    Though not an overwhelming success, I think " The Hunchback of Notre Dame " was one of the most sophisticated animated films I've ever worked on. I actually went to my old pal, Gary Trousdale when I got word that he and his co-director Kirk Wise might be adapting this Victor Hugo novel for the screen...

    The old battered drawing table sat in the corner of my office at the Walt Disney Studio. Though it occupied the corner for a number of years, I never worked on it.
