Early life
He loved to draw even if his father strongly disagreed. He used to draw his neighbor's horse and animals around him and it was remarkable. While he was working as a newspaper deliverer, he had a dream of being an artist as he read the cartoons in the newspapers. Eventually, his father allowed him to learn arts and he took night courses of arts and later became a cartoonist for the school newspaper. He drew many political cartoons about WW1 with a dream to join the army. Finally he dropped out of school to join the army.

Early life
He wasn't of age to be able to join the army but he faked it and got in. He was signed in French. He worked as an ambulance driver and worked at the army store. While he was working at the army store he didn't stop drawing and was able to earn some money by selling his drawings on lost country's army helmets, which were the Germans army helmets.

for studying. Finally, Walt joined his company again with the first employee, Fred Harman, who was working at the Ad Company. They started creating a series of cartoons called
and it became famous in Kansas City.
Walt and Harman were still struggling with the financial problem, so they set for Hollywood as a new starting point with a new series, Alice Comedies, which they made when they were in the Ad Company. This comedy needed a distributor and was rejected by many studios, but New York distributor, Margaret Winkler, saw the potential of the animation and signed on to contribute. Walt directed the comedies himself and Roy was the cameraman and photographer. Roy had done the work and when the comedies succeeded, they founded the
Disney Brothers Studio
with the money they earned in 1923.
Start of Animation Career
Mickey Mouse
In 1926, There was a character called Oswald the Lucky Rabbit which made an instant success, but the staff of the company were under the control by the producer except for Iwerks who created the main character, Oswald. Moreover, Oswald was owned by the producer. Therefore, they created a new character that replaced him, Mickey Mouse.
Mickey Mouse
Mickey Mouse was based on a mouse who grew up as a pet while he was in the Laugh-O-Gram studio in Kansas City. Iwerks reworked on the character to make it easier to conduct for animation. That's why Oswald and Mickey Mouse look similar. The name Mickey Mouse was named by Walt's wife and Walt was Mickey's voice. Mickey Mouse was the first character who had a personality that was loved by many people. Then the studio was extended with a name of the Walt Disney Company and Mickey Mouse becomes a logo of it.
Colour Animation
Walter wanted to make more livable animations than the past animations he had done, so he studied colour print. In that period, colour print quality was bad so couldn't use it. Therefore, in 1932, Walt made it succeed for the first time with a technique, Multiplane Camera. Walt got awarded for 8 years in a row because of this technique.
