The company "Disney" Was actually created with a very weird twist. Walt was on his way to New York with a drawing of what is know today as Roger Rabbit. When Walt arrived in New York, the people at the company he was showing his drawing to had already chose a rabbit idea and sent Walt back home. On the ride home he took his drawing and changed up the ears and face a little into the character we all know today as Mickey Mouse. He then took the mouse and started his own cartoon drawing which then made it into his own show. Disney later worked with studios to bring all his characters to life on the tv. The Steam Boat sketch cartoon being his first ever.
