It feels like italian Disney - almost a separate world inside the whole, but a huge one. Derived from the Barks duck universe, with a latin twist. They're still the main producers of Disney comics nowadays... Scarpa's early works looked a lot like Floyd Gottfredson's, however. Later, younger artists like Giorgio Cavazzano went a step further with a fully personal style, so successful that it became a norm in itself. There's still some good artists like Mastantuono, Intini... But we're very far from animation.

It's interesting stuff -- and a shame we don't see more of it. Europe does really care about the comics ....

I believe this is a drawing by Richard Williams. This opening scene was used as a means to develop the character's model, and Richard did quite a bit of it himself.

Here's another from the same sequence:

The animation is a bit more lively than the restrained work done on Ducktales proper ....

None of this feels "Disney" but the work is good ....
Too bad they didn't go with them (if the price wasn't high). Always a shame when our European buds are turned down over the Asian route. That Ducktales test showed potential in simply getting a lot of movement out of those characters (of course TV production often goes for simple, static poses when necessary).

It happens!

By the way, thanks for "Fun with Mr. Future". one person's comment I liked was "Millennial irony and retro back in 1982!"

Speaking about cels, I just remembered that I've got a 1989 auction catalog from Sotheby's named The Art of Roger Rabbit (don't ask, I found it randomly in Québec years ago). Full color, original cover, hundreds of frames reproduced - or cels to be exact. Main interest : to see the pictures before ILM's shading (of whom I'm not very fond personaly). I have no scanner right now but if it's interesting enough, I might scan it.

I've got a lot of stuff from a Roger Rabbit auction, but I feel like it would have been a later auction than 1989? Not sure though. What was inside was very interesting, and included a lot of deleted footage. This would be interesting!

Here's a reel of Thief and the Cobbler footage, as transferred in 4k by Helge Bernhardt (on his custom-built system).

(More contrasty than the previous HD transfer by Peter C, admittedly ...)
