Appraisal of Impact

From the Paper:

"Disney's initial success with Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937) was a successful venture into the cartoon picture business as it is defined today. The use of color, realistic motion of characters, story line and sound all contributed to the foundation of future animation pictures throughout the twentieth century. Building on this success, Disney produced Pinocchio in 1940 "whose intricate levels of technical brilliance many animators feel has never been surpassed" (Tracy, 2001, p.1). The continued development of animation techniques by the Disney studios helped to create movies with a mixture of live acting and animation as seen in the movie Mary Poppins (1964). "
