History Alive is a program of first-person portrayals of historical figures by presenters who have conducted scholarly research on their character. Young Walt Disney struggled to create an animation company in Chicago, Illinois and Kansas City, Missouri before moving to Los Angeles, California in 1923. After losing the rights to some of his early animated characters, he finally struck Hollywood gold with the creation of Mickey Mouse and received Academy Awards for two short films in the late 1920s and early 1930s. His ambitions in animation were finally realized with the 1937 release of "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs," which became, in its day, the highest grossing sound film of all time.
