Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

[on his last conversation with Walt Disney] He sat down in a chair in my office and we talked for awhile. Then he got up and said "Goodbye". I never knew him to say goodbye to anyone in his life. He'd always say see you next week or something like that. See more »


His final work at Disney was animating villainess Cruella De Ville in One Hundred and One Dalmatians (1961). He animated the entire character himself as opposed to previous films where he would be responsible for a group of animators. The character is often considered to be his masterpiece. See more »
