THE FOX IN THE STORK
Here are some of Milt Kahl’s sketches, trying to figure out how the fox’s body would fit inside the stork disguise. The position of the legs to manipulate the storks stiff long legs, and the way the arms grab the wings.
In the end, in the film the final result is much more free, without considering this realistic analysis much, but it is interesting to see the logic behind it.

101 Dalmatians set the mark for a different kind of animated feature as being the first “modern” animated Disney film. It had a more artistic and graphic style, which Walt was not very fond of, as he thought it was quite messy.
This can clearly be seen in this sketch by Ken Anderson, inspired by Ronald Searle. Although messy, it is alive, realistic. One can feel as if one is inside the frame, and see Roger as a modern man; a man we can identify with. And even though Walt wasn’t a fan, the audiences loved it and embraced this film quite well. In fact, it is the favorite of many people I know.
