He was the subject of major retrospective exhibitions in New York, San Francisco, and New York, was named a Disney Legend, and was featured in Pamela Tom’s award-winning documentary Tyrus (2015). He passed away in December 2016 at the age of 106. In celebration of Tyrus’ magnificent life and prolific body of work, hear from Oscar®-nominated Pixar writer and director Ronnie del Carmen, filmmaker Pamela Tom, and Tyrus’ daughter Kim as they reflect on the life and work of this creative genius.
