Robert Disney’s garage – The very first Disney animation studio in Los Angeles

Walt Disney and Roy O. Disney founded Disney Brothers Cartoon Studio in 1923 and got their start producing a series of silent Alice Comedies short films featuring a live-action child actress in an animated world.

Walt Disney an American entrepreneur, animator, writer, voice actor, and film producer and Roy O. Disney, an American businessman. Together Roy and Walt founded Disney Studios as brothers, but Walt later bought out most of Roy’s share in 1929.

Upon relocating to California, the Disney brothers initially started working in their uncle Robert Disney’s garage at 4406 Kingswell Avenue in the Los Feliz neighborhood of Los Angeles. The garage was saved from demolition in 1981 by Disney fans who rallied together to move it to its current location in 1984 in Garden Grove Historical Society Stanley Ranch Museum.
