Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes Pic!
Now this isn’t exactly a behind the scenes look at a specific movie, but it is one of our most iconic entertainers with his most iconic character, Walt Disney sketching Mickey Mouse from Steamboat Willie.
Now I’m insanely jealous of the person in this world who owns that sketch, but find the image to be one of particular happiness. I have a lot of fond memories of watching him host The Magical World of Disney when they reran on the Disney channel and like any child of the last 80-ish years I grew up with the fruits of his labor and the works inspired by him.
Disney strikes me as a real life Willy Wonka and after having spent the day at Disneyland (my first time in over a decade) the imagination on display is still mind-blowing. The Haunted Mansion ride is perhaps the best thing man has ever created. Sorry, fire. Sorry, wheel.
So here’s Uncle Walt and Mickey! Enjoy!

I have no idea what tomorrow’s behind the scenes pic will be, but I’m sure it’ll be something cool.
