Edgar Roughs

These are some animated roughs of Madame Bonfamille’s butler, Edgar, from Disney’s classic The Aristocats.

These were made by the incredible Milt Kahl, who in fact did not care much about the film, but really enjoyed and gave a 100% when animating his character. He accomplished the most amazing facial expressions and the way he moved… UGH! Flawless. This man is a genius.

KEN ANDERSON: A WELL-ROUND DISNEY LEGEND


This man did EVERYTHING. Generally animators focused in one or two categories which to explore in animation. Not Ken Anderson. He studied architecture, and secured at position at Disney where ha contributed throughout his career as an art director, screenwriter, animator, production designer, short-story author and imagineer. 

These are all concept art he did for various Disney films, but he participated in so much more, and those films wouldn’t have been what they were without him. Andreas Deja describes his work as art that  shows how to place characters in an environment in a way that presents mood combined with character development”.

He received the Disney Legend award as for animation and imagineering in 1991, an honour that recognizes people who made outstanding contribution to the Walt Disney Company.

The film is noted for being the last film project to be approved by Walt Disney himself, as he died in late 1966, before the film was released.

SENIOR TANGO
Here, Milt Kahl portrays a very charming and elegant parisian woman and an old lawyer young at heart.
They work amazingly together in the scene; the contrast in their personalities allows for interesting character animation.
I love it when seniors dance, but eventually the tango has to come to an end.

THE ARISTOCATS KITTENS

To me, this film is very underrated. Many claim this 1970’s classic to be one of their all-time favorites. When released, it was very well received, specially in Europe, and Marie has become a major Merchandise superstar, particularly in Japan.

These are some exploratory sketches by Ken Anderson, and show how early in production they tried to clearly differentiate the look of each of the three kittens through proportions, attitudes and coloring. They ended up with a diva lady, a painter and a musician, with quite the personalities. They went through quite the process too, first with Ken and then going through Milt Kahl’s refinement and Ollie Johnston’s very personal animation.

Back then, haden’t even decided the name of the third kitten. Before Toulouse, they considered naming him Napoleon and also Dopey. Maybe they scrapped that last one out because two Dopeys in Disney would be too much, specially because of how popular Snow White’s lovable dwarfs was.
