Happy Birthday Ollie Johnston

Just to let you know that today is Ollie Johnston's birthday which is Halloween and if he was still alive - he'd had turned 98.

Ollie was such a brilliant animator and he and Frank himself, learnt the basics on making animated characters real instead of just tracing them and making them move. Ollie's characters were believeable and he worked very hard to make the audiences believe it.
Johnston was the last animator of the Nine Old Men to die and passed away on April 14, 2008 at the age of 95.
