*Comments On Style: *
Based on Youngquist’s animation segment *The Pastoral
Symphony* in *Fantasia (1940):

“Bob Youngquist appears again, and he animates the cupids as he did
in the previous sequences - although he doesn't animate a lot of
scenes - but he gets to handle them primary in this sequence.
Although, shot 30 with the cherubs hiding in the temple have some pretty
crude facial expressions… Is it me or was Bob Youngquist not a very good
animator or one of the "bland ones" - because some of his shots here are
not so convincing.”
