~ Bartok leaving Rasputin out of fear - his redemption.
Bartok is the secondary antagonist in Don Bluth's 9th animated feature film Anastasia. He is an albino white bat who is Rasputin's former minion. He was also the titular main protagonist in his own movie Bartok the Magnificent
He was voiced by Hank Azaria, who also played Gargamel in the live action movies of The Smurfs, Carlos in Hop and Kahmunrah in Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian.
At first, Bartok was ruthless, arrogant, stubborn, bitter, impatient, greedy, clumsy, cocky, cowardly, selfish, lazy, ignorant and mean and he was willing to help Rasputin kill Anastasia. Despite his mostly harmless nature, he does show that he can be pretty evil in his own right such as when he told Rasputin that Anastasia was fleeing, so he could kill her. He did this despite knowing she was a child at the time.
At the end of the first film of Anastasia, Bartok reformed and met a female bat who became his girlfriend and she starts to kiss Bartok.
During the events of Bartok the Magnificent, Bartok starts to become calm, funny, friendly, still cowardly, hilarious, still clumsy, kind-hearted, sweet-tempered, happy-go-lucky and nice.
Since Bartok reformed, it is unknown if he betrayed his boss or not.
Although his species is hard to identify due to his albinism, it could be possible that Bartok is a pallid bat, because of him having large ears and a pig-like nose.
Bartok is among several animated bats who serve as the right-hand man of the main antagonist, alongside Fidget from The Great Mouse Detective and Pimm from Barbie in the Nutcracker.
Bartok is Don Bluth's favorite character in Anastasia.
Woody Allen, Danny DeVito and the late Rodney Dangerfield were all considered for the role of Bartok.
