Richard Williams Studio did the titles for this film, although there is nothing unique or animated about them.

A reminder that The Thief and the Cobbler Recobbled Cut Mark 4 took eight years to complete and no new footage has turned up since then.

During the past seven years, if you've asked me five hundred times if there's going to be a Mark 5 (because 5 is a larger number than 4) and I've said no, that's fine.

If you ask me five hundred and one times, you get blocked.

I am now enforcing this rule and have blocked multiple people.

I have a friend who ... offered to digitally colour a few pencil test shots from the Thief at a discount out of my own pocket. We're starting off with a few short simple shots and see where we go from there. If the re-colours do turn out well enough, would you be interested in using them for a new Mark 5?

The VHS-sourced pencil tests in the Recobbled Cut are not high quality enough to be colored. They do not retain the high quality of Williams' original pencil work. They are a muddy soup which is impossible to color accurately. And even Williams' original pencil work, when colored by professionals on Fred Calvert's team, looked awful without his guidance. I recommend that you not do this.

There will not be a Mark 5.

Corny Cole animated an entire segment for Heavy Metal (the movie) that was deleted because it was so much better than the rest of the film, it made them look bad.

"Neverwhereland," which exists in two completely different forms, as rough and final (which is also rough).

Corny Cole had a unique style. His concepts for Richard Williams' Raggedy Ann & Andy are very interesting, if so loose that they're probably unanimatable. There's a John Canemaker book about it.

Neverwhere Land is on many releases of the film Heavy Metal as a deleted scene. I don't want to link to a Youtube video because the only ones around are very low quality!
