When you wish upon a star, makes no difference who you are. Today is the great late Walt Disney’s birthday and people across the social web are paying homage. The entertainment icon passed away from cancer on December 16, 1966. He would be 110 years old today.
Before bringing Mickey Mouse and countless other famous characters into the world, Disney was a newspaper artist, who drew political cartoons and comic strips. He also worked at his brother’s bank making advertisements. It was in the late 1920s when he created Mickey, originally name Mortimer. By 1930, Disney’s mouse was the most famous cartoon in the world, and many would say he still is today.
