The Odd Couple Starring Walter Cronkite and Robin Williams
25 August 2018 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

This short cartoon was the brainchild of Jerry Rees. He believed that the tour at the Disney Florida Studio concentrated on the technical side of animation, the part that every studio did. To illustrate the creative side, he wanted Robin Williams as a tourist who gets turned into an animated "Lost Boy" from Peter Pan, and Walter Cronkite, the staid, trustworthy news anchorman, to serve as balance... and possibly remind people of Walt Disney himself. Both, as it turned out, admired each other. According to witnesses, they passed the tme with each other telling dirty jokes.

Tobin Williams ad-libbed so much that they extended the recording session and John Clements and Ron Musker had the role of the Genie in ALADDIN specifically written for Williams.
