The live-action reference for 101 Dalmatians character Nanny, was actually not a woman, it was actor Don Barkley. Here is a photography performing for the puppy theft sequence, where the position and props are quite hilarious!
The character was animated by Ollie Johnston, and created her the most charming walk. Nevertheless, Milt Kahl helped with pushing her proportions and definition. Frank Thomas had his hand a little bit there too.
Joe Rinaldi’s storyboards compared to final stills of Lady and the Tramp.
His work has so much life, and they ended up being a great inspiration for the finished film. Even Frank Thomas said once that Joe had a lot to do with what was great about Lady & the Tramp.
These are some of the looks animators were planning at some point for these Disney characters. Can you imagine if they ended up looking like that?
I love BELLE’s OUTFITS! In fact, so much that I figured it deserved its own appreciation post. I realized that her fahion style is simple, yet elegant. Bright colours, capes and bows will always be a flirty and feminine, yet simple and comfortable touch.
VILLAINS WITHOUT MAKE-UP!
They may looked all put together, but at some point, they reveal their true colours! And it’s not just the ladies. Here’s the make-up, no make-up comparisons of some of our favourite Disney villains!
DISNEY’S NINE OLD MEN
Had to take the time to create an ode to these nine incredible men who were there when it all started. It was tough to find autographs of some of them though.
Which one is your personal favorite? Personally I can’t choose only one, but some stand out more for me. How about you guys?
Friends once, friends forever…
These two, are one of my favourite pair of friends. They mightbe top f my list with Timon and Pumbaa. They live such different lives yet when they talk or are together, it’s like they are on the same page, and so loyal to each other. Love them!
I adore this 101 Dalmatians sequence, and since then I always try to see the resemblance between dogs and their owners.

DISNEY FUN FACT- Wreck-it Ralph
Litwack’s Arcade is decorated by a nearby billboard starring the mouse that started it all: Mickey Mouse. In it, Mickey advertises a comapny called Double U Dee’s
(… ok). In it, there are also the initials WD (Walt’s) as well as the number 52, celebrating the fact that the film was the 52nd animated feature by the Walt Disney Animation Studios.
If you look closely to a game called Time Hunter 4 (right next to Hero’s Duty), the list of the high scores is being displayed. At the top, you can appreciate no other than the initials of Rich Moore (director of the film), John Lasseter (executive producer) and Ed Catmull (president of the Pixar & Walt Disney Animation Studios).
