Welcome to this week’s Tiggerific Tuesday Trivia post! As usual, we are joined by my great friends Jodi from Magical Mouse Schoolhouse, Jenn from Disney Babies Blog, and Heidi from Heidi’s Head! I’m Mike from My Dreams of Disney, and for this week, we are taking a look at the Academy Awards as they pertain to Walt Disney. This information is from the book Disney Trivia from the Vault, by Dave Smith. This book is a must have in any collector’s library, if you are interested in buying it, click on the link!
Did You Know…that Walt Disney won his first Academy Award on November 18, 1932 — and that he won two that night?!
He won for the Best Cartoon category for the work Flowers and Trees. 1932 was the first year that this category was awarded! Also, Walt won a special Oscar that was given for the creation of Mickey Mouse! November 18, 1932 was the four year anniversary of Mickey’s debut in Steamboat Willie at the Colony Theater in New York.
As a special treat, here are both videos courtesy of YouTube for your enjoyment!
Thank you for stopping by today! Make sure you check out the rest of the entries for this week, and have a great day!
Leave it to Walt!
Excellent! I’ve only seen clips of Flowers and Trees. Will have to show this to the kids when they get up tomorrow! Thanks for hosting!
