Floyd Norman’s Appearance On The View


The first black animator that Walt Disney ever hired appeared on The View today. Floyd Norman appeared today ( Tuesday) on The View. Contrary to popular opinion Walt Disney was open enough to hire Floyd Norman, who was instrumental in developing animations for Micky Mouse and for Donald Duck. He is now publishing a book highlighting black characters for an updated version of the Jungle Book.

Floyd said he really liked working for Disney and that Disney often walked around at night to see what was going on. He was a pretty hands on manager.
