Animator 1: Hey son, you got the character design done for the princess’ father?

Animator 2: Yeah!! Check this: he’s short, kinda portly, with a white mustache, brown eyes, and thick eyebrows. He’s goofy but lovable, and with a bit of a temper. Good guy tho

Animator 1: Sick work brah!!1!

Fun Fact:

The majority of this scene was entirely improvised by Robin Williams.  They set a bunch of things on a table in front of him and told him to just go for it.  From IMDB:

The opening scene with the street merchant was completely unscripted. Robin Williams was brought into the sound stage and was asked to stand behind a table that had several objects on it and a bed sheet covering them all. The animators asked him to lift the sheet, and without looking take an object from the table and describe it in character. Much of the material in that recording session was not appropriate for a Disney film.
