Richard Holliss: I understand you joined the Disney Studio as an inbetweener. Is that correct?
Woolie Reitherman: No, I was fortunate. I didn't have to go through the so-called apprenticeship program of inbetweener, assistant, and then animator. I was given the opportunity to animate... Oh, I think I did a few inbetweens for a Christmas thing. Probably a week of that and then I was put in animation.
RH: What Silly Symphonies did you work on at that time? WR: Funny Little Bunnies was my first animation, I know that. The bunnies with wheelbarrows full of eggs. I remember having trouble with eggs coming down the chute. They went backwards instead of... What else did I work on?
RH: Did you work on The Old Mill at all? WR: No, I didn't. I did not do too many scenes in the music picture, Music Land. I was just doing bits and pieces. I did some scenes in the broken doll thing [Broken Toys].
