Danny, Wilmer, Ashton, and Topher on The Donny and Marie Osmond Talk Show – 2.25.1999. That ‘70s Show had just been picked up for a second season. Definitely worth the watch. Ashton’s totally like the class clown who can’t quite sit still during class. *lol*
Hyrum Osmond was the supervising animator for Olaf, but he volunteered to animate Prince Hans for one particular moment during the number Love Is An Open Door.
In a phone conversation with Yahoo Movies, Osmond said, “I requested that shot, just because I knew that that was the perfect moment to kind of pepper in that Donny Osmond feel to it.”
Hyrum’s father is George Virl Osmond Jr., the eldest of Donny’s seven brothers.
“Obviously we were exposed to the Donny and Marie show. We were on set a lot,” Hyrum said. “And me and my brothers and sisters almost playfully mocked our uncles with their signature move, which was basically sort of a tilted head, eyes squinting, with the raising of their arm or arms as they belt out that note.”
So when it was time for Hans to hit his high note, Osmond wanted to pay tribute to that move. “I just thought it was a perfect moment to kind of hit the Donny Osmond pose there.”
