The commercial was produced by Pepper films and co-directed by my good friend, the talented Rune Bennicke, who also designed the young Tiger and the bear. The animation was done in Spain at Sergio Pablos studio, Animagic.
I was hired to do layout poses, model sheets and key drawings for the animators and here are some of them. The bear in blue lines are for the model sheet and the young Tiger drawings were key drawings to help the animators keep their scenes consistent. The sequence of 4 drawings with the bear walking are also key drawings for the animator of the scene.
It was a fun project to work on.

I am glad that the ruff was copied before it was cleaned up, otherwise we would not have this to compare because it was done on the same drawing.
Note how much information was already there in Milt's ruff drawing and what the assistant did by just erasing and connecting some lines and keeping the volumes consistent.
At that time, each animator had their own team of assistants that did the rough inbetweens and cleanup and they would work together for years.

I still think Milt did an amazing job on this, design wise and animation.
