This week’s breakdowns are a Pete Burness double feature. Burness directed the UPA’s Magoo and was an animator on MGM’s Barney Bear.
Not to be confused with the 2005 Disney feature, “Chicken Little” was first animated by the studio in 1943 – much more in line with the original folk tale, and as a dark piece of World War II propaganda.
Tomorrow is Donald Duck’s birthday, so it’s only fitting to discuss his film debut! Albert Hurter designed the characters, including Donald’s sailor cap and middy blouse.
