Who is Floyd?
Floyd Norman is an animator, comic book artist, and script writer who made history in 1956 by becoming the first African American cartoon animator at the Disney studios, where he worked directly with Walt Disney. Over the course of his career, Norman has worked for a number of animation companies, among them Walt Disney Animation Studios, Hanna-Barbera Productions, Ruby-Spears, Film Roman, and Pixar. His most notable work includes Sleeping Beauty, The Sword in the Stone, The Jungle Book, Mary Poppins, One Hundred and One Dalmatians, Toy Story 2, Monsters, Inc., and the Mickey Mouse comic strip. After finishing work in 2001 on Monsters, Inc., Norman officially retired. However, to this day he likes to keep involved in the business by doing occasional work as a freelance consultant and storyboard artist on various projects. Now in his 80s, he's traveling and promoting his documentary Floyd Norman: An Animated Life.
