Ollie Johnston, the last of the Nine Old Men at Disney, has passed away:


Among the billions of other things he did at Disney, he was chief animator for the "Bare Necessities" dance in The Jungle Book and for the characters Prince John and Sir Hiss in Robin Hood, two of my all-time favorite films.

I have studied animation for over thirty years, and I feel as though I have lost a friend. Goodbye, Ollie, and tell Frank hello for all of us.
