Ward's work is easily recognizable for his characters' bouncy and often wacky movements. Among his most noted animation included the crows in ''Disney/{{Dumbo}}'', the demented Nazi take on the Sleeping Beauty story in ''WesternAnimation/EducationForDeath'', the surreal title song of ''Disney/TheThreeCaballeros'', Lucifer in ''Disney/{{Cinderella}}'' and the Mad Matter and Tweedles Dee & Dum in ''Disney/AliceInWonderland''. He made his directorial debut for the short-lived "[[WesternAnimation/AdventuresInMusicDuology Adventures in Music]]" series, the second of the two, ''Toot, Whistle, Plunk and Boom'', won an UsefulNotes/AcademyAward.

During the first half of the 1950s, Thomas animated some of Disney's most memorable villains, including Lady Tremaine in ''Disney/{{Cinderella}}'', the Queen of Hearts in ''Disney/AliceInWonderland'' and Captain Hook in ''Disney/PeterPan''. After that, he was assigned to ''Disney/LadyAndTheTramp'', where he most famously animated the iconic SpaghettiKiss, and then helped work with the tree good fairies in ''Disney/SleepingBeauty'' with his lifelong friend and fellow animator Ollie Johnston.

In the 1960s, Frank worked on such scenes as Roger reviving a a newborn puppy in ''Disney/OneHUndredAndOneDalmatians'' and the Wizards' duel in ''Disney/TheSwordInTheStone''. One of his most famous and emotional scenes would occur in the ''Disney/TheJungleBook'', where Baloo has to bring himself to tell Mowgli that he has to back to the man-village. In the 1970s, he animated the geese and dogs in ''Disney/TheAristocats'', Disney/RobinHood disguised as a stork, and a lot of scenes of Bernard and Bianca in ''Disney/TheRescuers'', which he considered his best film without Walt Disney. He retired in January 1978 during production of ''Disney/TheFoxAndTheHound''

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.
