Bob Morales (Ritchie Valens brother) Worked With Disney?
So I was watching La Bamba and I wanted to find out more information about Ritchie Valens' brother Bob Morales. I searched him online and it says that he worked with Disney. Does anyone know what characters he drew up?

Morales, 50, who has lived in Watsonville since the early '70s, once wanted to be a fireman and, later on, an illustrator. He saved many animated gels from Walt Disney's Buena Vista's studios when he worked briefly as a garbage collector, he said. (The film, however, shows him finding Woody Woodpecker and Buzz Buzzard gels at Columbia Pictures--"La Bamba's" distributor.)
After many family difficulties and some trouble with the law, he finally matured and settled down. He worked as a counselor in a drug/alcohol abuse program in the '70s and today is married with eight children and is self-employed as an upholsterer-mechanic.
