At El Capitan preem in Hollywood for "Home on the Range," it was clear this kidpic was about the fun of cartooning rather than the art of animation. Co-director Will Finn said, "Animation has gained a great deal of dignity and importance in the last 10 years. We're here to strip away that patina of grandeur." Co-director John Sanford added, "This is a cartoon. Some people use cartoon as a pejorative. We revel in it." And Disney's animation prexy David Stainton weighed on the distinction thus, "a cartoon is to animation what Jim Carrey is to drama."
