Brimming with colorful art and nostalgia, this comprehensive year-by-year celebration of the birth, development, success of Walt Disney and The Walt Company offers a guided tour through twentieth century pop culture.

Beginning with the birth of its founder in 1901, Disney: The First 100 Years details the genesis of Mickey, Donald, and the rest of the gang; the development of the first animated features; the onset of television; the creation of Walt Disney World; and the company's recent standing as one of the most technically innovative and synergistic corporations in the world. Chronicled here are the trials and tribulations faced by the Disney brothers, their ultimate triumphs, and the many people who contributed to their successes. An abundance of classic art, much of it never seen before, illustrates every milestone in spectacular color. As authoritative as it is beautiful, Disney: The First 100 Years is an essential addition to any fan's library and a glorious way to usher in a new, Disney-filled century.
