Good morning! This day in Disney history. Jan 25th,1961. Disney's 17th animated feature film 101 Dalmatians, featuring the voice of Rod Taylor - premieres. It is the first Disney feature to solely use the Xerox process. The film's design would have been impractical for Disney's tried & true inking & painting process. This prompted innovator Ub Iwerks to partner w/ Xerox to create an early photocopier that would turn an animator's drawing directly into an animation cell. The drawing below was drawn by the amazing animator Milt Khal. Have you seen this film? If so, what is your favorite part?

I love this movie! That's really cool to know. That movie always brings back fond memories. When I was little, I had a 101 Dalmatians themed birthday party and I literally got 101 different Dalmatian toys. My parents even got me the giant Dipstick plush from the top of the plush mountain at the old school Disney store. - TraderJennsEnchantedTikiBathroom.  75.5 #4034 4:59PM
