 Roy E. Disney

Year Inducted: 2008

 

If the Walt Disney Studios were to have a real-life Jiminy Cricket, it would have to have been former vice chairman Roy Edward Disney, son of Roy O. Disney and nephew of Walt Disney. Besides being its conscience, Roy has also been called the “soul of the Company;” he often looked to its past to define its future.

Roy once said, “The thing that distinguishes us from everybody else, and always has and always will, is our past. The goal is to look over our shoulder and see Snow White and Pinocchio and Dumbo standing there, saying, ‘Be this good.’ We shouldn’t be intimidated by them; they’re an arrow pointing someplace.”

 

Richard Sherman

Year Inducted: 1990

 

Robert Sherman

Year Inducted: 1990

 

Generations of moviegoers and theme park guests have been introduced to the world of Disney through the songs of the Sherman brothers. Whether they know the names behind the songs or not, you’d be hard pressed to find a person alive who hasn’t at one time or another hummed one of the Shermans’ timeless tunes; even today, they remain the quintessential lyrical voice of Walt Disney.

Richard and Robert Sherman are probably best known for their work on Mary Poppins, for which they won two Oscars®: best score, and best song for “Chim Chim Cher-ee.” Another of their songs from the film, “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious,” became a pop hit, entering the Billboard Hot 100 in August 1965. “Feed the Birds,” a lullaby, became one of Walt Disney’s all-time favorite songs.

Episode 56 - The Mouse Knows Best Podcast

February 27, 2017
00:0000:00

Episode 56 -  We continue our Disney Legends discussion this week with Elizabeth and her two legends, Kathryn Beaumont and Dame Julie Andrews, with the cast Cody, Stefania, Jared and Joe.  Also stay tuned to find out the winner of "Bob Gurr : Turning Dreams into Reality DVD" sponsored by our producer Joe over at www.DVCRADIO.com!

 kdowmanaj.jpg    DisLegends.jpgjandrewsmp.jpg

 Kathryn Beaumont

Year Inducted: 1998

 

When Walt Disney began production on the animated classic Alice in Wonderland in 1949, he sought the perfect voice to play the literary ingénue. He was looking for a voice, recalled Kathryn Beaumont, that “would be English enough to satisfy British audiences, but not so English that it would put off American audiences.” After hearing 10-year-old Kathryn’s audition, Walt chose her for the voice of Alice and, later, Wendy Darling in Peter Pan.

  

Julie Andrews

Year Inducted: 1991

 

Julie Andrews was “practically perfect in every way” as Mary Poppins. In her feature film debut, she bowled audiences over with her charm and sense of fun and, as a result, won an Oscar® for Best Actress of 1964.

As film critic Leonard Maltin wrote in his book The Disney Films, Julie captured “every nuance” of author P.L. Travers’s iconic character. Judith Crist, of the New York Herald Tribune, blurred the distinction between character and actress, writing, “Although she [Mary] pokes her pretty fingers into a world of sticky sweetness, she almost invariably pulls out a plum. All speeches and cream, with a voice like polished crystal, she seems the very image of a prim young governess who might spend her free Tuesdays skittering off to Oz.” Indeed, Julie was the very image of Mary Poppins and, to many Disney fans, she remains the magical nanny of their dreams.

floyd-norman2.jpg   DisLegends.jpgFloyd-Norman.png

Year Inducted: 2007 

Though he prefers to be called a “cartoonist,” few other artists working in animation today can boast a career as varied as that of Floyd Norman. From the 1950s to today, Floyd’s diverse career, insightful viewpoint, and unflinching honesty have truly made him a Disney Legend.

Episode 53 - We continue our Disney Legends discussion this week with Jenn and her two legends, John Hench and Thurl Ravenscroft, with the whole cast Cody, Elizabeth, Stefania, Jared and Joe.  But first enjoy a recent Disneyland Trip report from Jared! Also stay tuned to find out the winner of "From Jungle Cruise Skipper to Disney Legend - 40 Years of Magical Memories at Disney" thanks to ThemeParkPress.  www.themeparkpress.com

     1057_John-Hench-Plaza-Inn_jpg-500x0.jpgDisLegends.jpgthurl.jpg

 John Hench

Year Inducted: 1990

 

John Hench was Disney’s Renaissance artist. Imagineer, philosopher, animator, designer, storyteller, voracious reader (52 magazines a month!), and teacher, John was always quick to share the lessons he learned from his own mentor—Walt Disney.

