"I don't hardly think that a way will come in which they can draw those comic book panels on the monitor screen with a mouse. It may be that they can. It may be that that's the form it will take – just make up these whole comic book pages on the screen and draw in all the things with the mouse. It wouldn't have the spontaneity, the look of reality that you get from drawing these out with the blue pencil... You get a thoroughness in the expression and all which I don't think you could ever get with a mouse and a line on the computer. I remember what Mark Davis, who was one of Disney's 'Nine Old Men," had to say about The Lion King, that they looked liked stuffed lions. Yeah, his opinion of animation done with the mouse was that it never quite came up with a real expression that looked genuine, or an action that looked genuine."
