Here again are a couple of character doodle sheets. They explore ideas for entertaining poses and situations as the kitten Berlioz from "The Aristocats"
plays the piano.
The first sheet is by Ken Anderson, the second one by Milt Kahl.
Ken is drawing the character with a Beethoven hairdo, Milt did not incorporate that idea. Neither did he animate any of those scenes for the film, perhaps at one point he was was supposed to.
I love all of these drawings. Ken seems to have endless ideas for this situation, and Milt gives Berlioz a lot of appeal by maintaining a cuddly  softness in his anatomy.
