Milt Kahl Day
Milt designed all the characters in this film and these two sheets consist in three scenes that he animated which I love. Merlin has a great and broad acting style and I think is great. Merlin is an old guy but he is very enthusiastic and full of energy and I think it's animation reflects that.
Many animators and directors today think it is over animated and bad acting. For me, it is acting for a specific design and style and I just think it is one way of doing it. There are many ways of doing a scene and each animator would do it differently. I am glad Milt animated this way because it is just fun to watch and very much in character.
There is also that nice walk of Johnny Appleseed that is also by Milt.
