Oswald the Lucky Rabbit

Heyya , 

 i just had to share this video with you guys . I love animation and seeing videos like this one amaze me how far animation has developed from the earlier beginnings . 
when searching on IMDB about the pixar film up for media course work , i found this interesting piece of trivia , which lead me to this video. Apparently The villain Charles Muntz is named after Charles Mintz, the Universal Pictures executive who in 1928 stole Walt Disney's production rights to his highly-successful "Oswald the Lucky Rabbit" cartoon series. This led Walt Disney to create Mickey Mouse, who soon eclipsed Oswald in popularity.
Mickey and Oswald

Trolley Troubles - Oswald the Lucky Rabbit

 Walt Disney drew cartoons of Oswald the Lucky Rabbit for Universal Pictures and Charles Mintz. This was the first of these films which was released to theatres.Obviously it was originally with out sound , but that was added several years later .

Enjoy  xx
