Retta Scott

On the Trail Concept Art (Walt Disney, c. 1940s)

Retta Scott

On the Trail Concept Art (Walt Disney, c. 1940s). This unproduced Disney film featured an American Indian boy and his burro who explore the land outside their pueblo in the Grand Canyon Region. The film was written about in the Charles Solomon book The Disney That Never Was (Hyperion, 1995). These never-before-seen painted character designs are from the hand of Retta Scott, and showcase the secondary characters the boy would meet on his travels. There is a rattlesnake, an American Indian Road Runner, a Longhorn, and an American Indian Kachina named Kumbi Nataka (based on the actual Kachina deity Kumbi Natacka). Gouache and pastel on 12 field 5-peghole animation paper. Fantastic character designs and in Fine condition. From the Retta Scott Archives.
