The creator of Mickey Mouse and benefactor of the California Institute of the Arts, Disneyland and Walt Disney World, Walt Disney began his career as an advertising cartoonist. In 1920, he created and marketed his first original animated cartoons and later perfected a method for combining live action with animation.
Mickey Mouse was created in 1928 and made his screen debut in Steamboat Willie, the world's first fully synchronized sound cartoon. In 1932, the film Flowers and Trees won Walt Disney the first of his 32 personal Academy Awards. In 1937, he released Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, the first full length animated musical feature produced during the Depression at the then exorbitant cost of $1,488,000.
