Not Richard Williams related. Restored by Garrett Gilchrist for The Thief Archive. Audio restoration by Darrell Maclaine-Jones.

Much of the same crew worked on the prototype 1981-83 version of Who Framed Roger Rabbit, which wasn't made. According to the internet it's virtually a lost film, so let me change that with this post.

The source VHS of this rare film had pretty bad color with heavy rainbowing, which I cleaned up via Neatvideo in AfterEffects over several passes. There's a shot of the town losing power two minutes in which I had to rebuild with guesswork, since the tape fails at that point. Close enough I think. There's a quick comparison at the end here.

An animatronic talking-head replica of Abraham Lincoln (voiced by Phil Proctor) hosts a tour of what the future will look like.

"Fun with Mr. Future" originally began development as an Epcot television special, whose crew included Darrell Van Citters, Mike Giamo, Joe Ranft, Mike Gabriel, Tad Stones and Brian McEntee. At the time, this team was also involved in the development stages of what would become "Sport Goofy in Soccermania" (1987) and Who Framed Roger Rabbit (1988). After Disney shelved the Epcot special, Tom Wilhite allowed them to use footage from the project and edit it into a new animated short. The resulting work marked the directorial debut of animator Darrell Van Citters, who began his career at the Disney studios.

Disney released the film in Los Angeles on October 27, 1982. No other public screenings took place until October 2010, when New York's Museum of Modern Art featured it in a program commemorating the publication of John Canemaker's book, Two Guys Named Joe. According to Tad Stones, "[Working on it] was a lot of fun but I couldn't even tell you where you find it now. It's one of those gems even Disney doesn't know it has. I went to a comic convention and was surprised to see its cels for sale."

-- Well, here it is.

Tartakovsky's Popeye. Not liking Popeye's design, or the constant use of fast-paced, limited animation techniques in a CGI framework, but it's interesting. Won't judge anyone for liking this.
