Walt Disney

At first Disney wanted to pursue being a newspaper artist. So his brother Roy got him a job at the Pesmen-Rubin Art Studio, where he met Ub Iwerks. Later, he decided to start his own animation buisness. He first recruited Fred Harman as his first employee. Walt then made a deal with Kansas City Theater to screen their cartoon, which they appropriately named, Laugh-O-Gram.They were such a hit that he eventually received his own studio. He created one last series of seven minute fairy tales, named Alice in Cartoonland, before he declared bankruptcy.

Years later, Disney discovered that Winkler and her husband stole Oswald, and many of the Disney's animators. Right away Disney and Iwerks created three silent cartoons featuring the never before seen Mickey Mouse. With little to no success, they tried making a voiced cartoon. With Walt as the voice of Mickey, the cartoon was an instant sensation. With such a successful brand brewing, Disney revolutionized.-Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, the first full-length animated film-Pinocchio, Fantasia, Dumbo and Bambi.-Alice in Wonderland (1951), Peter Pan (1953), a live-action film called Treasure Island (1950), Lady and the Tramp (1955), Sleeping Beauty (1959) and 101 Dalmatians (1961)
