Disney Cartoon Harem Scarem

Disney Cartoon Harem Scarem - Before Mickey Mouse made his seminal appearance in "Steamboat Willie," there was Oswald the Lucky Rabbit in "Harem Scarem."

As part of Disney's D23 fan celebration event, the Disney fan club and the Walt Disney archives has compiled the oldest known cartoon from the company's eponymous creator and has shared the video exclusively with Yahoo News. walt disney biography, disney hungry hobos auction,

"This is a prime example of the kind of thing that we're digging out of the vaults, going the extra mile to show the fans something new and unique," Disney archives director Becky Cline told Yahoo News. disney cartoon harem scarem,

"There's no new Walt Disney history to share unless we dig it out and discover it."

Walt Disney worked as an animator for Universal for several years before launching his own Disney empire. And one of the major successes he helped create for Universal was the character Oswald the Lucky Rabbit.

In total, 26 Oswald the Lucky Rabbit cartoons were produced for Universal in the 1920s and '30s with Disney and Ub Iwerks, who was Walt Disney's long-time collaborator. In fact, it was Universal's first-ever cartoon series. Though Oswald has his own unique characteristics, it's clear to any observant fan that he provided much of the basis for what would become Mickey Mouse, arguably the most iconic animated figure in history.

However, things began to sour between Disney and producer Charles Mintz when the Winkler Productions head wanted to lower production costs and cash in on the character's popularity.

"Walt was so creative and always trying to push the envelope. Not to compensate himself but to make the character better and to make the animation better," Cline said.

"Walt didn't understand that the contract he had signed gave Mintz ownership of the character. He was absolutely devastated. He wanted to do things his way."

After getting out of his contract with Universal, Disney embarked on a long, lonely train ride back home to California.

"On the way back on the train back to Hollywood, Walt was sending telegrams to his brother and came up with the idea of Mickey Mouse," Cline said. "He had a mouse he used to feed on his art board back in Kansas City. Mickey was kind of born in secret."

"It was a hard break for Walt. He truly was devastated," Cline said. "Walt was only 27-years-old when he lost the character."
