D.B. Sweeney: The Idea of making the Best Animated Film was made and there really isn't reason why not. The Design of "My Fair Madeline" occured cause i love Children's Books that were done by many great Children's Authors.

When i came to Disney, i told them that i'm going to make a Madeline Feature Film with new Special Effects that were never before been done by Hand. It took lots of great Hollywood Animators who works with me. They have a hibrante Style so that they can fit into this.

D.B. Sweeney's intro for VHS release
D.B. Sweeney: Hello, i'm D.B. Sweeney. It's been many years since i've first worked with Walt Disney, Jim Henson and Don Bluth. I'm the President of Walt Disney Animation Studios. I never stop listening to Walt Disney talking about his Ideas of Animated Films. Breaking new Ground in Animation, Sound and Technology. In 1987, Tony Geiss and Judy Freudberg wrote the Screenplay for a Film that shows never before seen Special Effects by Hand, also breaking new Grounds that was not attempted before. In a suggestion of Steven Spielberg and George Lucas, it was called "My Fair Madeline" and we worked on this project from the 80s and 90s. But it wasn't the first time that it'd startle Audiences with Breath taking Animation.
Clip: Steamboat Willie.
D.B. Sweeney: Walter Elias Disney was the first to Syncronize Sound in the Animated Short Film, Steamboat Willie.
Clip: Flowers and Trees.
D.B. Sweeney: Flowers and Trees was the first Color Cartoon. In the mid 30s, Walt and his Team developed the Multiplane Camera that will give startling new depth to Animation.
Clip: The Old Mill.
D.B. Sweeney: It was put to wonderful use and it was first used in the Academy Award winning Short, The Old Mill.
Clip: Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.
D.B. Sweeney: But the perfect example is the first Animated Feature Length Motion Picture, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.
D.B. Sweeney: In 1940, when they made Fantasia, Walt elevated the Art of Animation once again when he developed the first use of multitrack stereophonic Sound to approximate Concert going experience. At Walt Disney Animation Studios, we continue the tradtion of innovation.
