Good morning! This day in Disney history, November 17th: The first of eight installments titled "My Dad, Walt Disney," by Diane Disney Miller are published in the Saturday Evening Post.  In addition,  “The Little Mermaid” is generally released.

1956: "My Dad Walt Disney" (Vol. 229 Issue 20) as told to Pete Martin (the veteran writer and associate editor at the Saturday Evening Post). These articles were inserts from the later release of Walt’s first full-length biography: "The Story of Walt Disney", by Pete Martin (1901-1980).
Martin had first approached Walt with the proposal to interview him and have him write (with the assistance of Martin) his biography in serial form back in 1950.  Inserts from these interviews first appeared in the “My Dad, Walt Disney” Saturday Evening posts and ran weekly through all four issues. Starting in November, through December, with an eighth and final installment on January 5, 1957.


covers

The first issue in the series featured a cover design (above, left) by the Swedish-born painter-illustrator Gustaf Tenggren (1896-1970). The original painting (above, center) is now in the collections of the Walt Disney Family Museum in San Francisco.

Martin offered Walt $150,000. At the time, Walt was deeply involved in building Disneyland but wanted to help his daughter Diane and her husband Ron get a house. Walt had no money to give them because everything was tied up in his new theme park. So Walt made a counter-proposal that he would be interviewed but that Diane would be credited as the author so that she would receive the money." When it was published, The Story of Walt Disney was indeed credited to Diane Disney Miller, “as told to Pete Martin.” However, in a prefatory note to a 2005 Disney Editions reprint of the text, Diane unequivocally stated that it had been “wholly written by Mr. Martin, based on hours of taped interviews with my dad, Walt Disney.” 

Below is a link to a website that has the whole first issue posted, complete with the vintage advertisements! Very interesting! I would have posted here but you wouldn’t have been able to read the interview. This way you can click on the photos and actually SEE the words. "My Dad, Walt Disney" Vol 229 Issue 20


I did however want to include this one, the text on the top says: “In front of Sleeping Beauty’s Castle, at Disneyland, Walt enthralls his grandson, Chris, just as he has enthralled untold millions of children all over the world.”

Okay and ONE of the awesome advertisements, sorry, I had to! Just what every wife wants for Christmas right?!

Also on this day in 1989 - "The Little Mermaid" is generally released in theaters. Loosely based upon the Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale. This film marked the first use of CAPS in a Disney feature, seen in the movie's final scene. CAPS is a digital ink-and-paint and animation production system that colors the animators' drawings digitally, as opposed to the traditional animation method of tracing ink and paint onto cels. All subsequent 2D animated Disney features have used CAPS instead of ink-and-paint, with Home on the Range as the last one.

To watch the Disney Channels making of the Little Mermaid, hosted by Alyssa Milano from 1989:

Part 2:


Part 3:


According to Box Office Mojo, The Little Mermaid has a lifetime gross of $111,543,479.  On opening weekend it made, $6,031,914, was ranked number number 3, shown in 994 theaters, and making $6,068 average per theater which works out to be 7.2% of the Total Gross, WOW!


What's your favorite part from The Little Mermaid?

Thank you all for reading and watching! Hope you have a magical Monday!
