Sir Ector (Also known as Lord Ector or just Ector for short) is a supporting anti hero in The Sword in the Stone. As the lord of his castle, he is Arthur Pendragon's foster father and Sir Kay's father.
Why He's a Comedic Knight
Despite being strict and harsh with Arthur, Ector does care for Arthur, as proven when he scolds Sir Kay for letting Arthur going to the woods alone.
He, alongside Merlin and Archimedes, is considered to be one of the comic reliefs in The Sword in the Stone.
He is known for many famous quotes like "Gadzooks!", "Educated owl?",
He is a good friend to Sir Pellinore.
His scene in the kitchen is arguably one of the funniest slapstick moments in any Disney history.
Sebastian Cabot does a spectacular job as Ector by making him a strict ,yet bumbling and funny, fellow.
Him reinstating Arthur as squire is pretty good.
Him apologizing to Arthur is quite good, which goes to show that he is known to apologize.
Even when he's a jolly character, he still has still several moments where he can be quite unlikable, especially when he is judgmental of Merlin and acted very strict and rude towards Arthur, though not as evil as Madam Mim. Thankfully, he redeemed himself at the end.
He never had any recurring appearances in other Disney media, even though his son, Sir Kay did appear in The House of Mouse.
