That mouse would later provide the inspiration for Mickey Mouse. Disney's studio, where early animators cut their teeth making black-and-white silent cartoons, is still struggling. There are now plans for a green future.</p><p><strong>Paying Tribute in Missouri</strong></p> Thu, 29 Mar 2012 10:00:00 +0000 Laura Spencer 14756 at http://kcur.org Green Plans For Disney Studios
