Today we continue looking at background art from RUNAWAY BRAIN.

The mad doctor in the film is named Dr. Frankenollie. Today's third B/G is the Frankenollie nameplate. This was, of course, the young animators' tribute to Frank Thomas and Ollie Johnston.

Very fitting we have this today. This evening is Ollie Johnston's memorial service at the El Capitan theatre. I'll be joining friends, family, Disney company colleagues and animation enthusiasts in a special evening, celebrating Ollie's life and artistic legacy.
