Walt Disney Studios says legendary animator Ollie Johnston has died at age 95.

Studio Vice President Howard Green says Johnston died of natural causes yesterday at a long-term care facility in Sequim (skwim), Wash.

Johnston was the last of Walt Disney’s so-called Nine Old Men.

He contributed animation and direction to classics such as “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs,” “Pinocchio,” “Fantasia,” “Song of the South,” “Cinderella,” and “Alice in Wonderland.”
