memory lane 1 > Sullivan Bluth Studios : Clean Up Dept 1987

This is the clean up crew for Don Bluths feature :
' The Land Before Time ' taken in 1987.
This was just before our supervisor Vera Lanpher-Pacheco moved on to London to work on the Roger Rabbit feature in 1988. That's Vera in the front center. { The one with the shorter skirt } Today Vera is the Clean -Up supervisor for Disney's newest traditional feature : ' The Princess and the Frog '.
She passed the torch to me to supervise the next feature as well as inheriting one of the studios live-in cats ' Bennie '.
Amazing cat. All 20 pounds of him :-)
Some of you may remember him.

Some of the peoples names in the crowd:

Vera Lanpher { Pacheco }, Me { I'm standing in the back row, last guy on the far right }, Annette Byrne Morel, Ashley McGovern, Michael Carey, Mick Cassidy, Eileen Conway, Nollaig Crombie, Thomas Daly, Denis Deegan, Mary Delaney, Peter Donnelly, Sylvia Fitzpatrick, Alan Fleming, Connor Flynn, Michael Garry, Ben Burgess, Edward { Eddie } Goral, Anne Heeney, Silvia Hoefnagels, Paul J.
