    Ward Kimball 6 finger plaque

    I took a picture of this plaque when we visited the Disney Studios - I didn't even realize that Ward Kimball had 6 fingers imprinted on the plaque. I've tried to find out what this was all about - can anyone tell me the story behind this? Did he have 6 fingers or is it an inside thing?

    It appears to be a very funny joke. Here's a picture of Ward Kimball:



    Looks like five fingers on each hand to me.

    Are those their real hand prints? Sorry for the off topic.

    I believe so - those that died before the award just had a symbol on it - no hand print.

    Re: Ward Kimball 6 finger plaque

    Ward was so talented because he had six fingers.

    It was probably just a great animator practical joke. Animators are generally pretty irreverent, and Ward while probably being honored by the award, still took a moment to be silly.

    That would be my guess.

    My favorite Ward Kimball quote: "I can't draw Mickey for sour ****!"

    Tell the truth! You photoshopped, (or should I say photo-chopped) off a finger on both hands!
