    • Mike: Sad news to report, Disney Legend Ruthie Tompson passed away at the age of 111! Said Bob Iger: “Ruthie was a legend among animators, and her creative contributions to Disney—from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs to The Rescuers—remain beloved classics to this day. While we will miss her smile and wonderful sense of humor, her exceptional work and pioneering spirit will forever be an inspiration to us all.”
