Baker's Instant Chocolate with Jiminy Cricket

I believe this is Production 5957, sequence 002 titled Umbrella

According to the animator draft from July 26, 1957, we would have:
Director: Nick Nichols
Layout Jacques Rupp
Secretary: Carolyn Erickson
Animation: Phil Duncan

Phil Duncan eh? I thought he left Disney after 'Alice in Wonderland' - could he have been covering in?

Didier Ghez said...

Probably freelancing like Mike Lah on the Fresh-up Freddie commercials.

A lot of names I know.

Nick Nichols was my director on occasion, and I knew layout man, Jacques Rupp. I used to be a good friend of the lovely blonde, Carolyn Erickson and we often had coffee together.

I don't remember Phil Duncan in the studio. Perhaps he worked freelance.

Ah freelancing - because he worked with John Hubley around that time pretty much up to "Watership Down".
