THE GREAT MOUSE DETECTIVE

First of all, here is the article I wrote that we mentioned in the episode. “Magic in Every Footstep.”

Also here is playlist I thought I embedded in the article to make it make sense:)

Now On to the articles we used this episode. Not very many actually:)

HOW THE GREAT MOUSE DETECTIVE KICK-STARTED THE DISNEY RENAISSANCE

I’m so sad I didn’t find this Tor article before we did the episode. They do such a goo job.

THE BLACK CAULDRON

As always we’ll start with videos. The first one is less about the history of the movie than it is about fun. It’s an exploration of one of the only ways the Black Cauldron was used in the disney parks. Enjoy!

Here is a compilation of Disney’s interviews and releases about The Black Cauldron.

You should also check out the documentary, <a href=”http://<iframe style=”width:120px;height:240px;” marginwidth=”0″ marginheight=”0″ scrolling=”no” frameborder=”0″ src=”//ws-na.amazon-adsystem.com/widgets/q?ServiceVersion=20070822&OneJS=1&Operation=GetAdHtml&MarketPlace=US&source=ac&ref=qf_sp_asin_til&ad_type=product_link&tracking_id=reelrecollect-20&marketplace=amazon&region=US&placement=B004EKDVTO&asins=B004EKDVTO&linkId=e18bbda290145de657c6e18100f65dad&show_border=false&link_opens_in_new_window=true&price_color=333333&title_color=0066c0&bg_color=ffffff”> Waking Sleeping Beauty . It gives a more official Disney side of this time in history.

NOW ARTICLES!

As always, we love Tor.com. This one is a shorter article that gives a pretty good overview.

The next article is the most detailed. What I particularly like is how many interview quotes they have from animators that were there at the time. Great article.

“How ‘The Black Cauldron’ Nearly Killed Disney Animation” by Drew Taylor

A few more fun facts in this article.

“Everything to Know About the ‘Black Cauldron.'” by Nathanial Eker

This one is animator Michael Peraza’s autobiographical remembrance of the events.

THE HISTORY AND MAKING OF THE FOX AND THE HOUND

I know, I know, I haven’t added sources forever. For the five people interested don’t worry! I will eventually back log for those other films. However, I didn’t want to keep saying that while putting off our latest episode. SO! Here are all of the clips, books and articles we used as background on our episode on Disney’s Fox and the Hound.

First up, a straight up making of clip. This gives a good general overview of the films making.

This next clip shows Hayley Mills taking us through the process of voice recording at Disney. It’s clearly meant to be a bit of an ad for the the upcoming, “Black Cauldron.” However, it shows Big Mamma voice actress Pearl Bailey singing, “The Best of Friends.” It’s lovely to see how her physicality influences the character of the friendly owl.

Next up we have a clip of Vixey actress, Sandy Duncan, talking about her experience on the film.

I’ve also included two clips from the composer of the film Buddy Baker. There are many, many more clips of this interview online and if you’re interested in the Disney Legend, you should definitely go look the rest of them up!

Now! Here. Are. Some. Articles! The D23 article is good for fun facts but I particularly liked the Tor.com articles. I felt they gave some of the most in depth info on the book the movie was based on, as well as detailed the state of things at the studio.

And last, but not least: BOOKS! We really only used one for this one. The bible of animation, “The Illusion of Life: Disney Animation,” By Frank Thomas and Ollie Johnston. Here’s a link to buy it on Amazon.
