Question for Mr. Fun

Postby Richard » Sat Sep 18, 2010 2:32 pm

I was wondering if you knew any classic Walt Disney animated features even back in the day 50-80's whose animation production was partially (and secretly) outsourced to studios in other countries? There was a wiki entry on TMS (Tokyo Movie Shinsha) that, until yesterday, consisted of co-productions involving "Alice and Wonderland", "The Aristocast", "Fox and the Hound", "Black Cauldron", "Great Mouse Detective", "Oliver and Company", to name a few. Unfortunately, they were taken down, so the proof is gone, however, I don't know if it was a mistake or what.

In short, was their uncredited outsourcing of Disney's older movies back in the day that no one knows about?

Richard, from what I remember of the time, Disney was proud that they never sent any animation production overseas or that they never did any Saturday morning TV content. When Eisner came along that all changed with the Gummi Bears and the Wuzzles. I think they were the first shows produced for the Saturday morning market as well as being shipped out of house to be animated.

Speaking of Disney Saturday Morning shows I guess that ASIFA's going to have a TV shows reunion soon. Should be interesting.

Sorry, guys - I've been on a film.

To answer your question, I don't recall anything being outsourced until the Eisner management came on board.

Thanks Mr. Fun. I figured I'd come to you since you are a long-time veteran of Disney.

Now the question is when will they stop outsourcing so much.
