When I was growing up I use to love taking trips to Disney World with my family and seeing all the artists at work in the shops. It was one of my favorite trips as a kid since all I wanted to do was be a cartoonist. Boy, have I changed since I was a kid, but the memories still remain. This wonderful video takes you inside the magical world of Disney cartoon making with their feature film Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.
Oh to be a kid again!
This officially made my day, and tomorrow’s as well. Long live Disney!
Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck star in 1937’s Technicolor short Mickey’s Circus. Directed by Ben Sharpsteen, the short animated film featured the voical talents of Walt Disney as Mickey, and Clarence Nash as Donald. The film also includes the debut of future Pluto supporting character Salty the Seal.
“My impression is that most parents and children have very little understanding of the Mouse as anything but a one dimensional icon. I think readers may be surprised at how feisty a character he was. The stories themselves are classic adventure stories, full of mystery and intrigue. My favorites — and I have by no means read them all — have the great, classic villains, The Phantom Blot, for example, and take place in a world of gothic menace.”
