Frolicking along with his pals Eeyore, Tigger, Piglet, Kanga and little Roo Pooh lives beloved in the memories of millions. Answer To Last Week's Puzzle About 30 Disney employees in Hollywood do what Webster calls "all the creative work: writing, soundtracks., direction, character design, all the color. We wrap all that up and send it to Japan, and it's animated there, inked and printed there, photographed there. They send it back and we put in the music and the sound effects." American TV animation first started moving to Japan several years ago because it could be done cheaper there. But Webster says that as the yen has grown more valuable "the dollar is worth half as much there as it was four years ago" cost is no longer the reason. "The main reason," he said, "is that the talent pool is so much bigger there. They have a tremendous domestic market There are several large studios there, and they're surrounded by hundreds of subcontracting firms, some with only about 10 people. We probably have 300 people in Japan Continued from Page 4 cheapest TV animation, those stiff pictures in which only the mouths move. No young viewer is likely to feel shortchanged by insufficient movement on The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh. Pooh is the first "classic" character that the Disney studio has developed into a children's TV series. Disney's other current cartoon series are The Gummi Bears on NBC, and Duck Tales in syndication. Pooh previously appeared for Disney only in four theatrical short subjects some years ago. In recent years, American TV animation has been substantially farmed out to Japan. So it's no surprise to hear that Pooh, well-traveled already through translations of his books, is spending a lot of time in Japan while making his TV debut. Michael Webster, Disney's vice president for TV animation, explained the production process in a recent interview. D D R YjE R " ARM REPORTAGE.
