Walt Disney was an eccentric man. He was a genius. He was a rebel. He was creative. He was an entertainer.

"Disney is famous for his influence in the field of entertainment during the twentieth century. As the co-founder (with his brother Roy O. Disney) of Walt Disney Productions, Disney became one of the best-known motion picture producers in the world. The corporation he co-founded, now known as The Walt Disney Company, today has annual revenues of approximately U.S.$35 billion" (source: Wikipedia).

He invented the character Mickey Mouse. He produced the Disney animated film, "Fantasia" which came with it an exciting, original movie poster. He designed the amusement park, Disneyland in California (USA).

"By the early 1960s, the Disney empire was a major success, and Walt Disney Productions had established itself as the world's leading producer of family entertainment. Walt Disney was the Head of Pageantry for the 1960 Winter Olympics" (source: Wikipedia).

Since Walt Disney's death, the USPS has dedicated stamps to him. His company continues to work diligently, operating vacation resorts and prestigious cable television networks. As of 2007, the company has an annual revenue of over U.S.$35 billion.

The Walt Disney Company may not save the Earth from an E.L.E.(extinction level event) or help invent a way to colonize the moon or Mars, but in continuing to provide reliable entertainment, we enjoy the legacy of a very unique man who loved to entertain.

God bless!
