Kenneth Lee "Ken" Muse was an American animator.
Muse worked briefly at Walt Disney Studio, where he was Preston Blair's assistant on Fantasia (he helped animate "The Sorcerer's Apprentice" scenes). He also provided animation for various Donald Duck cartoons, such as The Autograph Hound (1939), Donald's Dog Laundry (1940), Mr. Duck Steps Out (1940), Put-Put Troubles (1940), and Donald's Garden (1942), as well as Mickey Mouse cartoons, such as Mr. Mouse Takes a Trip (1940), The Little Whirlwind (1941), A Gentleman's Gentleman (1941), Canine Caddy (1941), Mickey's Birthday Party (1942), and Symphony Hour (1942).
Muse left Disney during the 1941 strike there and joined Metro Goldwyn Mayer's animation department in 1941, along with fellow animators Ray Patterson, Preston Blair, Ed Love, Walter Clinton, and Grant Simmons. After MGM closed their animation studio in 1957, Muse worked for Hanna-Barbara where he worked on shows, like The Flintstones, Top Cat, The Huckleberry Hound Show, The Yogi Bear Show, The Jetsons, Wacky Races, Hong Kong Phooey, and Jabberjaw.
He died on his 77th birthday.
