Jon Medford sent me this pic of ALLEN after he finished doing his interview for the NEW MAD MONSTER PARTY DVD documentary. ALLEN did all of the male and monster voices for the film! He is a living legend that did many of the voices on THE HOWDY DOODY SHOW, DIVER DAN, etc. etc. Very happy that Allen was able to participate!

Boy, am I gald I didn't listen to the reviewers at AMAZON on this book. This book is just as good as any of the other of the PIXAR Art of books...maybe even a little better. Tim Hauser did a bang up job! PIXAR also cites RANKIN/BASS as a HUGE influence on the film. They were trying to create that "Animagic" type look and feel, since it was to be in 3-D. I would love to storyboard the next PIXAR classic. After I did my first post about UP, two weeks later I heard the WGN radio morning team saying the same exact things about the heart and warmth, awful trailers from the PIXAR copy cats, etc.
