  • What are we drawing Jason?

  • - We're drawing Disney Princesses.

  • - That's pretty cool. I didn't know that.

  • I don't know the subjects until I actually start drawing,

  • you guys, I don't know if you know that.

  • - I swear to god Jackie.

  • (cartoon music)

  • - [Announcer] Today you will be drawing,

  • Belle from Beauty and the Beast.

  • - Belle!

  • - Oh!

  • - I worked on Beauty and the Beast.

  • - Really?

  • - Yeah, but not Belle, not Belle whatsoever.

  • - You did Cogsworth.

  • - I did Cogsworth, yeah so if you put Cogsworth in a dress,

  • that must be what my drawing looks like.

  • - [Announcer] Elsa.

  • - (groans) Uh.

  • - Who's Elsa again? Is she the ice queen,

  • or is she the sister?

  • - Ice one.

  • - Okay.

  • - Like, front of the DVD box.

  • - [Announcer] Snow White.

  • - (gasps) That's my favorite Disney Princess!

  • - Seriously?

  • - Yeah! She's my favorite!

  • - Wow! You like em old school.

  • - Yeah.

  • - Cool.

  • - Well I mean, I like her aesthetic the most.

  • - Okay.

  • - [Announcer] Ready? Go!

  • - So Tony, how was your experience on Beauty and the Beast?

  • - I was actually an animating assistant

  • when I first started on Beauty and the Beast.

  • I rose up to being an animator,

  • so it was like a big promotion for me.

  • But, more than that, I just really loved the story.

  • Mostly I was doing comedy characters at Disney anyway,

  • and so I did Cogsworth the clock on Beauty and the Beast.

  • I just had a great time on that film.

  • - It's one of my favorite Disney movies.

  • - It is mine, and I've seen it a ton, and I love Belle,

  • and I have no idea what she looks like.

  • - (laughs) Same!

  • - I've only seen the first movie

  • and I thought it was just okay.

  • - Hold on, she does like, the like--

  • - Yeah.

  • - Hip walk out the door.

  • - And she has Ice Man powers, right?

  • - Yeah! She's like Ice Man from X-Men.

  • I'll put it in a context you can understand this in.

  • - (laughs)

  • - Jackie, how ya been?

  • - (signs) You know.

  • - You got a new job!

  • - I got a new job!

  • - Yeah! What are you doing?

  • - I work as a story board revisionist.

  • - Okay.

  • - I work on a show called Centaur World.

  • Shout out to my crew on Centaur World.

  • - Yeah?

  • - I love you guys!

  • - Well that's very exciting.

  • I can't wait to see it.

  • - Thanks, it'll come out one day.

  • - Yeah, a lot of people don't now how long it takes

  • to make an animated show.

  • - It takes a long time.

  • - You know what else takes a long time to make?

  • This show, everybody's so impatient.

  • When's the next drop coming out,

  • when's the next drop coming out,

  • well here it is friends.

  • - Kevin's tired of your (beep).

  • - So Tony, is there any tips that you can give

  • in terms of Disney Princess construction?

  • - It's funny you ask that because a lot of people think

  • that the Disney Princesses look very similar

  • and that Disney can basically only draw that one Ariel-type,

  • Glenn King kinda-looking female heroine.

  • But there's actually quite a bit of difference I think

  • when you look at the design of these girls.

  • The big thing is,

  • you know they tend to have big eyes, right?

  • And features very low on their face, I would say.

  • And they all end up looking like

  • Cogsworth after I draw them.

  • - (laughs) Same here.

  • - Have you seen Frozen?

  • - You know, I saw the first Frozen movie,

  • and I was not a fan.

  • But I'm also not the demographic.

  • - Right.

  • - But I saw it because everyone was just like,

  • "Oh my god! Frozen! It's incredible!"

  • And I was like, "All right, I'll watch it.

  • I like cartoons."

  • - Who doesn't like a good cartoon?

  • - And then I saw it and I was like (groan)

  • I liked the music.

  • - Did you see the Oscar-nominated Frozen 2?

  • - I did not see that one. Did you see it?

  • - Yeah, it was very bad.

  • (laughter)

  • I'm not afraid to say that on camera.

  • - I was Snow White for Halloween,

  • and I don't remember how to draw her.

  • - Since we can't really remember,

  • maybe we should just try

  • to ape the Disney style as much as possible.

  • - What makes you think I know anything

  • about the Disney style?

  • - I don't know.

  • Didn't you draw Disney characters growing up?

  • - I drew Naruto growing up.

  • - Oh that's right.

  • - And Pokemon.

  • - Okay.

  • - I didn't like Disney Princesses that much.

  • - You know what? Neither did I.

  • - Well I think it's because when I was a kid I was like,

  • "I'm not like the other girls.

  • I don't like Disney princesses."

  • (babbling noises)

  • - Is that how you spoke when you were a kid?

  • - Yeah, it was really scary.

  • I had something wrong with me.

  • - Wow. No wonder you weren't like the other girls.

  • - I'm not like the other girls.

  • I have a irritable bowel syndrome.

  • - Kyra, do you have a favorite Disney movie,

  • were you a fan of the 90's era of Disney films?

  • - I love every Disney movie,

  • it's so hard to choose which one's my favorite.

  • I really love Lilo & Stitch, The Lion King,

  • I really like the Aristocats too.

  • - Aristocats.

  • Yeah, people don't mention the Aristocats enough.

  • I think that's one of my favorites too,

  • just from a design standpoint.

  • - So Jackie.

  • - Yeah?

  • - Do you remember all seven of the dwarves?

  • Name em.
