"There are certainly many influential and colorful American characters that have had a great impact on American society and culture, but one of the biggest names is Walt Disney. His name is legendary around the world, millions of people throng to his theme parks every year, and even more spend time viewing a classic or brand-new Disney film. Walt Disney is a legend in the entertainment industry, and his films still have a dramatic impact on society today.
"Walt Disney began his film career shortly after he got out of the Army after World War I. He worked as a cartoonist for companies in Kansas City, Missouri, where he met Ub Iwersk, who became his animation partner. Walt moved to Los Angeles in the early 1920s, where he set up an animation studio with his brother Walt. They created short animated cartoons, until 1937, when they put together their first feature film, Snow White and the Seven Dwarves."
