From the Paper:

"The year 1996 marked the 30-year anniversary of the death of Walt Disney. Nevertheless, the Disney name and the vision conceived by his company continue to permeate our culture. During his life, Walt Disney saw his creations rendered in movies, network television, books, comics, magazines, recordings, character merchandising, and his theme park Disneyland. That was only the beginning. In today's multimedia society, Disney images proliferate, as the Disney company has opened additional theme parks and entered the realms of cable television, videocassette recordings, CD-ROM, and cyberspace. (Jackson, 1996)
"Although the Walt Disney Company has made its mark in many areas, its name remains intrinsically tied to animation. Beginning with Steamboat Willie (1928), the first animated film released with synchronized sound, the Disney studio has spearheaded new animation technologies and processes. Flowers and Trees (1932), the first one ever to win an Academy Award, was the first in Technicolor."
