Disney: Indiscriminating Life




It is interesting to see how early Disney’s typical givingness,
his spreading of indiscriminating life, reverts to. When in grade school, Disney was
reprimanded for putting faces and arms on the flowers he drew inside a
vase, when the assignment consisted of just flowers inside the vase. He
reveals to his daughter, Diane Disney Miller (Th e Story of Walt Disney-
Miller) that, when a young man, working for the Kansas City Film Ad
company, he made a commercial emphasizing a telephone number by
having it march on the screen on little legs.

what a cool story. Goes to show how uniquely imaginative Walt was.
