Behind the Disney Magic

Quick quote:
Valenti told the crowd that an investor who bought $10,000 of Disney stock when Eisner took the helm in 1984 would be sitting on more than $220,000 today. [...] The trouble is, few investors hold on to their shares for that long. And though the long-term return has been stellar, it masks the much weaker performance of the stock over the last five years... Roy Disney quipped that shareholders would have been better off putting their money in a savings account over the last seven years.

Disney Tells Animators It Ain't Over Yet!


Well is wasn’t exactly Santa Claus who attended the Animation Guild’s holiday open house party on Dec. 12, 2003 but it was just about as anticipated and welcome amongst animators when Roy E. Disney strode into the banquet room at Pickwick Gardens in Burbank, California. The huge crowd rose to its feet and parted like the Red Sea for Moses... Disney reminded animators to be true to their art and their passion, saluted them for their dedication and thanked everyone present for helping him revive Disney animation. He concluded with the salvo, “It ain’t over yet!” to which he received a thunderous ovation.

Full details.

I wanted to drop a quick note before I head off to work. I wanted to say I hope I didn't accidentally annoy or upset Rich or Carol or anyone else when I had made my statement last week about being peeved over Michael Eisner's possibly erasing Roy Disney's name from the upcoming dvd sets. I realised later after writing it I was probably coming across as sounding too sharp in my comments on the situation. I apologise to everyone if my wording was uncalled for. :blush2:

No, not at all, Chris. Don't worry.

I had the same initial reaction when I heard about it -- then when I dug a little deeper I found out about the legal issues involved to using Roy's name now that he's just a stockholder and not employed by The Walt Disney Company.

I still can't get over that this is the first time in the history of the company that no Disney family member is at Disney at all. It would be different if they had all died, but certainly this is not the case so I still find it shocking that Eisner pushed Roy off the board.
