Inbetween drawings for »Thru the Mirror«
When Carl Barks began to work at the Disney Studio he was first assigned the job of an inbetweener. An inbetweener is an assistant to the animator; he is responsible for filling in the single frames between the key poses defined by the animator. Films on which Barks worked in this position include the Silly Symphony cartoon »Three Little Wolves« (released 14 April 1936) and the Mickey Mouse cartoon »Thru the Mirror« (30 May 1936), both directed by Dave Hand. The scene shown here is from »Thru the Mirror«.
