Frank Thomas Drawings From "Pinocchio"

Frank Thomas was part of the legendary "Nine Old Men", a group of core Disney animators, joining Disney in 1934. He went on to co-write the animator's bible The Illusion of Life with Ollie Johnston (another of the Nine Old Men). His work included the wicked Stepmother (in Cinderella), the Queen of Hearts (in Alice In Wonderland), and Captain Hook (in Peter Pan). He passed away on September 8, 2004. Thomas and Johnston have made cameos in Brad Bird's movies "Iron Giant" and "The Incredbiles".

Disney got that term from Franklin D Roosevelt calling his supreme court the nine old men. ::shrugs::
