His only directorial effort was a sequence director on ''Disney/SleepingBeauty'' (he was originally going to direct ''WesternAnimation/TheSmallOne'' before it was handed over to Creator/DonBluth). As the 1960s drew on, he animated less and less on the features, such as the farm animals in ''Film/MaryPoppins'' and the vultures in ''Disney/TheJungleBook'', before quitting altogether in 1973 to head Disney's training program, teaching a new generation of animators. Among these younger animators he mentored would become be key players UsefulNotes/TheRenaissanceAgeOfAnimation, including Creator/GlenKeane, John Musker and Creator/JohnLasseter. Larson would remain at Disney as a mentor and consultant until he retired in 1986. He died in 1988, and the prince in ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid'' was named in his honor.
