В начале своей карьеры Уолт Дисней, человек, сочинивший Микки Мауса и Трёх Маленьких Поросят, был почти неизвестен. Сейчас последнее издание книги «Кто есть кто» называет его в числе самых известных людей в мире.
Живя в Канзасе, Уолт мечтал стать художником. Однако редакторы многих газет и журналов говорили юноше, что у него нет и крупицы таланта, и что его рисунки никуда не годятся. Столь жалким было его существование, что порой ему нечего было есть. В качестве студии он использовал гараж своего отца. И именно это помещение дало ему идею, которая сама по себе стоила миллионы долларов. Произошло это следующим образом. Из маленькой норки в самом дальнем углу деревянного гаража появилась мышка. Не обращая внимания на человека, она принялась бегать и играть. Дисней принёс ей хлебных крошек, и с течением времени мышка так подружилась
с человеком, что стала взбираться на вершину его мольберта.
Позже Дисней отправился в Голливуд, где занялся подготовкой серии мультипликационных фильмов. Тщетны, однако, были все его попытки добиться успеха. Он вновь оказался без денег и без работы. Однажды, сидя в маленькой комнате, он размышлял о своем будущем фильме. И именно в этот момент в его мозгу шевельнулось воспоминание о мышке, которая имела обыкновение забираться на его мольберт в канзасском гараже. Столь живым было его воспоминание, что он тут же стал набрасывать контуры своего друга. Так и родился Микки Маус. Та самая мышка, которой давно нет в живых, стала «прадедушкой» героев многих и многих известных во всем мире фильмов. Однажды Уолт предложил своим сотрудникам экранизировать детскую сказку о трех поросятах и о сером волке, которую в детстве не раз рассказывала ему мать. Никто не предполагал, что фильм будет иметь такой сенсационный успех. Люди распевали от океана до океана мелодию песни «Нам не страшен серый волк!».
Уолт Дисней считал, что успех приходит лишь тогда, когда человек влюблен в свою работу. Ему никогда не импонировала мысль о том, чтобы делать деньги ради денег. Источником истинного вдохновения в его жизни всегда служила работа.
