The Mouse Castle Lounge 03-19-2015 - Disney Legend Floyd Norman, Part Two

By Tim Callaway

Floyd Norman and Tim Callaway
Floyd Norman, me and our dalmatians.
Floyd Norman loves Disney and appreciates the many years he’s worked for the company as an artist, animator, cartoonist and story man. But, he’s never been afraid to tweak the nose of management or pretentious artists that truly deserve it. If you follow Floyd on Facebook or read his Mr. Fun blog, you’ll see what I mean. Better still, visit iBooks and check out Floyd’s sharp and clever collections of gag cartoons like Suspended Animation, DISK DRIVE and Son of Faster, Cheaper.

Last week, I talked to Floyd about his early career at Disney and his work on films like Sleeping Beauty, The Sword in the Stone and The Jungle Book. Today, Floyd talks about what it was like to work for Walt Disney, John Lasseter and Steve Jobs, why he still respects former Disney CEO Michael Eisner and how Floyd rescued Thunderbolt the Wonder Dog from certain death on the Blu-ray release of 101 Dalmatians.

Give a listen to part two of my conversation with Floyd Norman in The Mouse Castle Lounge. Enjoy!
