Disney's Robin Hood (Golden Press, 1973) pt. 2


I hadn't really thought about it for some time, but years ago, I picked up this book from an eBay auction and didn't realize the added goodies that came with the book.  the contents included the following....


  • 6 newspaper clippings from either The Dallas Times Herald and The Dallas Morning News
  • 1 bookmark from a local book shop in Dallas
  • 1 courtesy card from The Circle Gallery in Dallas
I only had thought to sharing these after noticing this post on another blog I follow up on that showed a video clip of Disney animator Milt Kahl giving an interview for a TV station from the Circle Gallery in Dallas, TX. Thanks to Andreas Deja for providing this.



I figured it was the right time to break these out finally. Enjoy these little scraps of history people!  Click on them to bring them up larger of course.

Unfortunately I can't open this on my Mac.
Is there a Mac friendly format you can get me?
Thanks.

Well I decided to move what I have over to this site in a folder that might help you out here. It's basically something I downloaded off a site many years back of Milt's lecture from 1979 I think. I had thought about sharing it on my blog but wasn't particularly sure I want to yet unless you were OK with it.

By the way, here's something I wanted to send you privately but couldn't think of any other way to send it since you don't have an e-mail address handy, but this was a drawing that's been in my possession for some time now, and all I know of it is that it's a gag drawing from the Disney studio, featuring one of the vultures from The Jungle Book in a rather obscene situation (lord knows I didn't think they were that crass about it). I suppose at the time it gave me a giggle in getting it at all, but I did sorta wonder who was behind this drawing anyway. If you don't know, that's OK, just one of those mysteries I'm sure will never be solved.

I was able to open the Milt lecture, which I already have as a CD.
As far as I'm concerned feel free to post it on your blog.
Still having trouble with the vulture image.
Can you post it as a jpg?
Thanks again!

I had to censor the picture a bit obviously but I'm sure you can figure out the gag!

It looks like a sketch done by one of the assistants who worked on the film.
But the top guys did naughty drawings, too,
once in a while.

No doubt I could see why, I sorta thought it was done by someone who was extremely bored that day. Thanks for the help!
