No, I bet you dont. LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT ONE OF THE COOLEST ANIMATORS EVER. THIS is Don Bluth. HE IS AWESOME.
After just one mofo year at Brigham Young University he got a job at the Walt Disney Company and worked as an animator and/or assistant director on huge movies like Sleeping Beauty, The Sword in the Stone, Robin Hood, The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, The Rescuers, Pete’s Dragon, The Black Cauldron, and The Fox and the Hound.
THEN he went back to college and got his degree in English Lit. AND THEN he and 16 other animators left Disney to start their own animation company DON BLUTH PRODUCTIONS where half of my childhood was created. He’s responsible for movies like
The Secret of Nimh
An American Tail
The Land Before Time
All Dogs Go To Heaven
As well as Rock-a-doodle, A Troll in Central Park, and The Pebble and the Penguin, AND the series/video games like Dragon’s Lair, and Space Ace.
He ’left’ because he was “disheartened’ with the way Disney ran his company - SO HE MADE HIS OWN. WITH A SMALL ARMY OF AWESOME ANIMATORS FROM DISNEY. YO. YOOO.
HE A BADASS GENIUS AND I THINK ITS ABOUT TIME HE GETS THE CREDIT HE DESERVES.
Don Bluth’s All Dogs Go to Heaven was first released on November 17th, 1989.
Steven Spielberg was going to be the executive producer of this film and have it released under the Amblin banner, but left the project after creative differences with director Don Bluth while they were making The Land Before Time (1988). (IMDb)
