Frank Thomas Animates the Chairman

One of Frank Thomas' last animation assignments, the Chairman of the Rescue Aid Society from The Rescuers.
I love this candid photo of Frank in his office taken in 1976 or early 1977. I believe he is working on the same drawing as pictured below. Frank didn't do all of this character's scenes, but he animated the best ones. Expressive, full of personality with natural movement. 









Character actor Bernard Fox provided the warm, character rich voice.
Here he is twenty years later in Titanic.

  1. That's very cool, I didn't know Frank worked on that character.

    There's a YouTube video that was released today talking about each of the 9 Old Men and their individual work on Cinderella. I think it will be a great resource to send people to as a rundown of who they are/how they animate.

  2. thanks for sharing this...looks like he's got 5 pages flipping at one time. such great motion in his flipping...years and years of repetitive motion. Did you guys have trouble with arthritis in either your flipping or drawing hand. did you ever have to take a few days off because of hand meltdown? . I do 3d animation,and celebrate 30 years as an animator this year, and we do the equivalent of drawing and flipping with key strokes and mouse movements.I often see guys in their 20's with wrist guards on already. I keep my wrists well rounded with drums and guitar. What would you guys do? Cheers from San Diego. Fish tacos on me any time yer down this way.

    1. I never had a problem with my hand or wrist, even during crazy deadlines. Animators draw in a loose style, it's almost like your whole arm is involved in animating a scene.
      I do know that clean up artists have issues with their hand occasionally. Their line work needs to be so precise, it can take a toll.

    2. carpal tunnel problems are pretty common among people I know. Even if you don't have a pain, wearing the wrist guards can actually force you to draw with your whole arm, which is a good habit anyway

  4. I got my already programmed and blanked ATM card to withdraw the maximum of $1,000 daily for a maximum of 20 days. I am so happy about this because i got mine last week and I have used it to get $20,000. Mike Fisher Hackers is giving out the card just to help the poor and needy though it is illegal but it is something nice and he is not like other scam pretending to have the blank ATM cards. And no one gets caught when using the card. get yours from Mike Fisher Hackers today! Just send an email to blankatm002@gmail.com

  5. Hello fellow women and home makers, my name is Rachel Reginald, I'm from the USA and I'm here to talk about how I lost my husband over a little argument. One morning my husband, our kids and my self sat for breakfast and along the line I got into an argument with my husband and I didn't know he was serious on this one so he left as usual so when I and our kids got back, we waited for daddy to come to us but he never did so I became so sad and fucked up. After 3 weeks and there was no sign of him coming back so I decided to report and got I reply that he's with another woman and I became frustrated and blamed myself for everything, I called his phone and texts but he wouldn't respond. So I decided to find means with which I could possibly bring him back because I need him as much as our kids also need him. I decided to go online looking for help and then I came across a woman called Katrina whom was testifying about how Dr. Alusi helped her in a similar situation. So I emailed him and after sometime he replied and gave me some instructions and after some 2 days, he got back to me and told me that my husband will come home in 72 hours that he will not have peace until he returns home. I'm now living with my husband again and our kids are as happy as ever. If you need help I urge you to reach dr alusi and I can assure that his spell is very effective. You can reach him through this email address [dr.alusistanley@gmail.com] or +2348146050373.
