Milt Kahl Day
Brom Bones from Ichaboad is one of my favorite. The animation is broad but not over done and displays a high level of draftsmanship. I really like the scene where the short girl is dancing with Brom Bones. I don't even know how he could plan a scene like that. It is so inventive and entertaining that I keep watching over and over again to try to understand how it was done.
The Duke, from Cinderella is also really good, not all the scenes, just Milt's. The sequence where he is jumping up and down with the King in the bed was done by Norman Ferguson and I really do not like that one but the ones that Milt did were amazing.
I guess these days, animation like that are considered over animated. Directors today tend to like a more subtle kind of animation.
