On this particular episode we take a look at the growth and success of the Hyperion Studio in Los Feliz, CA. At this particular studio, Disney created Mickey Mouse, The Silly Symphony shorts and created Snow White.

Many firsts came at the Hyperion studio, including

  • The first sound cartoon
  • The first color short
  • The first full length animated studio

The studio grew from a small 1,600 square foot building that employed under 15 people to a thriving, almost bursting studio with over a thousand employees.

The studio served Disney until 1940 when Disney moved to Burbank.
