** On the [[AccidentalPun comical end]], Walt unapologetically ''loved'' butt jokes, especially ones involving characters getting their butts jabbed, burned or maimed in some way. They're one of the [[http://land.allears.net/blogs/jackspence/2012/10/rump_humor_1.html most frequently used gags in his cartoons and animated features]], and many of them have at least one--this kind of humor even popped up in some of his theme park attractions.

* AnimatedAdaptation: The bulk of the 19 animated features made in his lifetime were based on pre-existing stories. The only features he made that weren't based on any pre-existing stories were Saludos Amigos and The Three Caballeros. The bulk of Make Mine Music and Melody Time consist of original story material as well, but have a couple segments based on pre-existing stories, such as Casey at the Bat, Johnny Appleseed, Little Toot and Pecos Bill. Many of the WesternAnimation/SillySymphonies were based on classic fairy tales as well.

Walter Elias Disney, America's most famous animator, has quite an interesting history. He started out as a boy who wanted to entertain people. He attempted various careers to find out how best to do that—acting, cartooning, filmmaking—until he decided to try and break into the new and expanding field of animation. Since cartoons were mainly a novelty at the time, he had little trouble absorbing all there was to be known about it, and then he began pushing the envelope. After several of his animators were recruited out from under him, and his [[WesternAnimation/OswaldTheLuckyRabbit mascot character]] stolen away, it seemed all hope was lost for this aspiring animator.

** Disney had a talent for making otherwise complex – or in some scenes not always that engaging – stories into mesmerizing tales that the general public could easily understand and enjoy. Unfortunately this has also led to some drastic AdaptationDisplacement where many classics of world literature have been altered, simplified, and sugarcoated so much that his version became the official version instead of the other way around. To this day you'll find people complaining about film or theatre adaptations of stories they only know from the Disney adaptations, because certain scenes are so different, despite being in the original book. This can be forgiven somewhat in the case of the fairy tales (The Three Little Pigs, Snow White, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty,etc.) because they were carried over by oral tradition and thus varied from storyteller to storyteller. With the literary classics it's a bit more controversial. ''Literature/{{Pinocchio}}'', ''Literature/AliceInWonderland'', ''Literature/TheSwordInTheStone'' and ''Literature/JungleBook'' are perhaps the Disney films that resemble the original source material the least. Even after Walt's death, the Disney Studio is still criticized for deviating and sugarcoating from great public domain literary works a lot.
