Vic Haboush explains: “The reason I got hired [at Disney in 1952] was that there was a big article in Time magazine. It had Steve Bosustow’s picture on the cover. Steve Bosustow was the head of UPA. The title under the picture in Time was “The New Walt Disney.” He had a mustache like Walt’s. He even had Walt’s little smile on his face. When Walt saw that, he went crazy. He said, ‘We have got to get some new blood in here. We can’t allow these people to come in and try to take us out of the business.’”
