Dance of the Fairy Godmother

Preston Blair’s most famous for his singing, dancing Red in a number of cartoons for Tex Avery at MGM. In Swing Shift Cinderella, there’s a counterpoint as the Cinderella’s hot-for-wolf fairy godmother busts a few moves of her own. She tries to appear elegant, but breaks out into enthusiastic awkwardness. Here are some of the poses.

The scene is animated on ones and twos, with Scott Bradley’s scoring of “Oh, Johnny” in perfect rhythm.

Blair, Ed Love and Ray Abrams are the credited animators.
