I was going through some stacks of old drawings the other day and found these. One is mine, the other isn't. Both of them are humor from inside at Disney, mostly funny just to those of us who worked there at the time. But I think anyone can get a chuckle from them.
This is Bob Stanton, head background painter. I drew this after an (ahem) incident which earned him the nickname "Tuba Butt". I'll leave the rest to your imagination.
This went up on our wall of caricatures, and eventually a copy was taped to the tour window outside Bob's office for all the guests at Disney/MGM to see, but out of Bob's sight. Someone added, "for a musical selection, please knock on glass!"
Bob nearly went crazy trying to figure out why all the tour guests were knocking on his window, especially when he was on important phone calls with the directors.
This is a drawing I wish I could take credit for:
In case you don't recognize them, it is Michael Eisner & Jeffrey Katzenberg (when they were still speaking). I don't know who drew this genius piece of art. If you know, please enlighten me.
This is not only funny, but an incredible piece of graphic design, don't you think?
A copy of this was printed in a special Aladdin crew desk calendar that we were given for Christmas 1992. I didn't work on Aladdin, but I had just started at the studio and got the gifts just the same. (Ah, the perks of days gone by...)
