Walt Disney at the 1932 Academy Awards with
Stan Laurel, Hal Roach and Babe Hardy.  Disney
received two awards that night. The first for
"Flowers and Trees", the first Technicolor
cartoon, and a second for his creation Mickey
Mouse.
No Disney feature has ever won a Best Picture
Oscar, but the Academy did make a special award
to honor the technical achievement of Snow White
and the Seven Dwarfs. This was only  the second
time the Academy ever modified the Oscar design
for a single statuette.
A special Oscar statuette was awarded to Walt Disney in
1938 by Shirley Temple for 'Snow White and the Seven
Dwarfs' that shows an Oscar figure accompanied by
seven 'dwarf' Oscar figures. Upon unveiling the award
Shirley Temple exclaimed "Isn't Great Mr. Disney? Arenâ
€™t you proud of it Mr. Disney?"  Disney replied “Iâ
€™m so proud I think I’ll bust.â€�

Like many things "Disney" Walt's
signature is a highly desirable and valuable
autograph.  This also makes it a favorite of
forger's.
"I never called my work an
'art' It's part of show
business, the business of
building entertainment."
"I hope we'll never lose
sight of one thing--that it
was all started by a mouse."
"I'd rather entertain and
hope that people learn, than
teach and hope that people
are entertained."
"I don't make pictures just
to make money. I make money
to make more pictures."

A memorial service was held Jan 10th, 2010 for Roy E. Disney,
who passed away in December at the age of 79.

The service was held at the El Capitan Theatre on Hollywood
Boulevard.

During the service it was announced that the Disney Studios
animation building in Burbank will be renamed the Roy E. Disney
Animation Building. That's a wonderful tribute to a man who made
his own mark on the company founded by his uncle and father.
