The Carl Bell Interview -- Part II

Carl returned to Disney Feature animation on February 3, 1988 ... exactly thirty years after he first sat down at a Disney desk. (That's him on the far left, remembering his time with Bob Clampett -- note the puppet. The others: Lori Noda, Jerry Brice, Tom Sito, JIM van der Keyl --in caricature -- and Brian McKim, who is holding Jim. Thanks to David Nethery for all the idees.)

Carl worked on a long string of features from Disney's Second Golden Age. As the studio shifted to more digital work at the end of the 1990s, he hung up his pencils and light board and cantered off to retirement. He relates that he has plenty to do without the nine-to-five thing getting in the way.

David, thanks for this. I should have asked Carl everybody's name. Oversight on my part.

Dear David Carlton:

The video interviews are all up on YouTube. The audio versions are downloadable as podcasts on Itunes.

That should be enough, for now. But thanks for checking in.

"The others: Lori Noda, Carl Bell, Tom Sito, Steve van der Keyl --in caricature -- and Brian McKim, who is holding Steve."

That should be Jim Van der Keyl , not Steve van der Keyl.

And the artist at the back behind Lori Noda and Tom Sito is Jerry Brice.
