the disney short WINDOW CLEANERS was released sept. 1940, the main characters are donald duck and pluto. storywise it is similar to the earlier short CLOCK CLEANERS. and other similarities are the incredible perspective shots. that’s why I always liked these two films a lot. especially in ‘window cleaners’ there is a pan starting with an upshot and panning down in a slight curve that always made me curious how that BG looked like in its entire length. below you can see it.

Hans, I believe that both these films had layouts by Ken O’Connor. CLOCK CLEANERS certainly did, and these are stylistically very similar.
