Walt Disney

Walt Disney was a cartoonist and an animator. He created many movies and multiple T.V. shows. He also made a television channel for kids to enjoy. Walt Disney was born on December 5, 1901 in Chicago, Illinois. In 1918 he wanted to enlist in the military, but he was too young so he faked his age and made himself seem older. Once he finished his service in the military, Walt Disney started his career as a cartoonist and animator. On July 13, 1925 he got married, to one of his employees named Lillian Bounds.

Walt Disney’s first cartoon made was called “Oswald the Lucky Rabbit” and then they changed him later on to Mickey Mouse. Walt Disney’s first cartoon with sound was called “Steamboat Willie.” Walt Disney created Oswald the Lucky Rabbit before he worked for the Disney Company.

The co-founder of the Walt Disney company is his older brother Roy O. Disney. Walt Disney’s most famous character is Mickey Mouse, who is in many cartoons including comedy shows, and movies. They usually have Mickey go through adventures with his friends Pluto, Goofy, and Donald Duck, and he often falls in love with another mouse named Minnie Mouse.

Walt Disney had 2 children: a daughter named Diane Miller, and another daughter named Sharon Disney, who is the youngest of the 2. Both of his children have passed away: Sharon passed in 1993, and Diane passed in 2013. Diane published books about her father.

Walt Disney died on December 15, 1966, so the Disney Company took over his work and created what the Walt Disney Channel has become today. There are more sounds and real people, but not as many cartoons. They also created Disney World, so they pretty much took Walt Disney’s place when he passed.
