Most of us have watched and loved a Disney movie or a Disney cartoon, and it doesn't matter whether we are children or adults. Born in the year 1901, Walt Disney introduced us to the world of cartoons, animation, and fairy tales.
Besides winning 22 Academy Awards during his lifetime and giving us lovable characters such as Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck, he was also the founder of Disneyland and Walt Disney World theme parks.
People who met Walt Disney described him as a warm and outgoing person. But only people who knew him closely knew that he was an insecure and shy man.
Some people accused him of being racist or anti-Semitic, whereas others consider him to be a representative of American imperialism. But the fact is that Walt Disney will probably remain an international cultural icon for years to come and will be remembered as the founder of the world's largest entertainment company.
