American Experience: Walt Disney
(Parts 1 & 2)





I actually heard about this episode literally 5 hours before it aired on Monday, with Part 2 airing last night. I'm glad that I got a news feed about this PBS documentary on the man that I credit as the main reason why I got into art. He was the first celebrity I ever idolized back when I was 5 or 6 years old and watching the doc brought back a lot of memories. But this is a much deeper look into the mindset of Walt Disney.  It's not all fun and games. Far from it. It really shows the dark side and the obsession he manifested about any and everything he created. This two night even, clocking in at 4 hours is an absolute must-watch for anyone that is a fan of his brand or a fan of modern day geniuses that come along once in a lifetime. For me, 4 hours just seems way to short. I wanted more as this was fascinating viewing. I would say about 90% of what I saw in the doc was all new to me. There were lots of vintage images and archival footage to keep you engaged. Love the doc. You can check it out right now on Roku if you have the PBS Channel app which is free. It's under the American Experience channel within the PBS app itself. Now I'm gonna go dust off some of my Walt Disney books from my home library.....
