Good morning! This day in Disney history, Jan 5th, 1935. The Silly Symphony short "The Tortoise and the Hare" directed by Wilfred Jackson is released. A retelling of Aesop's fable where the hare learns that slow & steady wins the race.
It will win an Academy Award for Best Short Cartoon. To watch: http://is.gd/AZo8Ra
