Emery Hawkins' specialty was very loose, very fluid movement. His characters' bodies seem less "solid" than
most of the other animators', drawn very skinny, constantly in motion, and able to change shape on a
moment's notice. He also liked to use "smear" animation to get characters from one pose to another very
quickly as in this scene in ALL A BIR-R-RD (1950).
