The host (Disney artist and historian John Culhane) looks exactly like OFFICE SPACE-era Stephen Root. It's uncanny.
The first quiz was very hard, the rest was very informative.

I know I've seen this before but I don't think it was on here. Also, have any of y'all read Jonathan Lethem's novel Gun With Occasional Music? The two share many plot elements, although protagonist Metcalf's not in a cartoon universe: Anthropomorphic attributes and language are given to various members of the animal kingdom with little explanation. It's very Chandler-esque and frankly I think it deserves a movie. This original version reminds me a lot of that.
Some of the test footage is on here but not the rest of it as far as I can tell.
Fuck Robin Williams
If you've never read the actual novel, you must. It's dark, incredibly well-written noir, and there's a side plot where Jessica is sleeping with a cartoon beaver from sex-ed cartoons clearly based on Jiminy Cricket.

Five stars for someone knowing who Richard Williams is. Are you an animator as well, boner?
I don't think I've seen the newest Thief and Cobbler but yeah. I mentioned it before but I was super into Donald Pleasance when I was a kid so they rented me that one instead because Aladdin was always checked out. I guess it left an impact.
I'm no animator. I learned about him through poeTV. At least one person was submitting thief & cobbler clips here. There is a documentary about him called Persistence of Vision, and happened to be playing in my town around that time. So I went to see it and it was good. (Director did a Skype call, and some local animators were there in person, they had worked with Williams.) Then I found this YouTube channel where some anonymous people (person?) occasionally upload rare old clips like this. They have even been scanning in 35mm prints that nobody else has.
I generally like documentaries about people who are obsessed with something, and Richard Williams is just about the king of obsession.

The three cabel yeros.
The 3 Caballeros was made after Roy Disney made Walt take a vacation to South America because he was clearly having a mental breakdown about the strike of 1941. Walt was never the same again, and Roy solved the strike in a matter of hours after the plane left.
Is that the next door neighbor from "Merlin's Shop of Mystical Wonders"?
