Sweatbox - At the old Disney Hyperion Studio, pencil tests of animated scenes were shown to Walt Disney for his approval originally on a Moviola in a small closet with no ventilation. Not only was it hot in the closet, but the animators were nervously awaiting Walt's reaction to their work. Thus, the room became known as a sweatbox. Even after the Studio moved to Burbank and elegant screening rooms were offered to the staff, they were still called by that name.

This is the least remembered and least recognized period for Disney. Post-Walt and Pre-Michael Eisner. But though nothing from this decade amounted to "Citizen Kane", many of the films were quite charming.
A great deal of wonderful animated movies have been made in the past few years that Walt Disney Studios have not always created and/or produced. Many other production companies have branched into kids' films. Can you tell Disney from non-Disney?
