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.

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
