Pinocchio Poolroom Sequence

One of the great sequences in Pinocchio. In the poolroom, just before the horrifying character transformations begin. I love these photostats that show the sequence in progress. Storyboard sketches mixed in with frames from the rough animation. Be sure to click twice on the image for large scale viewing.

Lampwick by Fred Moore, Pinocchio by Milt Kahl and Jiminy Cricket by Ward Kimball.


  1. I love sequences like this that are set up for the characters to perform among themselves, and I think that assigning animators by character really pays off in sequences like this.

  2. Did they print the layout+animated shots on photographic paper?! for reviewing more clear?!
