Trivia / Plane Crazy

  • Doing It for the Art: Ub Iwerks, the sole animator on the short, in an effort to topple animator Bill Nolan's record of 500 drawings in a single day, pushed himself to animate 700 drawings a day, and ended up animating the entirety of Plane Crazy in two weeks!
  • No Budget: The short was made on a shoestring budget of roughly 1,700+$ ($23,655 in 2015 money), and was part of why Iwerks had to animate the entire cartoon in two weeks notice. The entire film was animated in Walt's garage, and their camera wasn't even capable of doing a trucking shot, so they had to stack books below the background to give the illusion of it.
