Disney Legend Milt Kahl


Milton Erwin “Milt” Kahl (March 22, 1909 – April 19, 1987) was an American animator. He was one of (and often considered the most influential of) Walt Disney’s supervisory team of animators, known as Disney’s Nine Old Men.

Kahl is often considered the finest draughtsman of the Disney animators. He would often refine the characters sketches from Bill Peet with the ideas of Ken Anderson. For many years the final look for the characters in the Disney films were designed by Kahl, in his angular style inspired by Ronald Searle and Picasso. He is revered by contemporary masters of the form, such as Andreas Deja, and Brad Bird, who was his protégé at Disney in the 60’s. In the behind-the-scenes feature “Fine Food and Film” shown on the Ratatouille DVD, Bird referred to Kahl as “tough”, but in a gentle way, as he often gave Bird advice on where he could improve in animation whenever he came up short.
