Profile of Walt Disney
Despite persistent public rumor, Walt Disney was not cryogenically frozen or buried under Disneyland after his death; he was cremated and buried at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale, California… Michael Eisner was hired in 1984 to run the Disney empire and is often credited with the company’s resurgence; Eisner stepped down from the job in 2005… Other animated features include Winnie the Pooh, Ariel the mermaid, Pinocchio the wooden boy, and Princess Jasmine… Both Ub Iwerks and Walt Disney had a hand in creating Mickey Mouse. The story goes that Iwerks did all the animation of the first Mickey, with the character’s personality created by Walt. Walt did the original voice. Which one actually drew the first Mickey (as we would recognize him) is unclear, so, naturally, some people think it was Disney and some people think it was Iwerks.
