Mr. Sporn also begins his own look at Maurice's Career starting at Disney Studio. You can read his thoughts HERE.
Maurice had tried to get across a more graphic approach to design several times while working at the Disney Studios. He told me that he had tried "something graphic and daring" with the forest fire sequence in Bambi. But the powers in charge always went with his more realistic approaches. However on Dumbo, Maurice had a chance to play graphically... and the results are what we now know as the infamous Pink Elephant Sequence.
