This is outrageous and you're clearly doing it again! You've even retitled
this 'original' as if it's you're own work, when it is recognisably a
retouch of Walt Harvards 1943 short film for which he was largely
discredited, accused of stealing Albert Finklestein's ideas and preliminary
sketches from 1941, which themselves turned out to be a plagiarism of a
cartouche found in the tomb of Archenarchenarchenen. When will this deceipt
end?

The only saving grace is your excellent colorization work, enabling this
classic to be appreciated by a whole new generation.
