Walt Disney is one of the most iconic entertainment figures of the 20th century, but his career got off to a rocky start. At age 22, Disney was fired from his first job as a newspaper cartoonist because, according to his editor, he “lacked imagination and had no good ideas.” Needless to say, Disney didn’t let that stop him. Just a few years after being fired and declaring bankruptcy for the first iteration of his own animation company, he went on to create Walt Disney Animation Studios, a wildly successful venture that would birth a trove of instantly classic films, a global theme park empire, and a galaxy of world-famous animated characters, including Mickey Mouse. With hard work and perseverance, Disney made what others saw as impossible into a reality. As his story shows, the journey to do “the impossible” can yield something magical, and can be surprisingly fun along the way.
