Did someone say Olympics? Remember LA '84?

Back in 1984 the Disney Studios sent a group of us animators as the "Official Artists" representing the studio to entertain the athletes.  Five of us were chosen, we had a wonderful time, Marc Davis and his wife Alice joined us as well.  Here we are in front of  our old stomping grounds, the Animation Building on the main lot in Burbank.  Yes, thats yours truly (standing) amongst my very talented colleagues Mark Henn, Andreas Deja (sitting, back row) and Joe Lansisero, Ron Husband (sitting, front row)... ah memories...
