After Walt Disney died in 1966, Norman left the company to work on Saturday morning cartoons shows like Fat Albert and The Cosby Kids before returning to Disney productions in the 1970’s for Robin Hood.

After overcoming doubts from people that he could break into Disney because of his race, he found ageism to be the next hurdle, when he was forced into retirement at 65. But now 81, Norman works as a freelancer at  Disney and has said he plans to die at the drawing board.
