Joining @geadaford in the #the100dayproject where you perform an action once a day for 100 days. I’ll be doodling once a day.
Got my “One Year with the company” pin a few days early! Time flies.
My standard joke — actually, I’m fairly serious — is that there are potentially more talented writers and directors than I working in shoe stores and Burger Kings across the nation; the difference is I was willing to put in the nine years of effort and they weren’t. More to the point, it took Thomas Edison a thousand attempts before he got that damn light bulb to turn on. Imagine if he’d gotten discouraged enough to quit after only nine hundred and ninety nine tries. The message here is simple, and John F. Kennedy said it best: ‘We choose to go to the moon not because it is easy, but because it is hard.’ Rough translation? If you have a dream, get up off your ass and start putting one foot in front of the other. —

That makes no sense.
Frankenweenie is a masterpiece.

This is not my artwork, but it’s a very important piece of artwork if you love Disney and especially Disney Afternoon.
This is the original pitch painting created by my good friend Tad Stones for ‘Kit Colby and the Rescue Rangers’, a new concept he took to Michael Eisner and Jeffrey Katzenberg in the early development days of what became Disney Afternoon.
According to Tad, within 2 minutes Eisner said ‘take out that Kit guy, put the two chipmunks in instead’ and the rest is history.
As with any new show, it developed and evolved. Gadget got a little prettier, Monterey Jack got Kit’s dress sense and the Chinese cricket Chirp Sing thankfully didn’t survive long enough to age awkwardly into the PC era ;)
Camille the Chameleon was the idea of fellow Ducktales writer Jymn Magon.
This is an awesome painting and part of Disney television history and I thank Tad for his permission to upload it and share its story with y’all :)
