Walt Disney has brought the world some of the biggest cartoon films. He created Mickey Mouse and the world of Disneyland. Along with his brother, Walt Disney founded Walt Disney Productions, one of the leading motion-picture production companies. Throughout his life, he has won 22 Academy Awards.
Walt Disney’s passion for the arts developed in High School as he took drawing and photography classes that helped mold his cartoonist skills. In addition, he took night courses at the Chicago Art Institute to further improve his drawing abilities. In 1919, he met the cartoonist Ub Iwerks before making commercials from cutout animation at the Kansas City Film Ad Company. He then decided to open his own animation business with experience in hand-drawn cel animation and camera work. With his first employee Fred Harman, Walt Disney brought their cartoons, known as Laugh-O-Grams, to life at the local Kansas City theater. He further opened his own studio under the name Laugh-O-Grams, which featured seven-minute fairy tales called Alice in Cartoonland. After financial issues, Walt and his brother moved to California where they began the Disney Brothers’ Studio and developed the cartoon character Oswald the Lucky Rabbit and many Alice cartoons. One of the most well-known characters of today, Mickey Mouse was developed and voiced by Walt Disney, an immediate worldwide sensation. In 1929, he added to Mickey Mouse with the creation of Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, Goofy, and Pluto. His first Oscar, Flowers and Trees was one of his most popular cartoons that were developed in color. The first full-animated film came in 1937 with Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, which won eight Oscars. On July 17, 1955, Disney opened the Disneyland theme park that would soon become one of the most popular destinations in the world. At Disneyland, families, and children would be able to experience the world of Disney characters and cartoons through fun activities and rides. Walt Disney Studios went on to produce hits such as Pinocchio, Fantasia, Dumbo, Bambi, and the classic Cinderella; they produced over 100 features including Treasure Island, Alice in Wonderland, 101 Dalmatians, and Sleeping Beauty. In 1994, Walt Disney merged live action and animation together in his production of the motion film Mary Poppins. Walt Disney, unfortunately, lost his life to lung cancer in 1966.
