• Walt Disney was born on December 5, 1901 in Hermosa, Illinois. He took drawing
and photography classes in McKinley High School in Chicago and took night
courses at the Art Institute of Chicago. He was also a contributing cartoonist for
the school paper as well. In 1919, he moved to Kansas City to become a
newspaper artist. His brother Roy got him a job at Pesmen-Rubin Art Studio.
Disney also worked at Kansas City Film Ad Company where he created cut-out
animation. He was going to screen a type of cartoon called Laugh-O-Grams with
Fred Harman to make a series of seven minute fairy tales called Alice in
Cartoonland however the studio got in a huge amount of debt and Disney had to
declare bankruptcy. Soon after, Walt and Roy got a huge amount of money and
relocated to California where they began the Disney Brothers’ Studio. A deal was
struck between the studio and Margaret Winkler to produce the Alice cartoons.
Disney also created a character called Oswald the Lucky Rabbit. However a few
years later Winkler stole the rights to Oswald forcing Walt to create a brand new
mascot. Mickey Mouse was the new character and he appeared in classic Disney
cartoons such as Plane Crazy, The Gallopin’ Gaucho and the famous Steamboat
Willie with Walt voicing him. This made him famous and he continued to create
short animations and animated movies which grew in popularity.
