Drew Taylor & Jim Hill start things off by talking bout the key role master animator Mark Henn played in translating Disney's hand-drawn princesses into CG characters. Next Drew & Jim discuss the "Harvey Birdman, Attorney General" special that will be airing on Adult Swim later this month. Then Taylor & Hill look back at Disney Legend Woolie Reitherman and the role that recycled / repurposed animation had to do with the adoption of xerography at Walt Disney Animation Studios in the early 1960s.


This episode of "Fine Tooning" discusses:
The role that Tiana's voice actor Anika Noni Rose played in the retooling of this "Princess and the Frog" character for "Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-it Ralph 2"
The subtle changes that were made to the graphic novel version of "Hilda" 's characters to make them easier to animate
What animated series was part of the original "Adult Swim" line-up when that programming block debuted in September of 2001
Which characters from "Dumbo," "Peter Pan," "Alice in Wonderland," and "Sleeping Beauty" were repurposed for "Goliath II"
How Bob Iger compared Michael Eisner's exit from The Walt Disney Company to John Lasseter's exit from Pixar Animation Studios
What Don Hahn observed while working with Woolie Reitherman
