Again I must confess to having a very limited knowledge of Disney's second-stringers, so I don't recognize any of the names here. "Mickey's Delayed Date" has never ranked among my favourites, due to what I consider to be a somewhat watered down design of Mickey and Minnie following my prefered designs as they appeared in the previous few years (as in "The Little Whirlwind"). However, I always enjoyed Pluto's appearance in this cartoon, especially those close-up expressions attributed to Kreisl. I suspect he may have worked on many of the other Pluto cartoons I really like, such as "Pluto's Christmas Tree". Perhaps that is a cartoon that you and Hans could provide some info on at some later date.

Hi, Peter! By chance, I do have Pluto's Xmas Tree (as it is called on the draft). It shows that it was animated in its entirety by Kreisl, Fred Moore, Volus Jones and Bill Justice. Kreisl did a LOT on that one! I will scan it one of these days so you can see it on my blog. It is the first short draft I have encountered with as many as 13 pages...
