The Million Dollar Rat

The million dollar ratIts 1928, A train from New york to Los Angeles carries Walt Disney and his wife home from a meeting in which they have learned that they have lost the rights to Walt’s cartoon creation Oswald the Rabbit. The news is devastating. In effect, they are out of business. But a stray mouse on the train inspires Walt to come up with a new idea. Walt’s wants to call his cartoon creation Mortimer Mouse, but his wife prevails. Mickey Mouse it is.

With this idea, Walt and his brother Roy started in a one-car garage on the wrong side of the track in east L.A and grew the largest entertainment organization in the world.
