Quick before Disney removes this gem from Youtube.
Check out the rough cut of the never released Disney short "Plight of the Bumble Bee" over at Thad Komorowskis blog.
And here's the story behind it's resurrection: Back in 1982, Daan Jippes retrieved some "stuff" connected to a never-produced short (which info he found in David R.Smith`s Morgue down in the basement of the R.O.D. building) from the loft in a toolshed on Disney`s famed backlot. Four boxes worth of animation-, layouts and X-sheets.
Its available animation was eventually completed under the supervision of Burny Mattinson, some 12 years ago.
The "modelsheet" seen above was compiled and lettered by Daan, in 1982.
Thanks to Daan for the above info!
