When I was working on Home on the Range I had an assignment to animate the duck dancing in a weird ridiculous way. I was working in the Florida studio at the time, miles away from the directors who were in California, so I had not talked with them yet about how they wanted the duck to dance. I right away thought about the funny Elaine dancing in one of the episodes of Seinfeld and to my surprise, I got a called from the directors telling me to make the duck dancing like Elaine. They had the episode recorded and it was sent to me in Florida so I could refer to it. The scene is short and I wished it was a little longer to register better. I animated the best way I could and I guess it turned out OK. In the end they decided to flip the drawings over so the duck would face screen right.
