Walt Disney Studios Studio Logo

Walt Disney- and many other animation pioneers such as Isadoore Freleng, Carl Stalling and Ub Iwerks- learned their skills making commercial cartoons and a handful of Laugh-O-gram shorts in Kansas City. But KC was not where an creative talent wanted to be, and by 1924, Walt, his wife Lillan and his older brother Roy headed west to Hollywood to make their fortunes. The brothers founded Disney Brothers Cartoon Studio in the San Fernando Valley that same year. Working for M. J. Winkler Productions, the pair (and friends who followed them out from Missouri) began work on ther Alice Comedies series.

Walt Disney Studios is based in Burbank, California.