He recalled one of those lessons: “Walt always said, ‘You get down to Disneyland at least twice a month and you walk in the front entrance, don’t walk in through the back. Eat with the people. Watch how they react to the work you’ve done down there.’ This made an enormous difference in how we approached our work.”

  

Thurl Ravescroft

Year Inducted: 1995

Although Thurl Ravenscroft’s name may not be familiar to Disney fans, his voice is. Probably best known to television audiences as the voice of Kellogg’s Tony the Tiger, a character he played from 1952 until 2005, Thurl was a favorite among Disney vocal performers. His voice has been featured in Disney theme park attractions such as the Country Bear Jamboree; on television programs, such as Zorro; and in animated films, including Lady and the Tramp. In fact, Walt Disney selected Thurl and his quartet, The Mellomen, to croon, as well as bark, whine, and howl like canines in the delightful 1955 classic.

Episode 51 - We continue our Disney Legends discussion this week with Stefania and her two legends, Dick Van Dyke and Jonny Depp, with Cody, Jenn, Jared and Joe.  But first enjoy a recent Walt Disney World Trip report from Jenn! 

     dvdpic.jpgDisLegends.jpgjohnny-depp-disney.jpg

 Dick Van Dyke

Year Inducted: 1998

 

One of Hollywood’s most beloved stars is Dick Van Dyke, whom Disney fans best remember as Bert, the chimney sweep, in the Academy Award®-winning feature Mary Poppins. Many would agree with former Disney vice chairman Roy E. Disney, who once said, “Every time I see Mary Poppins, I’m amazed at how Dick’s brilliant performance effortlessly ties this film together. After all, it is Dick who first welcomes us to number 17 Cherry Tree Lane. It is his chalk pavement picture that provides entry into one of the great fantasy sequences of all time. And, it is Dick who bids Mary Poppins goodbye at the end of the movie.”

 

Jonny Depp

Year Inducted: 2015

 

A teen heartthrob who then became one of the biggest movie stars in the world star, Johnny Depp is a rarity among actors, willing and able to mix swashbuckling leading-man performances with eccentric character roles. Perhaps best known among these parts is the internationally-beloved Captain Jack Sparrow of the Pirates of the Caribbean films.

EMH Episode 50 - The Mouse Knows Best Podcast

January 14, 2017
00:0000:00

EMH Episode 50 - On Sunday, July 17, 1955, William “Sully” Sullivan was tuned in to ABC-TV. “I watched the opening ceremonies for Disneyland. The following Saturday I went down and applied for a job. Monday I quit Northrop Aircraft, and Tuesday I reported to work as a ticket-taker at the Jungle Cruise.” Sully was 19 years old.  Tonight we contunue or Disney Legends with a visit with William “Sully” Sullivan.  Our host Cody along with Jenn, Stefania, Jared and Joe visit with Sully and discuss his legendary life with the Disney company.

   sullivan-william-240x240.jpgDisLegends.jpgsully.jpg

Four Decades with Disney

Young "Sully" Sullivan needed a job, and so in 1955 he applied for one at the brand-new theme park, Disneyland, where he was hired on the spot as a ticket-taker for the Jungle Cruise. Soon he was promoted to skipper, and then he met his future wife at Waltah Clarke's Hawaiian Shop across from the Jungle Cruise, and then he was assigned to projects ranging from the 1964 New York World's Fair and Epcot to Disneyland Paris, and then it was forty years later, and Sully was retiring as vice-president of Magic Kingdom in Orlando.

In his humorous, no-holds-barred style, Sully takes you on a whirlwind ride through his life, with stories coming at you faster than skipper jokes on the Jungle Cruise, including:

  • Laugh-out-loud tales about dozens of Disney notables before they became notable
  • How Sully met the challenge of keeping Disney's attractions running smoothly at the 1964 New York World's Fair
  • Sully's integral role in the opening of three new parks: Magic Kingdom, Epcot, and Disneyland Paris
  • A happy ending to a fairy tale career, with a window on Main Street and recognition as a Disney Legend

Sully's never-before-told stories provide a unique, often irreverent glimpse into the history and culture of Disney theme parks.

Special thanks to THEME PARK PRESS - http://www.themeparkpress.com for allowing us to give away a copy of Sully's awsome book! "From Jungle Cruise Skipper to Disney Legend - 40 Years of Magical Memories at Disney"  Listen to the end of the podcast for info on how to enter and win your copy!
