John Sibley - my 145th pick as a Disney Legend

Animator John Animator is my 145th pick to be named a Disney Legend.  The following is a quote form the 50 Most Influential Disney Animators Blog: "Sibley is known best for being the Goof master at Disney for many years. He animated Goofy on over 40 shorts and really did some of the greatest stuff on the character ever done. He also did lots of entertaining, brilliant animation in other shorts and in features. However John unfortunately was viewed down upon as a B-animator and hasn’t gotten the recognition that he deserves. This is a shame because he’s a very unique talent and one we’ll never see anybody like again."
He worked on several films and shorts, including:

The Reluctant Dragon (1941)
Three Caballeros (1944)
The Legend of Sleepy Hollow (1949)
Goofy Gymnastics (short) (1949)
Motor Mania (1950)
Lady and the Tramp (1955)
Sleeping Beauty (1959)
One Hundred and One Dalmations (1961)
The Sword and the Stone (1963)
Winnie the Pooh and the Honey Tree (1966)
