*Mickey Mouse made his screen debut in Steamboat Willie, the world's first synchronized sound cartoon, in New York on November 18, 1928.*In 1932, the production entitled Flowers and Trees(the first color cartoon) won Walt the first of his studio's Academy Awards*On December 21, 1937, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, the first full-length animated musical feature, premiered in Los Angeles. --The film produced at the unheard cost of $1,499,000 during the depths of the Depression, the film is still considered one of the greats.


In 1955 Walt Disney's dream of a clean. organized amusement park came true., it is known as disneyland. Then in 1966 he had died before the construction for Walt Disney began. Walt Disney was then constructed and finished because of his brother, the amusement park was for Walt Disney's memory.

Walt Disney


**Walt disney was born on December 5th, 1901 in Chicago Illinios.** His family then moved to Missouri where he spent most of his childhood. He was one five children, four boys and one girl. **When he was seven he took interest into art, he would draw sketches and sell them to neighbors for money.* *Then in 1918 Walt tried to enlist in the army where he was turned down because of his age. He then became an amublance driver for red cross and decorated his ambulance in Disney cartoons.**When he returned from France he persued a career in commercial arts. He started a small company called Laugh-O-Grams, which eventually fell bankrupt. **With his suitcase, and twenty dollars, Walt headed to Hollywood to start new. **The early flop of his Alice comedies left him lost and confused. His brother lived in California where he went. His brother gave him 250 dollars and they borrowed 500 and then set up a shop in their uncles garage. They then received an offer from New York for the alice comedies and that's when it all started.


1. Enthusiasm- Walt's enthusiasm empowered all of the work he did. It is said to be the reason all of his employee's stayed working for him. Disney film editor Norman Palmer says: "Walt’s enthusiasm made over-achievers out of all of us"2. Imagination- He had a very strong, vivid, and active imagination. It was one after the other, he always was creating new things. Before disneyland was finished he had Walt Disney imagined. 3. Optomism.- When his alice comedies failed he never thought any less of his work and he just kept creating cartoons and ideas. 4. Creative, from the time he was young until he died he always had a new cartoon and a new idea on how to show the cartoon off. Everything he did, he did by himself.


In my eyes, walt disney is one of the best entreprerneurs. He beleived in team work and also got the job done. When his first comedies were pushed away he just packed up and moved on to try something different, also after his job went bankrupt. He always beleived in his work and now we see his name on of the preveiews of almost every movie we watch. He will be forever known.
