Working With Walt Disney (Video)

By Keith Mahne

Walt Disney spent his life creating entertainment for children the world over. But some lucky kids actually got to work along side him at his Burbank studio and in Working With Walt Disney they share special memories of a man most of us only knew from afar....

Walt Disney pictured with the original Mouseketeers. The Mickey Mouse Club was first televised from 1955-59, featuring a cast of children and teenagers.

Featured on the Walt Disney Treasures DVD Your Host Walt Disney, this featurette sits down some of the stars of past Disney productions to talk about how wonderful it was to work for Walt. Former Mouseketeers, Tommy Kirk, and "Babes in Toyland" star Tommy Sands take the time to share some anecdotes on Walt the Myth vs. Walt the Man. We learn he was a friendly fellow, but distant at times, and wielded his celebrity like a fine-tuned instrument. Enjoy the show...
