Walt Disney

One of his famous characters was Mickey Mouse. Mickey was a dominant character over Oswald, a character that I will tell you about.

One of his famous quotes was "never give up on what you might of been." Another famous quote was

He was a hero because he didn`t give up on his dream of making cartoons, even though people insuted him. He had perserverance because he never gave up on his dream of making cartoons. It took about 3 years (1934 -1937) to finish it, using a total of $1.3 billion, an enourmos amount of money in the midst of the country`s Great Depression (1929-1942). But on December 21, 1937, all the doubters and disbeleivers admiditted they were wrong. The project that competitors had labeled "Disney`s Folly" was an overnight smash hit, and it changed the world of entertainment forever. Disney was born on December 5, 1901 in Chicago, Illinois where he then was raised on a farm near Marceline, Missouri. Walt Disney`s actual name was Walter Elias Disney. He had a wife whos name was Lillian Bounds Disney. He had 2 kids. He adopted Diane Disney and had a daughter that went by the name Sharon Disney. He then left his family when he died on December 15, 1966 of cardiac arrest after having to be put through lung surgery.

His first chacter was Oswald the Lucky Rabbit. He was a character in which many peolple didn`t know about. He was a big hit until Mickey Mouse came out. That was when people forgot all about him. He was then a chracter who had been worn away from the history of the world. People occasionally remebered him, but they really didn`t pay much attention to the thought. Mickey was dominant in those times. Even I didn`t know about him until I looked this up.
