Dad, Can I Borrow the Car?

I've often admired Ward Kimball for his fun animation at Disney, a company not exactly synonymous with that title. But in the below short, he gets downright Svankmeyer, combining mixed medium like minimal animation, pixelation/stop-motion, and the voice over of young Kurt Russell(who, even at this stage of his career, is definitely a man's actor). Why can't this side of Disney ever come back?

They won't bring this side pof Disney back because they're still trying to figure out "What would Walt do?". Also, it probably wouldn't make the kind of money they want.

P.S. I also love Ward Kimball. His work for "Alice in Wonderland" was some of his best.
