Pencil Tests

Rough animation at its finest

I had a request for something from “Pocahontas”, so here we go.

Pocahontas originally had a turkey named “Redfeather” as her sidekick animal. He was to be voiced by John Candy. But when Candy died in ‘94, they scrapped the character and did away with the talking animals all together.

Percy lost his ability to speak, and they wrote in Meeko and Flit to add a slapstick dynamic. I think it worked out, but it would be interesting to see how the movie would have turned out with a talking turkey in it.
