An Empire Began In This Garage

Before The Mouse, Humble Beginnings

Walt Disney 1st studio LA

Robert Disney, Walt Disney’s uncle lived at 4406 Kingswell Avenue in Los Angeles. In the rear of the residence, this garage pictured above, housed the first studio that Walt and Roy Disney used to create their famous cartoon creations.

In the summer of 1923 Walt Disney constructed his first animation camera here and The Disney Bros. Cartoon Studio came into existence. Walt Disney and animator Ub Iwerks created Mickey Mouse five years later in 1928. Today the Disney Company is worth an estimated $141 billion.

Unbelievable Looney Tunes Cartoon From 1933

You’ll Never See This Cartoon On Saturday Morning

Decades before South Park, Warner Bros. put this cartoon out in theaters. Bosko’s Picture Show, from 1933 features this incredible scene.

Language warning here – play in front of children at your discretion:

How this cartoon was ever shown is inexplicable, unless I misheard what is being said.

This was the last Bosko cartoon that Warner Bros. /  Looney Tunes ever did. Produced by the same man who would put out some of the great Warner Bros. cartoons, Leon Schlesinger and drawn by legendary animator Friz Freleng, this is a far cry from Bugs Bunny and Porky Pig.  Here is the full cartoon for your viewing pleasure.

UPDATE 2014: Warner Bros. which still owns the copyright has pulled the full cartoon from youtube.
