Creativity: Ub Iwerks & Walt Disney

Whiling away a Sunday afternoon, I came upon an inspiring, cable show called Hand Behind the Mouse: The Ub Iwerks Story. Amazing, gifted, young men in their teens and early twenties, Ub Iwerks and Walt Disney endured the lack of familial support, industry back stabbing and little financing. We all know who Walt was, but I had never heard of Mickey Mouse’s creator, Ub Iwerks, a prolific, genius animator. If you get to see the 1999 production re Ub Iwerks do so. 

Youthful visionaries, entrepreneurial courage, Mickey’s progression of personality (Ub’s drawings/Walt’s voice); impressive, fun stuff….and censorship over too visible fluttering utters. Somethings never change. Ub Iwerks….now you know.
