Vault Disney: Happy 90th Anniversary Walt Disney Company

It was 90 years ago today back in 1923 that Walt and Roy Disney start the Disney Brothers Cartoon Studio which would later morph into the Walt Disney Company. The Disney brothers had signed a contract with M. J. Winkler (a New York cartoon distributor)to produce animated shorts called "Alice Comedies."

In 1986, the name was officially changed to the Walt Disney Company. Steve Jobs was a shareholder and board member. Walt Disney Studios is one of the largest in Hollywood with networks ESPN, ABC, Marvel, Lucasfilm and more.
