    Awful news! He was the last of the 9 Old Men!

    His legacy will live on, but I feel sorry for his friends and family.

              I heard about this from almost two hours ago, but didn't know where to post it. Thanks for finally starting the thread.

              There are no words. This is a truly painful loss. While there is a great legacy that he has left behind in characters and stories, he was the last living connection to an era where it all began. That era is truly history now and that is worth crying over.

              I am just happy he is with his wife and friends again.

                    Legendary Disney animator dies at 95

                    LOS ANGELES, California (AP) -- Walt Disney Studios says legendary animator Ollie Johnston has died at age 95.
                    Studio Vice President Howard Green says Johnston died of natural causes on Monday at a long-term care facility in Sequim, Washington.
                    Johnston was the last of Walt Disney's so-called Nine Old Men.
                    He contributed animation and direction to classics such as "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs," "Pinocchio," "Fantasia," "Song of the South," "Cinderella," and "Alice in Wonderland."

                        An end of an era has truly passed, but on the other hand Walt has his whole team together again, and who knows what they are working on up there.

                          This is very sad, but your right squashandstretch, they are all together again, and atleast he had a full, fullfilling life, I think that he was even able to do some interviews for the 101 Dalmatians DVD.
