up up up!
Isn't it keen? It was pretty amazing to hold the originals in my hands...something about the pen/pencil/watercolor/paper...such fragile remnants, but still making an impact. The more of his work I see, the more respect I have for Fred.

These are indeed amazing, Jenny. I've always loved animation roughs more so than finishes. Something about the vitality of the line, the searching, the erasing, etc. Very cool stuff! Thanks so much for sharing.

Thank you so much for posting all of this amazing stuff Jenny!!! My eyes hurt from staring so intensely at my monitor! So inspiring!!! I'm especially glad you posted these roughs so that we can get a little insight into his methods and thought process.

Those are great! Did you know Jose Carioca is still really big in Brazil? He has his own comic book, and since the stories are written here we can sort of relate to them. He really seems to live here in the comics (while in Three Caballeros the impression is that the country portrayed is a 'clean' and somewhat stereotyped version of Brazil). This is quite interesting, as other disney characters, such as Mickey and Donald seem to live in some distant cartoon city, funny but not as real as Joe Carioca's world.
