Originally Aired on the Disney Channel October 1985 (#17 in The Series of 20 Disney Family Albums)

One of Walt’s Nine Old Men, Marc was revered for his knowledge and understanding of visual aesthetics. He was responsible for many classic Disney characters including: Snow White, Bambi, Brer Rabbit, Fox and Bear, Mr. Toad, Cinderella, Alice, Tinkerbell and Cruella de Vil. After 101 Dalmatians in 1961, Marc Davis was recruited by Walt to become one of the original members of WED Enterprise, as one of the original Imagineers. Marc was heavily involved in the development of all the 1964-65 World’s Fair attractions: From the dinosaurs in Ford’s Magic Skyway, to the family in Carousel of Progress, children of the world in Small World, and creating the “illusion” that Abraham Lincoln could stand up. After the World’s Fair, Marc followed the attractions back to Disneyland where he noted that none of the existing attractions included humor. He worked on the “re-do” of the Jungle Cruise that included the introduction of humor. Marc went on to heavily influence Tiki Room, The Country Bears, Haunted Mansion, Pirates of the Caribbean, It’s a Small World and The Carousal of Progress. Marc became the go to Imagineer of the late 1960’s and 70’s. Marc retired in 1978 and received the Disney Legend Award in 1989.
