Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

[his response to the suggestion that the animators of Fantasia must have worked under the influence of hallucinogens] I myself was addicted to Ex-Lax and Feenamint.

Trivia:

Created Goofy and Geppetto in Pinocchio (1940), but his involvement with the Disney cartoonists' strike of 1941 started a feud that ended up with his almost complete expunging from any official studio history. See more »
