"Yen Sid" was animated by Fred Moore.

Yen Sid is the nickname of the fictional sorcerer in The Sorcerer's Apprentice, one of the segments from Disney's Fantasia. He is an old man with a long beard and robes that extended to the floor. The nickname ("Disney" spelled backwards) was given by Disney animators, as the sorcerer in the Sorcerer's Apprentice segment of Fantasia had no onscreen name, nor does the character in the original Goethe poem "Der Zauberlehrling", the inspiration for the music piece by Paul Dukas.

In Kingdom Hearts II

Yen Sid appears in the Disney/Square Enix video game Kingdom Hearts II. He lives in the Tower near Twilight Town along with Flora, Fauna, and Merryweather from Sleeping Beauty who give Sora, the game's main protagonist, his new clothes. Yen Sid finally has a speaking role, provided by Corey Burton in English, and Takashi Inagaki in Japanese. He is a greatly revered sorcerer who instructed Mickey Mouse in the use of magic. He is almost worshipped by Donald Duck and is held in high regard by many prominent characters. He is targeted to be turned into a Heartless by Pete, but thanks to Sora's efforts the Heartless never even get near him. Yen Sid enables Sora to once more know of the existence of Organization XIII, as well as a new method to travel to worlds through routes opened by the Keyblade. He also gives the characters their Gummi ship, which they had been without since the events of the first Kingdom Hearts. He disappears afterwards and is not encountered for the rest of the game, seemingly abandoning his tower, which becomes overrun with Nobodies.
