Happy Birthday Floyd Norman

Disney studios hosted a birthday celebration yesterday at their Grand Central campus in Glendale for Disney Legend Floyd Norman. Norman – who started his career assisting cartoonist Bill Woggin (Katy Keene), then began at Disney in 1956, contributing to numerous features including Sleeping Beauty, The Jungle Book, Toy Story 2 as well as Fat Albert, Sesame Street and numerous television shows – turned 80 yesterday, but he’s the youngest 80 year old you’ll ever meet.

Imagineer Bob Gur, songwriter Richard Sherman, animator/voice artist Tony Anselmo and dozens of colleagues gathered to wish Floyd another eighty.
