Animation had been done before, but stories were never told.
Quotation of Marc Davis
At that time, the people that were in the animated film business were mostly guys who were unsuccessful newspaper cartoonists. In other words, their ability to draw living things was practically nil.

Before I got through high school I had attended 22 different schools. In the time before I was well acquainted with the latest school, I would amuse myself by drawing and found that I was pretty good at it.
Quotation of Marc Davis
Disney had made such a great deal of money on Snow White that the banks gave him the go-ahead on the next three films. But he was heavily dependent on the foreign market.
Quotation of Marc Davis
Drawing is giving a performance; an artist is an actor who is not limited by the body, only by his ability and, perhaps, experience.
Quotation of Marc Davis
Generally you would have one top assistant and he would have two or three assistants under him who most of the time were inbetweeners. Never a large operation, really.

His feeling was the name Walt Disney represented all of us. Walt was hanging by his teeth financially and really I think he was for most of his career. Not at all like today.

Quotation of Marc Davis
I joined Walt Disney, went to work, December 2nd 1935, so obviously, I'm not too young!

I would see the Disney cartoons whenever I went to the theater because they were just program fillers at the time.
Quotation of Marc Davis
In the early days, Walt Disney knew that he wanted to do feature-length animated films, but nobody outside of his organization knew this. So he advertised practically around the world I guess, in classifieds; little ads.
Quotation of Marc Davis
It wasn't a problem for me drawing humans although I had originally come to the studio with the idea that what I had to offer them was my knowledge in the drawing of animals.
Quotation of Marc Davis
It wasn't that you had to do these things, you wanted to do them. You were so proud. Every write-up the studio got, everybody went out and got it.
Quotation of Marc Davis
Later, my father died up in Marysville. So, my mother and I got in the car and came down to Hollywood.
Quotation of Marc Davis
Milt Kahl, Frank Thomas, Ollie Johnston and myself did most of the animation on Bambi; a rather small group that helped, I think, to maintain its consistency.
Quotation of Marc Davis
My father was something of a rainbow-chaser.
Quotation of Marc Davis
So I did, and the same guy who wrote this Dear Ms. Davis letter hired me on the spot.
Quotation of Marc Davis
Some of these sketches were done at the very beginning of the Pirates project, when I was trying to find a direction for myself. That was the early sixties... maybe 61 or 62.
Quotation of Marc Davis
The first professional training I received of any kind was when I was 14 years old and we were in Kansas City, Missouri. I attended the Kansas City Art Institute for one summer.
Quotation of Marc Davis
There is something I feel when I animate something; you can never really understand the character you're animating unless you've had the opportunity to turn it around. Once you've done that, you know it is a three-dimensional object.
Quotation of Marc Davis

Quotation of Marc Davis
What we were in on, really, was the invention of animation.
Quotation of Marc Davis
When I was a kid, my family moved around a lot, and I lived and grew up in a lot of wild places. I lived in boom towns and oil fields and the like.
Quotation of Marc Davis
Yes, the first job I had at the studio was Snow White. I don't like the term particularly, but I got stuck with the human characters. They just didn't have that many people who could draw humans.
