To kick off the new year, I wanted to finally share a bit of inspiration I’ve been having lately (especially in light of the recent Blu-Ray releases): Walt Disney cartoon titles from the “Original Classics”, i.e. Cinderella or Sleeping Beauty. In a rare opportunity some time ago, I wanted to watch a few of the old Disney cartoons while working and was able to find Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty — even Lady and the Tramp — in full on YouTube.
Since it’s been some time, I had forgotten just how wonderfully the animation intros were originally done — complete with lovely type and hand painted illustrations. (Check out Sleeping Beauty too!)
Here are some shots from Cinderella.
