from my garage...
Yes, really. The garage. I'd forgotten I still had this drawing from "Nifty Nineties". Features two "clever boys from Illinois"-caricatures of Ward Kimball and Fred Moore, designed by the indefatigable Kimball. These two also provided their own voices, a real rarity.
Animated by Ward and assisted by Tom Oreb, who probably cleaned up Ward's drawing here--although Ward said he did much of the cleanup himself on this ultra-fast, low-budgeted Mickey Mouse cartoon, a gap project between "Reluctant Dragon" and "Dumbo".
