"Milt Kahl Sketches during WWII

On December 8, 1941, the Disney Studio was taken over by the Military as part of the war effort. Making the most of the talent that hadn’t shipped out yet, Walt Disney spent the next four years creating and producing training, propaganda and educational films for the Armed Forces.
The following sketches by Milt Kahl were obviously done during that time.

They show caricatures of servicemen and perhaps studio personal.  These sheets also look like character designs for possible propaganda shorts. And yet to my knowledge these characters were never animated.

This is the work of someone who confessed that he didn’t particularly care to draw, but  didn’t mind.
Oh, common Milt…..
