* RagsToRiches: In addition to creating the version of ''Cinderella'' most are familiar with, the now worldly known Disney came from a poor rural background and his father was a failed businessman, so his children had to work hard to help him make ends meet. When Disney started making animated cartoons the medium wasn't exactly the best investment for a bright future. Animation was used at the time crude, primitive shorts used as filler in film theaters---they were new and exciting but hadn't achieved great quality. Disney changed that by revolutionizing the art form, and became the first billionaire in the cartooning business.

* NightmareFuelStationAttendant: While his name has become synonymous with stuff aimed at toddlers (syrupy-sweet children fare, {{Bowdlerize}}d Fairy Tales, and overly-simplistic, historically inaccurate, way-too-lighthearted treatment of grim stories, it's easy to forget that some Disney fare used NightmareFuel by the tanker truck.

* {{Expy}}: Disney/MickeyMouse was more or less based on Disney's earlier succesful character, Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, only with the rabbit ears changed into round mouse ears. As Disney's film catalogue grew on some critics complained that certain characters in his films were virtually similar in design or personality. For instance, Jiminy Cricket (''Pinocchio'') and Timothy the Mouse (''Dumbo'') fulfill the same kind of roles and even have the same height. Snow White and Cinderella, Alice (''Alice in Wonderland'') and Wendy (''Peter Pan''), and various horse characters.

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: The early Disney cartoons from the 1920s show only a few sparks of the storytelling brilliance that Walt would become famous for, and are stiff and crude even when compared to other animation studios from that time.

Mickey would later lose as he became less Charlie Chaplin and more Douglas Fairbanks.

** For the record, even Disney himself occasionally grew tired of the house style that led to the Disneyfication, since it involved watering down complex artwork or story concepts. However, his attempts to deviate from that style and create more complex and technical films such as Fantasia or Sleeping Beauty wound up being too expensive to turn a profit.
