Hal King - my 79th pick as a Disney Legend

My 79th choice Hal King was an American animator. He was notable for his work at the Walt Disney Studios.  Hal King started out like many of his contemporaries as an inbetweener on shorts in the late 1930s. His first break into feature animation was on the Three Caballeros, a Latin American-influenced film made in 1944. 

His animation credits at Disney included Donald's Snow Fight, Donald Gets Drafted, The Vanishing Private, Fall Out-Fall In, The Old Army Game, Home Defense, The Three Caballeros, Duck Pimples, Hockey Homicide, The Whale Who Wanted to Sing at the Met segment of Make Mine Music, Wet Paint, Lighthouse Keeping, Song of the South, Clown of the Jungle, Fun and Fancy Free, the Once Upon a Wintertime and Blame It on the Samba segments of Melody Time, So Dear to My Heart, The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad, Cinderella, Test Pilot Donald, Alice in Wonderland, Susie the Little Blue Coupe, Peter Pan, Ben and Me, Lady and the Tramp, Sleeping Beauty, Goliath II, One Hundred and One Dalmatians, Donald and the Wheel, The Sword in the Stone, the Disneyland episode "Your Host, Donald Duck", the Walt Disney Presents episode "The Adventures of Chip 'n' Dale", the Walt Disney's Wonderful World of Color episodes "Kids is Kids" and "Man on Wheels", The Jungle Book, The Aristocats, Bedknobs and Broomsticks, Robin Hood and Winnie the Pooh and the Honey Tree and Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day. (in which the two featurettes are later part of The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, along with Winnie the Pooh and Tigger Too!).
