Milt Kahl’s cleaned-up pencil animation for Brom Bones from Disney’s The Legend of Sleepy Hollow (1949).
Here’s what legendary animator Andreas Deja had to say about Kahl’s work on Brom:
"Milt animated the introduction of the town’s bully Brom Bones as well as his big song number at the Van Tassel party. He is a rich character, full of confidence and full of himself. Milt’s animation shows just the right amount of dash and bounce. Although the style of the film is pretty cartoony, Brom Bones’ physique required careful and somewhat realistic draughtsmanship in terms of anatomy.
"Milt was just perfect for this kind of an assignment. No live action reference here, that’s why the animation feels so wonderfully loose.This was great inspiration for myself, when I started work on Gaston in Beauty & The Beast. Although I did end up using some live action reference, I tried to avoid rotoscoped looking animation."Brom Bones and Gaston have a few things in common such as an overbearing personality, and they are both after one girl. Then again, Brom ends up with Katrina while Gaston fell to his death…or did he?"
