While studying the fundamentals of animation, we looked at this classic Disney animation. I was really impressed with how many fundamentals were present in this 1920's animation which all of which are still applied today. We can see a great example of squash and stretch at 0:19 with the cylinders on the ship shooting out steam. There is also a good example of anticipation at 1:38 where the steamboat captain opens his mouth to take a bite out of his tobacco. Overall these elements make the animation very slick and dynamic, also offering humor with the over exaggerated movements.
