Richard Williams, who I gather from his book on animation, is a huge fan of “you need to put as much life in your characters as you can” theory of animation. Boy howdy does Thief and Cobbler show it. Now, since this is an unfinished movie, unfinished scenes are filled in with storyboards. There is little to no dialogue (some by vincent price!) but it doesn’t need it.
