Annie award-winning Norman, 81, recreated, in real time, the very first Mickey Mouse comic, which debuted 87 years ago, on this date. He is the animator behind some of the world’s favorite Disney films, including The Jungle Book, Toy Story 2, Monsters, Inc., Mulan among others.



Viewers watching the live YouTube broadcast got a first-hand account from one of Disney’s first artists who worked alongside Walt Disney in the 1950s. Floyd discussed Disney film history and various animation techniques.

Additionally, there was an audience Question and Answer session, where Norman answered questions about animation, his first-hand experience working with Walt, and gave an inside look behind some of Disney’s most-beloved classics and more.

As an added bonus, during the live stream, Norman was behind a desk that was once used by another animator and Disney Legend Floyd Gottredson. The desk is believed to have been the origin of more Mickey Mouse drawings and sketches than any other desk in the world.

Gottfredson was an animator with The Walt Disney Company from 1929 to 1975. He was the long-time artist of the Mickey Mouse comics and animated the daily strip from January 17, 1932 until October 1, 1975 – the day he retired.
