Disney Legend #10: Wolfgang Reitherman

Wolfgang Reitherman was another of Disney's "Nine Old Men". He joined the Disney Studios alongside two other Disney Legends- Milt Kahl and Ward Kimball. Together they animated many of Disney's classic cartoons including The Band Concert.

"Woolie" as he was known around the studio, became a reliable director at Disney who worked right up until his untimely death in 1985. Not only did he create memorable characters, but he also provided three sons who were the voices of Christopher Robin, Mowgli and Wart.
