I worked on this..
1 July 2017 | by yatz5845See all my reviews

It was a pleasure working on The Willows in Winter, as a cell painter. I have some very fond memories and a few copied cells on my walls. I think this was a lovely piece of work, I like to watch it at Christmas. Excellent example of great British hand made animation at its best. The Wind in the Willows was just as good.
