Bob Clampett of Mars?!

So apparently Robert Clampett of all people (and as an aside, I have not shown enough love to him on this blog which is downright embarrassing) approached Edgar Rice Burroughs in the 1930's to make an animated feature film based off of A Princess of Mars. Who knew?

The very little finished animation is beautiful, very Un-Clampettarian, and unlike anything from the same time period. In a weird way, it reminds me of the awesome and very strange Gene Deitch "Hobbit" animatic that resurfaced recently, in that it's a damn shame that neither of them ever became even a full short film.
