HOW DISNEY HATED WOMEN

Walt Disney joked that he prefers Mickey Mouse to all women in the world. Animator Ward Kimball, who invented the cricket Jimini from Pinocchio and the cat Lucifer from Cinderella, jokingly declared: “Disney did not believe women and cats.” After several losses at the Oscars, Disney stopped taking his wife Lilian to the ceremony because he was sure that she, like any woman, could jinx him. He forbade his daughters to watch their cartoons, fearing that they would not laugh out loud enough.

The specific attitude towards women was manifested not only at home, but also at the studio: Disney officially forbade the employment of female animators, because he was afraid that at the crucial moment they might become pregnant and quit, putting the entire project at risk.

HOW DISNEY KILLED AN OWL AND BUILT AT THIS CAREER

Walt Disney was obsessed with death. So, at least, his biographers often say, linking the numerous – and tragic – deaths of animals in Disney films to a traumatic episode from the childhood of Disney himself. In the late 1900s, when Walt was either seven or eight years old, he killed an owl. Suffering in the wilderness of Missouri from the loneliness and beatings of his father, Walt dreamed of a pet, and the dream almost came true when one day in the dark thickets of the garden he discovered a half-sleeping owl and dragged her home. Crazy from daylight, the bird suddenly attacked Walt, and he, either frightened or angry, trampled the owl to death. The event was a turning point in Walt’s life: “It seems that after that owl, tenderness for animals arose in me.” Tenderness, which was subsequently monetized. Continue reading
