When Tyrus Wong died at the end of last year, I thought for sure he was the last of the Disney artists who had worked on Bambi, but I was wrong! One of the credited animators is still alive: Don Lusk! He's 103 now (born October 28, 1913).



In Walt's time, an animator only got screen credit if they produced 350 ft. of animation. Don's specialty was small animals, so he must have done a lot of work on Bambi!



Two instantly-recognizable scenes animated by Don Lusk.





Here he is receiving the Winsor McKay Award in 2015. (His great-grandson accepted the award at the actual presentation ceremony.)
