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.
Sometimes when people don’t stop talking… know the feeling?

DISNEY FUN FACT- THE 1970s ANIMATION PROCESS
This film’s credits at the start is one of my favorites! I love the presentation of all the various characters in a parade kind of way, as well as the introduction of the main characters as if it were a sitcom.
I also adore to see all the names of the animators, art and story directors. It’s always incredible to see the names of my animation idols and to know the different responsibilities they had for each film. I love it.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY ROBIN HOOD

Happy birthday to all its transcendent characters!
To commemorate the date, Im gonna watch it today.
INTERVIEWING MILT KAHL ABOUT ROBIN HOOD
It’s not very usual you come into some footage of Walt Disney’s great animators (particularly from the Nine Old Men), talking or promoting their characters and films.
Before Robin Hood was released, Woolie Reitherman and Milt Kahl went on tour to talk about the new Disney Feature. This clip shows Milt answering questions during a TV show in Dallas in 1973.
The interviewer doesn’t know much about animation or about who the hell Milt is, so Im surprised at how patient he is with her, specially since she keep talking over him. Still, it is amazing to hear what he has to say, he is such a master.
