#3 Shere Khan - Disney's The Jungle Book (1967)
Kahl certainly made his mark animating the Disney Princes in the Golden Age, along with fun-loving characters like Br'er Rabbit (seen left), Peter Pan, Pinocchio, Alice, Lady & the Tramp, Pongo & Roger and of course Tigger. Yet, with Shere Khan we see this master draftsman animate one of Disney's most complex villains.
On animating this devious tiger, Kahl said: “The stripes helped give it shape but on every drawing I knew where the weight was coming from, and where the weight is just traveling, and where the weight is transferring to.”
