"Clair de Lune" was fully animated and scored when it was deleted from Fantasia in early 1940, a casualty of Fantasia's excessive length. In February 1942, inking, painting and technicolor photography were completed for "Clair de Lune" as a short subject, but it was not released. In 1946 it was edited , reshaped and re-scored as the popular music sequence "Blue Bayou" in "Make Mine Music". Previous attempts to recreate "Clair de Lune" were frustrated by missing animation and Stokowski footage. A nitrate workprint of the original version located in 1992 has allowed "Clair de Lune" to be completely reconstructed as Walt Disney intended it to be seen.
