Macy's Christmas Animated Window Display

Back in the late 90's I had the pleasure of helping to develop the Christmas window display for Macy's Herald Square in NYC. It was based on a sweet little animated short from "Mickey's Once Upon a Christmas" 
I went to Florida on behalf of Disney and worked with the fabricator (Creative Arts) who did a fantastic job on the whole thing. I lost the original drawings long ago but I recently found these photos online of the finished windows. It was really fun and dare I say magical.
Keep in mind that most of the characters were animated with simple movements so you can imagine the budget on this thing....man, those were the days.

Fun with Pooh

Again, from many moons ago.
This is one of those few occasions when the final product actually looked pretty close to the original concept sketch.
