Cut 36. This interesting image shows Nils being grabbed off the ground in the large talons of a raptor, whom I’m pretty sure must be Gorgo, the eagle whom the little adventurer rescues from a cage. This leads to a complicated (and canonical) adventure, in which the two find their ways back to the goose flock. While Nils looks tired (as you might be if you’d spent the night filing through the wires of a cage) he’s clearly happy to be carried off in this fashion. Sequence number: A12

Lagerlöf’s book describes how Gorgo first carries Nils in his claws, then allows him to ride on his back. So I think it’s likely that the following cel (which came up for auction at the same time) also shows Nils (and Carrot) riding with Gorgo.
